Pellon: What does your creative process entail?
Taylor: I am super organized. I would like to say that I look like a mad genius, but that’s not true. I have 3 of 4 idea lists at all times and when an idea come to me I jot it down quick even in the middle of the night!
P: Why do you enjoy sewing & crafting?
T: It’s how I relax. My whole life is loud and fast so it is the only time I’m not listening or talking. I also love that I can start from a piece of fabric and in less than an hour I can make something beautiful. Instant gratification.
P: What tips or tricks learned through experience can you share?
T: Always measure twice, it still gets me! I am bad with numbers, so about once a week I cut something wrong. Also, a serger is a very good investment.
P: When and why did you start sewing/quilting/crafting?
T: I can’t remember not being crafty and creative. I started sewing around the age of 12. I loved having something unique that no one else had.
P: What triggers you to start a project?
T: If I don’t have a project going on I feel weird! I am always working on something. I usually start out of necessity but then it leads to something else which then leads to something else…
