- Heather Bailey
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?"- Marianne Williamson.
Heather Bailey gets chills every time she reads this quote. If she could accomplish one thing, it would be to encourage women to discover their fabulousness and find joy in creative expression. With a B.A. in Apparel Design and a knack for style, Heather has run successful businesses in both women and children’s accessories. Her designs were eagerly snatched up by celebrities and were offered by many of the world's most exclusive stores including Fred Segal, Henri Bendel, and Bloomingdales, as well as high-end boutiques in Japan, Hong Kong and Paris.
Sewing and crocheting by the age of eight and quilting by eleven, Heather has a long-standing love for traditional women's handicrafts. Over the years, her interests have grown to include knitting, spinning, weaving, stained glass, upholstery, ceramics, bead making, faux finishing, silver smithing, painting and children's illustration.
Through all her adventures, sewing has remained Heather's grand passion. Freshcut™, Heather's all-original debut collection for FreeSpirit, demonstrates Heather's talent for modern design, as well as her love for vintage nostalgia.
