From Beth: Dawn Lewis, the UK lass in US, has been wowing us with her sewing on a continual basis since we noticed her fabric barn in… 2007?! (Then she even created a tutorial for it.) We’re excited that she joins us today to share her Travel Sewing Case Tutorial, coming up next…

From Dawn: I’m an English woman, married to an American, raising my son and daughter in a foreign land: Southern California. Still, the natives have been friendly. It was my husband’s grandmother that told me that she wanted to buy me a sewing machine. Prior to that I had only used a sewing machine for about 10 minutes in school – and it had not gone well – so I bought the cheapest machine that I could find. Five years later and that cheap machine is still going strong, despite having a self-taught novice at the pedal who has been dragging it out on a regular basis ever since.

I share the things that I make on my blog, UK lass in US, as none of my family or friends sew and they would soon get bored of my talking about sewing all the time.
