Designer Profiles

Alexandra Bordallo

When I was fifteen years old, I started to sew with my grandma's sewing machine. She also taught me how to crochet and knit. Since then, I have self taught myself how to sew bags, backpacks and accessories. A few years later, I discovered the quilting world and started following sewing blogs and video tutorials. It's like magic to create something pretty with pieces of fabric. In order to be happy and fulfilled, I need to be creatively challenged. I'm always looking for something new to learn.

Born and raised in city of Vic (near Barcelona), Spain I currently live with my husband Arnau and our son, Ricard. My passion for sewing and textile art is the reason why I started to learn how to draw and design repeating patterns in June 2014, when my son was born. In addition to sewing, my hobbies include illustrating, cooking, singing, reading books and imagining magical and whimsical worlds with my toddler. I love translating the beauty of nature into imperfect whimsical drawings. My son was also my "little assistant" when it came to designing my very first fabric line with Art Gallery Fabrics, Dew and Moss.
