I am a SEWIST. Fabric is my medium. Sewing is my method.
Putting them together is my art.
My pieces take many forms: coats, shirts, wraps, shawls, scarves, mitts, purses, pouches, collages.
The process is complete when my work is seen, felt, used, worn.
Peterborough NH became Pashya's home 20 years ago when she, her sewing machine, and her fabric collection of silks, velvets, saris, kimonos, neckties, wools, linens, buttons, and trims moved here from the 'flatland' where she participated in several cooperatives, and showed at DeCordova Style. She was an active and award winning member of the League of NH Craftsmen for 7 years, and now enjoys doing all sorts of custom work, and limited collections, and has resolved to use the fabric she has before adding to her stash.
