What We Believe

We all have the urge to create. We think it’s as necessary to humans as food and water.

But our lives can be frantic. Between the pressures of work, school, family, and more, it’s all too easy to feel like we’re just treading water. Many of us live our whole lives without feeling like we gave ourselves the chance to explore our own creativity.

We want something better for ourselves, and for other women. We are on a mission to empower each other with ways to bring creativity to everyday life.

Sewing is an incredible tool for this. It changes our relationships with ourselves, with our bodies, and with the larger world.

We bring this form of creativity to people through beautiful and inspiring sewing patterns, books, and our monthly online magazine.

Join our quest to bring more creativity into the world.
