Hi, I’m Kate and I love sewing (and fabric). Sewing for me became an all-consuming hobby and I really really wanted a whole lot more space in the house for the fabric stash and sewing supplies as well as more hours in the day. I got to a point where I couldn’t remember what I had ordered when another happy mail day arrived (true story) and my mister said “another package arrived today – more fabric?”
After that little light bulb moment when I realised I was a fabricholic, I decided to take a sewing pause and spend some time looking into what I was actually buying. This led me to a short course in Sustainable Fashion at University of the Arts London and setting up this blog as an avenue for sharing any interesting stuff I can find in the textiles & environmental space as it applies to home sewing.
For the rest, I am a 30 something that works in the City of London, mother to the most delightful 1yo, and girlfriend of a handsome Dutchman. My sewing makes from stuff in my stash can be found on instagram: @timetosew, and at times on this blog.
