Sewlebrity: Vanessa Vargas Wilson, The Crafty Gemini

Sew-MINI Things has begun working with “Sewlebrities”. What’s a Sewlebrity? Well they are your favorite bloggers and vloggers teaching you tips on sewing, fabric and crafting. Our first Sewlebrity is Vanessa Vargas Wilson who is located right here in our home state of Florida. Vanessa is an enthusiastic teacher and a speed demon on her Juki!

Vanessa Vargas Wilson¡Hola! My name is Vanessa (a.k.a- Crafty Gemini) and this is my home on the web! Welcome!

The hubs and I have two crafty characters: Jonathan (Juice) is 6 and Allie is 4. We live on a 5-acre organic homestead about 20 minutes north of Gainesville, FL.

I was born in NYC and raised in Miami, FL.

I am fluent in English and Spanish.

My family is from Dominican Republic.

My goal in life: To learn as much as I can about as much as I can…. and then pass that knowledge to my kiddos.

In August 2011 my husband and I purchased a 5-acre property so we could raise & homeschool/unschool our children and live a more simple and natural way of life. We are city folk learning to live off our land with hopes of one day being able to grow all (or most) of our own food.

I am a two-time graduate of the University of Florida {GO GATORS!} where I earned a B.A. in Anthropology and a Juris Doctor degree. I used to be a college law professor and now Crafty Gemini is my full-time business. I am thankful to be able to earn a living living my life.

I welcome you to look around my website for all kinds of crafty inspiration, ideas and project tutorials. Just click the TUTORIALS tab to get you started. My instructional videos are just as scattered as my Gemini brain! I teach you how to do everything from sewing and quilting to simple woodworking projects, soapmaking and even organic gardening. I like to think I have something for everyone. But I’ll let you decide!

In 2015 we launched a subscription based online Quilt Club which has been a HUGE hit! We currently have over 800 members from all around the world! My Club is open to quilters of all skill levels from the complete newbie to the veteran quilt maker! You can watch this short video to see some of the Club projects I teach you how to make and learn more about the Club giveaways, weekly livestream videos, monthly swaps, tips & tricks videos and more!

I also have an online shop where I sell my original acrylic rulers, sewing and quilt PDF patterns, online video classes and other goodies.
