I’ve had a passion for textiles for as long as I can remember. An avid sewer, quilter, and knitter by age 8, my teddy bear had the best outfits and blankets in the neighbourhood. At university I combined Art History with Japanese Studies, focusing on the history of craft and textiles in Europe and Asia. Today I run Red Thread, to share my love of great fabric and handmade things with others.
Red Thread is my line of handmade women's and children’s clothing. I also make patchwork: quilts, pillows, and cards. Red Thread had its debut at the Spring One of Kind Show in 2005, and it’s been going strong ever since. I search endlessly for beautiful fabrics that can be combined in interesting ways. Where I try to be innovative is in creating versatile pieces that can be well-worn and loved for years. My most popular dress for years has been my caterpillar dress, a one-size dress that fits from about 12 months to 3 years, transitioning gradually to a top. I love creating beautiful products with lasting value, and I love the connection I feel with my customers, many of whom come back year after year.
My clothing is made carefully in small batches, using very high quality fabrics. The scraps are saved rather than discarded, and I love sewing them into patchwork art. Many of my customers tell me that people stop them or their children on the street to comment about their Red Thread pieces; in a world of mass-production, clothing that’s made with this much personal attention is special.
