For the past 20 years, I perfected my sewing techniques and I have fallen in love with the trade that allowed me to fulfill my dream of owning a business by buying the store that I loved so much which fuel my passion.
I am passionate of sewing since I was 10 years old. I am very good with my hands and I like crafts.
I love to help people and to find solutions to sewing problems. I love my job.
Passionate of art and crafts, I have done different types as long as I remember but sewing in particular for the past 14 years. I create skating dresses and costumes for musical shows for Top Passion at the Maison de la culture de Gatineau. I share my time between the office, Paquette Textiles and my passion since May 2011. I am also very happy to join the teachers of Paquette Textiles.
I have been sewing for at least 25 years doing different type of projects includes graduation gowns. I have multiple passions including knitting, crafts and painting. I am also adding quilting to those passions. I joined Paquette Textiles’ team to help you realise your projects.
I followed my dear Mother that taught me all the tricks of the sewing trade. I love sewing and I never stopped learning by taking sewing classes to get better. During my retirement, what better idea than to spent my free time in a sewing store... a child dream... working in a domain that I love!
When I was a child, I fell in love with manual and creative work. Knitting, drawing or any other artistic activities, I could never get enough. I am very detailed driven and I love work well done. My abilities learned through my formal artistic learning and in my professional life will allow me to help and guide you in your creativity.
My passion has always been sewing, especially medieval costumes, ma favorite. I love to create and invent new projects. I love textiles that let me evolve in my creation. I love Paquette Textiles, a family business, that let me join its great team. I hope to help you soon.
Sewing, knitting, all kinds of handiwork.... I like to undertake various projects and feel proud to see them thru. I started sewing over 30 years ago and I’m always curious about new things. I’m interested in what you want to do and nothing pleases me more than helping you if required.
I learned to sew from my mother and made my first dress at age 10. When I retired, I returned to sewing as a great creative outlet. I love to sew quilts, as well as clothing for myself, my family, and my grandchildren. I have learned a lot in the past few years and I am eager to share my knowledge and love of sewing with you.
I graduate in art and studied at the École de joaillerie de Montréal in several specialities. I am today at Paquette Textiles where I rediscover my passion for sewing. I was fortunate to have a family that supported me in my passion and today I can say that with all my art experience, I can help you solve your sewing problems.
Since a teenager, sewing and knitting nourished my creativity and my curiosity. Clohting, quilting, sock, sweatshirt... every project let me learn new technics and approaches. But the most enjoyable is to share my passion!
I learn to knit at shool around 9 years old and it is at this young age that I realized that knitting is a very enjoyable way to pass time. In my adulthood, knitting became a hobby for my leisure times, a way to create something with my hands, lower my stress when required and exchange with others that share my passion. Motivated and learning on my own, I learn to familiarize myself with the pattern's terminology.
To help by providing advice in the choice of wool, to understand a pattern or to teach knitting is a great satisfaction for me.
I am a second-year student in fashion at the Académie de Haute Couture Richard Robinson.
I exuberate creativity, this allowed me to be versatile in the arts at a very young age. Music, theatre, composition, slam, this artistic butterfly finally landed on the fashion flower.

I am passionate about arts and design since a young age. My grandmother is the one that taught me sewing, then with my mother, we would help each other in our projects. I love designing suits and coats and make them when I can. I am currently studying online to learn more about digital art and learn how to use my artistic talents in that domain. Later, I would like to have my own art and design company.
