Kleine Vogel means “little bird” in Dutch. My maiden name, Kusse, is Dutch. I’m quite proud of my Dutch heritage and visited the Netherlands where I became even more enamored with all things Dutch, especially the people!
I inherited my love of sewing and knitting and all things crafty from my paternal grandmother. She was a tailor and made the most beautiful clothing for us. I spent many hours as a young girl watching her create perfectly tailored pieces, and I was fortunate to be able to have her as a mentor and teacher.
Fast forward to 2017 and I took up photography and found myself looking up in to the sky, fascinated with birds and capturing them in pictures. The bluebird photo here is one of my favorites. I chose the bluebird for Kleine Vogel as it pays homage to my native New York (it’s the state bird).
I am passionate about creating things that have meaning, are made to last and become hand-me-downs. I'd love the opportunity to create something for you.
