Welcome to our new Sewcialist Blog! Over the last year, the idea of a “sewcialist” has grown from a series of tweets to an active worldwide community! Our central hub over at sewcialists.org has our customizable logo and the amazing Firehose showing posts from all kinds of Sewcialist blogs. Over on Flickr, we’ve got monthly sewing challenges going on. The only thing we’ve been missing is a central blog to talk about it all!
To start off, we’re going to keep the blog simple, with posts about upcoming sewalongs and round-ups of finished challenges. As things develop… well, who knows where we’ll end up?
Our goal is to build community and make everyone feel welcome. So if you’d like to write a post, just let us know in a comment! You can also tweet @sewcialists, leave a message in the Flickr group, or talk to Leila, Heather, tech-genius/sewist Joost, or myself!
Thanks for joining us!
Dear Reader: Our goal is to build community and make everyone feel welcome. We support crafting as an inclusive and welcoming space for people of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders, orientations and sizes. Regarding sewing challenge themes, we ask that you take each challenge as you see it fitting in your life, and express your involvement how you like, at the given time. Our challenges are for the pure enjoyment of participation and the love of community. Extended Mission Page Here.
