Welcome to WanderStitch 🙂
I’m Sarah; 30-something pink-and-purple-haired crazy-lady. I’m here to share with you my journey of creating things with needle and thread.
The story behind the name of this blog starts with my love of travel, the wanderlust that I so frequently get, dreaming of all the places I would like to visit. I imagine this feeling to be similar to the thoughts that needles and thread would get when thinking about the amazing garments they could be the foundations for… oh the possibilities! All the different fabrics! Colours! Dreaming whether they will end up being part of a sleeve or pocket, of a silky blouse or warm wool coat. You get the idea.
I’m currently based in London but dream of one day living in NYC. I lived in Asia for a couple of years a little while back, and brought back my two little furkids from there. I’m a dog mum, a pianist, a cyclist, and when I’m not sewing I can usually be found working in finance to pay for fabric, buttons and patterns.
Pink things, sweet popcorn, watching movies, comfy jumpers, socks, Alexander Henry fabric.
Floral prints, tomato ketchup (yes really), the dark.
I’m totally self-taught, I got my first sewing machine at the age of 16 and have slowly but surely progressed from simple cushions and homewares, to curtains, then easy garments such as skirts, onto dress shirts and coats. There’s no stopping me now… no piece of fabric is safe!
Join me as I attempt to make all the things 🙂
