Hello and welcome to Grinlow Sews!

I’m Ruth. You might know me as @grinlowsews on Instagram or as consultant editor of Love Sewing magazine.

While sewing is a passion I managed to turn into my day job (hurrah for that!), I’m also a trained journalist with nearly twenty years experience across print, broadcast and online, not to mention a former academic with a doctorate in creativity (as it pertains to economic history… more on that another time!) and a long and varied freelance career as a research consultant.

This is where I share some of my own creative adventures: from dressmaking and tailoring to accessories and homewares, I’m looking forward to sharing a diary of my sewing antics with you.

I hope you enjoy your visit and to see you again soon!
