Hello! I’m Flo!
I’m a 36 years old mother of 4 kids and living in Palm Bay, FL with my husband Mike. Born and raised in the Philippines. I love to sew, anything arts & crafts, plan events and share! I basically love anything arts & crafts. I consider myself a lifelong learner and easy going. Studied Political Science and Business management in college – but I never finished even after 4 years in college. ( I got married before I could – and no regrets!) I was part of the debate team from highschool to college, while working part-time and DJ at our local radio station. I have always worked closely with children since highschool – I started to tutor children in our neighborhood when I was 13 years old.
I started Fairythimbles with the help of my mother. It all started as a way to keep my mother busy, bring extra money to pay for my kids extra curricular activities. And, 3 years later it has gone from my formal living room to a 400 sq.ft office space and now a 1,100 sq.ft commercial space! I slowly invited other homeschool mom friends to come and teach a class for homeschoolers. It quickly morphed into a place for learning more than just sewing. A one stop resource for our fellow homeschoolers.
Most of all, I love to meet people! And, I love to talk about creative life and listen to my students stories! If your new to the area and looking for something fun to do or just want to check us out – stop by at the studio!
