Sarah VeblenHi, I’m Sarah Veblen.

Over the 30-plus years that I’ve been making custom clothing and teaching sewing and design, I’ve discovered some common threads about people. The first is that when people feel good in what they are wearing, they approach life with a more positive and creative attitude. I’ve also learned that when people engage with a creative process, such as sewing, it naturally leads them to feel better about themselves by fostering greater skill knowledge as well as self knowledge.

 Helping people – especially women, who I work with most often – open the door to feeling good about themselves through a creative medium is a driving force behind all of my teaching.

 In this blog, I share whatever thoughts and reflections are currently on my mind about creativity and the creative process, seen through the lenses of my sewing and teaching. We all learn from each other, so please join the conversation.
