Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!
First of all, I'm Becky, and I love to create beautiful and useful things with needle and thread. One of my friends once joked that I'm a pioneer girl born in the wrong century - I love to sew, knit, grow food and flowers, can tomato sauce, work with wood, and cook good food from scratch. I'm most inspired by people who follow their passions and live the life they dream of, even if it's unconventional. I live, sew, and write in a little brick house in Guelph, Ontario, which, luckily, is a place that happens to be full of inspiring people doing just that.

My love of sewing began with tiny doll clothes and stuffed animal sleeping bags, thanks to a very patient mom who let me have free reign over her sewing machine. I learned the basics of patchwork in high school, and made my first "real" quilt as a gift in 2006. But it wasn't until my friends started having babies a few years later that my quilting kicked into high gear. Then it was babies, and modern baby quilts, everywhere! Somewhere along the way, as word - and my quilts - spread, I started taking custom orders from friends, and friends-of-friends, for everything from quilts to crib bumpers. After I decided to take the leap to stay home with my daughters full time, Twelve Bees was born.

Now I am lucky enough to balance full time motherhood with creating things that I love. I try to sew at least a little bit every day (when toddler and baby allow), and I am thrilled to be able to share my skills and passion with others. Isn't that what life's all about?

Have a look around, follow me on Instagram if that's your thing (@twelvebees), and please feel free to get in touch. Thank you for supporting small, passionate, handmade goodness!
