Editor’s note: Several discussions have come up in the Facebook group lately about how fun it would be to have a holiday sewing challenge… and we’re thrilled that group member Kat has stepped up to organise it!
You are cordially invited to A Very Curvy Sewing Celebration!
The Curvy Sewing Collective Community is like no other Facebook group I’ve ever found. It’s inspirational. It’s welcoming. It’s JOYFUL. I would like to celebrate that with all of you by having a giant party!
The theme of the party is “Fabulous, Fun and Fearless”.
Here is the excuse you have been waiting for!!! Everyone who has ever said “Oh, I’d love to make this dress/jacket/blouse/skirt but I have nowhere to wear it”, this is your chance!!! Pick your dream pattern. Splash out and buy that gorgeous bit of fabric you stroke every time you visit the fabric store or pull out that special piece of material you’ve been hoarding away in your stash. Make something that you’d never normally make for yourself. Remember to be fabulous, fun and fearless in your choices! Then on Friday, January 13th or Saturday, January 14th, 2017, get all dolled up and glamorous and take a photo to post in the event page!
Beyond that, how you party is up to you. Perhaps you’ll get in contact with another member of the Curvy Sewing Collective Community (check this map to see if you have any CSC friends nearby http://j.mp/2a2rzUs) and meet up for lunch or dinner. If going out isn’t your thing, then you could put on your favourite movie (bonus points if it has costuming you can drool over and imagine sewing) and pretend to be at an elite private screening complete with your favourite snacks and bubbly!
Remember to visit the Curvy Sewing Collective Community Facebook page throughout the weekend to chat and ooh and aah over the pictures everyone is posting. We’ll be doing a roundup on the blog of the beautiful creations shared on the event page, so if you don’t want your image used just let us know when you post your photo.
If you’re anything like me, then planning and making your outfit is at least half the fun of a party. So be sure to keep in touch on the event page, sharing ideas and questions about what you’re going to sew and how you’re going to celebrate!
