FAQ


Gotta question? Maybe I have an answer! If not, feel free to contact me!

What Hair Color Do You Use?

I use Arctic Fox in Purple Rain. It’s seriously the best stuff ever. It’s vegan, long lasting, TONS of awesome, vibrant colors, they donate 15% to animal funds, and best part? It smells like grapes! Plus, use this link to save $2 off your initial order! Who loves ya, baby? (Pssst… It’s me!)

WHY PURPLE?

Uhh, ’cause I like it? It’s pretty? Easy to maintain? How ’bout some psychology for ya: 

“Purple is associated with royalty. It can be used to communicate creativity, imagination, authority, sophistication, power, wealth, prosperity, mystery, wisdom, and respect.”

Sure. That sounds about right.

What sewing machine do you recommend?

Ooh, that’s a tough one. There are so many amazing machines out there. Honestly, I would say to give thought to what you want to accomplish. Do you want to quilt? Definitely seek out ones with free motion abilities and walking foot. Applique? You’re totally gonna want a zig zag and maybe some decorative stitches. Apparel? A free arm is useful for those tight spaces. 

And always, always get the best machine your budget can afford. Your garments and quilts will thank you in even stitches, less malfunction, and beautiful pieces!

As for my personal use? I have a Juki 2010q. Changed. My. Life. I love it so much, and don’t miss any of that fancy stuff. Check out my full review here. 

How long have you been sewing?

Well, I’ve been sewing off and on since I was about 5 or 6, and then really got heavily into it about 10 years ago. I’ve sewn bags, apparel, quilts, accessories, and loved it so much I even created a business from it: Spry Sprout! I’m constantly learning new techniques and am thrilled to see what others create. 

Where can I find you?

Currently, I’m out of Washington, D.C. raising my littles, my chickens and bees, but you can find me all over the internet! Follow me on Instagram, pin with me on Pinterest, let’s chat over on Facebook, or just send me a good ol’ e-mail. Plus, I LOVE snail mail! I’ll even send you a postcard if you fill out this form
