the return of Selfish Sewing Week is imminent!! on april 28, this week-long celebration of making for ourselves will commence!
that’s right, there’s even have a fancy new logo to celebrate! I couldn’t resist… I’m so excited about seeing what everyone makes, and I have big plans myself. in addition,there will be featured stitchers reviewing some great indie patterns, and there will be an amazing pattern giveaway, so you don’t want to miss it.
a huge thank you goes out to the Selfish Sewing Week sponsors… aurifil, Girl Charlee, and Hawthorne Threads! I happen to adore all of them to begin with, and their support of SSW is icing on the cake :)
I am so proud to announce that SSW will now be hosted on Kollabora. (cue bells, whistles, and confetti!!) Kollabora is a community for makers, and the site aims to “unite makers, crafters, and DIY enthusiasts of all skill levels to get inspired, share projects, buy and sell PDF patterns, and connect with each other and their favorite brands.” basically, it’s a fabulous place to share and to be inspired, and we’re over the moon excited to partner with them!
so, if you’re not already on Kollabora, get yourself familiar with the site and follow along here for all of the Selfish Sewing Week updates. when you share your SSW projects, make sure to include the Selfish Sewing Week event in the “inspired by” section of your project so that it shows up in the event feed.
just like that, easy peasy! now all you need to do is think about what you’ll make first. at the top of my list is a queen sized quilt for MY bed. ok, mr. gnats can use it too ;) i’ve been saying i’d make one for a few years now, and the time has come to just make it. no more excuses!
what’s on your selfish sewing list?
