National Sewing Month Featuring Tanya Whelan


Tanya shares her earliest sewing memory for National Sewing Month!


I started sewing as a kid, just little craft projects, learning the basics. When I was about 19 and had my first apartment, and very little money, I turned my mattress into a daybed with a proper box pleat slipcover and giant back pillows made from inexpensive muslin. I found this so empowering to be able to shape my world and make it a little bit nicer through sewing. I could not have imagined then that these experiences would eventually lead me to write two sewing books. Paying attention to the small things that bring you, joy, like sewing, can pay off in small and big ways.

So glad Tanya Whelan learned to express herself through sewing. Although I do not know her personally, she knows me. She creates the most beautiful designs for fabrics that touch my heart in a very personal way. Her designs bring me much joy.
