As some of you know, I have decided to start a new business venture, an online boutique specializing in modern quilting fabrics (what our dreams are made of, right?), called The Fabric Unicorn. What some of might not know is that The Fabric Unicorn started as Pink Letter Studio.
In February 2020 I created my first Etsy shop - Pink Letter Studio to be a modern quilting destination, for quilters and home sewists a like. Pink Letter Studio eventually went on to become The Fabric Unicorn, after its first year of business. The Fabric Unicorn name now fully encompasses what I have strived for in my shop. I want to be your magical destination for all your fabric wants and needs. When you look for all the unique fabrics all curated together, a Unicorn of Fabric shops.
I am so lucky to have this opportunity to pursue this career path as an entrepreneur and a creative person.
On this blog I will be posting tutorials for some awesome projects, some quit a longs for some projects that I’ve been trying to do for years, some seasonal diys ( because aren’t they the best!), and a whole bunch of other surprises! So please join me on my adventure through my ever growing fabric stash!
All of this started way before I knew that this is what I wanted to do as my career. I learned how to sew at the age of 10 from my mum, and promptly got my own sewing machine for my birthday. When I went with my mum to pick up my sewing machine, there was a Saturday quilting group happening at the back of the store. I was hooked, then and there! For the next 7 or so years I would go once a month to what was called "Brother Group", as everyone in the class had Brother Sewing Machines. I fell in love with quilting and sewing and the camaraderie of the maker community. I was also the youngest member by about 30 years, but it was wonderful learning from women who had been honing their craft for so many years!
After spending so much time at a sewing machine, it was only fitting that I go to fashion design school and keep learning all I could about textiles and sewing. I got a Bachelors degree in Fashion Design, and went off to New York City to become something. I had no idea what I was expecting, but I made some amazing friends and learned about different aspects of the textiles industry. All that experience and learning brought me to open up Pink Letter Studio, and now a year later - The Fabric Unicorn. I am so happy that I have a space where I can continue to focus on the things that bring me joy, and to help bring all of you a slice of happiness too!
