Hello! My name is Jess Abbott, the Sewing Rabbit, and I am the author behind the sewing blog Me Sew Crazy.
I have been hand sewing ever since I was a little girl, when my Mother instilled a love for cross-stitching in me. But I didn't really pick up the sewing machine until my eldest daughter was born. That was nearly 7 years ago, and I haven't put it down since. There were a lot of ups and downs, including many upside down set in sleeves and necklines that were too small, but they all helped me understand and develop my skills.
Blogging entered the picture about 2.5 years ago when my sister encouraged me to start sharing my sewing creations. I soon fell in love with the art of story-telling, and marrying these two passions has absolutely fulfilled my inner need to create.
Since then my husband and I created SewSet, an on-line sewing pattern and tutorial search engine. And I have also started the Girl's Night Out Blogger Get Together, a quarterly event that travels around the nation bringing sewing & craft enthusiasts together in an intimate setting to meet, laugh, and connect.
With three young kiddos running around things can definitely get crazy in our house, but luckily with a fully supportive and amazing husband - everything manages to stay knitted together.
I am honored to be here competing in Season One of Project Sewn!
