Today my first ever guest post is going up on Sewcialists! I was really pleased to see this group blog being revived as it covers all sorts of different sewing related topics. I was even more chuffed when Gillian agreed for me to write a post. It is a slight departure from my usual writing as it is a personal essay on why I care about sustainable sewing. As you will know by now the it is a topic close to my heart (that’s why this blog even exists!) and I think it is really important to highlight it to fellow sewists. Especially given the times we live in with a lot of debate around climate change and environmental issues.
As for this blog, the aim is to continue writing one interesting fact based piece on textiles etc. once a month. It takes significant effort to research and get comfortable with “facts” I am sharing and form an opinion. As with everyone else, time is always an issue. So I will have to mix it up with some of my projects and (usually) sustainability related thoughts.
