Rhonda Buss wanted to sew as far back as she can remember. As a child, sewing represented the freedom to dress as she chose. What she didn't know at that time was that sewing would be the vehicle that would open up her world.
The Sew Weekly began as Mena Trott's attempt to document the process of sewing all of her own clothes in 2010. In 2011, four other contributors (Debi Fry, Adey Lim, Veronica Darling & Sarah Gabbart) joined her and for 52 weeks, they sewed based on a particular weekly theme. In 2012, The Sew Weekly became a much larger group blog with over 130 contributors sewing along each week.
