Meet the Designer: Bernadette from Duchess and Hare


Hi, I'm Bernadette, owner of Duchess & Hare.

So, a little about me.  First off, I'm not good at talking about myself.  I'm very bad at it in fact... I'll just tell you that I like to design, sew, and photograph the things I make.  I've been sewing since I was 12 which translates to more than 2/3 of my overall life because I've been alive for a while now.  I can remember cutting up socks to make dresses for my Barbies when I was little.  After that got boring (because there's only so many things a person can do with tube socks and scissors), I started using tissue paper and tape to make some pretty elaborate tutus for the My Little Ponies that shared a shelf with the Barbies.  Even before that started, I was drawing and making collages.  I've always been a crafter, probably as long I've been able to use scissors.

When I'm not crafting, I'm usually found playing video games or reading fantasy novels, or watching bad science fiction movies.  I really can't get enough of it.  I love to lose myself in the different worlds of the books and movies.  I am also a mother of 4.  My boys are 19, 17, and 15, and my daughter is 7.

Words really can't express to you how excited I am to be here.  I've been following Project Run and Play since the very first season and have dreamed of being a contestant since then.  Thank you all for voting me in this season and making my dream come true!

  1. Boys plus a girl. She is going to love that forever! I also love getting lost in a book. It's a great escape from reality as much as sitting down to a machine!
