Our October meeting speaker will be Alexis Schmidt. Born and raised on Vancouver Island she currently resides in Port Alberni with her husband and 3 children. When her daughter was born in 2015 Alexis began sewing clothing for her, after a few years of sewing for enjoyment Alexis decided to try her hand at making a bag and was immediately hooked. She made all the rookie mistakes (including forgetting interfacing), and after about a year started designing her own patterns, releasing her first pattern in mid-2020 under the name Oro Rosa Patterns (named for her daughter).
