Hi! I’m Alexandra



Hi! My name is Alexandra. I blog over at The Library of Alexandra. I blog about sewing, textiles, books and reading!

By day I am a high school librarian, but by night I sew up a storm! I grew up watching my mother sew and hearing stories of my grandmother’s time working in the Philadelphia garment district, but I only recently took up sewing myself. I made my first dress in December 2015 and have been sewing like gangbusters ever since! I like to challenge myself with sewing projects, and want to try out sewing a coat and jeans this year.

I'm Alexandra Patterson. I currently work at an independent boarding school in Pennsylvania as a research librarian.
