Friday 11 March 2022: Celebrate SewOver50 reaching 40,000 followers this weekend with a fun contest.
SewOver50 on Instagram has gone from their humble beginnings in August 2018 when Judith (@JudithRosalind the founder) asked “is there a need for a group for older sewists? to now being the largest active sewing community on Instagram. In the words of Helen Reddy, we’re “in numbers too big to ignore!”
On the SewOver50 post published on Friday 11 March 2022 UK time, describe your “sewing style” in three descriptors in the comments.
One entry per person.
This is a fun contest that ends at midnight Sunday 13 March 2022.
Everyone can enter because SewOver50 intersects with all communities. Whether you have a private or public account, you can add your entry on the Friday 11 March 2022 post.
What some more fun?
ALSO: Join us for a LIVE on Friday at 7.30pm GMT 🇬🇧 where we dip our toes into live-streaming for the first time! All you have to do is be on Instagram and get involved with the conversaion between Judith and Sandy on the SewOver50 account.
We’ve asked a few of our followers to send us their descriptors to have a bit of fun and you can see who we have chosen! 🎉 🎤 Fingers crossed 🤞 and see you there.
Let’s celebrate together with a fun weekend challenge. We have some lovely sponsors for our random prizes too!
- ANYONE can enter (all ages).
- One entry only in the comments below Friday’s post (11 March 2022).

Show your personal support by sharing your sewing style descriptors in a post or story on your Instagram account and let everyone know that being SewOver50 does not mean invisible.
