Contributors & Staff

Meet the writers, makers, and artists from this month’s issue.

Contributing Writers

Chelsea Miller

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.

Farrah Dodson

As the Graphic Designer here at Seamwork HQ, Farrah helps us capture the magic of sewing through graphic design, creating our brand identity and making sure that each issue of Seamwork looks perfect.

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.

Kenn Wilson

As Co-founder, Director of Operations, and an avid coffee drinker, Kenn makes sure that all of our web sites and digital products are functioning properly.

Meg Stively

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.

Robin Ives

Robin dreams in patterns. When awake, she leads the Pattern Development Team here at Seamwork and is passionate about the importance of failing on a regular basis, sustainability, and having a well-stocked candy drawer.

Sarai Mitnick

Sarai founded Colette in 2009, and now handles strategy, communication, and creative direction. She is the author of The Colette Sewing Handbook and also hosts the Seamwork Radio podcast.

Sienna Parfitt

Sienna taught herself to sew in late 2014 using thrifted bed sheets and indie patterns, and she’s been obsessed ever since. You can find her work on Instagram @notaprimarycolor and on her blog notaprimarycolor.com.

Taylor Pruitt

Taylor has an eye for design. As the UX Designer for Seamwork and Colette she wants to make sure your online experiences are fun and enjoyable.

Wallis Smith-Owens

Wallis is a patternmaker here at Seamwork, and she loves to see what you make from the patterns she drafts. When she’s not sewing, she’s fostering dogs, so you’ll most likely find her running around with her rescue golden retriever and gang of foster pups.
