About Ashley


My name is Ashley Tu’avao and I am the creator of the Lucky Lemon.  I have loved sewing and quilting and crafting for as long as I remember.  My mom used to help me create the crazy ideas that came into my mind.  My grandma taught me to crochet and sew while watching TV.  My other grandma would take to me the craft store when I went to visit and help me make stuff.  Basically… MAKING is just in my blood!

There are lots of creative outlets out there, but sewing has become my obsession.  It started with making a baby quilt for a friend but it got crazy when I saw the “Project of Doom.”  It’s a Harry Potter quilt by Jennifer Ofenstein at fandominstitches.com and when I saw it on Pintrest… I knew that I had to do whatever it took to learn how to make it!  Check it out here.  Now I can’t imagine another hobby bringing me this much joy.  There is just something so satisfying in cutting up boring fabric and sewing back together again to make something beautiful. 

I started the Lucky Lemon Shop as an etsy shop to sell my quilts and try to use up some of my ever-growing fabric stash.  I later discovered the joys of sewing my own clothes.  Later still came the joy of teaching others to sew too.  I now offer custom dresses and sewing patterns in my shop and I hope that The Lucky Lemon Shop website will be a place to come for basics about all things sewing with some real life fun thrown in!

I do have lots of other hobbies too like baking and soap making and watercolor painting and gardening. I have three babies. Dallas is 3.5, Hudson is 2 and Emma is 2 months. My hubby Junior and I got together in Novemeber 2012 and have never looked back. I also am a CA licensed physical therapist and love working with the elderly.
