Yes, I sew A LOT. I didn't know my grandmother very well but she sewed A LOT too and seeing as noone else in my family is that nutty about it I guess I got it from her. These days I can be found in my sewing room looking out over Granville Island here in lovely Vancouver, Canada.

For my day job I work for a big ecomm company so it isn't too surprising that I created Mabel as a pet project. It started with some baby booties that I made in the evenings after work and now I have all sorts of wonders in my online store.

I describe my creations as "vintage-inspired modern" and always like to have a throwback to bygone decades baked into everything. If you could see my house you would see that I very much live this way as my place is littered with vintage rotary phones, film cameras and Rubiks cubes.

Right now I just sell on Etsy and my website (in the process of redesigning that one) but I hope to get into stores, both online and brick and mortar, soon. If one day I walk down the street and see a babe wearing my duds I'll know that I've made it!
