What’s your sewing secret weapon?
A deep breath and a good pair of scissors.

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I live in Baden, a little town in the Northern part of Switzerland, close to the German border. Baden is the German word for “bath,” and it really used to be the equivalent of the British Bath.

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I’m from Highland, Utah, and I’m actually living in my childhood home, my parents moved away, and my husband and I were appointed the caretakers. Other than sewing, I really like to cook, garden. Currently, I’m trying to exercise regularly, but I just hate doing it. I also used to own a tailoring shop that I sold just a month ago.

I was born in Surrey, England but eventually settled in West London where I work as a freelance Graphic Designer. My work is very creative and varied, and I currently have the absolute pleasure of designing childrens books. That said, I crave sewing time and my obsession grows by the day!

Where are you from and/or where do you live now? What do you do other than sewing?
I’m from a small village near the city of Bergamo, North of Italy. I studied History of Art at Milan University and “Tailoring for Showbiz” at Teatro alla Scala Academy. I’ve also worked in Rome for a few weeks at a costume house that are preparing costumes for a Turandot opera. My plan, though, is to open my own handmade shop. That’s my dream!

Where are you from and/or where do you live now? What do you do other than sewing?
I was born in Long Beach, California, but grew up on Sydney’s Northern beaches. I am the younger of only two siblings and grew up a part of a close, creative and colourful family in an old return serviceman’s house that was built in the late 1940’s. My childhood was always spent following one creative pursuit or another, be it sewing little clothes and beds for “the garden fairies” or writing quirky, albeit somewhat morbid tales. I now live in Sydney’s inner west in an old Victorian Terrace called “Horaceville” and work full time as a receptionist for a fashion house.

Where are you from and where do you live now?
I grew up in Lincoln City, Oregon (the central coast), but now live in Brooklyn, New York. I’m a writer (a journalist and also a budding screenwriter).

If we were to come to your town, where would you take us?
I’d take you to the discount “jobbers” on 39th street between 7th and 8th for great deals on cottons and silk, then to B&J on 7th Avenue to drool at the amazing selection of dream fabrics. We’d go to Purl Soho for awesome quilting fabrics. In Brooklyn, we’d go down to Red Hook to Brooklyn General Store, a sweet little knitting and fabric shop that carries all natural fiber textiles.

Where are you from and where do you live now?
I’m a native Californian living in Los Angeles. Besides sewing, I love to draw, cook, collect vintage, and grow things.

If we were to come to your town, where would you take us?
L.A. has a lot to offer—and not just tourist traps! First, I’d suggest coming in the spring when the jacarandas are in bloom. We have so many flowering trees here, something is blooming year round but I think the purple flowers of the jacaranda are the most striking.

Where do you live?
I live in Sydney, Australia. Inner West Sydney is a real creative and quirky area –full of cool cafes and junk shops- I love it. Besides sewing I make jewellery from found objects.

If we were to come to your town, where would you take us?
Sydney has some amazing and famous landmarks but I would take creative visitors to the great industrial waste recyclers like Reverse Garbage or The Bower- both within walking distance of home.

Where are you from and where do you live now?
I was born and brought up in South Africa, but now live in the UK with my husband and two teenage daughters. I live in a small market town called Shipston-on-Stour in South Warwickshire near Stratford-upon-Avon. It’s a great little town with a fabulous old fashioned identity, but unfortunately no fabric shop. Currently I work for myself and my girls! I used to teach fashion part-time in adult education, but with the funding being as it is for adult education at the moment, I get to sew at home all day, everyday!

I am from Chennai, India. I was born and brought up here and have lived all my 31 years of live so far out here in this beautiful, traditional, conservative yet caring city of Chennai. I am a SAHM (ex-s/w engineer) who loves pampering her 4.5 year old little princess and an aspiring freelance fashion designer dreaming of launching own clothing line in near future!
