There are a lot of us working at Treadle. We call ourselves the Treadlettes, and we want you to know a little more about us! In the next couple months, we’ll be introducing all of the people who make Treadle so special and telling you more about ourselves.
To start our Get To Know Us series, I’m Elizabeth, your friendly neighborhood blogger! I’ve been working at Treadle since Summer 2011, and in 2012 I took over writing our store blog.
I’ve been sewing since I was in my teens, and I quickly discovered my One True Sewing Love: historic costume. I have been devoted to historic sewing for many years, and I love researching how to make my historic garments as accurate as possible. Of course I also love dressing up and attending historic events! Probably my favorite historic dress I've made is this 1770s handsewn orange silk taffeta robe a l'anglaise.
I like to sew modern garments, too. It’s so nice to be able to wear something you’ve made in your daily life! I also dabble in quilting and crafts. It’s good to spread your projects around a little.
I started teaching at Treadle in 2012. I started with just a hand sewing class and a hat making class, but I really loved teaching, so soon I added more and more classes, and now I teach all kinds of things! I’ve also been lucky enough to take over coordinating our class schedule.
Stay tuned for more bios, product recommendations, and favorite pattern picks from us, every Treadlette Tuesday!
