Meet Laura Bendash author, pattern maker, and shop owner. I met Laura a couple of years ago and was drawn in by her sweet smile and amazing sense of style. I’m going to share with you an excerpt from her book due out 2014.
Laura has been working with sewing machines on and off since she was 9. However, her patience didn’t show up until her 30’s when a simple jacket pattern and broken sewing machine turned a bit of dabbling into an outright obsession. She has a bachelor’s degree in photography and has always had a passion for the arts. In 2009 Laura started her blog, Charm Stitch
where she posts tutorials, pattern reviews and essays on other sewing mishaps. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two young daughters and she finds inspiration in a houseful of controlled chaos and discarded tiaras. She is a big believer that sewing from your stash is over-rated.
