Monday 14 September: In October, the Australian Sewing Guild (ASG) wants to see what is being produced in sewing rooms around the nation. Every Monday, post a picture in social media (Facebook or Instagram) of one of your creations, using two hashtags – #MeMadeMonday and #AustralianSewingGuild.
There are 4 Mondays in October so the ASG wants to see what is being produced in sewing rooms around the nation. Every Monday, post a picture in social media (Facebook or Instagram) of one of your creations, using two hashtags – #MeMadeMonday and #AustralianSewingGuild
The hashtags will enable us to search for your pictures and compile an album. Add a short description including information such as what pattern you used, type of fabric, special techniques employed, challenges faced, etc. Garments, quilts, patchwork, applique, handbags, embroidery – we want to see it all!
‘There are only 2 rules:
1 Some form of sewing must be used – machine, overlocker, hand-stitching.
2 The item must be made my you.
Please don’t post someone else’s work. Don’t be shy. This is your chance to show off and brag.’
from, Louise Sparrow Chair, ASG Board of Directors
For anyone that hasn’t been involved in the yearly #memademay, the podcast we published earlier this year has been edited so you can hear how #Memademay gives sewists the opportunity to show their makes everyday in May.
ASG wants to give you a taste of showing your makes especially if you’ve never taken part in #Memademay. Many ASG members have taken to social media this year to feel less isolated and ASG is encouraging you to give this challenge a go with the sewing you’ve done this year and want to celebrate their completed projects – and their style – with the sewing community.
Series 3 Episode 5: Zoe talked about patterns that excite her and has a special message for sewists who were thinking about taking part in #memademay2020. This podcast has been rebooted to give Australian Sewing Guild members background to what me mades are all about.
One of the fun things about Memademay is that you can explore your style and the style of others for free. You can also be brave and ask for feedback about your sewing projects and your style.
Yes, be brave and use October to learn more about your sewing and your style.
Oh and of course, we do tend to share where to find great fabrics and notions as well.
