Meet Makers Who Just Happen to be D/FW Men

The sewing community is made up of talents from all ages, sex, religions and races. In this post, I wanted you all to meet some talented men makers. We never want to assume that our readers and members are only women, to do that would exclude so much creativity!

First up, let me introduce you to a young talented designer. Terrance Williams. Terrance is originally from Maine, but is now making his home in the Dallas area. His website and instagram links are below. My interview with him discusses his fashion journey, and inspirations. Terrance’s advise to the sewing community is to be inclusive, open to different people, different ideas, different concepts. Also to be a voice in the community that is willing to teach sewing knowledge without regard for traditional sewing stereotypes. Catch the entire interview below or read about more men who sew.

Next up is Michael Waid, the costume director with Dallas Theater Center. He has an extensive education in the fields of fashion, design and costume history. In addition, he previously owned a custom sewing and fabric store in Midland. Michael would love for the sewing community not to assume that everyone is female. And wishes pattern companies offered men’s clothing patterns in current fashions. His advise on fashion is to show your artistic side. Create something unique to you that you couldn’t find in a clothing store.
