Hello I'm Lisa, I'm a stay at homeschooling mom to my two kiddos. I live in Northern California with my husband of 16 years. I learned how to sew 15 years ago when we bought our first home, sewing slip covers and home decor items. My sewing interests changed dramatically in 2010 when I had my daughter. Since then I have been obsessed with sewing children's clothing.
Hi! I’m Rachel and I’m excited to be joining the Pattern Revolution team. I am a native East Coast-er, having returned to the wilds of New Jersey with my husband and two (fun and exhausting) kids after 7 years in New York City. I’m a lifelong crafter and ran a handcrafted jewelry business for about 8 years. I fared miserably in middle school home ec, though, and was convinced for years that sewing was not for me. My parents bought me a sewing machine for my 31st birthday and the rest was history. I love knits, upcycling, and vintage buttons; dislikes include cleaning my sewing space and taping pdf patterns. Nowadays I sew mainly for my kids – a girl who loves bright colors and a boy who loves anything with a car on it – but I’ve been working on my own handmade wardrobe lately too.

I’m a wife and mother to three young children. My husband has been making my dreams come true since we got married. My mom taught me to sew when I was a child and confesses she was often mad at me because I would be sewing when she wanted her machine. When our youngest was 9 months old my husband bought me a sewing machine and that is when my sewing skills took off. I rarely sew fall and winter clothes for my kids because I spend all early fall sewing coordinating Halloween costumes for the whole family.
