I’m happy to announce a fun sewing challenge that we’ve planned for 2018!
Our editor and contributor team have designed the Curvy Year of Sewing to build community and challenge each other to create items coinciding with bi-monthly sewing prompts. With each prompt there will be pattern suggestions as well as pattern reviews and inspiration on the CSC blog. Use this year long challenge to motivate you to sew, fill in empty spots in your closet or create a capsule wardrobe. You can join in and sew all year or just sew along with the bi-monthly categories that interest you. We’ve tried to be thoughtful and inclusive with this challenge and welcome anyone who wishes to participate.
What is it?
The #CurvyYearofSewing is a year long sewing challenge with bi-monthly sewing prompts. You can sew your choice of pattern as long as it fits in with the category.
How can I participate?
Sew a garment (or accessory) that fits the theme for each two month period and share what you’ve sewn by the end of the second month using the hashtag #CurvyYearofSewing on Instagram or in our CSC Community Group on Facebook.
Do I have to sew a specific pattern?
No. You can sew any pattern that you wish as long as it fits into the garment type for each bi-monthly period.
Are there prizes?
Yes! Throughout 2018 we will have prizes and discounts for those who are participating in #CurvyYearofSewing! Winners will be randomly drawn after each bi-monthly sewing prompt is over (usually within a week after the last day of the bi-monthly period). To be eligible to win a prize, you must sew a garment that fits within the pattern category and share it on IG or in our FB group before the last day of the bi-monthly period using the hashtag #CurvyYearofSewing. We will announce prizes and sponsors as the year progresses. (If you would like to sponsor a prize or offer a discount code, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
