This week we’ve been busy researching a story for our upcoming June/July ’13 issue. We’re writing a 16 page expose on extreme sewists. Here’s an excerpt from this thrilling article:
“You wouldn’t believe how many needles I break,” Shauna explained, “sometimes a wave catches you wrong and you just know that needle is a goner.” Extreme sewist, Shauna Flowersly, competes in national jet ski competitions. Her edge over the other jet ski enthusiasts is her passion for sewing. She has been known to sew while out on the water. Her contribution to the talent portion of the competition involves serging a sheath dress while jumping waves and circling buoys.
The article includes other extreme sewists known for stitching while mountain biking, bungee jumping and paragliding. Watch for it to hit newsstands in mid-May.
How about you? What’s the most extreme setting you’ve ever sewed in?
We can’t wait to hear your responses!
