Amanda started sewing in the fall of 2009 and is a New York City gal who loves mid-century styles and historic architecture. Though a lover of dresses first and foremost, she tries hard to pay more attention to sewing separates.
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.
