I am so excited to share with you a new idea that I have for connecting with other passionate, lovers of fashion and sewing. I have created a new sewing group on Facebook. The foundation of the group is just that…FASHION and SEWING!
The group is called ThReD and Needles Sewing Group. It is a closed group created especially for those of you that want to share ideas, get inspired, and help each other get creative!
I am sure that you have questions already… so let me start answering:
1) How is this group different from other sewing groups?
The ThReD and Needles Sewing Group is not intended to compete with other sewing groups out there. This group is a collaborative group where the members can join in on fashion sewing inspiration. Members can post pictures of trends (colors, prints, silhouettes, looks) and together we decide what we are going to focus on each month. We post pictures of our progress, fabric, etc. You sew at your own pace. At the end of the month we reveal! The person that captured the inspiration the best will be featured in the group.
2) Why join?
It will be fun! To get insight from other fashion-sewing-istas! The news feed will be consistent, clean, and inspiring.
3) Do I have to participate each month?
No. We are just having fun! There are no commitments and did I mention it’s FREE…lol! It will be fun just to have you in the group offering feedback and suggestions!
4) When do we start?
NOW! Search ThReD and Needles Sewing Group on Facebook or CLICK HERE and select JOIN and I will accept your membership. It’s that easy!
5) What’s next?
Since the group is new and we are building members… I will go ahead and select the first challenge…a SHIRTDRESS! I just posted a shirtdress on my blog earlier this week that I purchased off-the-rack. I confessed that that was something that I have never actually made for myself. I want to make one now! Here is look board showing several variations of shirtdresses.
This is intended to be low – no pressure sewing! You can use any pattern or self-draft. It’s up to you! I hope that by now you realize that this group is just a little boost to get our creative juices flowing and our machines cranked up!
Sound interesting? I hope so! Let me know what you think! Or better yet, JOIN the group!
