Recently, on a sunny afternoon in Wellington, some lovely ladies meet for sushi on the grass at Midland park. They discussed work, life…and of course sewing. And they also schemed…about sew alongs…many, many sew alongs 😉
One of these schemings came about after a discussion regarding how many Burda mags some of us own vs. how many patterns we have actually sewn from them…are you with me?
So, this quick post is your heads up.
During May the Wellington Sewing Blogger Network is encouraging you to join us in our (hopefully annual) Burda Magazine sew along.
Yep that’s right, for the month of May, participating bloggers sign up to sew at least one item, or more, from a Burda magazine in their possession*.
Never sewn from a Burda Magazine before? Now is your perfect chance. Between us we’ll be posting some helpful tutorials to help you sew along with us. From seam allowance help to scary pattern layout sheets and demystifying those crazy instructions (and whatever else we can think of) we’ll be here for you!
Never done a sew along before? Guess what? Me neither! But this a great first one to try because you can pretty much sew anything you like, it doesn’t even matter what season it is where you live. Plus the entire Burda magazine catalogue is your oyster, waaaay back to the 1950s!
So are you in? Great! Head on over to Kat’s sign up/participants page, grab the badge above and start your scheming!
