About Me

Welcome to Sew Essentially Sew! My name is Graça and do I really need to say I enjoy sewing? When I'm not sewing you can find me in the kitchen, (latest hobby is making cheese), while avoiding that ever-growing mending pile. I'm not so crazy about mending.

I sew my own wardrobe, forth year on a ready-to-wear fast, clothes for my Mom, and I enjoy doing charity sewing as well.  Some of my sewing makes it onto my Etsy shop, Sew Essentially Sew.

Thanks for stopping by.  💋
