My name is Yvette and I’m a fabric-holic.
I live in Singapore, with my hubby, and 2 little
hooligans lovely children.
Any questions – about crafting and Singapore – please send me a mail at yvette[at]midnightcrafts[dot]net.
Why Midnight Crafts? Hubby & I are chronic late-sleepers. And for me, working late at night after the kids are asleep means that I can work on my craft (or blog) without little ones underfoot and emails/phones interrupting me.
Why Craft? I guess it was maternal instinct that drew me towards the quilting and sewing sides of things. When I was pregnant with my eldest child, I just wanted to sew a nice quilt for him, for the home and for everyone I know. Maybe its the ‘nesting’ instinct when you are with a child? Now, I’m not only quilting, but I’m making coasters, buntings, t-shirt appliques, crayon wallets, etc… I LOVE IT. Handmade stuffs rock!
Why Blog – Again? While I have been posting on my socials more during my break from this website, I do miss writing and creating long-form posts. Many changes have happened in my life since I published my 1st post in 2008 and I thought it would be interesting to continue posting about my sewing journey here.
Hand or Machine sewing? I do both, actually. I’m handquilting on my oldest quilt WIP still and also Japanese kits. I really enjoy handpiecing, and they are great for me to sew on-the-go!
What’s coming up next? More Q&As, I suppose. Definitely more updates on my crafty escapades!
Thanks for reading!
