The most rewarding aspect of being a part of the online sewing community is having the opportunity to 'meet' fellow sewists from all over the globe who share the same love for creating handmade clothing. It's an amazing experience to hear from all of you and to connect with other bloggers who experience the same excitement when a package of fabric arrives, and when you try a garment on your child that you've made and it fits just perfectly! You know the feeling!
Combining my fascination with world cultures and my love for sewing, I have decided to host a sewing series that celebrates sewing for children around the world called Roots. An incredibly talented group of ladies representing twelve different countries and five continents will be sharing original outfits inspired by their backgrounds each weekday from January 13 to 31. Not only will this be a showcase of amazing sewing skills and creativity, but also rich cultural experience, exploring heritage worldwide.
Didn't I tell you this was a talented group?! It is such an honour to have each one of them participating.
And speaking of participation, I just couldn't host something like this and not include you! So, in addition to these wonderful ladies sharing their looks, there will also be a Sew-Along for everyone, everywhere who wants to sew something for the child(ren) in their lives, inspired by their cultural Roots. From January 3 to 31, you can upload your outfit to the Sew Along Link Up and show the world your cultural creation.
Now, let's add even more fun to this series: how about some PRIZES?! Reaching out to amazing shops and designers, I've been overwhelmed by enthusiasm over this event. On January 3, the prize packages for the Roots sewing series will be revealed, and believe me, these sponsors are incredible AND generous! I may have to give some hints before then, because I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long to tell you because it's just too exciting!!
So, what do you think? Are you excited, too? Are you going to Sew-Along? If so, feel free to use the button below and spread the word! I would love for you to be a part of this big event!
