Linda Prieto is the founder of Telalinda. Linda began sewing at a young age. Mostly self-taught through trial and error, sewing was always a constant. The interest in vintage and old things began while attending flea markets with her dad throughout the city of Chicago. Linda sews reproduction garments, primarily from the 1930's and 1940's. As her collection of vintage fabric accumulated for garment sewing, the intention came about when longing for more of that special piece. While working as a photo retoucher, Linda learned additional features of photoshop and became competent in Illustrator to re-create authentic timeless pattern designs.
