Contributing Writers

Tilly Walnes

Tilly is the founder of Tilly and the Buttons, creators of gorgeous, easy-to-use sewing patterns, books, and online workshops for the new wave of DIY dressmakers. 

Haley Glenn

Five years ago, Haley left the apparel industry to join the world of home sewing. She has been empowering women to sew ever since—first through years of in-person teaching at Sew LA, and now through her work at Colette. Haley writes tutorials and articles on our blog, teaches sewalongs, and writes and edits for Seamwork magazine.

Mary Rockcastle

Mary Rockcastle is a designer, seamstress, and maker living in Rochester, New York. She graduated Parsons, the New School for Design in 2015 with a BFA in illustration. Combined with a new understanding for the fashion industry and the traumatic collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013, Mary became interested in making her own clothes. 

Josie Hawes

Josie is your fabric godmother. She runs an online fabric and haberdashery shop that stocks the dressmaking fabric of your dreams.

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.

Taylor Pruitt

Taylor has an eye for design, photography, and fabric. As the Art Director for Seamwork and Colette, she loves to tell a visual story with our patterns each month.
