Hi! My name is Suzy Fairchild and I am originally from Issaquah, Washington. I spent 7 years in London studying fashion design and working in the industry, making some great friends and having some fab adventures! I returned to Seattle and worked as designer for Nordstrom for 5 years until it was time for me to branch out on my own. I have spent the past year making handbags, accessories and home furnishings recycled from materials I collected from dumpster diving at Nordstrom, donated from local furniture companies and lots of estate sale(ing). I live in Phinney Ridge in a pink house with my lovely boyfriend Jason, Lucy the big black dog and Molly the little fluffy black cat. I spend every day in my studio creating new product for my website, local shops and my fabulous customers. I usually acquire more fabric and trims than I can use in my lifetime, so have started an ebay store to hand-off some of my addiction to others. I will update my blog as often as I can with funky new fabrics and projects that I am working on and share the fun!
