I’m pleased to announce a new project I am starting. It’s a place for chronically ill sewists to ask questions, share inspiration, and also feel safe to talk about sewing issues that arise with chronic illnesses. This includes both physical and mental chronic illnesses.
Introducing @ChronicallySewn. For now, it lives on Instagram, but as it grows, I will explore other platforms for it, such as a facebook group or a blog. I want it to grow a bit first and then we’ll go from there.
If you are on Instagram and are a chronically ill sewist, please join and start using the hashtag #chronicallysewn or tag @chronicallysewn and I will repost to the account.
I hope you find it useful. I occasionally post about sewing as it related to chronic illness and decided it was time to create a community. Together we can share tips and tricks like erogonomic sewing tools, new ways of installing a collar or elastic that work with arthritis or tendon issues, self-care tips, and dealing with anxiety and sewing, for some examples. And so much more.
Join me on instagram and share your #chronicallysewn tips, tricks and projects.
