Contributors & Staff

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

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.

Jo Salt

Jo has been sewing since childhood, but still has plenty to learn. She originally hails from sunny California but has settled in less-sunny London with her family of tomato-mispronouncing Brits.

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.

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

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.
