Hi, I’m Beatriz (Bety) and I’m happy to share the love of sewing! Here is a little bit about myself.

I’m from Mexico, I’m married and have two beautiful cats, Leo and Luna. Yes, small family! although I come from a big family.

My mom thought me hand sewing and cross stitching when I was around 10 years old. I also was interested in learning how to use the sewing machine but it broke the first time I was about to use it! So that was the end of my adventure because we couldn’t afford to fix it.

Years later I started working in a company where they sale big rolls of quilted fabric, I learned how to use those huge sewing machines and also got a brief introduction to the industrial sewing machine. That’s how I got interested in sewing again!

My boyfriend who is my husband now, gave me my first sewing machine  years ago and  I started sewing as a hobby but eventually I discovered that this is what I really feel passionate about and I want to share my knowledge with others.

I learned by watching YouTube videos, reading sewing blogs and I also took an intensive sewing course and the Early Riser Fashion Designer course at Rightfully Sewn, located in downtown Missouri, which I highly recommend if you are looking for advanced sewing classes.

In 2018, I started my sewing blog Crear y Coser (in Spanish) where I share my projects and found out how many people want to learn to make their clothes or crafts. I love helping people and blogging it’s a great way to do it!

I wish I had found my passion earlier in life, that’s why I want to help kids to learn how to sew and discover all the great things they can create if they learn how to use a sewing machine.

When I came across the Kids Can Sew® Curriculum, I thought it was a great idea to introduce kids to sewing by using the colorful workbooks and sewing pattern kits, which makes the learning process more fun!

Looking forward to having your kid in my sewing studio soon. 🙂
