Do you miss The Sew Weekly?

Do you miss The Sew Weekly?

Having sewed on a common theme each week with Mena, Debi, Sarah and Veronica for an entire year in 2011 and being an avid follower of the blog in 2012, I was refreshing the blog’s home page in the beginning of 2013 when no updates came. That was totally unexpected.

I miss The Sew Weekly…

The tablecloth dresses

I miss sewing with the community on a common theme…

I miss seeing what everyone has created…

I miss all the inspiring works…

I miss the notion/pattern swaps…

and all the excitement!

And one day, I received an email from the lovely Debi asking some questions on a vintage pattern we swapped in 2011. We “spoke” about The Sew Weekly, how much we missed it and thought it would be great if we could sew based on a common theme again! Sarah and Veronica too were excited to sew as a group again! We can’t wait!


And we would like to extend the invitation for you to sew with us in The Sew Weekly Reunion! Everyone and anyone can join! There is no project that’s too big or too small. Come sew with us!
