I grew up in Guatemala and learned how to sew at an early age. Little did I know that sewing would become my life's work. I love transforming fabric into a work-of-art. I also love that moment when a bride-to-be or the girl who is anticipating her Quinceañera puts on the dress of her dreams and it fits her perfectly because of my work. There is nothing like the look on her face in that moment.
From the time I arrived in the United States (a long time ago) I have worked in fine boutiques, at David's Bridal and others in their alteration's department. I still work at these locations part-time.
