I have studied and worked in textiles for the last 12 years. I am a graduate of the Craft and Design Textiles program at Sheridan College. My first textile love was knitting but I have grown to love so many processes throughout the years, from embroidery to felting to block printing and screen printing. In my final year at Sheridan my thesis work was about quilting and natural dyeing, and this is still the focus of my work today.

My dream for Dear Gemini was to create a space that is a shopping destination for yarn, fabric and craft supplies; a classroom where people can learn to knit, sew, mend and craft; and a studio space where people can sew and craft hourly, weekly or monthly. A community hub for creativity and sustainability. My focus has always been on sustainability so I stock only natural fibres, with a focus on organic and sustainable fibres.
