I'm RaeAnna from Sewing Mama RaeAnna and I'm ecstatic to be a contestant this season! I've followed PR&P for years and it's hard to believe I am actually competing! I'm still waiting for someone to pinch me! I started my blog in 2011 when my daughter was born and I've been sewing since 2009. Like so many friends I've met in our virtual sewing circles, the bug hit me when I became a mommy and wanted to create clothes for my kids! I started off with Children's Corner patterns and still consider myself a person drawn to the classic Southern style in kids clothes. I love my embroidery machine and my Silhouette Cameo for embellishing outfits with embroidery or vinyl and you'll see that a lot in my looks!The past couple years I haven't been as active on my blog as when my kids were younger. Outside of sewing, I teach private piano lessons, Music with Mommie classes, and I homeschool my kiddos! I am amazed at the growth in the sewing community - especially online! It's great to see so many moms, grandmas, aunts, dads, etc. taking up the art of sewing and expressing creativity through making clothes and other handmade items! I would love to connect with you online! You can find me at www.sewingmamaraeanna.com, on FaceBook and Instagram @sewingmamaraeanna!
