We’re introducing you to our esteemed Super Online Sewing Match judges over the next few days. It’s a spectacular line-up of talented and skilled sewists! First up is Michelle Morris, creator of the popular DIY and fashion blog, ThatBlackChic.com. Michelle’s site hosts DIY projects, reviews and tutorials, highlights from her sewing projects and photo shoots and– as her banner says– “a peep into her crazy life.”

Michelle was recently named winner of the first annual Rippin Ain’t Easy sewing competition by PrettyGirlsSew.com! Michelle captivated voters with her interpretation of each of the challenges. The finale was a spectacular ending to the competition and Michelle wowed everyone with her Black Tiered gown for the Red Carpet Challenge.

Michelle is currently hosting a blazer sew-along for all levels of sewists and contributes regularly to the sewing blog, The Monthly Stitch. She has plans involving work with Philadelphia Fashion Week this fall, perhaps in a designer capacity.

We chose Michelle because of her experience as a winning competitor in a sewing contest, her amazing skills, and her contagious enthusiasm for fashion and sewing!
