Welcome to Mister Domestic, an inclusive community where we spread joy & positivity through sewing & crafting.
Sewist, Crafter, Teacher, Speaker, Designer, Advocate, Firm Anti-Racist, LGBTQIA+, & (best of all) Helena’s Dad.
Hey friends! My name is Mathew Boudreaux, but most folks know me as Mister Domestic. I learned to sew as a kid, but the antiquated binary gender expectations of my parents got in the way, so I never really felt compelled to up my game. Shortly after out daughter Helena was born in 2013, my spouse bought me a couple sewing classes at Modern Domestic and then I took off like I was at the races. And with my kid as my muse and inspiration, the quality and coolness of the stuff I made far exceeded anything that I thought I’d ever be able to create with my own hands.
And that was what I thought the entirety of my story as a maker would become: me making cool stuff with my kid. But the social media powers-that-be combined with my desire to test out the knowledge I’d just acquired from my MBA at Portland State had a different idea. I’m a fabric & pattern designer, sewing instructor, owner of my new online sewing school SEW U, inspirational speaker, consultant, and global influencer with my TikTok, YouTube & Instagram each set to surpass over 100,000 this year. But hands down, my favorite thing about this journey is the truly inclusive Mister Domestic community that has been created by all of us. And everyone is legit welcome. Unless your happiness if based on the oppression of someone else, of course.
I’m open to any communication! Feel free to contact me any convenient way!
