MD Sewist Spotlight: Angie Reat

Every other week, we profile one of our customers to find out a little bit about their sewing life. This week the MD Sewist Spotlight is on Angie Reat.

How long have you been sewing? 

My husband bought me a sewing machine for my birthday 2 years ago and I’ve been obsessed with sewing projects ever since.


Tell us about a favorite recent sewing project.

I have been making many things out of Pendleton scraps that I buy at the mill store. I started with pillows and am currently making little zip pouches, iPad covers and various little things out of them. I also recently purchased a book called “we make dolls” because I thought it would be fun to make little funky dolls for my three year old daughter. I am loving how cute they are and am building a little confidence to make up a design myself, but haven’t started that yet.

What is your favorite sewing tip/tool?

I just learned how to use the ruffler foot and binding foot on the Bernina, which is awesome!

Where do you sew?

I sometimes sew at home on the dining table. When I need to get out of the house ( and use a fancier machine than I have) I go to Modern Domestic.

 What sewing project(s) do you plan to tackle next?
Still working on dolls, making various presents for family for the holidays (personalized napkins, aprons, trying to find doll accessory patterns for the groovy doll & piecing Pendleton scraps for little zip bags and pillows.)
