I discovered my passion for fabrics around the age of five when my grandmother sewed my very first rag doll, Panona. I quickly created a simple outfit from a patchwork of fabric scraps. Before long, Panona had a custom designer wardrobe! Two decades later, when my daughter was young, I was inspired to create real-life, functional clothes and matching accessories to complete the look.
I had always enjoyed sewing new designs for myself, but never imagined turning my passion into a business. It wasn’t until my work began to spread to others that I realized I could love my career. I began filling requests for eco-conscious handbags and as popular as they were, I decided to make extra orders to sell to local shops. One day, I brought them to a high-end fashion boutique. While there, I was also asked to reproduce a garment by the dozen. When I delivered my work to the boutique, they sold out within three hours.Since then, I have taken my lifetime of experience into each unique design I create. The best part of my work is the many different projects I may work on within a single day– I am never bored! I simply love sharing this special art form; creating with passion to inspire the world.

At Cida Sew Shop we will take your vision, expand and transform into your reality. We don’t believe that one size fits all, because we are not all. Each one of us are unique individuals and we deserve nothing but the best. How a garment fits you can change how the world perceives you, giving you the confidence and the power to represent yourself in a big way. Your accessories and your home describe who you really are in a nutshell.
By customizing and not just picking something off the shelf it shows how much you care about your image, what you represent and how you expect to be treated.
