Would you like to write for #SewcialistsLoveMMMay ?

On Tuesday we announced out theme for May: #SewcialistsLoveMMMay !

Today we are looking for three volunteers who would like to write a post about one of the following topics: 

  • your current or past experience participating in Me-Made May OR why you’ve never participated in Me-Made May
  • tips/tutorials for refashioning RTW or me-made garments so they get more use
  • slow sewing one garment your wardrobe really needs
  • Do you aim for a 100% me-made wardrobe, or how much me-made is “enough”?

Posts will be due May 1st, and once you are chosen, we’ll discuss the process. We always pick first-come, first-served, with a priority on people who haven’t written for us already this year. We’ll be posting on Instagram at 7pm EST for three volunteers there!

To volunteer, comment and tell us which of the topics you would like to write about!

Thanks!

  1. I would love to contribute to the MeMadeMay theme! It’s my first time participating, and at the moment I’m assessing my wardrobe, taking stock of what I need and what I want. I did contribute to the #sewstripes theme though, so understand that you’re looking for new people. I’ll be following the posts with interest, looking for inspiration!

    1. Thank you! To give more people a chance to contribute, we are saving the spots for new contributors… but we’ll give you a shout if we end up with a open spot! I hope you enjoy doing Me Made May!!!

        1. 😄 Always worth a try! If you are abt to write more often, you could join the Facebook planning group… or hit us up in one of the next challenges!

  2. This is the first year that I will be participating in MeMadeMay. I am a self-taught sewer and designer and I’m writing about my projects in my blog, that has a focus on slow fashion and sustainability. I’d love to write about why I’m participating this year and about the preparations for it. xxx

  3. I can write about how me made may gave me the courage to wear my handmade clothes to work ( in my new job, after a bad experience with handmade clothes at my old job) if you’d like.

    1. That sounds like a really interesting post! I’m trying to remember when you last wrote for us – was it more than 6 months ago?

  4. I would like to give it a go ! I have participated in MMM since 2013, and it really jumpstarted an existing skill I had, so I would write about my current and past participation.

  5. We’ve got our three volunteers now, folks – but if you really want to write for us, we’ll be requesting 3 more authors via Instagram at 7pm EST tonight! 🙂

  6. Hi! I’d love to write about slow sewing as it’s something I’m now trying to do more. I’m trying to be more mindful with my sewing. I’ve recently made a parka coat and some shirts which my wardrobe really needed.

    1. Thanks Rach! We’ve got our three authors for now, but we’ll be asking for three more on IG tonight. Check at 7pm EST!
