It’s been two years since the Sewcialists blog was active… but we’re back in action!
And by “we”, I mean me, Gillian, and YOU. I blog about my personal sewing at craftingarainbow.wordpress.com, but my goal here is to facilitate a space where anyone can contribute, regardless of experience, age, size, or background.
The Sewcialists blog has always been a group blog representing diverse voices. Since the blog launched in 2013, we’ve had 25 different authors and counting!
The focus of the Sewcialist blog is theme months – the sillier, the better! There are already lots of well-structured, practical and reflective sewing challenges out there, but our challenges aim to be fun, open-ended, and easy to join in. We’ve already hosted 12 different theme months challenges, including Oonapalooza, Scraptember, Red October, and Lingerie Month. We’ve sewn Viking clothes and Disney-inspired everyday wear, and a Tribute Month where we got inspired by our favourite Sewcialists’ style!
Moving forward, the goal will be to host 4 theme months per year. The next theme month will be announced soon, so follow us here and on Instagram to stay tuned!
In the mean time, I’d love to know: Do you remember any of the old theme month challenges? Which was your favourite, and did you ever contribute a post?
