Sew Not Your Mom was born from a desire to read about more people like me on the internet:
- No kids
- Lots of pet hair
- Not ready to accept my “adult age”
- Not a perfect crafter
I am in my late-twenties, living in the far west suburbs of Chicago. Between my weird working hours and dislike of driving, I don’t get out much. That sounds terribly sad, but it isn’t. It’s allowed me to both focus and develop the friendships I have as well as stitch my little head off.
I tend to write somewhere between thesis paper and instant messenger convo.
I like to make. Right now I am on a huge embroidery kick. I should start to rein it in to begin my annual “knit scarves for charity” kick…. Huh.
