Hi there! My name is Vanessa and I own visuallyvee! I am a small home based business based out of Milton, Ontario.
Back in April 2020, as the pandemic was kicking into full gear, my wedding stationery business came to a grinding halt. All my clients have postponed to future dates when weddings could happen, or switched to microweddings within the government guidelines.
I have always worked two jobs, my full time job and my side business. Suddenly, I had a lot of free time on my hands. My husband had asked if I could make us fabric masks, since I knew how to do some basic sewing and we have a sewing machine. I thought i would give it a shot, and after my first attempt, I made an instagram post, and well, the rest is history. I started this shop in May, when inventory and order tracking was starting to be impossible, and I wanted you to have a great experience when buying your mask.
After the initial rush calmed down, I was able to venture into other items such as personalized wedding party masks, scrunchies, zipper bags, and purses and oh man, now I'm hooked for real! The ability to sew the purse you use everyday, really just blew my mind.
Over the last 12 months I have sewn over 4000 masks, hunted and found some of the most fun fabrics, mask supplies, and dived deep into a world of sewing I previously knew nothing about! It is so. much. fun.
All this would not be possible without you - so thank you. Thank you for keeping me focused on something when the world felt really unpredictable. Thank you for supporting a local canadian owned small business. Thank you for choosing to keep yourself and others safe, during this unprecedented time. And lastly, thanks for reading all the way to the end!
