Hi there, I’m Rachel!

Hello there! I’m Rachel from Sew RED-y, but you can call me RED! I was born and raised a New Orleans girl but now I currently reside in Tucson, Arizona. My partners in crime are my husband, 2 cats named Tasso and Boudin, and 2 chickens named Caroline and Chickie von Poopenstein. I am a supervisor by day but my real passion is sewing!

The love-for-sewing seed was planted when I was 10 years old during a week-long summer sewing camp. I was thrilled to make a cat fabric tote bag and pillow case! Then in high school, I busted out my mom’s old 1960’s sewing machine to make costumes for Halloween and anime conventions (yes, I was an otaku!). I didn’t get really into sewing until the summer of 2011, when my husband made a sewing table and bought a sewing machine for my birthday. I wanted to make curtains for the house and save money by trying to sew my own clothes. I was more interested in sewing clothes, really, so let’s say I now have really ugly curtains but garments I love!

I fell in love with the sewing blogger community in 2011 and started Sew RED-y in 2014. I absolutely love being a part of this community and am super stoked about being a part of the Cali & Co. team now!

Cheers!
