The Sewist Society
sustainable home and personal accessories
It is the mission, duty and purpose of The Sewist Society to uplift sewing as skilled labor and bring awareness to how our clothes are made, who makes them, and why sewing is a valuable and necessary skill. We recycyle fiber and fabric to reduce waste in our local landfills, as well as, provide income opportunities and further education for home sewers
Education and Skill share
The Sewist Society will bring awareness and spotlight sewing as a skill/trade that we need to value again. We will uplift sewing and seamstresses and bring attention to the gender and class issue that has become embedded in the current sewing factory culture, as well.
When you purchase from The Sewist Society, you are supporting artists and artisans, while diverting fabric waste from our landfills.
“I am certain that a Sewing Machine would relieve as much human suffering as a hundred Lunatic Asylums, and possibly a good deal more.”
