Sau Fann Lee is a bit of a hoarder, but more importantly a mom of two, trying to tame these tendencies, holding onto too many sentimental and pretty things and none more sentimental than the tiny, cute, whimsical, soft and colourful clothes that her kids have outgrown. She began making quilts for her family as a way to capture the milestones and memories that each happy colour and pattern evoked. As her kids grew and as more and more was acquired, worn, passed down and outgrown, the more those heaps of old clothes grew into small mountains. Soon, she had more quilts/throws/blankets in our home than she had beds, sofas and comfy chairs! She had to do something with all of them, and then she couldn’t stop. No joke.
Responding to the massive amounts of waste that we generate in our everyday lives, she is interested in up-cycling materials that we would otherwise throw out or giveaway, transforming them into something surprising and new, creating unique, functional and beautiful pieces that tell a story, maybe your story.
