Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! My name's Zoe and this blog is all about my explorations into sewing and refashioning. These passions form a big part of my desire to live a more sustainable and authentic life. I also aim to inspire and assist others in making/remaking their own clothing so I regularly posts tips, tricks, tutorials, how-to's and ideas as well as documenting my own creations.
I'm the creator of the popular online me-made/self-stitched challenges which ask sewers/knitters/crocheters/refashioners to wear hand-created clothing every day for a month. The aim is to encourage people to bring the DIY and handmade ethos into their everyday lives. The next challenge will be Me-Made-May '15, sign-ups begin on 1st April!!!
Currently I live in Hastings on the South Coast of the UK, am self-employed and am the mum of baby Dolores. My activities include organising a regular contemporary craft and handmade markets called Brighton Craftaganza. I also teach sewing classes at The Village Haberdashery, West Hampsted, London; Tilly and the Buttons's HQ, London, and Sew in Brighton, Brighton/Hove, East Sussex.
You can contact me at: sozoblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm always open to collaborations and ideas related to sewing, refashioning and sustainability.
