Introduction ~ Rachel

From Beth: Rachel made a darling Oliver + S dress for her daughter and wrote a great review for us too. Be sure to check out her ButtonsMagee blog and her beautiful photography via Flickr. Her daughter was thrilled with the dress and so are we!

From Rachel: Hi, I’m Rachel of ButtonsMagee. I currently live with my husband and two girls in Kansas City. My primary love is photography, but sewing takes a close second. Making things has been part of my life since I can remember, but I didn’t take sewing seriously until about six years ago when I needed to make cushion covers for my sofa. Since then I have taken up quilts, bags, smock, home decor items, and now clothing. I am truly a believer in creating something every day no matter how small.

Free Fabric Friday

Happy Friday!  Last night I was helping my 5 yo daughter use her Hello Kitty Janome and thought, “this is better than my sewing machine.”  I realized that maybe the fall off the kitchen table to the cement floor did a little more damage to my machine than I had originally thought!  Time to shop for a new model. We often get emails from people asking for sewing machine recommendations and there is usually a running thread in the photo pool discussion, so let’s talk sewing machines today.  (We’ve done this before, but it has been a very long...
