Woo hoo! I am so very excited to introduce you all to the brand new 2014 Sewing Rabbit Team!
I want to start off by saying thank you to all who applied. I tried to respond to as many as I could, the response was simply overwhelming. I am truly honored by your love and support, and that so many would want to work together. I am always amazed by just how much goodness there is out there, you guys are all so incredibly talented! THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.
It was important to me to have a well rounded team, with people skilled in all different niches. And after going through all of the applications, I believe we have found it. A truly incredible group of women with passions for children’s clothing, fashion and couture, quilting, women’s, home decor, boys and more. I am so very excited to introduce you to them!!!
Please join me in welcoming the new 2014 Sewing Rabbit Team…
Hello, I ‘m Alexia and I blog over at Lexi Made.
I am a self taught photographer of about 4 years now. My passion for photography was discovered after bringing my first child into this world. Like all moms I quickly became obsessed with photographing every moment of my son’s life. That obsession quickly grew into a little photography business.
After having twin daughters and having to relocate our family from California to Utah I was left feeling a little alone and lost since I no longer had my business and family surrounding me. With my hobby/job feeling like it was quickly disappearing I picked up sewing after seeing so many cute little things being made on Pinterest. I started following many many blogs and started teaching myself to sew from all the amazing tutorials out there. If you ask my husband he will tell you I became OBSESSED with learning how to sew! That was about 1 year ago and I am still obsessed with sewing! Since then I competed in the sewing competition Project Run and Play and had an absolute blast! Definitely my best sewing experience to date. I hope to add many more amazing sewing experiences this next year being on the Sewing Rabbit team! I am so excited!

Hello, Bernadette here. I blog over at daisies and dresses, but I won’t be offended if you don’t know who I am. We can get to know each other together. I’m very excited to be here with this fantastic group of bloggers.
I have been crafting since I could hold a pair of scissors. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been experimenting with all types of media from glue sticks, pipe cleaners and paper to resin, precious metal clay, and, finally, to delicious fabric. I think I finally found my home.
I started sewing when I received sewing lessons for my thirteenth birthday. I didn’t care for it then so I put up my machine and didn’t really pull it out again until I had my daughter. I really loved all of the fun fashion out there for little girls but I didn’t love the price so I started experimenting with my machine and scraps. I loved the idea of being to create something useful and my love of sewing clothing was born.

Hi – I’m Justine, mother, designer, writer and creator of the Sew Country Chick sewing and handmade living blog.
Most days you will find me working on some type of sewing project or crafty endeavor in the dining room of my 100 year old farmhouse. I create a variety of sewing projects. For myself, my eighteen, eleven, and four year old daughters, the theater where I work part time as a costume designer, and occasionally private clients. Our family moved from a very busy, urban Los Angeles to the country so we could homeschool, garden organically, raise chickens , and making my own wardrobe is an extension of those values. However, just because I’m a country girl now doesn’t mean I have to stop being a fashionista.
I am very excited to be contributing the The Sewing Rabbitt 2014 team.

I consider myself lucky that my mother and grandmother taught me how to sew when I still running around in my Strawberry Shortcake pajamas. My youthful fling with sewing has now blossomed into a Shakespearean romance. My passion for all things eco-friendly and sustainable naturally overflowed into my sewing and thus, EcoArmoire was born. With EcoArmoire, I strive to create a unique, affordable and versatile line of sewn goods to accommodate those who take pride in how their apparel and accessories are produced.
When not stitching away, I can be found: refinishing mid-century end tables I picked up off the side of the road, trying to accompany myself on piano while impersonating Ella Fitzgerald, planning schematics for an organic veggie garden, and spending lots of time with friends and family (aka guinea pigs for new products). I am girls-fainting-as-Beatles-play-Shea-stadium ecstatic to start on this sewing/blogging journey with the rest of the Sewing Rabbit Team of awesomesauceness!

My name is Nicole and I create and blog over at Modern Handcraft.
I currently live in Chicago with my husband Jerome and my awesome 2 year old son Grey (who is a frequent star of my instagram feed). Blogging for me has been a great way of keeping an online journal of my little projects and I now love to share tutorials and sewing tricks. When I am not sewing and playing with my son, I work as a flight attendant a few days out of the week. This job actually led me to learn crafts that were easy to travel with – crocheting, embroidery & english paper piecing. So you will see several of my projects that are great to take with you on the go!
So excited to be a part of the 2014 Sewing Rabbit Team and I hope to learn some great new skills from these other talented ladies!

Hello friends! I’m RaeAnna of Sewing Mama RaeAnna.
I have a similar story to many sewing bloggers – I began when my first child was born! Technically, my grandma was the first to teach me to sew and I made a quilt, knit t-shirt, doll clothes, and a smocked Bible cover as a young girl! I didn’t rekindle that love for crafting until Christian was born in 2009! Since then, I left my full time music teaching job to stay home with my son and the addition of my little girl, Eva Mae (2011)!
When the idea struck to start a blog with my sewing adventures, Me Sew Crazy was one of the first blogs I began to follow! To use one of Jess’ phrases, I was totally “geeked out” when asked to be a part of the 2014 team! I consider myself so blessed to have met many talented crafters through the internet (and in person!) and love expanding my list of skills and techniques in sewing and design!
When I’m not sewing or blogging I am spending time with my family and making music in Music City (Nashville area!)! I have a private piano studio and teach preschool music twice a week to 2-5 year olds!

Hi, I’m Tara and I blog over at Girl Like the Sea.
Just like so many others, sewing love caught me when I was pregnant with my oldest child. Garment sewing didn’t come into play until my second child was born, but as soon as it did I discovered it to be a a very satisfying way to work out the need to create. Modern, quirky, nerdy, whimsical, striped, and sometimes irreverent are all things I would attribute to my personal sewing style.
Pre-children I trained at Paul Mitchell The School to learn hair design. These days, I sneak sewing time in while working as a stay at home mom to three cute and very rambunctious kids currently under the age of 5.
