Sara Lawson lives in Chicago, Illinois and is mom to two young children, William and Violet. Sewing is a passion that runs in Sara’s family. She grew up seeing her grandmother, mother and aunts sewing and learned the basics from her mother when she was in 3rd grade. The first thing Sara made was a dress which she proudly wore to school.
Fast forward to 2010. Sara started her sewing blog, Sew Sweetness, named after one of her favorite Jimmy Eat World songs. ”It just sounded appropriate with the word ‘sew’ in front of it.” She started the blog not only because the online sewing community inspired her to share her creations, but because she was passionate about sewing.
Since 2010, Sara has garnered a great list of accomplishments; she has written more than 40 bag patterns, she has had a variety of items showcased at various Quilt Market booths, and her work has been featured in both national and international sewing magazines. Her first book, Big City Books, was published in November of 2013, and she’s currently working on her second book. Jungle Ave is Sara’s debut fabric collection.
