I’m Emily – it’s nice to meet you! Welcome my blog Self Assembly Required!
It’s all about making stuff (clothes in particular) if you hadn’t guessed already!
I’ve been sewing for the last 10+ years. I learnt all the basics of the craft from my mum as a teenager – lucky me! – and I’ve been going at it ever since! My skills have slowly improved year on year and I love to share my experiences, highs and lows as I continue on my sewing journey. I’d like to think of myself as a full time sewing blogger and part time dentist (that’s the day job and the money…)!
I’m hoping you’ll be inspired by what I’m doing to go out and try something new (or get back into an old hobby). I want everyone to feel like they can sew (because you can!) and to be able to create something individual and beautiful.
There’s a world full of gorgeous fabrics, trims and notions out there. Sometimes, you just need a little nudge to go out and find it!
