I’m really proud of the newest series on the Sewcialists, which will continue to run periodically between theme months. It’s titled “Who We Are”, and it’s an exploration of identity, intersectionality, and sewing. Basically, it’s what happens when my teacher brain melds with my love of sewing and my enduring nosiness into other people’s lives!
The premise of the series is asking people how identity affects sewing, from age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, health, language, sewing experience, body type, or any one of a million other possibilities. The first post introduces the idea with some reflective questions, and the second post is more about me and why I think this conversation is worth having! It’s really worth reading the comments – they are excellent!
I’ve already learned a lot about people that I don’t think I would have learned otherwise… and I’m really looking forward to reading about different perspectives and experiences as the series continues! Please go check it out!
