Contributing Writers

Chelsea Eisenberg

When she isn’t pattern hacking, Chelsea is drawing step-by-step pattern instructions in Illustrator. As the Technical Illustrator here at Seamwork, she loves to make our instructions easy to follow and fun to read.

Haley Glenn

Haley doesn’t just want to design clothing you’ll love to wear, but clothing you’ll love to sew. With a background in both design and teaching, she combines her talents to imagine patterns with thoughtful details that build your skills as you sew.

Jenny Gordy

Jenny Gordy started Wiksten as a clothing line in 2004, and it’s now turned into a well-loved brand that combines a genuine understanding of textiles, smart patternmaking, and practical, must-have designs. In her shop, you’ll find womenswear patterns, knitting and sewing patterns for children, fabric bundles, and ready-to-wear pieces.

Jessica Wright

Jess is a Seamwork ambassador who has a strong love for sewing, sustainability, and taking the time to explore the creative process. She sews her own wardrobe and designs patterns for felt masks, and you can follow her work on Instagram or on her website

Meg is here to help you. As the managing editor for Seamwork and the smiling face behind our social media, she loves to talk to you about how much fun it is to sew your own wardrobe.
