    Miriam has been helping Ruth Collins get the word out about top down center out method and it's easy to understand why when you hear Miriam's sewing story.

    Miriam was encouraged to sew through 4H programs.

    Miriam has a phD in English and she immediately realised Ruth is a scientist by how Ruth was communicating about Top Down Center Out method. She tells us about her experience of using a dress form to get good fitting clothes but this meant Miriam had to make the dress form fit her body shape.

    You'll hear how Miriam describes Top Down Center Out method as 'body agnostic'.

    Marja-Liisa

    When you look a Marja-Liisa's Instagram feed, you'll not know she has only been sewing her own clothes or the last 2 and a half years.
    In 2019 Marja-Lisa found The Avid Seamstress patterns at Liberty in London and that is when she began to think about sewing her own clothes. At the start of the first lockdown, and after watching a few episodes of the Great British Sewing Bee, she decided to try sewing clothes.
    When Marja-Lisa first tried to sew her first dress, she used a very old bedsheet to learn the construction process involved before she cut into her Liberty of London fabric.
    Since then she has become a pattern tester and helped out SewOver50 and managed a guest post on Instagram.

    Sewthreadbear

    Elke does have an actual thread bear, hence her Instagram name sewthreadbear. She tells us the how close to her heart this bear is to her.
    While Elke can't remember who taught her to sew, she has always sewn and in a way was influenced by her 2 aunts on her father's side. Her aunts had a knitting machine and they created the most beautiful knitted garments.
    What Elke did realise that using a knitting machine would mean she would need lots of storage space for all the wool yarns used, as she saw from her aunts.
    Elke talks about how as a sewist, we get caught in the perfection of the pattern we're using. She has learnt that if the garment looks good from 3' away, you've done a great job.
    She has sewn some amazing garments using Julia Allison Cost fabrics too.
