Classes, conventions and conferences inspire you for a couple of days, but are over quickly, cost hundreds of dollars and require lots of travelling time. 

College courses cost tens of thousands of dollars and only cover the basics of the craft - with minimal actual sewing.

Members of Foundations Revealed use all our resources, whenever and wherever you wish, at your own pace, for a small, affordable contribution of $14.97 per month, supporting our hardworking mentors, teachers and admin team. (Cancel any time.)

We are committed to helping YOUR hands do justice to the ideas that dance in your head, because if you succeed, there will be more beautiful, skilled slow fashion in the world - and that means we ALL succeed.
