Happy Tribute Month!
For the month of August, we’re asking Sewcialists around the world to get inspired by their favourite online sewists: bloggers, bloggers, Instagrammers, podcasters, and more! It’s a chance to let other Sewcialists know they inspire you, and also to add a bit of their flare to your own wardrobe!
The “rules” are wide open, so interpret the challenge in your own way. You could:
- Copy a project exactly
- Try a pattern or technique someone else used
- Imagine what your favourite Sewcialist would do with a piece of fabric
- Push yourself out of your style comfort zone or make some awesome basics to fill in wardrobe gaps
Easy, right? Post your finished project on your blog or social media, and be sure to tag us #tributemonthsewing #sewcialists @sewcialists. At the end of August, we’ll include all the finish projects tagged #tributemonthsewing on Instagram in our final round-up! (If you aren’t on IG, you can email us a picture or link to your project instead.)
We’ve got a few more inspiration posts lined up for the first week of August, and then we’ll be posting finished tribute Month projects from a great line-up of Sewcialists. We hope you enjoy and have fun joining in!

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.
