Hi I'm Berene, a modern quilt designer, speaker and community project instigator. My sewing patterns feature inspiring messages of positivity and hope, with the goal of making the world a kinder and more peaceful place. I am a big fan of “collective energy” and use community projects to corral fellow creatives to work together for change. These projects include awareness projects, collaborative community installations, fundraisers for social justice causes, and the Handmade Collective Awards - a bursary fund set up for the maker community to fund awards for BIPOC and 2SLGBTQ+ students.

My latest updates can be seen on Instagram: @happysewlucky. Follow me there to learn first about any new patterns or upcoming community projects.
