Welcome to 2018, Sewcialists! I hope your year is off to a wonderful start — or at least, you have dreams of fun sewing projects dancing through your head!
To get your creative juices flowing, why not join us in February for our next sewing theme: #SewStripes? It’s all about sewing stripes, which could be anything from a cute and easy Breton top to a pinstripe suit! Stripes offer all kinds of potential for directional layouts with strong graphic impact, but also work well in any basic pattern. We’ll be offering you some inspiration in January, and then jump into sharing community projects in February.
If you’d like to contribute a post, we’ll be putting out a call on Friday for four volunteer authors on the blog, and four more on Instagram. You can also participate by tagging your new stripy makes in February with #SewStripes on Instagram, and we’ll include them in our blog round-ups!
I’ve got some striped sweater knit calling my name — how about you? Tell us below what you might make this February!
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.
