It probably started with my dad’s love of airplanes, bicycles, and tools. That led me to become a pilot, a pro cycling race mechanic, and now on to this new venture of sewing and design with my grandmother’s favorite tool – a sewing machine. My interest in sewing and bag design started when I realized that there was not a tool belt available that met my needs as a professional bike mechanic. Many sewing machines later, untold numbers of You Tube videos on sewing techniques, a lot of trial and error, testing, materials research, practical application and encouragement from family and friends has brought me to this point. What began as cycling centric products - the Quiver toolbelt, the down-under seat roll, and messenger bag, has expanded to include the purses, totes and any number of custom made products designed to meet the specific needs of customers.
