"Sewing is a language of the heart. With each bag that I sew I consider it a love note, and a connection is formed with the person who will eventually own it." – Judith

A survivor of terrible trauma, Judith first began sewing as a way to keep herself active and engaged after years of suffering. Soon she realized that the process was actually healing her and told us, “Sewing is therapy to me. It helps me channel negative energy into beautiful pieces of shareable love”.

Now that she has found her passion, Judith wants to help other women heal who have suffered similar trauma. Her goal is to start a program to train other women as seamstresses and to then eventually employ them as her own business grows.

Her focus and dedication have had an enormous impact on her recovery, and now in the lives of other women. She says that with each stitch, she is slowly taking back her power, rebuilding herself after years of suffering.
