Meet Kaviya

Kaviya started sewing after she started working as a window display artist about 12 years ago. Her mother was a sewer and offered to teach her. But she did not know any better and refused. That is a decision she regrets to this day because knowing how to sew is such a versatile skill for any maker or artist. She is a self taught sewer and calls her style very colorful, experimental and organic. She mostly make things for the home but her dream is to become an accomplished seamstress and sew her own clothes. Learning to quilt is another passion of hers. Even though learning to sew was born out of necessity, today it has become a source of calm and comfort to her. She is inspired by all the amazing women and men out there that are creating amazing things on their sewing machines, she is also inspired by vintage textiles and everything in nature.
