Candice Ayala

Candice Ayala is the owner and founder of SewingPortfolios.com. She spent the first 28 years of her life in Belize, and now resides in California with her husband and two children. She has a degree in General Studies and speaks three languages.   While both of her grandmothers were the respective seamstresses for their village, Candice didn't try her hand at sewing until her daughter was born seven years ago.   By day, she works on the ocean (literally on the ocean in Santa Monica) as an Administrative Assistant, and in all the times in between, she's a sewing blogger at CandiceAyala.com, PDF pattern designer, host of her own show called #FabricFriyaaay and content creator for various fabric manufacturing companies, online fabric stores and various sewing magazines. While Candice enjoys pairing patterns with fabric and creating new sews, she finds the most joy in upcycling and refashioning old clothes to create new ones. Her attention to detail, and obsession with clean finishes and symmetry is credited to her OCD tendencies, which is something that she now views as her “sew-per” power.
