Meet Ava!

Seams Good Studio is proud to present Ava, our featured artist for Winter/Spring 2017. 
Ava brings deep power, skill and heart to her work.  Besides sewing, her talents include dance,
culinary arts and music.  We first worked together Summer Camp 2015. We are always lucky to have her brightening the studio.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience with us Ava

I do ballet.  
This year I was in the nutcracker, and I have been taking ballet for four years.  
I also just got on pointe. 

I also enjoy drawing, and baking.

I also sew.  
My grandma inspired me to sew 
because it’s fun when I get chances to sew with her.

Fabric also inspires me for what I want to make.

What challenges me the most?  
Dealing with the machine for example, 
if the needle breaks. 
Also hamsters  
(little tangles of thread balls underneath the seam) 
are annoying because it disrupts my focus and what I am doing.

I would like to start a shop with homemade clothes and toys 
for dogs and other animals.

I would like to see all of my stuff worldwide on dogs.


Some advice I would like to give to younger sew-ers or beginners 
is to start sewing with a happy and a creative mind.

Also, keep your mind open and be willing to try new things.
