Hi there! Wanted to draw your attention to a lovely young lady who recently won in the Young Stitchers category of the Bernina Fashion Show! Meet Miss Kristin Houghtaling shown in her winning entry…a gorgeous blue dupioni silk dress and matching Interchangeable1 Bag!! Way to go, Kristin! Love the bag’s embroidery, and do I note a touch of bling there??! Love that too!
She tells me that she first made the dress, then thought..hmmm….needs a bag! Fortunately Kristin is well versed in bagmaking, and loves the easy Interchangeable! She confides that even though she has so many bags (CAN WE RELATE TO THIS!! ha!) she “loves making all the cute new patterns!”
Be aware that this darling seamstress is the daughter of Ann Arbor Sewing and Quilting Center’s owners, Doni & Kris!
Kristen says she fell in love with sewing through kids classes and sewing camps at the store…beginning with small sewing projects such as American Girl Doll pillow cases.
Again, many thanks for choosing one of my Bag Patterns, and making it so darn beautiful! Keep sewing Kristin, and please keep sharing your Ellen Medlock Studio designs with us so we can “show ‘em off!”
Congrats to a very talented Kristen Houghtaling!
