How to Sew Sustainably – Wendy Ward –
¨The creation of a garment that originally began as a flicker of an idea inside my head still seems to me to be a bit like magic.
Wendy has worked in the fashion industry for 7 years as a designer, she has a sewing column in the Love sewing magazine and has writen 4 books.
The latest is How to Sew Sustainably in 2021
This book fully explores my philosophy for dressing and sewing in a more sustainable way. Containing techniques for using scraps and small pieces of leftover and recycled fabrics, minimal waste clothing projects as well as projects for accessories, home sewing and art textiles.
An advocate of sustainable fashion having worked for a fair trade organic cotton brand for four years, I am passionate about empowering people to create their own style, interpret fashion in their own way and re-connect with the joy of making.
In 2019 I re-located back to my hometown of Sheffield in the foothills of the glorious Peak District.
I design my own range of sewing patterns, tools and accessories called MIY Collection which are available online here.
