My guest today is Mia Whittemore who is the winner of the Uppercase Magazine contest to find the next Windham fabric designer. Mia entered the contest thinking it would be a good experience but she didn’t imagine winning a prize that would land her artwork on fabrics. Mia and I talk about her background in art and how she is flexing her skills in the classroom as an art teacher. Mia hasn’t always thought of her art as a daily practice until she challenged herself to just get creative after her nine to five job. She says it was the thing that changed the way she felt about herself as an artist and eventually gave her the courage to enter the Uppercase Magazine and Windham Fabrics contest. I so enjoyed chatting with Mia and learning more about her process. I have also worked with her first fabric line, Flourish, and it is gorgeous. I am so excited to see what Mia has in her future.
Hi everyone and welcome to Modern Sewciety and our stop on the Back to School Blog Hop. I really tried to overthink this assignment but when it came down to what I wanted to do I thought about my kids. What is something I could make that would be used a lot and needed for that matter. I happen to be lucky enough to have two beautiful girls with a head full of beautiful hair. So hair bows seemed like the perfect project. Easy and useful.
I thought I would do something different with my weekly newsletter this week. I love sharing my newsletter picks each it is my sunshine to my subscribers. So welcome if you are new here and welcome if you are coming over from your weekly email.
This week has been full of wishy washy for me. I have this gut feeling that I am going in the right direction but where I am going it is fuzzy. These are the things I know lately and get ready because they are random so hang with me.
