Sewing is a great hobby. I would encourage anyone to start. It’s never too late, and now, with Covid, I spend more time than ever sewing.
Rhonda Grallnick, R.N. resides in Landsdale, PA. Although she tried sewing as a child , she truly connected with her sewing machine about 15 years ago. Her daughter, who was 10 at the time, wanted her mom to make her a dress. Rhonda has been sewing ever since.
Rhonda sews for herself, as well as for her family and friends. “I sew for pleasure and relaxation it brings to me. It brings out my creative juices!” She does a lot of charity sewing as a member of the Philadelphia Sewing Guild, a chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG). Rhonda and her sister members quilt for the Veterans Nursing Home and for cancer patients at Fox Chase Hospital. In addition, Rhonda enjoys entering sewing challenges (contests) for her guild chapter and has won prizes for her entries.
Rhonda’s work is a mix of garments, some quilting and machine embroidery. She’s admittedly drawn to color and mixed textures, and likes to experiment with threads of all types, exploring the various stitches made possible by her sewing and serging machines.
Among Rhonda’s favorite designers are Koos Van Den Akker and pattern designers Marcy Tilton, Sandra Betzina, Julio Cesar and Pamela Leggett as well as Peggy Sagers from Silhouette Patterns.
Rhonda is currently exhibiting jackets, a fantasy Valentine's Day apron with mask and a heart candy pillow in the Seamless Gallery.
