My name is Melissa Mortenson and I blog at the Polka Dot Chair. I am very excited to be working with Bernina, I love new adventures!

I’;m in my sixth year blogging, I have a hard time believing it’;s been that long. I started out sharing craft ideas on my family blog, I got a great reaction to those posts and decided to start a new blogaccent pillow case baby, the Polka Dot Chair. My blog is named after a chair I have in my sewing studio. It’;s a nice comfy place to sit to work on hand sewing projects or unpick mistakes.

I also have a pattern design company, fourteen may. Some of my favorite things to sew are bags, I can never have enough! In my shop you can find the patterns to make a few of your own. If you’;re wondering just who I am, here’;s a little bit about me. I live in Louisville, Kentucky… you know Kentucky, the place with the horses.

I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, my husband grew up in Louisville. When we were done with school we decided to put down roots in Kentucky. I’;ve lived here ever since and love it. I have three?kids. One daughter that is 17 and about to graduate high school, and if she doesn’;t give me enough gray hairs her twin siblings do. They came along when she was 6 years old, a baby brother and sister. After that our family was complete. I love to make all kinds of things. My?three true loves (besides my family) are sewing, papercrafting and travel. You can read about all?three of them on my blog.

Here are a few of my favorite sewing projects:

Retro Travel Bag

On the Go Reading Pillow

Summer Maxi Dress t-shirt refashion

Padded iPad Case

His &; Hers Baby Quilts
