Keep up with the Sewing Challenges news

So, some of you may have noticed that I’ve been compiling a list of all the sewing challenges and meet-ups that I see, to keep ’em all in one handy place for anyone who’s looking for a challenge.

Waaaaay back in April (?!?! Where’s all that time gone?!?) the lovely Tempest suggested I make a button for the Sewing Challenges page, to help people remember where it is.

What can I say? Brilliant idea, but I’m not-so-good at designing things like buttons. *sad face*

Luckily the wonderful Melissa, clever designer that she is, came to my rescue, and has designed a super button! Yay!!!

So, here ’tis:

Sewing Challenges List

And if you need the code to put it into your blog, here’s that:

<div align="center"><a href="" title="SewingChallengesList"><img src="" alt="Sewing Challenges List" style="border:none;" width="180" height="180" /></a></div>


And just for fun, here’s a few of my favourites of the challenges that are happening (or about to happen) this month:

Sew Weekly Reunion The first Sew Weekly Reunion is happening! Yay!! The theme is the Pantone fall palette, entries are due in by the end of August, and will be featured on the Sew Weekly Reunion blog during September.




Monthly Stitch Cape Challenge New regular sewing challenge, The Monthly Stitch, is kicking off with a cape challenge for August. Just make a cape, and feature it on the site! (Not sure what to make? There are a few inspiration posts for your viewing pleasure.)



Sewcial Bee I’m pretty excited to see that there’s another Sewcial Bee happening this month, since I found out about the first one far too late! The theme is being announced this weekend – you then have 48 hours to make something to the theme and post it to the Flickr group.


So there we have it, folks. Three challenges to get you all inspired this weekend (and there are a bunch more over on the Sewing Challenges List page), and a button to help you find out about others in the future.

Know of any challenges / meet ups / etc happening? Let me know and I’ll add ’em to the list! 🙂
