Now, as managing editor for Seamwork Magazine, she's here to share your stories and connect you to the worldwide Seamwork community.

Haley Glenn

Co-Host & Producer

Haley’s love for storytelling and inquisitive nature has always defined her. She is passionate about coming together through the stories that characterize and unify us as sewers. It is this vibrant community of makers that inspired her to pivot from a career path in the apparel industry to pursue home sewing. Since that moment, Haley has dedicated her work to bringing people together through sewing, from writing, design, teaching, and now Seamwork Radio.

Taylor Pruitt

Taylor asks a lot of questions, some may think too many, but it stems from her curiosity. She’s curious about people, who they are, where they are from, how they got to where they are and where they want to go. As the UX designer her main priority is making sure she’s providing great online experiences. As a producer on Seamwork Radio she connects with creative people to learn about their real life experiences.
