It’s Sewing Indie Month!!!

May 8, 2014 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments



Guess what? Britex is a proud supporter of Sewing Indie Month happening right now! Sewing Indie Month is an online party with 21 independent sewing pattern designers and their best friends (that would be you)!

In the organizer's own words...

"Sewing Indie Month is all about making new friends and sewing great garments. See, when you’re an independent sewing pattern designer sometimes you really wish you could ask your fellow designers’ advice, or even just commiserate about how little sleep you get when there’s an error in one of your patterns. That can seem weird and presumptuous though, asking a stranger, a competing business owner, to chat about certain things they’d rather keep private. But that’s the great thing about being an indie designer, your fellow designers aren’t your competition, they’re your allies."

You won't want to miss the sewalongs lead by some mighty awesome bloggers (including our very own Guest Blogger Laura Mae). Sewalong themes and blogs follow:

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

The best part is that you can participate and win!


Here are links to all the participating companies’ blogs so you can keep up with the latest Sewing Indie Month posts.
