Thursday 9 September 2021: Sewprettyinpink or Andie Wells is our first #Chronicallysewn podcast series guest for Sewover50. As they say, ‘do what’s right for you’.
Andie is an artist, sewist, writer and improv comedian. Andie also describes themselves as a disabled fat Endy Babe interested in sewing, fashion, Lingerie, Swimwear and EDS.
Andie talks about their developing @Chronicallysewn and the current #slowprojectchallenge. Chronicallysewn is an inclusive space for chronically ill (mental/physical) sewists. Slow Project Challenge runs over 3 months and the emphasis is on rest. There’s no need to finish a project or projects.
Andie has found that online events are more accessible than in person events. She had a wonderful experience at this year’s Sewing Weekender and says why the organisation of the Sewing Weekender was so brilliant and was very accessible.
