Cathy Hay is the founder of the award-winning sewing community Foundations Revealed, which has been helping costumers and historical dressmakers to connect, learn together, and realise their most ambitious sewing dreams since 2007.

With a weakness for old clothes – VERY old clothes – she loves to reverse engineer and recreate the clothing of the past, so that it can step out of the glass museum case and live again.

It’s about championing mental health through creativity, and rediscovering craftsmanship that doesn’t have to be lost in the past.
