  12. I thoroughly enjoy being a Sewing Portfolio Ambassador. It’s sew fun to receive a bundle of fabric no one else has and having full creative control is like icing on the cake.

    My active Sewing Portfolio makes it much easier to share exams of my skills with potential business associates.

  13. I was over the moon when I got picked. I did not think a little Belgian nobody would make the selection, because I don’t think my sewing or photography are nor exceptional. But I took a shot. I made the few albums I had public, made an extra one with every single MMF make I could find a picture. That means the very first dress I made for my little girl, some trinkets and my “greatest achievement” the first communion dress for my little girl. I was very happy when the fabric arrived.
    I did not use fancy patterns (I did not know which to pick!), just went with free ones. I love how it turned out. And even had an extra piece of fabric that is still waiting to be turned into a pretty dress.

  14. The Sewing Portfolios community is awesome, it’s a great way to keep track of your makes and it can open up so many doors to do collaborations with designers and fabric manufacturers. I was over the moon when I was chosen to be an ambassador and the fabric I received was so wonderful.

  15. Being a Sewing Portfolio Ambassador is a great opportunity to have your sewing talent seen. I love the fact that it’s easy to share your portfolio with pattern designers and fabric manufacturers. I’ve had wonderful opportunities because of my sewing portfolio.
