Where I Sew – Elizabeth Olwen

on Jul 21, 2014 in Sewing, Where I Sew | 82 comments

I’m a Toronto-based surface pattern designer and would describe my work as delicate, romantic and modern with a hint of vintage. I’ve loved sewing since I was a girl so having my own fabric lines with Cloud9 has been a dream! My first line, Grey Abbey, came out last winter, and my next, Wildwood, ships in September. I also design for other product categories, like bedding, stationery, gift and decor.

  3. I love the magnetic boards- I just bought a smaller one to use to hold the patterns/ projects I’m working on or want to make in the near future. Thanks for sharing, can’t wait for your new line!

  23. Your sewing room is so clean… you should see mine. I blame it all on the tiny size of my room but so happy to have it for my sewing.
