One conversation with Evie, and you know this girl is full of energy and truly passionate about sustainability and sewing. A great head on her shoulders, she has clever high end design concepts, and at the same time is humble and friendly and loves to get on down and craft up a storm too. We are so pleased to welcome Evie to teach in the Sew Love lounge... Starting with Braiding a Rag Rug workshop on Thursday 21st August, and a Yoga Mat Bag on Thursday 28th August. See the calendar here.
Hi All! I'm Evie Batts a sustainable sewer! My passion for the up-rise of environmentally friendly sewing has lingered in my heart since I was young, drawn to the idea of change for the better! Born in Auckland, New Zealand I have journeyed through a BFA majoring in Fashion which further developed and evoked my personal opinion on the environment and the sustainability of the fashion industry today. I have worked with eco-friendly fabrics such as Hemp as well organic and natural fibres. I love to experiment with making my own natural dyes, using flowers, leaves, spices...anything I can get my hands and mix into a vibrant natural dye! I can't wait to bring my workshops to SewLove and share some sustainable sewing secrets with fellow crafters!
