Katy & Laney

Welcome to our blog, we are Katy & Laney!

We met over boxed wine and vegan baked goods at the Crafty Foxes Sewing Club hosted by the lovely Sarah of Grey’s Fabric and Notions. But it was our brief dalliance as professional stitchers for a local designer that gave birth to our partnership. As it turns out nothing brings two girls together like infiltrating the Boston Fashion Week. After many late nights spent conquering an exclusively silk chiffon collection, we have emerged with a rather inflated confidence in our ability to sew anything.

In this blog we plan to chronicle our sewing adventures that follow. The good, the bad, and the crafty.  After years of sewing solo, our recent discovery of a fabulous group of Bostonians with which to share our love of all things sewing has been an incredible source of inspiration. We hope that this blog will connect us to sewists in Boston and beyond.

What could go wrong? It’s not silk chiffon.
