In the United States, Mental Health Awareness month is celebrated in May. In this week's episode, we will be chatting with Filipino-American seamstress, pattern designer, fiber artist and DIY maker Angelica from @Angelica_Creates.
Angelica is also an avid mental health advocate in the sewing community, who recently hosted a 12-hour making marathon to raise awareness for World Bipolar Day and fundraiser for four mental health charities. We'll be chatting with her about her sewing experience, being a mental health advocate within the sewing community, and as a member of the Asian community, as well as the launch of her first pattern, the Melanie Wrap Skirt.
