Sew Over It

Lisa Comfort set up Sew Over It in May 2011 with one main aim – to teach as many people as possible how to sew!

She fell in love with sewing aged 11 when she made her first skirt. A year later her parents gave her a sewing machine and she have never looked back. Despite being teased for her “uncool” hobby, she persevered and carried on sewing. After studying at the London College of Fashion she worked for British designer Bruce Oldfield and then bridal couture designer Phillipa Lepley.

Lisa set up Sew Over It in a response to the growing feeling that sewing was becoming a lost skill. She hopes that she can pass on her passion for sewing through Sew Over It and encourage more people in London and around the world to pick up a needle and thread!
