Welcome to the Queendom of Silently Loud!
First order of business:
A 20-something, badass sewist from a small town in South Jersey. Now passively living in Philadelphia. As a child, I found sewing to quite mundane but it made my mother happy, and it made her mother happy and put food on the table for her mother and all those who came later.
Then one day it became a source of joy.

This is a gift handed down to me, and thank goodness. With time, I’ve grown to love and accept this as a part of my DNA.
A social justice warrior pretty much my entire life, I have always had a lot to say. I also have had moments of trouble trying to say it. I’m a naturally awkward black girl with a lot of spunk.
We all have our outlets — the ways that we choose to express ourselves.
I pray that you’ve found yours.
Mine has always been fashion, and over time my relationship with sewing has truly blossomed. Even as a sewist I still have a lot of shit to say.
If you find my work to be a bit spicy,
sorry to inform you…
I am only just warming up.
