Hello hello! Want to know what’s happening in the sewing world this June? Here’s the ones I know about.
First up, the biggest one – it’s Indie Pattern Month over on The Monthly Stitch! It’s the third year that Indie Pattern Month has been running, and it’s already in full swing (since I’m a few days late getting this post up – whoops!). As usual, it’s a month-long celebration of indie patterns, with people sharing their makes. There’s also interviews with designers, and a few discount codes just in case you want to buy a new pattern or two (or three, or four.. *cough cough whoops!*) to make up.
Just like last year, there are also contests running with it, with some great prizes up for grabs. The four categories this June are: Dresses, Separates, New To Me, and One Pattern Two Takes. You can find out all the details and rules over here. Prize posts can be found here (Dresses contest), here (Separates), here (New To Me) and here (One Pattern Two Takes contest).
Speaking of indie patterns, there’s a sew along currently happening for the latest Grainline Studio pattern – the Morris blazer. Even if you’re not going to be sewing along, it promises to be a great resource for future makes.
Conveniently (since the Morris blazer can be made in firm knits, such as ponte) the Stashbusting Sewalong theme this month is knits. (Yep, you can participate in this, the Grainline Morris sew along, and Indie Pattern Month, all with one garment!)
The Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge continues, encouraging everyone to use those pretty, pretty vintage patterns that are in our stashes.
As always, if you know of any that are happening that I’ve missed out, I’d love to hear about them! And there’s the master list over here, of all upcoming sew alongs and events that I’ve heard about.
Are you planning on taking part in any of the sew alongs or sewing contests this month?
