Hi, my name is Yoan. Just a girl who loves to sew, quilt, and making videos. I always have the passion of sewing since I was a little girl. I used to sew (by hand) my own Barbie doll's clothes out of scraps that I got from an older lady neighbor who was a seamstress, and was kind enough to teach me the basic of hand sewing. I could still vividly remember how happy I was when she handed over a bag of fabric scraps for me to play with.
About 8 years ago, due to experiencing the so called "burnout" with my job in corporate world, I started out sewing again simply to escape and relax after a busy day at work.
I originally started this blog and my Youtube channel out of boredom and feeling of isolation during postpartum, also to record my little sewing and quilting journey. I mainly focus on bag making, modern quilts, and scrap busting projects, and would typically post 2-3 videos a month.
I currently reside in a high mountain town of Northern Arizona with my husband, and our 3 year-old son. Beside sewing and making videos, I also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, crocheting and reading.
Can I sell the stuffs that I make from your designs and tutorials for my handmade business?
What sewing machine do you use?
Janome DC 2014 and Juki TL-18QVP
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Indonesia, however I left the country since I was in my early 20's, and been living as an expat since, 7 years in Dubai, UAE; and in the US for the past 5 years - hence my odd mixed up accent :D.
How old are you?
34 years old
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Sewing!
