Today we are talking to Holli Coats, pattern designer and sewing blogger over at Hello Holli. (Isn’t that ^^^^ the cutest pic ever?) She’s going to be talking to us about her first pattern, The Blue Ridge Dress, how she set goals for herself when she first started,
and how she started sewing.

  • how she’s teaching her kids to sew and knit.
  • how we procrastinate on housework.
  • what she’s currently sewing.
  • Inspiration for her pattern.
  • where her pattern names came (and will come)  from.
  • the pattern that got her started on pdf patterns.
  • her hubby’s homemade ice cream. Yum!
