Meet the Designers: Rachel from A Nest Full of Eggs
Hey there! I'm Rachel and I blog at nest full of eggs (the photo is a self portrait of me taken in my sewing room). I'm a stay-at-home mumma of three children: 2 boys (14 and 9 years old) and 1 girl (5 years old). I was born, raised, and currently live in the midwest, Minnesota to be exact, although I've lived 3.5 years of my life in France.
Despite the fact that my background is not sewing or design (I hold a Bachelors in engineering and minors in geology and French), sewing has become a super fun creative outlet for me. I learned how to sew/knit/crochet in 4th and 5th grade summer school. Since then everything has been self taught and I was only sewing a tiny bit here and there for many years, then I really got back into sewing after the birth of my daughter. I'm thrilled to be joining Project Run and Play Season 5, many thanks to Elizabeth and Liz for inviting me to compete!
