Beata Laurenson is a recently married university student from Melbourne, Australia. She hopes taking part in the Sew Weekly challenges each week will inspire her to improve her sewing skills and update her wardrobe.
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.
