The Collective

Meet the talented Monthly Stitch Collective members:

The Editors:

Kat – Ah, sewing, how I love thee. Especially when bright colours and crazy prints are involved. Match those with vintage patterns (especially from the 1940s and 1950s) or my latest love, indie patterns, and I’m a happy busy little sewing bee.

After sewing along with The Sew Weekly nearly every week during 2011 and 2012, I was missing the weekly challenges. So a couple of my fellow New Zealand sewing bloggers, Mel and Juliet, and I put our heads together and came up with The Monthly Stitch as a way to add some creativity-inducing challenges into our lives and help prioritise our sewing to-do lists.

Mel – Everyone’s got to be a little nerdy at something and I am a nerd with a sewing machine! I am obsessed with collecting patterns, fabric, buttons, vintage (and miniature) sewing machines and I am passionate about social sewing.

I live in New Zealand’s creative (and actual) capital, Wellington and I’ve been sewing for as long as I can remember, but more seriously since 2008. I started the The Monthly Stitch with Kat and Juliet as a fun way to boost my sewing inspiration and waning productivity and take as many other creatives as I can along with me.

Nikki – I’m a crazy English girl now living in the coolest little capital in the world, ie Wellington, NZ. I’ve been here over five years and have made a life for myself sewing, talking about sewing, blogging about sewing and basically dreaming sewing, oh, and enabling friends with fabric/pattern purchases! 🙂

I’ve been sewing since I can remember. I used to watch Mum sew and knit when I was a wee whipper snapper. She taught me and I probably learned lots of bad habits. I’ve been making the effort recently to check my fit and take time ensuring I’m happy with my finish. I’ve loved being a contributor to The Monthly Stitch, you guys are so much inspiration and a great world wide group of sewing friends.

  1. I just happened to “stumble upon” your blog, as it was linked from one of your regular followers/contributors. LOVE this idea! It will certainly keep me sewing throughout the year as I usually have a tendancy to not get much sewing in when I put the machine away…. I really do need to change one of my rooms into a sewing room so the machine is always available! 🙂 Can’t wait to sew along with you in the coming months!!
