To the Wonderful Women of the Sewing Community


In honour of International Women's Day, please enjoy the newly made-over A Day in the Life contents page, showcasing some of the wonderful women who work hard to produce and share with us their fabric designs, patterns, teaching, writing and handmade clothing. These women inspire me every day with their vision, creativity, thoughtfulness and hard work. You can take a sneaky peek into their daily lives here.

More great Day in the Life interviews are coming soon. If there is someone you admire who has turned their love of stitching into a career, please let me know and I'll see if I can feature them in a future month...

PS. Sew Over It, featured in the series and where So Zo now works, has just launched some great-looking new workshops, including this vintage shirt dress class.

    1. So would I! But the feature focuses on women who work full time or most of the time in a sewing-related career... maybe some day that will be them!

  11. Wonderful series Tilly and how perfectly apt to celebrate these inspirational women today. I'm really pleased you put the contents page up too, for some reason, the Ohhh Lulu interview slipped through my net, so it was great to read it for the first time. Especially as I've just ordered some gorgeous knickers from her....! x
