My name is Erin Gilday. I’m a fiber artist, crafts instructor and freelance writer from Portland, OR. I like to call myself a third generation crafter. Like my mom and my grandmother before me, I’ve been fascinated with the magic of making things all my life.
Though I’m constantly trying my hand at all kinds of new crafts, I am especially interested in fiber arts (sewing, knitting, crochet, felting, etc.) and sustainable crafting. My craft projects have appeared in Stitch, Sew News and Threads magazines. I’m currently teaching sewing workshops for Skillshare Studio in Portland and Oregon Country Fair’s Community Village in Veneta, OR. In addition to one-on-one instruction, I’ve also taught workshops for the Santa Cruz Inside-Out Writing Project and the UCSC Women’s Studies Department.
I started my DIY clothing business, Patchwork…
