Name & Location: Megan Grandstaff, Chicago, IL, USA
How long have you been sewing: Since 2005. It was only during the Sew Weekly challenges in 2011 that I finally made something for myself to wear!
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I love the structure it gives my sewing, but also the freedom of interpretation. If I sit down at my sewing machine without a specific goal, I almost get overwhelmed by ideas. This gives me a chance to channel my efforts into something I will really enjoy.
What do you love most about sewing garments: The first moment I try a garment on and it fits perfectly.
What do you hate most about sewing garments: Hooks and eyes. If I can leave them off a garment, I will.
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: I would love to use all of the fabric in my stash! If I could get through the year without buying any fabric, I think that would be amazing.
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: I would like to run the Princess Half Marathon in 2:45:00 – which would be a big accomplishment considering I’m just getting over a femoral stress fracture!
