Hello fellow sewists!
After many months of research, writing, photographing, learning (more than I can say) and buying, the big day has arrived.
Cloth Edit is a curated collection of beautiful fabrics, inspiring indie sewing patterns, and quality haberdashery essentials. I've selected the brands and fabric that I love, but I think you will like them too.
Cloth Edit is a one woman show (for now) ;-). As I say farewell to my previous career, I am circling back to where I started my working life thirty years ago, which was in a department store selling haberdashery and fabric. Really ;-).
About four years ago I stumbled across sewing vloggers, indie patterns and the Instagram sewing community, and these all reignited my sew-jo which dwindled after having kids, and subsequent study. My everyday wardrobe is now all ‘me made’. This community also reassured me that I wasn’t alone in my love for fabric and patterns, and that finding my happy space in sewing was ok.
For the last several years I've been working as a sessional academic, but have been dreaming of bringing the threads of my past – sewing, retail, research – together into this new online conception. I love providing excellent service and my wish is that you have a great experience here at Cloth Edit.
I will be using this space to share what is inspiring me, what my plans are, what I've made, and for any sewing tips.
My motto for Cloth Edit is “Take your time and enjoy the process”. Thank you for stopping by. It means the world to me.
