I Sunni, am Officially a Nerd

Dontcha think? It’s OK if you do, because I feel that being a nerd isn’t all so bad. I have serious hobbies. I have serious passions in life. So what if I’m way into sewing? At least I’m way into something rather than nothing at all.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you’re going to be at the American Sewing Expo, well so am I! I’ll be speaking about a few things here and there – I’m still working out the specifics. I’m pretty excited about it. Oh alright, I’m ecstatic!!! They needed a head shot of me and a bio and this is what I came up with for a head shot and below are some out takes. I thought you might think that was rather fun.

Crazy eyes! Give me your hair and let

Crazy Eyes! Give me your hair – let’s cut it!

I can even crack myself up when I’m alone taking my photo with a clicker

Come and get me! You know you want some of this! Sharp tool in my hand and hot iron at my side and all. Bring it on!


  • LinB - Not so much a “nerd” as an “intellectual smartmop.” (That was to have been “smarta$$” but I am trying not to curse so much anymore.)ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - So much fun! I love the first one 🙂

  • LinB - Umm. That was not meant to sound so mean as it does in print. My facebook friends have a running post today on other ways to describe themselves as nerdly than “nerd.” “Intellectual” plays a part in most of their submissions.ReplyCancel

  • Brenda Rogerson - We are so excited to have you and I can’t wait to meet.ReplyCancel

  • Ginger - You are too cute! I love that we’re a little community of nerds. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • petite josette - You’re hilarious! I’m a total sewing nerd myself, and I think it’s perfectly ok. You need a passion in life otherwise what’s the point? I wish I could go to the expo it sounds like an amazing event, and a perfect place to totally nerd out! You’ll be great there!ReplyCancel

  • Rochelle New - That’s so exciting!! Beautiful pictures too 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Maureen Cunningham - I, for one, am not a nerd. I’m a geek. Geek’s have skills.ReplyCancel

  • StephC - Oooh congrats! I’ll be keeping an eye out to see what you’ll be talking about.. Wish I could go!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - Nerds are the new cool people! I speak from experience lol. Love the first shot but they’re ALL fun!! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Sewing Princess - either you are a sewing nerd or a hairdresser wannabe :o) Nice pictures. I personally find it always hard to pose in pictures…not a natural at all!ReplyCancel

  • Tracey Wirth - I think I am going to go to this also! Michigan is my home state and my mom and pops still live there so this is a good excuse to go back and check in with the “rentals”. I missed this last year and was so sad 🙁 . I would have loved to have seen Gretchen’s creation and watch the whole process- if you are even allowed to do that? Great for you for teaching- well deserved, I can’t wait to benefit from all your knowledge!ReplyCancel

    • Sunni - Oh I would love to see you again Tracey! Yay! Definitely come – its sure to be colorful!ReplyCancel

  • Jodi - I am skeaming my way to get to ASE this year…. Now that my baby can handle a day of me away.ReplyCancel

  • Jeff J - HAHAhaha.

    That was me, laughing at you.
