Mostly self-taught, Emily has been sewing off and on since she was 12 years old, but started seriously applying herself to the craft about 10 years ago, and has since then designed and constructed costumes for cosplay, historical dress reenactment, and theatre productions. In 2019 she won Best Costume Design at the Theatre BC’s Fraser Valley Zone Festival for her designs for Chickens: The Musical. Her prized sewing possessions are sewing machines that have been passed on from both her grandmothers, plus a treadle powered Singer from the early 1900’s that she recently acquired from her godmother and godfather.
