About the Artist
Mandy got the sewing bug when she was a small child, watching her mom whip up fantastical Halloween costumes for herself and her brothers. She soon picked up her own needle and thread, and an obsession was born – first hand sewing clothes for her dolls and then machine sewing clothes and quilts for herself, family, and friends.
A proficient garment maker, Mandy has served as a pattern tester for Closet Core Patterns and currently serves as a Brand Ambassador for Minerva.com, a UK-based fabric and craft/sewing retailer.
