Taylor McVay is a lifelong devotee to the craft of sewing, in practical as well as artistic forms. As a sewist and pattern maker, she has worked with both established and up-and-coming fashion designers, collaborated on wearables for internationally exhibiting artists, and created custom clothing for a range of clientele. Her sewing pattern company, Blueprints For Sewing, features designs inspired by architecture and art.
As an artist, Taylor develops interactive projects, lectures and workshops about many facets of fashion. She is a member of New Craft Artists in Action, an activist fiber arts collective, and was a co-founder of Howard Art Project (Dorchester), an art studio and gallery.
As a teacher, she has lectured and conducted workshops at universities as well as local businesses; she currently also teaches at JP Knit & Stitch and the Franklin Mill Store. She holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
“I view every job as a collaboration and love to work creatively with others. I also feel that educating people on how to make, care for and understand clothing is a valuable contribution to a healthy community.”
