My name is Marie-Fleurine (well – mostly just Fleurine) and I live in the town of Tromsø, far in the north of Norway. I am actually German, but my love for Norway and my Norwegian husband brought me to Norway in 2011. Now we live with our dog Sara in our lovely little flat, the scenic and breathtaking landscape of Northern Norway right outside our door.
I started sewing in early 2015, while I was writing my master thesis. I needed a good reason to procrastinate and something a little more “hands-on” to do while writing. My mother-in-law gave me an old Husqvarna Viking sewing machine and I started with some easy quilting. But what should I do with the things I quilted? I didn’t want to have our house full of quilted blankets and pillows… Somehow I realized that it is actually possible to sew clothes and I got immediately hooked. I spent hours and hours sewing, looking for patterns (preferably from indie designers), fabric (I LOVE Miss Matatabi!) and the inspiring creations of others.
Today I am sewing with a Janome Skyline s7.
