Thank you for clicking on the “About” button. My name is Samina, I’m always sewing, and have a penchant for sewing everything. Yes, that’s me hugging my sewing machine, photographed by Brian Campbell Photography .
I’m specially thrilled to take on this writing venture since there are many, many fantastic sewing blogs out there written by rock stars of the sewing world. I think that all bloggers share a trait where they have a perennial desire to share their thoughts, ideas and accomplishments with whoever wants to know. I’m one of them and thus, have jumped into the blogging fray. I hope you will be informed and entertained with my sewing adventures, and any sewing education I can provide.
Now, really about me: raised two daughters; worked for the American Sewing Guild’s National Headquarters for almost 12 years; studied pattern design in college, but gave it up as soon as commercial patterns were discovered; authored a sewing article for Threads in 2003, for Vogue Patterns about destination fabric shopping in Houston in 2011, made the cover of “Notions” a couple of times, an American Sewing Guild publication. In 2014 and 15, got two projects published in Stitch magazine.
Hope you enjoy my posts, and I hope to enjoy reading your comments.
