Melissa MoraMelissa Mora blogs at Melly Sews, where she gets to combine her love of sewing, teaching and writing in one creative place. She sews in the intersection of ruffles and race cars, that sweet spot between her own girly-girl impulses and design for her two rough and tumble boys. Melissa spent 12 years in the classroom as an award-winning high school theater teacher before leaving recently 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. 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.
