I've always wanted to be my own boss. I'm an artistic person, I change from one interest to the next. That was my main problem, I wouldn't focus on one thing, one product. Finally one night while I was sewing I realized that the tomato pincushion just wasn't the product for me. I wanted something fun, something COLORFUL! After cutting two squares from some of my favorite fabrics and sewing them together. I knew that I couldn't stop making pincushions, they were so fun to make. I have gone ahead and turned it into a small business that I hope will grow into something bigger and better. A better future and something that brings smiles to all around the world.
