Hi, I'm Susanne Firmenich. I have been designing colourful designs for fabrics under my label "Hamburger Liebe" since 2010. These fabrics now delight sewing enthusiasts in many countries around the world. Love led me to move from southern Germany to Hamburg in 2003. I had already secretly fallen in love with this beautiful city some time ago and then destiny worked its wonderful magic. This was how the name of my label "Hamburger Liebe" was born. I came across textile design by accident. In addition to my years working as an independent graphic designer I rediscovered my love of sewing and beautiful fabrics after the birth of my two children. I wanted to grow and to print my own designs on fabric. I was able to achieve this with a great deal of luck and lots of positive feedback from my blog readers. I have been writing my blog since 2008, where I publish numerous stories about my family and my two dogs and give free tutorials that are particularly suitable for those new to sewing. Photography is my second passion, therefore Instagram is my favourite app on my mobile. This is where I like to show the first sneak peaks for new designs and collections. I love my profession and develop my colourful designs with passion and enthusiasm.
