All Access

Everyone gets up in the morning and puts on clothes. Clothing is a huge part of our identities, a way of expressing ourselves. What we wear has the power to make us feel incredible or invisible, comfortable, or in pain, stylish, or drab.

Welcome to the home of accessible sewing. Everything you need to build your accessible sewing kit and make your craft work for you. From shears to pins and everything in between.

Everything we offer has been hand selected by us, making sure that every tool and item can help make sewing more accessible and pleasurable for all, whatever our ability, skill, or challenge. As long as you love to sew, we’re here to help make your dreams a reality. 

Becky is late-diagnosed Autistic and ADHD and a professional dressmaker and pattern cutter. All Access Sewing was born out of the frustration and impatience Becky felt at how her clothes never felt quite right on her body. Learn more about Becky and her journey.

“I want others to experience the empowerment of creating a safe and accessible wardrobe like I have done, and feel incredibly passionately about the message this book brings. Now is absolutely the right time for this revolution in sewing.”

A great book
“It’s a great book to make life easier especially if you have a disability.”
- Julie Hallam
A brilliant resource
“This book has given me so many fantastic ideas about how I can make my sewing hobby more accessible to me as well as how to adapt my clothes to suit my needs. As a sewist with an energy-limiting illness, I love that each project indicates the effort level required so you can judge whether or not to tackle it on any given day. Its such a brilliant resource and one I will turn to time and time again.”
