Good afternoon everyone!
My name is Ashley Briggs and I just joined the Sew News team as an Assistant Editor. I’m on day two and so far it has been awesome! Looking through all the issues I’m finding so many great ideas I’m not sure how I’m going to find the time to make them all…or the space to put them. Looks like everyone will be getting homemade Christmas gifts this year!
My Mom taught me how to sew at a pretty young age. I remember sitting on the couter watching her cut out pieces of material before I eventually graduated to being allowed to pin things for her. When she finally taught me to use her machine my feet couldn’t even reach the pedal! We had to stack it on a box for a year or so until I got a little taller. So that’s my sewing beginnings, what’s yours? Who taught you how to sew and what’s your earliest sewing memory?
