Today I’m winging my way over to San Francisco, CA to visit with the lovely and talented Natalie Zee Drieu of the blog Coquette. Natalie is such an interesting member of the craft community, I’m not quite sure where to start describing her! I first met Natalie several years ago, when she was the Editor in Chief of CRAFT. She served at that post for quite some time, making CRAFT into one of the strongest DIY online magazine out there. She’s since moved on, and now writes on her own blog, Coquette, where she merges her interests in fashion and technology, with a bit of crafting thrown into the mix, too — Coquette has been rated one of the top 50 fashion blogs in the world, how cool is that? Natalie has also authored several books on technology, you know, no big deal. Girl can do everything. So hop on over to Coquette to see what Natalie has to say about Sewing in a Straight Line from the perspective of a fashionista tech guru crafting maven!
Thanks for being part of my blog tour, Natalie! xoxo
And now it’s giveaway time!! Today I have something a little different to offer. I’m going to start giving away some of the fabrics I used to make the actual samples in my book. In many cases I bought more fabric than necessary, so I thought why not share it with all you beautiful people? Today I am offering one yard of the fabric I used to make the zippered throw pillow shown here:
…along with an autographed copy of Sewing in a Straight Line and an 18-spool set of Coats Dual Duty Thread!
