About Me

meandBean

I’m Janice. I live in New York City, embraced vintage fashion and style with a Gothic twist and consecutively learned how to sew a few years ago. My favorite sewing time period is the 1940s, followed by the 1950s. My favorite sewing pattern company is DuBarry. I’ve since learned to sew with knits.

When I’m not sewing I work as an app developer, split my time between New York and Montreal, play video games, make lamps, read and am slowly decorating my Tiny Victorian Manor.

I have a Hello Kitty Janome Machine, a Singer 201-2 from the 40s bolted to the table that I learned how to sew on, a Singer 221-1 Featherweight and a Brother 1034D serger. The Featherweight is my primary machine, used for basting and straight stitching. The Hello Kitty Machine I use for the invisible zipper foot and the Brother 1034D primarily for serging.
