Yay for this month’s sponsor: b. handmade designs!
In 2006, I found a love for sewing again, well with the help of a brand new Bernina sewing machine. I’ve been sewing since I was 18, I’m 35 now. And it’s been an on again off again relationship for years. At that point in my life, I had recently moved from Missoula to Helena, a huge change for me, and moved from working with the Forest Service to the private sector doing GIS mapping and watershed analysis.
All of your patterns are your designs. Tell us a bit about what the development process like.
Who/what inspires you?
I get inspiration from many facets in life, from my family and friends, other artists, natural elements, etc. Sometimes inspiration strikes me at the oddest times. These days my head is so full of ideas that I seriously am in need of a clone to help myself out! Actually I need that clone to help me out in the more mundane tasks in life like cleaning my house or paying my bills…
Whenever it’s available my family chooses to make purchases straight from the maker. It’s a wonderful, meaningful exchange where we end up with unique, well-crafted items and directly support an artist/crafter/maker. Becky makes it easy with b. handmade: her beautiful items are affordable and original. Thanks, b. handmade designs!
