MY NESTING ITCH
My name is Elvina. I started NewMomDesigns when I became... well...a new mom!
I took a break from an Interior Design career to care for my 2 kids and a new house. My nesting itch ( you know that, uncontrollable URGE to decorate+organize was in full swing when I ran into trouble of finding a modern, bold but still cute, and not overly sweet, child-friendly, preferably eco-friendly fabric for my son's nursery.
Sounds like a tall order from Starbucks, right?
(I'll have one grand-modern-bold-cute-sugar-free-boys fabricaccino, please!)
Well, unlike that Starbucks on the corner, my order was not fulfilled within 15 min.
I looked, and I looked, and I looked.... After searching for a while without any success, I came across Spoonflower, a site that allows you to print your OWN fabric designs!
YES!! I was instantly hooked!
ETSYShortly after I realizing that Textile design was a true passion, I joined Etsy community and opened NewMomDesigns, because being a part of this super talented, supportive group of artists from around the world, is wonderful! ( It's actually AWESOME, but we don't want to obuse this word too much, do we?)
selling fabric was great, but then folks who couldn't sew started to feel left out. (Hmmm....that's just sad....)
So I set out to find cool, creative, dedicated people to help me out. And I found them.
So, please, meet our whole team.
That’s me. I am the founder and owner of NewMomDesigns. I create all the designs,
photograph and edit, come up with new products, oversee the production, communicate with customers, keep up all our social platforms,
fill out orders and try to build this very website as we speak. I wear a lot of hats,but I am happy to do it!
That’s my mom! She is a creative genius who can literally create awesome things out of thin air! Besides sewings, she has recently discovered a great passion and skills for making unique soft toys out of children’s drawings. So is now officially the chief of TOYS department in our store.
