Announcing Sewing Indie Month! (& Some Giveaways!)


If you follow some of the other indie pattern blogs, you might have heard that starting today, it's officially Sewing Indie Month! What is that you say? Well, with Mari from Seamster Patterns at the helm, a bunch of indie sewing pattern companies (myself included) have teamed up for a whole month-long celebration of the indie pattern scene! I remember only a handful of years ago when there were hardly any indie patterns, and now look at us! So many to choose from! So it is indeed a situation worthy of celebrating!

What is coming for this month? All the the amazing participants will be posting tutorials and interviews on each other's sites, so you can get to know each of us better and see how we all work with each other's designs! In addition, some lovely bloggers are hosting sewalongs (including MAJOR prizes) as well! Check out their sewalong categories and sites below:

an Indie Love Affair, Wanett of Sown Brooklyn
Dressed to the Nines, Laura of Lilacs and Lace
Everyday Casual, Jenny of Cashmerette
Pattern Hacking, Rhonda of Rhonda's Creative Life

Oh, and did someone say prizes? Heck yeah! There are a TON of prizes up for grabs, so click here to read all about the prizes from the most amazing donors. There are over $1000 in prizes! So read on how you can participate and win! And of course, be generally inspired by all the fellow indie pattern designers.
