"The act of sewing should be, at its root, an act of resistance to fast fashion. They say fast, we say slow. They say more, we say less. They say perfection, we say process. They say competition, we say community." - Meg McElwee, creator of the Mindful Wardrobe ProjectExperience the warmth of the Mindful Wardrobe community

What others are saying ...
"Meg’s course really helped me fill in the blanks in creating a true capsule wardrobe that works for me. I started sewing this year, which brings with it learning what patterns and design lines look good on my specific body. The tips I learned in Meg’s course will help me as I further refine my wardrobe."
- Candace N'Diaye
"Your sewing course was transformative, absolutely life changing! I’ve made so much more space in my heart and my house for sewing. I’ve got a wardrobe of 15 pieces planned, colors and fabrics in mind, a pile of decent goodwill fabric for making a first draft, taped and cut out a few of my patterns, and I’ve made two pieces so far. This is a lot considering I’m a momma of five! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
