Rachel started weaving as a hobby to help jump-start her creativity. It has led to a regular set of tutorial contributions, workshops, and her own experimentation with styles that she offers in flash sales through her Instagram shop. She taught at a Bing-sponsored event and has taught in more intimate settings, including two classes to elementary aged kids. She will be hosting at least one weaving workshop later this summer in her studio, and regularly contributes weaving and other DIY's to A Beautiful Mess blog. She is a regular contributor to magazines, blogs and on-line learning sites. Her e-course topics include art journaling, scrapbooking, sewing, and home styling, and she recently co-released a sewing basics course through A Beautiful Mess. She is a contributor to The Stir , a mom-oriented, lifestyle and fashion-based website that also includes craft roundups, original DIY's, etc. and has had articles in SEW, Artful Blogging, BUST and CRAFT, and Ladies' Home Journal. Her DIY's have been republished online at Curbly, Apartment Therapy, Bob Vila, Design*Sponge, Babble, CafeMom, Design for Mankind, etc. To date, her most popular weaving DIY's have been the aluminum chair makeover, woven rug, and three weaving tutorials for beginner's, all contributions to A Beautiful Mess.
