The Sew Weekly Reunion

because we missed it…

The Sew Weekly Reunion: Join Us!


Hello there!

We are Debi, Adey, Sarah and Veronica, the first batch of Sew Weekly contributors in 2011. Together with Mena Trott of The Sew Weekly (TSW), we sewed for 52 weeks based on a particular weekly theme. You might have sewn with us too, as we met many amazing sewists who encouraged us and kept us going throughout our year-long journey with TSW! We loved the experience so much that we didn’t hesitate coming together again in 2012 for the Mad Men themed challenge.

Or you might be one of the over 130 contributors sewing along each week in 2012. You were absolutely amazing and we loved  how involved everyone was!

While, we wished we could, we are not able to bring TSW back.

Short on sewing time, missing The Sew Weekly and the joy of sewing together, we have decided to do a reunion yearly just to sew a common theme together.

And, we’ll love it if you could join us!

The Reunion

Debi, Adey, Sarah and Veronica are hosting a reunion.

The timeline:

1) Announcement of sewing theme- 1 August 2013

2) Deadline

Email us by 1 September:

a) A photo of you wearing the garment that you made for the theme challenge

b) A link to your blog post  (preferably done in traditional TSW style) or a link to your flickr upload (see flickr group link below)

c) Email and we will respond with a confirmation within three days if we have received your email.

d) The Big Reveal will take place first week of September.

Join us, if you simply love to sew, love a good challenge, loved The Sew Weekly  or if you missed it too! Anyone and everyone are welcomed to join!

Do you miss the Sew Weekly?  

We certainly do!

Please leave us a comment if you are keen to join us, we’d love to hear from you! Or you can subscribe to the blog for updates. We’ll be adding a link to every participant’s blog so please leave your blog address with your comment:) There is also a flickr group for everyone to share photos of their creations and discuss issues for The Sew Weekly Reunion.  Grab a button for your sidebar, and invite your friends to sew along!

    Can’t find my comment, so to reiterate – I’m in. I have missed the weekly deadlines (not that I always got done in time anyroad). Cheers to all and lovely to see familiar faces who have also missed Sew Weekly.

    Yay for colours! Being relatively new to sewing, I hesitated for quite a while to join the challenge as the ladies hosting it might have gone for something complicated. But coloura – even I could do that! I’m hereby in!
