Hello and welcome to Sewgirl website and blog, my name is Fiona Hesford and am passionate about teaching everyone on the planet to sew!

I’m based in sunny Worthing on the South coast of England, with my gorgeous husband Marko and cute Little cat called Madame Mabelline (Mabel for short).

My children are all grown up now and fled the nest, so I devote my time to teaching sewing, writing projects for magazines, appearing on TV craft channels and producing patterns and kits under the Sewgirl brand.

I like to design clothing that I wear myself everyday, in fact I rarely buy clothes from shops anymore. Wearing something that you have made yourself is very satisfying. Obviously, it takes a bit of practise, and you get better the more that you do, but choosing the fabric and the pattern style, means you have something totally unique to you. Its a way of discovering yourself.

This blog and website, is a place dedicated to show you, with clear photos and text, how to make Sewgirl patterns, along with pattern hacks, tutorial films and fabric suggestions. Think of it as a helping hand to assist you along your sewing path. By the way, if you subscribe to this blog, you will be notified whenever I post something like a new pattern, technique tutorial or info.

Whether you have been to one of my workshops or have bought a pattern, this blog  aims to help you through sewing process to make your experience hassle free.

If you would like to purchase one of my patterns, please click the link below which will take you to the Etsy shop. Happy sewing ! X Fiona

  1. You need to bring it up with the magazine. My contract agreement stipulates that they are available for 6 months, actually most of them were available for much longer than that. I don’t work for Love Sewing. You need to contact them.
    Thankyou and sorry I can’t be of more help
