Hi I'm Silvia! I like chocolate, a lot. I enjoy the beach and being outdoors. In fact, summer is my favorite season. But above all, I love to sew. Quilting and garment sewing are how I express creativity, feel empowered and inspire others.
I studied fashion design in Brazil and patternmaking technology at FIT in NYC. I interned and worked at fashion houses, managed apparel stores and drafted custom made patterns for interior design companies.
Now, I get to play. I love designing quilts, writing patterns, and teaching quilting and garment sewing while doing the hardest job of all, raising two young girls.
Many of my quilts have been featured in the Modern Patchwork magazine, QuiltCon magazine and Make it! Patchwork magazine and also in many shows across the United States.
