Becky Wareing Steele & Sara Guindon
Tell us about your crafty selves.
Becky: I am a compulsive crafter. I try to create something every day whether it be something for myself, a gift, or for my business (insert shameless promotion here...) I love to crochet, sew and mainly work with miniatures.
Sara: I'm an illustrator and I like to draw and paint people. I'm new to sewing, but I used to do a lot of felt applique, and I have some English paper peicing for on the go.
Tell us about the Laurels you've made.
Becky: This was my first time sewing with a pattern. Sara encouraged me to try the Laurel pattern from Colette and now I'm addicted.
Sara: I made three Laurel dresses. It was fun adding extra details like contrasting bias tape and applique collars.
How did each of you learn to sew?
Becky: I came from a long line of crafters. My grandfather taught arts and crafts at a prison in Philidelphia and, even though we never met, he's been a huge inspiration of mine.
Sara: A long time ago I used to hand sew applique bags. Then I started making small alterations on my home sewing machine. Now I want to learn how to follow patterns--I'm addicted to Colette Sewing Patterns.
What is your favorite animal?
Becky: I love all animals, but I live with two cats.
Sara: My boring answer is dogs. Visually I like giraffes because they have big eyes and long eyelashes.
Thanks Becky and Sara! Happy crafting!
