The Fold Line is an online creative community forum for makers in the craft world. A perfectly formed, unified home for quilters, embroiderers, fabric designers, dressmakers and toy makers. Join the community and you will be treated to fantastic bloggers, fabric designers, even a sewing patterns database at your disposal – and lots of other lovely things to add to your sewing arsenal.
Putting together likeminded people, sharing projects and helpful tips, this is a social networking platform with a punch.
When we first heard about this ‘new sewing community site’ we might be forgiven for feeling slightly uninspired at the prospect. Immediately on arrival however, it is clear that this isn’t just any old sewing blog. This community has been designed by makers, for makers; and this is possibly why it ticks every box for its members. Plus the site is – well, cool. Beautifully designed and super easy to navigate – a far cry from its often sickly-sweet counterparts. The Fold Line manages to feel fresh, modern, relevant and above all, accessible for people of all levels of skill.
Lead by a desire to unite the different kinds of sewers under one proverbial roof, The Fold Line has been dubbed ‘Facebook for sewers’. No mean feat, but so far so good!
Kate and Rachel are the brains behind The Fold Line and met while working at happening craft café Sew Over It in London. As well as being the force behind The Fold Line, the pair seem to be constantly involved in a myriad of exciting projects; Kate in millinery and creative marketing; Rachel in pattern-cutting, design and writing Sewing City Guides and her weekly sewing newsletter, The Sew Reporter. Having only officially launched the site this month, they have already established a solid community and an impressive following. Clearly they are doing something right!
“It’s all about sharing, showing and telling.”
As we march towards the cold months here in the UK and prepare to embark on many sewing projects for much needed blankets, gifts and seasonal decorations, this might be the most exciting time to up your creative game; and we can’t wait to see what The Fold Line have in store for us.
