Mary Abreu has been crafting most of her life, although she admits that sticking to one or two is a challenge (hence the “ADD crafter” moniker). Her first book — Little Girls, Big Style (Stash Books, an imprint of C&T Publishing) — was published in 2010; her second book, Modern Style for Girls, was out in October 2015. Hack that Tote!, Mary’s third book with Stash Books, was published in September 2016.

She is an accomplished sewing instructor who teaches a wide range of classes including beginning sewing, serger techniques, apparel and bag making, decoding sewing patterns and even quilting classes. Mary has sewn for fabric manufacturers and designers, creating tutorials and samples used to market new lines and patterns.

Mary has worked as a seamstress with Whitestone Motion Pictures, a small movie production company near Atlanta, and has wardrobe department credits on two short films, including The Candy Shop, starring Doug Jones, as well as a History Channel show. Mary also sewed for the third season of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow.

An award-winning journalist, Mary has worked as an editor, writer and art director at newspapers and magazines throughout the Southeast United States during her 24-year career. She tries to squeeze in the occasional freelance writing and editing gig — although running a household and parenting three kids (26, 23 and 12) are her first priority.

Mary and her Honey will celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary this summer, although she’s not sure if he’s as willing to mark the occasion at DragonCon as she is.

She enjoys attending pop culture conventions, where she is a regular presenter on the topics of pattern drafting and hacking, costuming for children, and historically influenced costuming. She lives with her family near Atlanta, Georgia.
