How long have you been sewing: I feel in love in 9th Grade Home Ec and haven’t stopped since.
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: To challenge myself to break out of my “I only sew for special occasions” routine.
What do you love most about sewing garments: When someone compliments me on my outfit and I say “Thanks! I made it”. They usually follow up with “Can you make me one?”
What do you hate most about sewing garments: HEMMING!!
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: I want to make something for myself every week!
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Be more social and explore the new city I call home, Charlotte, NC.
What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: The Sew Weekly, Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing, Coletterie, Grosgrain, Sewaholic… just to name a few.
