July SewOver50 challenge: Colour blocking forces you to use bits of fabric. You are challenged to work within limited constraints. You may have precious fabric you really want to use.
This challenge allows you to use fabric that you really want to plough into with a definite plan. This is an open-ended challenge that is open to everyone.
Take part in the July challenge from Sewover50 – #SewColourBlocking #SewColorBlocking

What will your colours be? vibrant? monochromatic? tonal? subtle?
Tuesday 17 May 2022: Judy talks about her Op shopping rules.
She discusses her father’s influence to recycle resources and her role at Glowing Sky, as the company also has Judy’s values regarding resources.
Have a listen to the markers Judy sewed in the epic dress, she commenced sewing on the first day of lock down in New Zealand in 2020.
There were quite a few wee highlights Judy talks about in this podcast about the epic dress and her latest hexi coat. One wee highlight was Judy’s epic dress was in the top 9 for SewOver50 in 2021, next to Esme of Great British Sewing Bee. That really is an impressive accomplishment.
Keep an eye out for Judy’s next podcast where she runs through her op shopping rules. You’ll learn how Judy’s garment choices are guided by not adding to landfill but also ensuring clothes that are needed in the community, stay in circulation.
