Sewing Machine Friday!


On a busy Friday morning, head designer Jenn spent some time with Kayte who is in the industrial design program at Humber College and is currently working on her thesis.  She was interested in Jenn's thoughts on sustainability and the environment as well as the sewing machine.  At the Paper People studio we have several machines that help us through the day, including a machine Jenn's Mom received as a wedding present in the early 80s.


With so much waste and over abundance in the western world, Kayte is especially interested in creating a machine that will be more enticing for home sewers to use so that they can mend and alter their own clothes.


We are excited to hear about all of Kaytes endeveours as she tries to gain new perspectives on the pros and cons of current models and one day designs a machine that will truly stand the test of time!
