Sometimes decisions are hard to make. Sometimes they aren't. Victoria knew that when she had kids, she wanted to be at home to care for them for the first several years of their lives. Finding a job with flexible hours that she could do from home was a tougher fix. Victoria comes from a long line of craftswomen; she was doing cross stitch since the age of six and was hand-piecing patchwork soon after that (she hasn't stopped since!). Encouraged by friends to share a booth at the Renegade Craft Fair, Victoria took some of her hand-stitched applique books. People loved them, and just like that the decision to start 'The Binderie' was made.
