Launching a dream - Knot n Stitch by Vandana Rajesh. With butterflies in the tummy and stars in my eyes I am so glad that I have taken the plunge into a world that I had so far seen only in my dreams. A baby step so far, but making that little move has been such an exciting feeling and such a learning experience.
Fabrics have been a weakness all along and my exploding cupboards with stashes of fabrics purchased from various places and vendors stand witness to this fact. Turning these pieces of cloth into something beautiful that can transform any space is truly a magical feeling. At KnotnStitch every creation from the stage of conceiving to piecing, embellishing and finishing is a journey where I am learning every step of the way. With no formal training or education in the field of fabrics it has been a fun trip so far discovering new techniques , new fabrics , new weaves and the process of fabric manipulation and creating textures. Each of the smocked cushion covers and the quilts are done by me and I am loving being able to create handmade.
The gap between dreams to reality is definitely one that teaches you many things. Making jewelry is a relatively new found passion of mine, it has been only about 2 years. Everything here at Knotnstitch, whether it be sourcing fabrics, buying materials for jewelry, the designing and making process to finally the packaging and despatch is dont by me and only ME. I am enjoying every step of this journey and with your support and encouragement, hope to see the KnotnStitch venture going places and having more new collborations. At KnotnStitch you can be sure that every piece that you see and buy is a labour of love and a small part of my big dream.
