Slow Clothing - A Guide to Sewing at Home: Home

This Resource Guide aims to build context around sewing and clothing production as a craft, and as a concept. It is not intended to be a "how-to" guide for sewing, but instead provides a way to contextualize and develop an already established practice. Contained within the three sections are a range of databases, websites, books, articles and journals which should act as a stepping stone in academic learning. They are by no means an exhaustive or comprehensive list of resources, and should instead facilitate further explorations elsewhere. Looking Backwards takes the user through a list of resources which help to contextualize sewing in history. Garment Construction Now provides resources which help to locate a sewing practice in contemporary times. In the final collection, Community, a number of resources are provided which help to locate specific sewing communities.
