Hi! I’m Stephanie Troemel from Sarcastic Sewist.
I am a regular pattern tester, fabric hoarder, and general sewing enthusiast in my downtime. My mission in life is to encourage other sewists to learn, grow, and love their creations, as well as themselves.
I don’t think my grandma thought teaching me to sew when I was about 6 would lead to all the craziness in my world today. While clothes are my passion, I also enjoy making quilts, wallets, and other accessories. I love the responses I receive on my blog of other sewists and crafters who are encouraged by seeing a fellow sewist, and a plus size one at that, sharing all the things! I discovered a new area to love in sewing when I started working for Rebecca Page in 2017. I have a new way to interact with other sewists and share my love and knowledge of sewing, plus all the behind the scenes action!
My blog is an excuse to continue filling my already-overflowing closet with fun, custom fit, me-made clothes. It gives me the opportunity to show some of the amazing patterns I get to test, as well as repeat offenders I make on a regular basis. And to share my own takes on all kinds of sewing fun!
