This blog is a lot of love and a lot of sewing machine.
Oh hello, everyone- my name is Bianca Santori, the woman behind the blog!
With a love of vintage fashion, I show people the joys of sewing handmade by embracing their unique body, learning the skills to make something special. Vintage on Tap captures projects and video sewing tutorials I’ve created with my husband Jose, where we break down the ins and outs of why sewing works the way it does through beautiful images and thoughtful video production.
With nearly 20 years experience, I learned to sew with what was available in the early 2000s internet (Geocities and Livejournal, anyone?) Today, I’ve taken those tech beginnings to the next level, working in Silicon Valley during my 9-5.
This blog (and YouTube channel) builds on my love of vintage sewing, tiki drink culture, and making magic happen with a sewing machine and technique. I deep dive on specific patterns, best practices, and share my experience in well-crafted video.
My work has been featured in Seamwork Magazine, Sewn Magazine, and in collabs with McCall’s Pattern Company.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
