Get to Know

a common thread is a one woman sweatshop, with everything handmade by me, stefanie. i make my crafts in brooklyn.

i started sewing and crafting at an age when it was probably unsafe for my little fingers to be near a sewing machine. however, i had a baby doll with no sleeping arrangements and that sleeping bag wasn\'t going to make itself. so, my mom taught me how to turn on the sewing machine and stitch two straight lines and away i went. suddenly a little square of my granddad\'s old golf pants was transformed into the cutest little plaid doll sleeping bag, and i was hooked. since then, i\'ve been keeping craft-busy with sewing, knitting, crocheting and jewelry-making.

when i\'m not playing dress-up in my creations, i\'m working on my ph.d. in cognitive psychology and making the world more user-friendly.
