Back to School Blog Tour ~ Day Five
Laurie Roberts is a Southerner living in the rural Green Mountains of Vermont. It was living in a small town that encouraged her to rediscover sewing after a 20-year break. She's married to a man that indulges her love of rich textiles and sewing by helping support her small custom dress business. She has 5 children between his, hers and ours and has no shortage of people asking for special custom stuff but really loves to stretch her creativity by indulging the youngest 2 with their specific demands for cosplay inspired and upcycled costuming. She started a challenge at the beginning of the year, which led to a blog chronicling that sewing journey. You can see more of her amazing dragon Gabriella's Coat here.
