My name is Emilia, a sewing enthusiast and sustainability freak calling Tokyo home.
I started this blog to chronicle my sewing journey, patterns I love (and, let’s be honest, hate), projects I’m doing, and share what I learn along the way. My reasons for learning to sew were, originally, mostly ethical, as I did not and still do not want to support a capitalist system that exploits the workforce and the environment. Over the years sewing has become more and more of a creative outlet, a way to realize my vision of myself fully. It’s also the “excuse” I use to educate folks on different topics, most times only tangentially related to sewing.
I’m a proud queer non-binary person. I use they/them pronouns, and not a day goes by without me engaging on some political discussion on Instagram. If you enjoy my content I would really appreciate it if you could support me here.
Some fun facts about me:
- I hate the color orange and celery with passion
- I have an extensive collection of small plates
- I am obsessed with labeling items
Hope you have fun reading my blog, and see you soon!
