I hope that you are having a fashionably fabulous week.
You know me based on all the garments I make and share with you, but today I want to take you behind the seams and share my sewing journey with you. I also want to share with you four women who have been an inspiration to me. I’ll be sharing with you, in chronological order, the women I met and how they inspired me. I hope you enjoy 🙂
Meet Erica Bunker, Tara Davis, Erin Bohanon and Suzy Furrer. These are four women who inspired me and continue to inspire me in my sewing journey.
I will be doing a five-part series to tell you my story. My story of sewing. How it all started and how I ended up where I am now, spending days in my studio creating, when just a few years ago, I was writing useless code in a nerdy cubicle.
I cannot possibly squeeze all their amazing work and my story into this one blog post, so I will write about them one at a time. I met them, either virtually or in person starting in 2008
2008– Erica Bunker – Sewing Blogger, self-proclaimed sewing goddess
2009– Tara Davis, my teacher in 2009, now my colleague
2011– Suzy Furrer- My teacher in design school, director of Apparel Arts.
2012– Erin Bohanon- My previous “boss”, now my mentor and friend
I cannot wait to share my story with you and how I was impacted by these wonderful ladies. Stay tuned for part two of this series: Behind The Seams- Women who inspire me.
See you soon! I still have to show y’all my scary prom dress turned Minnie mouse DIY dress.
