Well it has been an exciting year of "saying NO to ready-to-wear!" I hope, like Natalea and I, you've been encouraged by your "me-made" experiences over the past 11 months.
The year has been a busy one for me! In addition to my sewing adventures, my first book was published this past summer, I returned to full time work outside the home, and my travel increased a great deal.
Lynn and Lisa for their jean tutorials. We also have links on our resources page. I also purchased Angela Wolf's Craftsy class on making jeans. I'm looking forward to using many of the techniques from it as well. I am quickly falling in love with knits, too! I don't think I would have ever tackled them if the challenge weren't in place.... I've been encouraged by your projects and the tips you've all shared.
As we begin a new season of "the challenge" beginning April 1, 2014, we now want to hear from you regarding your experiences:
- What did you learn about yourself and your sewing prowess?
- What projects or skills challenged you the most this past year?
- Will you continue to "sew your own?" Are there any specific sewing goals you have for the upcoming year?
- Are there any elements you would like to see added to the challenge?
Thank you again for joining us this year. It has been a great blessing to hear from you and to walk the journey with you! Blessings and love, Vita
