While I scroll through my Instagram feed, I try to “like”/give a heart to most posts and then move on. When I reach certain feeds, I pause, settle in and read through their thoughtful posts. Their pictures are usually fantastic but it’s their words that draw me in. Meg McElwee of Sew Liberated is one of those feeds.
Admittedly, I have followed her work since the days of her Schoolhouse Tunic pattern release. Garment sewing was still scary for me then so while I didn’t try to make a tunic, I admired both the design and the fact it could be made with quilting cottons. I read (and cried!) about her son’s heart condition and curiously watched what she would do next. Over the last year or so, Meg has reached a new level of garment design and personal sharing. Her work inspires me and I couldn’t wait to talk with her about how her pattern business has evolved. I hoped we would touch on her connection to slow making, teaching children about self love and care and the life long sewing adventure. I was lucky we talked about all of that and more. I hope you enjoy the episode.
