About Me

My mom taught me to sew as a child, but I didn't become seriously interested until after college. In 2006, I received  my beautiful vintage Singer from a woman through Freecycle.org and later a bag of vintage patterns from another woman. From that, my love of sewing has grown. I started off making mostly vintage garments, but now I also use modern patterns and sometimes draft my own. Sewing has become my favorite hobby and a real passion.

On other notes, I grew up in Oregon, went to college and lived in New Orleans for 10 years and have recently moved to Chicago. I use my love for hunting "loot" at estate sales to gradually explore my new, giant city. Travelling is also something I enjoy, whenever I have any money.

I appreciate all comments and feedback! If you would like to contact me directly, my email is mollysewsblog [at] gmail [dot] com.
