Today we have the honor of introducing you to four talented ladies who will be sewing up a storm with knit fabric during week 4 of Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition. Sewing with knit fabric fabric is a very new skill for us, so we can’t wait to be inspired by what these ladies produce!
Knit Fabric Contestants:
Scary from Shaffer Sisters:
- My family are my very best friends. Which means my life is full of 2-3 hour phone calls to Jo and once a week my family spends a whole day having fun (which Ryder has termed “Family Fun Day”).
- I love to cook as much as I love to sew. I hope to one day write a cookbook and own a little diner.
- Some day I hope I get to move to Southern Utah. Where I would spend all my time hiking, photographing the national parks & spend the winter sewing.
- I asked my husband on our first date, but he asked me on every one after that. We were each others first kiss and he is the calm to my craziness.
- I am shy in person, and long winded in writing.
The famous Karly from Paisley Roots:
Hey! I’m Karly from Paisley Roots. Mother of 5 and craft addict. I mostly sew to keep my kids dressed in clothes that will fit them (we all have the “bean pole” disease), but I have also been working on my own line of patterns and am just having fun blogging. In my ever elusive free time I love to read, explore, paint, travel and pretend I know how to keep plants alive for longer than a day. I’m so excited to be in Skirt Fixations Series!
Charity from SayGrrSewing:
Here is a little about me:
I am a seamstress who hates raw edges, loves complicated designs and little details, and who also adores simple elegance. I am constantly working on perfecting fit, and I create most of the patterns I sew for myself and my daughters.
I’m a baker who loves chocolate and thinks dessert isn’t worth eating if it’s too healthy, a cook who far too often ends up just making something quick for dinner, a crafter whose worst enemy is hot glue, the slowest crocheter and knitter in history, a photographer whose photos are never good enough, and a mother who loves her children but gets oh-so-exhausted by caring for them.
I like to figure out the best way to make things… the most efficient, with the most lasting finish, and the best fit or taste. Sometimes things don’t go as planned, and I say ‘grr’. =) SayGrrSewing is my ramblings about the most recent make, usually a sewn item, and the surprises and frustrations that occurred while creating it.”
Thank you for including me!
Ajaire from Call Ajaire:
Hi, I’m Ajaire from Call Ajaire and I’m excited to participate in this challenge, but first a brief introduction. I’ve always loved making. At an early age I started cross stitching and sewing and I taught myself to knit and crochet during college. When our now three year old daughter Bean was born I was filled with all sorts of inspiration, so I find ways to manage my crafty time and treasure those moments. Sewing competitions are one way I love to be involved in this community. Whether it’s competing, joining a sew-along, or simply cheering from the sidelines, I enjoy and am inspired by the spirit of the game. The best part is that there’s really never a loser since whatever we made is still something WE MADE and isn’t that the whole point? This challenge is wide open so I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Well, how’s that for a line up of ladies sewing with knit fabric? We can hardly wait for Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition to begin! Fortunately, it’s only a week longer. This week is jam packed with introductions and one more round up for you! Have you enjoyed the other round ups we made for you? (Red, White &/Or Blue, Linen, and Geometric) Were you inspired? Have you already started sewing along? We have! There are going to be fantastic prizes, we can’t wait to reveal our sponsors later this week too! Whatever you sew…
Make it beautiful!
