This will probably be the most personal blog post I will share, but I think it’s important to tell you how this whole career of sewing and teaching came to be. What made Sandra V who she is today?
My Grandmother Mary was larger than life. She was beautiful, witty and she was a master seamstress, so she was fashionable, too. Her clothes were quite literally a work of art. And she made sure mine were, too. To say I adored her is an understatement.
When I was five years old, she took me from her shadows and taught me how to sew. She was patient and kind. She taught me to appreciate the details. I was hooked. Even today, I count sewing as one of the things I love most (behind my family of course).
