About the Author
”My name is Sara, and I live with my family in Chicago, Illinois. I have an amazing husband and two wonderful children. I love horses, sewing, photography, reading books, Australian Shepherds, and music. The blog was named for one of my favorite Jimmy Eat World songs that I had on a cute pink 7” record. It just sounded cool with the word ’sew’ in front of it.
I started blogging in September 2010 because I love sewing, and I am really inspired by the sewing community out in blogland. My blog is mostly about sewing. I am so intrigued by sewing. I love thinking about sewing pattern instructions, shopping online for fabric, and thinking about new ways to finish projects. Sewing is like solving a puzzle to me. There are always different ways to get from point A to point B, and the fabrics you use and the way you go about making things with them are what makes each sewn item out there in the world unique. ”
