I remember sitting by the fire with my parents on warm summer nights, and my dad would point up at the sparks floating up from the fire and say "there we go up in the sky"
The vintage Singer sewing machine I use was given to me by my aunt a couple years after my grandmother passed away. She and my grandmother had bought it at the Salvation Army. Even though my aunt already had a machine, my grandmother convinced her to buy it - "it's a good machine... you never know when you'll need it."
Lisa was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec and now makes her home in rural Eastern Ontario. A lover of all things crafty, she discovered quilting in 2015 which led to creating unique bags and accessories with the vibrant quilting fabrics she discovered in local quilt shops.
A few years ago I was looking for a new bag for myself, but all I could find were the basic black or brown handbags that were available at our big box store. I was fed up of blending in with everyone else - I wanted something fun and colourful, something that would stand out from the crowd. I found the vibrant colours & designs I was looking for at our local quilt shop... and FIre Sparks creations was born.
When not sewing, Lisa spends time with her husband David and their daughter. She has a deep love of nature and has a soft spot in her heart for the mountains and salt sea air of Newfoundland.
Lisa can also be found working as a lab technician in the biology department at Vanier College in Montreal, Quebec.
