I started Gussy Sews a couple years ago after Zack and I were suddenly unemployed. We were living in Detroit at the time and were newlyweds, recent college grads… and unemployed. It was such a bummer time in our lives but we kept the faith and pushed through, spending all of our free time expanding on our talents and dreams.

Just before losing my job I had been given my first sewing machine. I sat at our kitchen table with 30 library books {no joke} and with the help of YouTube slowly taught myself how to sew. It seemed natural to make zipped pouches and tote bags, since HELLO! we are best friends. Then I thought, These babies need a signature look, so I made my very first ruffle and sewed it on. My style has changed a bit but the ruffle has been with me the whole time. After a few months of sewing and job-seeking Zack and I found work in Minneapolis, so we packed up our house and headed west. And that feisty fire — the dream to pursue Gussy Sews full time, grew a little taller. Finally, in May of 2010 I quit my day job for Gussy Sews — and ohhhh, the HAPPINESS!

Encouraging others to chase after their dreams + constantly learning about sewing/fabric/social networking are my passions. I’m so glad you’re here — and good luck to you on winning a Gussy! ;]
