Selfish Sewing Week Starts Now! |
It’s here folks. The time has arrived.  Ignore your to-do list, start rifling through your fabric stash, and saddle up to your sewing machine. The next seven days are all about sewing for yourself. This week is meant for working on whatever sewing project your heart desires, and putting off the selfless sewing until next week. You deserve it.
So what’s happening this week in the online sewing community? Well, a lot. Here’s the rundown.

Blog Posts, Galore

There will be several featured posts on both our blog and Imagine Gnats. A full blog tour is happening on many more stellar sewing blogs. Plus, there’s a great event page hosted by Kollabora for every selfish sewer (that’s you!) to upload what they made this week.





Selfish Sewing Week Challenge

But! There’s even more! In fact, there’s some serious sewing swag to be won. We’re talking a full leather hide, yards upon yards of fabric, gift cards and sewing patterns.
Selfish Sewing Week Challenge Prizes |
This morning, at 8am, the Selfish Sewing Week Challenge opened up for entries! Showcase your Selfish Sewing creations by uploading them to the challenge and be entered to win some amazing prizes. Every user can vote up to three times per day (only once per day for a specific entry). Entries can be added all week long.
