Winner of the Momiform MAKEover Series
Janome Artisan Lauren Dahl of Baste + Gather hosted the Momiform MAKEover Series in September where more than 30 mothers participated in making over their daily "momiforms" with handmade garments. For eight consecutive days, mothers submitted a variety of different outfits and in the end a winner was drawn from the contestants. Emily W. from Oregon was the lucky winner of a Skyline S5 sewing machine. She picked up her S5 at Montavilla Sewing & Vacuum Center in Portland.
"Sewing is my primary creative outlet and a hobby I have become quite passionate about since the birth of my daughter nearly 2 years ago. I turned back to my machine during her nap times after a long hiatus from sewing brought about from having poor-quality tools and some frustrating botched projects. Now, I enjoy the process of making her clothes almost as much as seeing her wear the finished products. I have set a goal to make the majority of her wardrobe.
I am thrilled about getting such a high quality machine. I am also ready to try making clothes for my partner and myself. One of the things I love most about sewing is that you never stop learning. The next big crafting leap that I plan to take is into the world of quilting." - Emily
