sewist & Me-maker
Passionate about sewing for over 20 years.
Hi, I’m Jenni
I’ve been sewing for as long as I can remember. My parents bought me my first sewing machine when I was in elementary school and I’m still using it!
I studied Clothing and Textiles at University where I learned things like pattern drafting, creating a line and the history of dress. Once I graduated, I worked in the world of fashion merchandising and did some historic costuming for the national historic sites of Canada.
A few years after I started working, I lost my sewing drive. It’s not until recently that I started up again. This is the first time in my life that I have been sewing clothing to wear on a daily basis.
This blog is here to document my sewing journey, to help and inspire others and to connect with the amazing sewing community. Hope you enjoy!
