A “SEW ALONG” THREAD For Sewing Enthusiasts/Tailors/Fashion Designers:DECEMBER by onnari(f): 12:31pm On Apr 29, 2013
I'm so excited to announce this Sew Along exercise coming up soon!

First of all, A Sew-Along is a long - distance meet-up for sewing. Irrespective of location,we all make an outfit together and best thing is, it's freeee!

HOW:
1. A piece would be chosen after being generally agreed upon i.e. we might have to use a majority vote type of thing.

2. Fabrics and necessary notions would be specified

3. A detailed schedule would be published for easy reference

4. Posts would be brief to avoid overloads

5 Photos/links of participants’ fabrics as well as work –in-process and finished projects would be published

6 Myself as well other participants would be on hand to assist whoever gets ‘stuck’

WHEN:
A date hasn’t been fixed as this would also be generally agreed upon, however as soon as entries have been organized, the date would be announced a week before.

WHERE:
Wherever you choose! As it would be an online meet up.

WHAT:
So far I’ve gotten requests for Ankara dresses and skirts, so if you have a particular piece in mind, fell free to drop
a line/photo as we aren’t using a pattern (buying or mailing patterns here in Naija isn’t a walk in the park!) So go through your favourite designers ( Jewel By Lisa has been brought up more than once), and mail me your requests so we can reach a conclusion!

As you already know, a photograph would need to be posted of our intended project.

Email
: thatssewnaija@gmail.com

WHO:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced ‘sewers’ – whether you sew for a living or just for fun, you’re welcome, this is just a fun experience and an opportunity to learn from each other.

Further info would be communicated to you.

Hi onnari, I would love to join. Just recently got my sewing machine home and really need to get started. I've not sewn in over a year and would love to get back on track. I've got an ankara fabric and a couple old designs I may use.

Use a photo editing software(dr might be one on ur fone already), reduce the size (not cropping,I.e resizing from like 1MB down to below 100 or 80kb) n send via NL. For Nl d maximum u can send is like 200kb

Or you can go online, tiny pic I believe to get a URL for the photo and you can use the img code to post it inside your post.


@onnari, I will post the pics and fabric I will use as soon as I go home.

So here r tthe intended pieces for our sew along have been selected from amongst those mailed to me, I would be uploading them so you look through and possibly voice type out your preferred piece. When that's been done, I'll put up the schedule and we'll get this show on the road!
