Getting to Know the Team Interview - Featuring Brandi Lowery
In the Spotlight - Brandi Lowery
We wanted to help you all get to know the Aurora Design Fabrics team a little better, so we decided to do a monthly team spotlight, featuring a new team member each month! We have come up with some personal questions to help you get to know each of us. Let's start with Brandi's responses:
Name and what you do here at Aurora Designs
Brandi Lowery, and I am the owner and general leader of the pack.
How old were you when you learned to sew and who taught you?
I think I was about 5 or 6 when my Grandmother taught me with some cut and sew stuffed animals.
What is your favorite and least favorite part of sewing?
I think my favorite part is actually cutting, there is something therapeutic almost about it and my least favorite part is hemming, so I put bands on everything I can!
What has been your favorite thing you have ever made?
Probably my son's pony only because of how much he loves it!
If you could get any crafting item what is at the very top of your list right now?
Coverstitch and then a vinyl cutter.
Current favorite pattern or pattern designer?
Patterns for Pirates Cocoon Cardi or the Jessi Hoodie!
Pizza and Lasagna. I love me some cheesy carbs!
Currently playing on pandora?
Classic Rock Love songs. I could listen to REO Speedwagon all day!
What do you like to do with your spare time (other than sew!)?
Is that a thing? I don't have spare time, but if I did, I like camping and going out driving back roads. My son calls it going on adventures.
What did you want to be when you grow up?
When I was a little girl, I was positive I was going to grow up to become a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. In case you were wondering, it didn't happen!
Last but not least… What advice would you give someone starting out?
Get a serger and a walking foot as fast as possible, they really do make that big of a difference! Join all the sew-a-longs, ask all the questions, and don't give up!!
That's All for Now!
And that's all, folks! There is much more to be learned about the amazing Brandi, but we are going to keep it short and sweet. She is a mommy of six and owner of an awesome fabric business. Shall we call her Wonder Woman?!
