Modista Modesta means Modest Designer in Spanish.
I taught my self to sew at the age of 11. My mom would collect blue chip stamps and I would put them together in the little books. We usually cashed them in often but for some reason or another we once acquired enough for one of the big rewards. I convinced her to get a sewing machine. When it arrived I opened it up and started reading the manual and translating it to spanish for my mother. I would do what the book said and I would show her how to do it. My mother never did sew anything but it started me on my path.
I then picked up on other crafts such as quilting, cross-stitch, embroidery, stamping, scrap booking, beading! I love picking up a book and teaching myself new things.
I taught my self how to knit by hand and machine a few years ago. I love doing and teaching all these crafts.
I have a Degree in Fashion Design with which I hope to some day have a Modest Formalwear clothing line, for right now we are starting small with PDF sewing patterns on Etsy or www.ModestEve.com
I am Mom to my daughter 20, and Step-Mom to two Sons 27 and 23. My husband and I have been together for 16 years, He retired from the US Navy after being in for 22+ Years.
I work for www.cochenille.com it's a company that produces Software for textile artists.
This is some of the all over the place stuff - that consumes my all over the place Life!
