Hello everybody! I'm Regina and I'm about to help you turn some fabric scraps into fun stuff, give you tips about accessories, and maybe give you a few good ideas about crafts. But first a few things about myself...
I'm from a little town called Folsom in New Jersey. Surrounded by pines and lakes, I grew up riding four-wheelers, camping with the Girl Scouts, and hanging out at the local video store to buy candy since we were too young to rent movies.
At 14, I started forming my unconventional appearance. Instead of spending my fall school clothes budget at the mall, I chose to shop at Goodwill because even at that age, I figured I'd get the most amount of clothing for my money. Plus, I found that the Goodwill has a crazy wide range of styles; why visit Boscovs, Deb, and Hot Topic when I can find classy, cute, and rocker clothes in one store?
After high school, I attended college at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. I lived in the city for 6 years, played bass guitar a few punk bands (don't judge, I like country, rap, metal, 1940's Andrews Sisters..basically any music that rocks/has a good beat), met many awesome people, and eventually earned a degree in fashion design.
I've been a seamstress for 10 years and have a strong background in graphic design. I thoroughly enjoy modifying clothing, making costumes (just wait for fall to roll around, I'll post some past costume designs), and turning broken/useless things into functioning pieces. I pride myself on being very DIY, but it never hurts to ask for help when needed.
That about wraps it up, stay tuned every Friday to see what I have to share! Stay funky everybody ;)
