About me

Attack of what?

Of the seam ripper!

The seam ripper is a devilish little object that is often used to unpick seams, but whose true purpose seems to be to cut the first unknowing finger or piece of fabric that dares to cross its way.

Also, I think it’s funny because for me “seam ripper” sounds like “grim reaper”, but it might only be because I’m French. People said it would be funnier if I explained the joke but I think they were just messing with me.

Anyway, that’s the name of this sewing and knitting (and even embroidery sometimes!) blog, where I share my many misfortunes on this long road paved with pins.

By the way, I’m Camille. I am 29, and after several years working in AI research in the US, I made a 180 and left academia to join the sewing pattern company Deer&Doe. Now I spend my life between Boston, Paris, and Toulouse. Thankfully I have my knitting projects to keep myself busy during flights!
