Our Mission

Welcome to the Sewcialists!

Our goal is to build community and make everyone feel welcome. Our blog is here for everyone to share their sewing stories and to celebrate our unique identities and experiences. We support crafting as an inclusive and welcoming space for people of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders, orientations and sizes. If you sew, we want to hear your voice. 

Sewcialists is a hyper-inclusive editorial site. We recognize that all of us make up an amazing and varied community. We ask that you take each challenge as you see it fitting in your life, and express your involvement how you like, at the given time. Our challenges are for the pure enjoyment of participation and the love of community.

We post Monday, Wednesday and Friday, thanks to the hard work of our volunteer team. We host over 100 authors a year, all of whom are volunteers from our community!

Over the last 6 years, the idea of a “Sewcialist” grew from a series of tweets to an active worldwide community. Follow us on Instagram at @sewcialists or contact us by email at sewcialists@gmail.com!
