Both of Lori’s Italian grandmothers were extremely talented seamstresses, so when a Bernina sewing machine was gifted to her, she knew just what to do. And that turned out to be creating charming, vintage-inspired home wares with impeccable craftsmanship and a sharp eye for the details. It just takes an outing to the antique shop or fabric store to get the creative gears in motion—and knowing that she’s handmaking something one of a kind that will be cherished by someone else keeps the sewing machine whirring. Her grandma(s) would be proud.
