Spotlight on: Ron Collins

I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for a little while now, as Ron Collins is one of my absolute favourite sewing personalities.  As a young teenager some 10 or 15 years ago, I remember meeting the designer, speaker and teacher, and being quite impressed that he was so cool and also made really great garments.  My opinion or Ron hasn’t much changed, except that I’m even more impressed now than I was at 13.  Since our first meeting, Ron has gone on to appear on HGTV, Sew Perfect, Life Network, CTV, Sew Much Fun, and Eyes On Toronto.  He has also produced several Power Sewing DVD’s with author Sandra Betzina.
