The Refashion Co-op is run collectively by a group of editors that take turns to moderate the blog. Each day, an editor will check the posts, make sure the links work correctly, and delete offensive language or anything inappropriate (not that we think you would do a thing like that!).
The editors do not proofread your posts for grammar or spelling errors.

Chickie, USA: I’m Chickie. My older brother named me as a baby and it stuck. I am a wife, I married my high school sweetheart because after six years of dating. He is still the nicest guy I had ever met. I have three kids, ages 20, 17, and 1. No, that’s not a typo. The little guy is 1, and we are enjoying him so much. I homeschooled my big kids until they were ready for college classes and had tons of fun with homeschooling.

I started sewing about 20 years ago to alter my clothes to fit my five foot tall body. I also altered things for my kids. I shopped at thrift stores and made things work for us. It saved money and was the beginning of my love of refashioning whatever I got my hands on. If I really messed something up, I didn’t get too upset because I had not spent that much on it. Now, I usually alter some part of everything I wear.
I found other blogs about refashioning and read all I could. I find seeing what other people have created to be so inspiring. I enjoying all the different people and ideas I find online. I started my own blog, I Can Work With That, in 2015. It is a fun creative outlet for me to share my latest projects.
Happy sewing to you!
