We Need You!


If you're interested in contributing to Sewzine read on - everyone is welcome!


You don't need to have any special skills or experience just something to say and a passion to communicate with the sewing world. 

What we want

As long as it is related to making your own clothes we are looking for the following:

  • Well researched informative and/or entertaining articles 

  • Interviews with interesting folk 

  • How to guides with illustrated step by step instructions and images

  • Artwork and illustrations​

What we don't want

  • Reviews of individual products and events

  • Advertisements 

  • Previously published articles (including blog posts)

Reading the zine will give you a good idea of the style and types of article that you could submit. Before you commit to producing any content please drop us a line at We can then tell you if we are interested and send you some submission terms and guidelines.


We have two tiers of payment:

  • Non-attributed

You will not be attributed for the content you provide but will be paid at the current rate of 4 pence per word (articles are normally between 1000-2000 words). Additional payment is made for supporting images by arrangement (between £2.00 - £5.00 each).

  • Attributed

Your work is provided to us for free in exchange for a quarter page bio which can be used to promote you or your business. Please note, this should not be a generic advert, rather an interesting insight into you as a sewer, or an aspect of your business that readers may find interesting.

Please get in touch - the more contributers we get the more often we can publish an issue!
