Melissa Mora
Melly Sews; Pattern Anthology
Andrea Pannell, Melissa Mora, Kate Blocher, & Shauna Wightman work together on Pattern Anthology. Melissa Mora blogs at Melly Sews, where she gets to combine her love of sewing, teaching and writing in one creative place. Melissa spent 12 years in the classroom as an award-winning high school theatre teacher before leaving to become a full time blogger and the designer/owner of Blank Slate Patterns, focusing on PDF sewing patterns for modern boys, girls and women. Her customers love that her patterns strive to be a “blank slate” for their own creativity. She has over 30 years of sewing experience (she started young!) and loves to teach others the joys of sewing. A native Texan, Melissa lives in Austin with her husband and two boys.
