Do you ever wonder how and when the Sewcialists started?
It might surprise you that it all began in 2013! We ran theme months for a few years, then went on hiatus. Last June, I announced that we were relaunching, which makes this month the one-year anniversary of our reboot. We’ve gone from 150 followers on Instagram to 9000, and we couldn’t have done it without you.
This month, we’ll be be talking a bit more about our history and how we got here – and asking you where we should go next!
In the mean time, you might enjoy listening to me talk about the Sewcialists on a few podcasts from the past year:
This week I was on the Crafty Planner podcast, talking about why I thought the sewing world needed a blog like the Sewcialists where everyone was represented, and how sewing has helped my own self-confidence. We talk bramaking, plus-size sewing, photography, and much more!
I was on the Love To Sew podcast last fall, and we’re recording a little update interview soon! This was recorded just a couple of month into our relaunch, and the episode really helped our community grow. If you want to know how being a teacher in real life affects my take on the Sewcialists mission, listen to this episode!
I’d love to hear from you – When did you first hear about the Sewcialists? Are you an original member, or new to the fold?
I just stumbled upon it and fell in love with its uniqueness! You can find anything here!
I came across this blog a few months ago. It’s been a good read.
I’m very new! I have only just started using Instagram every day, and you know how it goes–you tug on one thread, so to speak, and suddenly there is a whole new world!
I am a self taught Sewist/designer of 72 and would love to be part of this group please.
