We are honored to introduce you to our four contestants who will be sewing up a storm with linen fabric.
These ladies have all swapped linen fabric and will be creating something with it for your viewing pleasures! Well, for your voting pleasure too! And if you want, for YOUR sewing pleasure; there will be a sew along, with prizes! Alright, here are the linen ladies:
Jen from A Jennuine Life:
My name is Jenn and most days you can read about my creative adventures on my blog at A Jennuine Life. I live in Michigan with my physicist husband Dave and we have two little girls, Arden (five) and Hadley (two).
I work part time as an accountant, and I enjoy combining the creative and analytic sides of my personality at my cutting table and sewing machine while my girls are sleeping. My version of an epic Friday night is drafting patterns and sewing in my studio. I’ve been sewing since I was a little girl, even creating doll clothes on my Grandma’s treadle foot Singer before I moved on to motorized versions. I became more serious about garment sewing when I found sewing blogs while Arden was a baby. I discovered the rush of drafting or modifying patterns as I gained experience and tried new techniques, and I have recently started selling PDF sewing patterns with my Camper Hat and Matinee Dress and Peplum Top patterns. I’m working on the next pattern right now which hopefully should be released some time around when I share my challenge garment.

Hi, I’m Sara. I blog at Gladys and Viv (named after my great-grandmother and honorary grandmother–they’re both super awesome). I live in Portland, Oregon, work in a library, and commute by bike. I started sewing during college when, being tall and picky, I couldn’t find what I wanted (or even needed) in ready-to-wear clothes. I’m still primarily a garment seamstress, and a selfish one at that–I’ve sewn a few pieces of clothing for other people, as well as the odd item not meant to be worn, but mostly I just make clothes for myself. I mean, I do have to wear something… I often use vintage patterns and, when I can, vintage or thrifted fabric. And a vintage machine–a Singer 301A from the early ‘50s (that’s it behind me in the picture). I’m really honored, and excited, to be a part of Challenge Create. Can’t wait to see what everyone makes!
I’m on Pinterest here: http://www.pinterest.com/gladysandviv/ and my blog is http://gladysandviv.blogspot.com, but I’m not much good with social media, so that’s it for me. Thanks again for inviting me to be involved with this!
Well, there you have it! Isn’t it going to be an awesome week? We are absolutely delighted to have these ladies using linen fabric to sew up their creations for us! How about you, are you going to sew along with Linen Week for Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition?
Make it beautiful,
