Learn more about Renee on her social media channels! 

She has been social sewing via her Miss Celie's Pants blog and for about 15  years and on Instagram for seven. Currently, she is  also a temp editor with Sewcialists. Some people might recognize her as an occasional model for Cashmerette Patterns. She has modeled the Holyoke maxi dress, Ipswich Swimsuit, and the Tobin Sweater.

A few months ago, Renee wrote about being Black and how it shaped the way she presented herself in the sewing community and why.  Here's a link to that blog entry.
