About

Hi, I’m Ginger*!  I like to make stuff!  I live in Astoria, Queens, New York with my husband (here known as Man Friend) and our snuggly pugs, Doug and Peggy.  I work in film & television, and I love pink geraniums, dachshunds, Girl Scout cookies, dotted Swiss, and accordions.  I overuse ellipses… you’ve been warned.

*My name isn’t really Ginger, but hey, it’s fun to pretend!

  1. Hi Ginger, thanks for your visit on my blog!
    I hope you are taking full advantage of your visit in Paris! You also have to visit “l’entrée des fourisseurs” 8 rue des francbourgeois in the 3rd district

    if you go to Montmartre, lot of fabrics are 50% less (SALES SALES SAAAAAAAAAAALES!!!)

  2. Hi Ginger,

    My name is Maddie and I just wanted to say how much I admire your blog. I am a technical designer living in Philadelphia (with no man friend) and love that you love sewing and knitting as much as me. Keep up the good work girl. I have bookmarked you site so I’ll be back.

    Sincerely Always,
    Maddie

  4. Hey there! I was trying to email you, but couldn’t find it. Anywho, yeah, I work in the low down and dirty business of reality, haha. Mostly just associate producer, research, notes, hotsheets, etc. Trying to get into post now. I don’t know many production folks in NY, mostly just LA. How about you?
    So glad to see another sewist that understands the rigors of production, i.e.-no time! Really enjoying your blog, too-love your style!!

  5. Hey Ginger, First of all you are adorable and so is your blog. I was hoping I could get a little advice. I know that you live in Astoria and was wondering what you think about it? We are moving to the city with our 2 year old and were looking mostly at Brooklyn, but noticed that Astoria is much more affordable. How do you think it compares?

    Also, I want to go fabric shopping with you once we get there!

    Hey Ginger, I just found your blog last week and wanted to tell you that it’s AWESOME. I am 28 and have, for some reason, become obsessed with sewing this last month. I am taking some lesssons next month in order to brush up my skills and learn some new ones. Anyways, just wanted to thank you for your inspiring work on this blog.
