Meet the Designers: Rachael from Imagine Gnats
I'm Rachael Gander... all-around crafty lady, fabric enthusiast, blogger, and designer. I have an incredible (and perhaps, at times, compulsive) desire to express myself.
I first learned to sew alongside my mom, but lost interest in the craft until my early twenties when i got my own machine. Over those last fifteen (plus) years, I've experimented with modern quilting, accessories and garment sewing, pattern design, hand-printed fabric, and textile design.
imagine gnats started as a little etsy shop, selling small sewn items to help support my family and also to give me a creative outlet in a corporate world. It's come a long way in just five years... from a hobby to a full-time job. My love of sewing and design has grown as well, and now my own sewing patterns help and inspire others to create.
I aim to inspire others to create, to dream, and to never stop imagining the possibilities that exist within each of us, and I'm so excited to have this opportunity to be a part of Project Run and Play!! I can't wait to see what the other amazing competitors stitch up and to share my inspiration and creations with you!
