Story

“When I was a little girl, my grand-mum MumAnnie taught me how to sew. What a creativity! Having her at my side, everything was so easy. No need to annoy myself with paper cutting, pinning and outlining. She was taking care of everything. When I was 9, my parents offered me my first sewing machine.

Today, somehow, we consider that she is at the just beginning of the idea. And especially, the electronic device that makes the use of patterns “easy and fun”. Moreover, MumAnnie is extraordinary. That’s why, to thank her, we named the device « MumAnnie ».

Thanks Mum”
