Trick-or-treaters! It's @ezk137 and @whenitrainsitpours. They're grownups, so I gave them booze.

Sewvember

Sewvember
A few days ago, crumpet tweeted a link to Late Night Stitch Club. The site is one person’s personal project to sew every day in November. I replied to crumpet (and Dr K and JP) that I’d been toying with a similar idea… and maybe we could call it “Sewvember”? The idea was a big hit.

So what’s Sewvember? For me, I’m going to commit to sewing four pieces of clothing in November. That’s one a week! And I’m going to wear my own homemade creations whenever I can. Let’s bust some fabric stash and refresh our wardrobes, everyone! Feel free to join us and use the #sewvember hash tag for discussions.

Happy sewing!
