Hi, my name is Missy Sequeira. Iʼve been sewing for the last 11 years as a hobby. I started making bags about 8 years ago out of repurposed fabrics (up cycling be for up cycling was cool). I loved the creativity that came with putting odd fabrics together, or using fabrics in different ways. For example, using suede skirts as the leather bottoms of a tote bag or using curtain ruffles to make the cutest little apron youʼve ever seen. It was very creative and the designs were endless. Sewing is my happy place.
My husband and I retired in 2016, sold our house and bought a 44ft sailboat. After downsizing our life and moving aboard our sailboat, sv Invictus, the sewing machine made the cut and sailed south with us. read full bio here!
