Searching for Ambitious Folks
In thinking about The Sew Weekly 2011, I've realized that the community is going to be a much bigger component of my sewing mission. As part of this, I'm hoping to add a few other contributors to The Sew Weekly. If you're interested, here's what I'll ask of you:
- Starting the first week of January, sew at least one garment once a week for a year*
- Write one weekly post documenting the dress (just the results, not the construction)
- Have a strong voice
- Do it for the love of sewing and blogging (in other words, there's no money involved)
While you don't have to sew all vintage, an emphasis on making use of vintage fabrics, patterns, notions is always more than encouraged. Most importantly, you don't have to be an expert seamstress. In fact, if you're learning, that's even better! You should just feel comfortable assuming you can complete one garment a week.
If you're interested, please contact me over here. Please provide a link to your current blog (if you have one) or any other writings (Burdastyle, Pattern Review, Etc…)
* This may be too ambitious for most folks. Obviously, I think it's doable. Another option would be to commit to once a week for a month and then I'll rotate different authors. We'll figure this out.
