Why “Aunt Monica’s Attic”?
Of all the roles she had in her life, her favourite title is “Aunt”. A few years ago Aunt Monica’s nieces and her nephew came to Winnipeg to visit her as part of their cross-Canada family vacation. When they got home, the girls were asked what their favourite part of the trip was for them. Without hesitation they both said “Aunt Monica’s Attic!” The mannequins, fabrics, and activities in the attic made a huge impression. Aunt Monica’s Attic was born from Monica’s favourite role and her niece’s favourite part of their summer vacation.
About Aunt Monica
Aunt Monica has been crafting since childhood and wants to share that joy with others, inspiring creativity and imagination in the world. She enjoys doing several techniques including knitting, crochet, embroidery, sewing, and tatting. She has both a certificate in apparel design and a diploma in fashion design. She taught beginner sewing with the Winnipeg Leisure Guide program. Her tatted bookmark pattern was published in the spring 2015 edition of A Needle Pulling Thread magazine. When she is not designing, crafting or teaching, you will find her playing with her “ladies” Mojo and Linda, dogs adopted from Manitoba animal rescues, and helping her cats to have patience with these fun-loving energetic friends.
