Sewing blogger and designer Rochelle New of Lucky Lucille is a returning Super Online Sewing Match judge! She writes, “Hello, my name is Rochelle and I’m a sewing nerd/aspiring designer with a supreme love for quilt industry textiles, bygone eras, and a dog named Lucille. I like mixed prints, red lipstick and using my cats as photo props. I’d like to think I make magic with fabric, but really I just make messes.”

Rochelle just announced a fun, ongoing, vintage-inspired sewing challenge based on a 1950s capsule wardrobe. She also has her first PDF sewing pattern coming out next month for a retro/pin-up-inspired headband, so be on the lookout for release info at Lucky Lucille.

During the first Super Online Sewing Match Rochelle always had thoughtful, insightful things to say about the entries that made us look at the challengers in a new light. She’s fully in tune with how a garment can reflect the personality and character of the maker and appreciates when it is done well. It’s clearly a skill she has mastered so we’re thrilled she’s back to help judge this contest.
