This past weekend was so rewarding, long hours, but so much fun to be working side by side with talented costume designers and seamstresses. I feel very fortunate to have found 3 exceptional ladies from across Canada to share my passion for costume creation.
For several years I worked in '"The Sewing Room" of a local ballet school. As a volunteer I worked on average 30 to 40 hours a week for about 10 months of the year for several years. My love of of costumes kept me there for much longer than I should have. Then change happened and the door of "The Sewing Room" closed on me and for about a year I felt a little lost. Not only did I lose my connection to "The Room" but to the people I shared The Room with. I would from time to time be at the dance school and look at "The Room" and feel sad, an outsider and after giving so much of myself this loss created a hole in my life. But what happens to holes? They get filled in and this time I filled my hole with new wonderful people and my new path with Victoria's Tutu.
One door closed and another opened and now I have so much to look forward to I can look back at "The Room" with fond memories, after all it
was due to my experience in the sewing room that opened this brand new exciting door and I look forward to sharing this costume journey with you.
Even though I have been - Victoria's Tutu for a couple of years, this feels like the beginning. With the launch of my new website I feel ready to share what I do and what I love with you.
