"For me, sewing and designing fabrics is everything!"
Hello everyone! It is such a wonderful feeling when people get the chance to know you! I'm a passionate fabric designer & quilter that loves to be surrounded by beauty. Pretty little everyday things are what awaken my senses and stimulate me to design. I see the world for its beauty and majesty. The intricate, the ornate, the royal... All of this catches my eye.
At the age of nine, I sat down for the first time before my mom's sewing machine. It was so scary and exciting at the same time! When I was 13, I joined a sewing school in my native Argentina, where I learned everything I could about fabrics, dressmaking and patterns.
At 20, I met the One that was going to be my husband, the love of my life for 30 years, Walter Bravo. He is my friend, my confidant, my everything.
In 1989, we moved to the US while I became pregnant. Here, I was completely hooked to quilting! I never took a class, but with time, I began to learn about "traditional quilting" techniques. Hand-painting fabrics for my landscape quilts led me to design my first commercial collection. Being a designer for Art Gallery Fabrics is one of the biggest blessings I have in my life.
I am convinced that everybody is born "to do something" in life. It is possible that, in the path of your life, you will have some twists and turns at some moments; but in the end, you will always find your purpose, your destiny. Creating with fabrics is a passion I share with many of you. This is what I was born to do, and I am sure that this is what I will do for the rest of my life.
