Sarai Mitnick Host

Sarai is the founder of Seamwork and an advocate for creativity in everyday life. She has been sewing for 25 years, and publishing patterns, best-selling sewing books, articles, and building community in the sewing world for the last 14. She's a collector of all sorts of hobbies, because there's nothing she'd rather do than make something with her hands.

Haley Ladouceur Co-host

Haley believes that there is an artist in each of us, and that creativity isn’t so much inherent as it is practiced. That’s why she pivoted from a career path in the apparel industry to pursue home sewing back in 2012. Since then she has been teaching, writing, and designing with the intent of spreading the joy of sewing. As the pattern designer at Seamwork she brings her love of design and teaching together to create patterns that feel intentional and help you explore your own creativity and sewing talents.
