The other day Oona posted about how the praise-fest of Oonapalooza was giving her some twinges of guilt that compliments for her meant less compliments for other. But fear not! There is more than enough love to go around for everyone who is part of this awesome community. My hope is that we’ll continue celebrating the talents and skills of many different sewists, through rounds up, interviews like these, guest posts (Please lemme know ANYTIME you want to write something!) theme challenges and so on.
Jennifer runs the Workroom Social sewing studio in Brooklyn, and man oh man I wish I could go take a class there! After google chatting with Jennifer recently, I can promise that she is just as friendly, funny and sweet as she seems online. Read her post on the joys of the sewing community, and I’m sure you’ll agree! I’ve been envying her floral Kate and Laney Tap shorts since she posted about them – but I’m still waiting to see her Fat Quarter Challenge from Oona final project revealed!
(Here they are together at jennifer’s Sewing Swap Meet & Party this spring!)

Warm, kind, and fun.
