Profile Information

I am an awesome:
I was born and raised in Sweden, studied in Switzerland and England, worked in Holland, Spain and Belgium, and lived 12 years in Japan, before moving to the US. While in Tokyo, I fell in love with vintage kimono and obi fabrics and started collecting. I have used some fabrics in quilts, but when returning to the US last year, I started to design and sell greeting cards using these beautiful fabrics. Each design is hand cut which is quite time consuming, but it also makes them unique, since not two cards look the same, due to the changing patterns of the kimono. Check out my websites: www.kimonocards.com and kimonocards.etsy.com
My sewing interests are:
home decor, quilting
My sewing machine(s):
Singer

Mona, thank you for compliementing the picture quilt! I made this for a customer that brought her pictures with her. I had to Photoshop a few of the pictures due to age and the weding photo was torn down on the bottom right all the way to her dress. She wanted this wallhanging done for her husband for their aniversary. And she wanted the photo's sewn on top of the material instead of pieced into other material. Customers always get what they want.

I love the card you left me, and I see that you have a web page. Just from the slide show I can see you are very talented. Your work is just awsome!

Hi Mona, You asked about sewing on slippery fabrics like silk. Well I use a walking foot. And also a straight stitch foot and straight stitch template that has a single h*** instead of a wide opening, but I have to remember to change it when I do zigzag sew because I always break the needle.
