About SewMichelle

   Self proclaimed "Tote Bag Queen", Michelle Dorsey has been teaching sewing and embroidery classes for nearly two decades. Her catalog consists of quick, easy "instant gratification" projects (as she likes to call them). These projects can be completed in a few hours without sacrificing a professional finish.

   She burst onto the pattern-making scene in 2007 with her debut pattern Screen It Up. From there she went on to create fan favorites such as The Mini Screen, Sassy and My Retreat Bag. Her love for embroidery has inspired her to create an ongoing collection of in-the-hoop projects with designs such as Rings and Things and The Ladybug Pincushion.

   It is Michelle's belief that sewing should be fun, not frustrating. So she aims to include comprehensive instructions that are clear and easy to follow in each of her patterns. Detailed images accompany all her instructions for the visual learners of the world.

   Michelle's passion for sewing and embroidery inspires her mission to make sewing fun and easy for everyone!
