My name is Ashley Tu’avao and I am the creator of the Lucky Lemon Shop. 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 quilting 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 Harry Potter quilt by Jennifer Ofenstein at fandominstitches.com on good old Pintrest and knew that I had to do whatever it took to learn how to make it! 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 also love the idea of something so fun for me to make being gifted to a loved one and bringing snuggley warmth to it’s new owner.
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 soon realized that I also loved to help people make their own quilts and started developing quilt patterns which are also for sale on etsy. It has taken me much trial and error, lots of seam ripping, and many youtube binges to learn how to make a decent quilt and I want to help YOU bypass some of that pain. The Lucky Lemon Shop website is a place to come for basics about quilting, creative inspiration, and some real life fun thrown in!
