Hey there! I’m RaeAnna and I blog at Sewing Mama RaeAnna where the featured stars are my 2 year old daughter and 4 year old son! Sewing for my kids is one activity that keeps my creative juices flowing! Before jumping into blogging I was an elementary music teacher and I LOVED using my creativity to come up with active lesson plans that the kids would love. Now, I teach several afternoon piano students and a few music classes at my son’s preschool.
Night-time sewing is what works for me….. I try to sew during my 2 year old’s nap but that’s usually the time for cleaning house! I love coffee, health food, the Muppets, and mystery novels!
Ashley and Emily (Frances & Suzanne) are such wonderful ladies and I’m very privileged to join in this FLIP challenge! It is a wonderful feeling to belong to a “community” of fellow sewing lovers!
Hi, everyone! I’m Veronica, the happy seamstress behind the blog, sewVery, and I’m super excited to be a part of Ashley and Emily’s February Flip This Pattern competition.
While my professional background is in civil engineering and specifically airport design and planning, I stepped away from my career in 2008 to become a full-time stay-at-home mom to my son and daughter. When my daughter was two years old, I sewed new valances for her room and rediscovered my love of sewing and crafting. Soon after, I began reading blogs daily and with encouragement and technical help from my husband, started my own blog, sewVery, as a way to chronicle my sewing projects, share pictures of my children with family and friends, and challenge myself to improve not only my sewing but my written communication and photography skills as well.
Today, nearly two and a half years later, I have come to realize that sewing and blogging are my passions! I enjoy sharing pattern reviews, all the outfits I make my four (nearly five)-year-old daughter as well as the purses and other sewing and crafty projects that I put together. Best of all, this gig has introduced me to countless wonderful people all across the world that I would otherwise never know!
The first time I read the blog Frances Suzanne I was impressed and continue to be blown away with each entry these sisters make! I’m honored to have been asked to participate in their event and look forward to seeing what everyone else creates as this month’s Flip!
And, what competitor prizes are up for grabs this month?? How about some patterns AND fabric for one of these lucky ladies, chosen as “viewers’ choice winner” at the end of the month??
Aside from the thrill of victory, the “viewers’ choice winner” will receive the following from our fabulous sponsors:
