Saturday Sewing Classes Zoe

Zoé Edwards is the brains behind the phenomenon that is Me Made May and author of the popular blog So Zo What Do You Know? Zoe currently teaches the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month at MIY Workshop. Here are Zoé’s impressive credentials:

Having graduated with a degree in Fashion Design, Zoe Edwards went on to work in the fashion industry in a variety of roles for a number of years. The distaste she developed for mass-produced clothing and production practices fuelled her growing passion for creating her own clothing by hand and she set up a now successful sewing blog that has an emphasis on sewing sustainably with style. Her passion for sewing, refashioning, and the UK handmade scene has continued to grow. Currently she teaches sewing in London, develops her own sewing patterns and runs a regular contemporary craft market called Brighton Craftaganza. She’s also the creator of the popular annual Me-Made-May challenges which ask sewers/knitters/crocheters/refashioners to wear hand-created clothing every day for a month. The aim of these challenges is to encourage people to bring the DIY and handmade ethos into their everyday lives, and to help them develop a better relationship with their handmade wardrobe.
