About Triple B

I am a teacher, doctoral student, foodie, and newbie to the sewing scene.

Enjoying the good life at Doukenie Winery in Virginia.

I spend ginormous amounts of time thinking, reading, and writing about secondary writing instruction and technology for my classes and my teaching. This blog is an attempt to give myself a bit of a break from all things grad school. Bolts, Bobbins, and Blunders is a blog dedicated to my adventures in sewing (and knitting and crocheting- I seem to be trying everything!). While I learned to embroider as a little girl and my mom was once an avid seamstress, I didn’t touch a sewing machine until October 2012 when frustrations over botched tailoring led me to purchase a Janome 2212 at my local fabric store. My first major project was a holiday pillow cover and as soon as I stuffed the pillow form into the competed cover, I knew I was hooked on sewing.

As I try to learn how to sew with my new machine, the many blogs out there by sewing enthusiasts have been incredibly helpful, so I decided to start my own. I hope that by sharing my blunders I will help others like me who are trying to figure this all out for the first time. As a teacher, I know that we learn best by sharing our knowledge (even if it is limited) and engaging with others. This is my attempt to learn and join the online sewing conversation.

  1. I would love to nominate you for the Liebster Award! If you would kindly just confirm that you have 200 subscribers or less, that would be perfect! I will be posting on my blog my nominations within the next 2-3 days. I look forward to hearing from you! “Triple B” keeps making me think of “Bumblebee” and now I am off to watch Transformers. So, thank you for that! Haha.
