My very first blog post, I am so excited!!! I have dreamed and schemed for a very long time about this day so I am most humbled and thankful.
Let me introduce myself. I am Karen Bakia and I live in Minneapolis MN (Go Vikings). I am originally from Cameroon in West-Central Africa and I love fashion and all creative arts. I started learning to sew about 8 months ago. I tried to get a dress made for myself and was floored by how much it would cost to make clothing from all the beautiful Ankara fabric I had at home. I have since become a sew-enthusiast and would love to share my journey through this media which I find very rewarding. I have mostly learned through YouTube videos and the blogs of some amazing seamstresses who share their art. I have a long way to go before I can truly call myself an accomplished tailor, but so far I can say this art is so rewarding and the possibilities are endless.
Welcome to my journey and I hope I can make a positive contribution to another’s craft like so many others have done for me!
Peace love and kisses 🙂
