Sewing clothes seems like a sewing challenge so thinking about making activewear takes that challenge and doubles down! Yet Melissa Fehr of Fehr Trade takes on challenges and conquers them. She learned to sew after moving to London from the United States. At the same time she was sewing, she was also running. Bored with pink and black women’s activewear, she decided to make her own. After needing a bone marrow transplant, Melissa kept sewing and running as soon as she could. Her inspirational story about pushing yourself, the power of learning different skills and the importance of self improvement.
