Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! My name's Zoe and this blog is all about my explorations into sewing and refashioning. These activities (read: obsessions) 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. Theext challenge will be Me-Made-May '14, sign-ups begin on 1st April!!!
Currently I live in Brighton, 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 Sew Over It, North Clapham, London, and at The Village Haberdashery, West Hampsted, London.
You can contact me at: sozoblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm always open to collaborations and ideas related to sewing, refashioning and sustainability.
