Mission: To provide inspiration and to expand interest in the art of sewing, being creative, and developing new talents! 

Hello! My name is Lesley Chaisson, growing up with parents who were artists, and very creative, gave me a foundation for being open-minded about my ability to develop my own talents.  My Mother told me that “I was born with a pair of scissors in my hand”, and when I was 8 years old, she let me use an old Singer from my Grandmother.  I began making clothes for my Strawberry Shortcake dolls, and that was it! I was completely hooked!!  At 14 I decided to make my first quilt, and I still remember the store my Father took me to so I could choose the fabric to make it.  He was so supportive in my efforts and even made me a frame so I could hand quilt the entire top once it was finished.  This began my fabric collecting career, yes, I consider it just that! I love to find wonderful fabrics and design modern, fun, and easy patterns for everyone to use. Each month, a new pattern will be featured in the mailer along with quality fabrics and supplies. Our goal is to help you save time shopping for your next project, and inspire you to develop your sewing and quilting skills! 

This box is available to anyone in Canada and the US, and you may purchase the mailer quarterly.  So why wait? It’s fast and easy to sign up and you will be on your way to something creative and fun! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at berrybirdy@yahoo.ca.
