Sew Liberated never ceases to amaze me - your patterns are inspiring & your service is exceptional. There are many amazing indie pattern companies but yours stands out & connects with sewists in a very unique & positive way. Thirteen of my 250+ patterns are yours. I reach for them most often to sew & to wear (who knew a Stasia dress could see you through a day of work, errands, events & a good night's sleep?!). Whatever magic you're working, please keep doing it & count me in as one of your groupies.

Your course was transformative, absolutely life changing! I’ve made so much more space in my heart and my house for sewing. I’ve got a wardrobe of 15 pieces planned, colors and fabrics in mind, a pile of decent goodwill fabric for making a first draft, taped and cut out a few of my patterns, and I’ve made two pieces so far. This is a lot considering I’m a momma of five! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I’m Meg, and I passionately believe that what you put on your body matters.

Your clothing choices affect your mood, which affects your thoughts, which make you … well, YOU.

I want you to dress yourself with intention. To clothe yourself in lovingly-made, well-fitting treasures. To dress how you want to FEEL.

I didn’t always have this clarity surrounding my wardrobe. Learn more about how my son’s devastating diagnosis shaped me into the confident and purpose-filled sewist I am today.

You want to love your wardrobe. You want the joy of making something beautiful.

But, let’s be honest, that long list of potential projects can be OVERWHELMING, making you feel anxious rather than joyful.

I’ve developed a Guide to Holding Time for Creativity where I show you a path to slowing down, finding mental space, and turning your sewing into a practice of self-care.
