of La Todera
I come from a long line of seamstresses and quilters and have been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember. My formal training was in Graphic Design, but it wasn’t until I got married and moved to Buenos Aires that my deep love and passion for needlework was truly ignited. The crafters I met in Buenos Aires were incredibly gifted and very resourceful; using their limitless creativity to create beauty using limited supplies.
La Todera is an invented Spanish word that was given to me by a good friend, and means “a woman who does everything.” My work brings a unique sense of urban style to everyday things, which reflects both my Midwestern and international experiences.
I hope you enjoy my patterns and fabrics as much as I did creating them!
