Hi everyone! My name is Meg Healy and if you’re familiar with BurdaStyle.com then you know me as as their Editor, Instructor, and overall Sewing Enthusiast with a giant rabbit… And if you don’t know me, you can read on to find out how my sewing journey began and landed me my dream job!

Being self taught in sewing I went to Fanshawe College in London to acquire my Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design. Concluding the graduate runway exhibition, hosted in Museum London, I was selected to represent Ontario in the Skills Canada National Competition for apparel construction. My ambitions lead me to continue my studies in Fashion Design at Parsons The New School for Design in NYC. With 2 years industry experience in between, I proceeded to Parsons with confidence in my skill sets. Moving to New York City with aims of career development, I competitively acquired a leading pattern making internship at Vera Wang. Simultaneously I also obtained an editorial internship with the international sewing pattern company BurdaStyle. Encouraged to accept a full-time position, I left Parsons and Vera Wang to pursue my career with BurdaStyle, where I am now the face of and lead educator. I’m also a regular sewing contributor on MarthaStewart.com and columnist for Sew News Magazine.

Outside of work within the past couple years I have acted as a lead designer towards the development of a large-scale textile installation at the first ever Way Home Arts & Music Festival. That eventually lead to further fabrications for the VSVSVS gallery on two separate occasions.
