Meet Alexia

alexia

This is an overdue post to officially welcome Alexia to the studio! She joined us a few months ago to help with sewing pattern testing, trunk show support, sample sewing and in general to help keep this place a happy, humming business! You may have also, of course, seen her modeling on my Roundabout Dress pattern cover. And if you've frequented either the City Quilter or Textile Fabrics in recent years she may have just cut your fabric or offered you expert sewing advice! She is so talented, clever, and helpful and I couldn't be happier to have her working with us. There are few people in life who will geek out over certain sewing techniques with you or who can quote all the best lines from Elf, not to mention interject those lines into everyday work situations so effortlessly. I know. I am so lucky.

And just as with Allie, beauty was not a requirement. However being thrown into photo shoots because of said beauty just becomes a way of life when working with me!

Welcome Alexia!
xoxo, Anna
