So, lets introduce ourselves!
Our new editor, Wendy Gardiner, has been influential in the sewing industry for many years and is an internationally accredited sewing guru. She is also author of a number of sewing books, writer and presenter of several new sewing DVDs. Wendy strongly believes in sharing sewing skills and knowledge so that more people can make their own fashion and furnishings and realise they can be fast, fun and simple to create. And with today’s climate of Make do and Mend, she likes to share many tips on restyling and upcycling all of which can be done inexpensively and allows people to dip their toe into the addictive activity that is sewing!
The new Deputy Editor (me) is a keen crafter, though new to the world of sewing. She makes her own jewellery, loves drawing and writing and is currently learning to sew! Her background is in magazines and she’s super-keen on keeping Sew Hip the best sewing magazine in the UK!
Sarah is our wonderful tech editor. She’s a lover of all things handmade who caught the sewing bug two years ago and hasn’t put the sewing machine down since! She’s completely self-taught – and learnt to master the basics by sewing for her home, children and friends, before going on to specialise in handbags and setting up her own business, Sparkle Handbags, with a friend 18 months ago.
