What you sell and why?
When and how you got started?
I got started knitting scarves just to get some creative itch out and then moved to tearing apart old clothes, seeing how they were made and turning them into something new/better. Then I discovered corsetry and fell in love with it, I started tearing apart mass produced corsets and trying to learn how to build my own... well my Grammie caught wind of this and spilt the beans that she once made corsets, she passed on the finer bits of that knowledge to me. Now i've been sewing so long and neglecting my knitting that i've forgotten how to knit... in the words of my Grammie "Nikki's knitting is holier than the pope" :)
How did you decide on your shop name?
Is there an item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
Yes, For now- I would love nothing more than to be able to work in my studio and make a living at it, however i'm not quite there yet... constantly working towards that goal though.
8. Are there other crafts you’d like to try?
I have ALWAYS wanted to try glass blowing, however I have yet to find anywhere local to teach me.
Please provide 5 random facts about yourself to help the team get to know you better. Thank you!
-By day I am an engineer, by night a sewing and crafting machine
-I play rollerderby! I play with STAHR (the st. albert heavenly rollers), they call me screamstress- likely because I never shut up.
-My studio space was coined the 'little house of horrors' by my models- because I have so much strange stuff crammed in there.
-Going with the little house of horrors theme; for christmas I was gifted an anotomical skeleton, I named him Leonard, because 'he's dead Jim'. *BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT EVER!*
making a good friends wedding dress- I think I finally have the confidence to dive in there!
