Getting to Know our New Team

Audrey from Skirt Fixation:

How Long Have you been Sewing?

Since I was 16!!

What is your Favorite Thing to Sew?

Clothes for me…(don’t tell my kids!)  But I adore making fall clothes, maybe because we’re going into fall?  But it’s my Season, so I’m currently up for all the french terry sweatshirts, sweaters, and canvas and denim skirts. 

Other Hobbies Beside Sewing?

Somehow I’ve become a crazy plant lady, I guess because I don’t have enough kids and animals to look after already.  But whether it’s gardening outside, or houseplants inside, I really enjoy plants.

How Long have you Followed Project Run & Play?

Since Season 8!!

Who Inspires You?

Everyone who sews along with PR&P.  And all the past designers.  And my kids as they’re finding their own unique fashion styles.  And my grandma…one of the classiest ladies.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?  Chocolate?  Followed closely by blueberry cheesecake.  Now I’m hungry!

Jenny from Made of Starlight:

How Long Have you been Sewing?

My grandma taught me to sew at 5-years-old. Both my grandmothers were meticulous seamstresses, and every visit was accompanied by at least one sewing project! My mom made all of our costumes growing up, for Halloween and for theatre productions, and always let me use her machines to practice, despite me not knowing how to thread them, and ruining the tension on more than one occasion. I started by making doll clothes as a kid, then graduated to costumes by high school. Once my daughter was born, I started sewing more often than a few times a year, and discovered the online sewing community! Its been 8 years, and I love everything I've learned here πŸ˜„

What is your Favorite Thing to Sew?

Themed collections! I started designing them for paper dolls at age 8, and never stopped

Other Hobbies Beside Sewing?

I teach Showchoir and musical theatre at various production companies and homeschool groups in my community. I homeschool my kids, and I'm also an avid reader! 

How Long have you Followed Project Run & Play?

Since season 4! Way back when I only had a little boy to sew for, and no idea about all the cute boy patterns out there in the indie sewing community

Who Inspires You?

I find most of my sewing inspiration on Instagram! I follow tons of kids clothing retailers and fashion houses, and I always have my phone out to take pictures if I see something cute while I'm out!

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?

That's a tough call, because I LOVE ice cream πŸ˜„ Usually I go with vanilla ice cream with mix-ins...like garam crackers, chocolate chips, and marshmallow fluff, or cheesecake and raspberries, or cake mix, hot fudge, and sprinkles, or oreos and caramel...now I want ice cream!

Lindsay from PA Country Crafts:

How Long Have you been Sewing?

After a particularly tough semester of college I went to the campus bookstore and sold back all of my textbooks. With my pitiful reimbursement I went straight to Walmart and bought the only sewing machine that I could afford. That summer I taught myself to quilt as recuperation. Sewing is definitely a stress reliever for me and when I started having daughters I began sewing for them as well.

What is your Favorite Thing to Sew? 

I definitely prefer sewing with woven fabrics over knits. I love when my girls let me sew coordinating outfits for them but I think those days have passed.

Other Hobbies Beside Sewing?

I also have a craft vendor space in a train station turned antique mall. I love creating upcycled home decor! I also weave baskets, paint, garden, and teach craft classes.

How Long have you Followed Project Run & Play?

I have followed Project Run and Play from the very beginning! I was so excited when I got the chance to compete in Season 13!

Who Inspires You?

My daughters inspire my sewing. I love taking on the challenge of their wild requests and creating special items made to fit their unique bodies and personalities!

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?

A favorite ice cream brand in Pennsylvania is Turkey Hill and they have a flavor called Double Dunker which combines mocha and cookies. Yummmmm…


Whitney
from Sew Whit Designs:

How Long Have you been Sewing?

I started sewing when I was about 7 or 8. My grandma taught me to sew along as she made Barbie clothes for me. 

What is your Favorite Thing to Sew?
 
I love making my kids Halloween costumes! Swimming suits & Leotards are also my jam.

Other Hobbies Beside Sewing?

I'm an occasional substitute teacher and I also volunteer weekly at our Newborn ICU.

How Long have you Followed Project Run & Play?

I stumbled upon Project Run and Play during Season 23. I was inspired and started sewing along. Audrey invited me to participate as a designer on Season 25. 

Who Inspires You?

My grandmother taught me to sew! I want to be her when I grow up! She could make ANYTHING! also my kids who think I can make anything they can dream of. 

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?

Cookies & Creme, although I'd actually. prefer shaved ice to ice cream. Pina Colada or Tigers Blood.
