Hi, I’m Amanda.
I’m obsessed with books, sewing machines, vintage fashion, visual art and philosophy of history. And David Bowie. When I’m not brooding, I sew. And sometimes I even brood while I sew.
My childhood dream was to be a librarian. Instead, I was a philosophy student, then I was a creative writing student, and now I’m a supposed adult with two degrees of little obvious use, a crafting addiction and three cats. I’m also a self taught sewist/patternmaker/tinkerer fascinated most by the designs, methods and social history of the late 1870s-1930s and the sewing machinery of the early 1900s.
