When you start working on your Dreams, the universe surrounds you with the correct people.
Today I am sharing Stephanie’s dream, she is the founder of StichAway Designs, Handmade Embroidery Accessories.
I met her at the beginning of the year at an event in Miami, when we start talking about our projects we connected immediately.
Part of her designs come from a beautiful work made by talented indigenous women artisans in Guatemala as she is partnered with a fair trade organization that not only helps artisans get pay fairly but its the opportunity to provide indigenous women the ability to use her skills to support their families.
These kinds of projects were exactly what I was looking for Sharing Dreams. So I contacted Stephanie to share her story with us.
