My Sew Story:

I started sewing in 2014 a few months after I left a toxicrelationship with the father of my youngest daughter. "Everything" hit me at once after that. I had my first daughter at sixteen years old, several years before, so I already knew single motherhood for quite a while by this point, and suddenly I was finding myself in the same situation again. This time with twochildren. Family health issues arose soon after, a car accident, and major self-doubt. I was seriously overwhelmed and needed an escape something to keep my mind focused on anything other than what I was going though.

As you have probably guessed, I choose to focus my energy on something more positive, the art of sewing. It started rocky at first and everything I made was a mess but I stuck to it and it has been so rewarding to watch my skills and love for sewing grow. Sewing gives me something to look forward to and helps me express my creative energy. The best part to me is that I will never "know" it all. Sewing is one of those hobbies that if we keep at it we will always learn something newin return. So, I've created a new story for myself, one about evolving, loving, growing and nurturing my craft and connecting with other like minded people along the way.

I'm proud to say that after 5 years on this sewing adventure I have turned my creative outlet and passion into my pattern business and everyday I get to share it with amazing creative people just like you. I'm the pattern designer behind Rosy Peña Patterns, and I encourage you to check it out and support small woman owned businesses. Every amount earned helps support my girls and I as well as gets invested back into growing the business and creating more amazing patterns. We appreciate all of your support and it is very well received!

I encourage you to stick around and grow with this awesome community, there are so many creative minds just like you, that love to connect and express their talents with the world. Know that I love you and that you have so much potential inside of you. I'm so happy that you're here on this journey, I'll leave you with my favorite quote that reallyresonated with me during the toughest time in my life and continues to do so, It's simple but so powerful if you really listen;

"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have". - Theodore Rosevelt

All my love,
