Mona has loved sewing since her childhood when she would watch her mother turn fabric into clothing. At eight years old, she was granted permission to use the sewing machine. Within a few years, she was making her own school clothes. She fell in love with tailored clothing at 16 when she used her birthday money to take a garment sewing class. As Mona raised her sons, she learned how to hand smock and began an heirloom sewing business. She sold made-to order baptismal and christening gowns, crib quilts, and outfits for children. When her sons got older, Mona was inspired to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps and began quilting. She had always admired the quilts her grandmother made and wanted to recreate that magic for her sons. When her family moved to the San Jose area, she attended the Pacific International Quilt Festival. She saw the Wearable Art competition and was inspired once again. Here were her two loves, tailoring and quilting, combined! It was here that she purchased her first embroidery and sewing combo machine and digitizing software. Mona began making wearable art and embroidered creations and selling them at craft shows. Mona has spent the 15 years since sewing for the public; working in sewing machine sales and teaching classes on garment-making, quilting, and embroidery to sewists of all levels.
