The start of another year - and the time for new sewing beginnings and sewing resolutions.
Joining a sew-a-long is a good way to cement your sewing resolutions. Some of you are experienced sewers, some of you are new to sewing - it really doesn't matter where you sit on the sewing spectrum - the main objective here is to encourage you all to sew - which is why the goal of a garment a month. Even in busy lives, a few minutes a day will produce a gorgeous new garment by the end of the month.
If you are time stressed, choose something simple so that you at least get a sense of achievement for yourself at the end of the month.
Or if you bite off a little more than you can chew, or something untoward happens, or you get sick, just tell us at the end of the month, and finish the garment the following month.
Some challenges that run from month to month have a monthly theme - usually in a concrete form, like "Party Frock", "Garment from Natural Fibres", "Something Red", and so on. In this challenge, you are responsible for setting your own garment goals to suit your own needs, but I thought it would be fun to set up a theme every month. So, our theme for January is to think about how a new sewing beginning this year. Do blog about it here, so we can all have a bit of fun with this idea. You can also take this theme and extend on it on your own personal blog in any way you like.
Just a reminder to those of you who have haven't looked or to those of you who are new to this blog - the rules of the challenge can be found here.
Have a great New Sewing Year everyone, and best wishes to you all...
