ABOUT FOUNDATIONS REVEALED
"I created Foundations Revealed to help us all work together to realise our wildest wardrobe dreams."
Since 2007, we have been helping aspiring costumers, historybounders, corsetieres and dressmakers around the world to live their best creative lives. Founder Cathy Hay and the Foundations Revealed team are passionate about helping makers to learn together, stay inspired and positive, maximise their skills and realise their sewing dreams.
Foundations Revealed is the work of a dedicated team, who are driven by a common mission to help our Stitchlings grow in both confidence and skill. Learn about our Founder, the Mentors who guide and nurture our Stitchlings and their work, and the team behind the scenes who ensure a smooth, friendly service.
Since 2007, over 100 skilled professionals and passionate amateur makers have contributed to our unparallelled library of articles and tutorials, giving our Stitchlings step-by-step guides to everything from bullet bras to Medieval bliauts, and from tailored corsets to Victorian walking suits. These are their stories.
