Hi All,

As promised, I have created a forum for a monthly sewing challenge. The goal is to encourage those who want to participate to complete one garment or accessories item for their wardrobes per month. I, too, am in great need of new clothes and plan to commit to at least one garment per month. I have created additional threads in this forum for tips and tricks to help us sew faster and smarter as well as a place to record our goals and successes.

Anyone is welcome to join the challenge. There is no test or homework and no sewing police just encouragement to do that thing that we all love most. If you wish to follow along and be notified of posts to this forum, go to your Control Panel and add this forum to your email notifications.

The rules for the challenge are simple!

1. Have fun.
2. Enjoy yourself.
3. No stress, pressure, or apologies.
4. Remember sewing is our passion and joy.
5. Try at least one new sewing or pattern making technique.

How do I do this? "If you wish to follow along and be notified of posts to this forum, go to your Control Panel and add this forum to your email notifications." I am usually computer literate, but I can't figure this out.

I know where the forum control panel is. I couldn't figure out how to "add the forum to my email notifications." I know it should be simple, but am having trouble with simple this morning.

Under All Things Sewing, the only two forums that show up on my screen are, "Men Who Sew" and "Sewing As a Business".

And, finding where to click for the forums was simple. Just didn't see it.

Ah--- I thought it was me! This morning came far too early and I tried to do this on my way out the door.  Well OK, so that was my first mistake---.

What great rules. I think I should adopt them for my life rules. Thanks for putting things in perspective, Lisa.

No problem. I only want to have fun with this. Been thinking all day about what to sew first. Spent the weekend organizing my sewing room finally so I can get down to business later this week.

For all of you old timers out there (myself included), Paul and I went to a Loggins and Messina concert tonight at a small vineyard just south of Nashville owned by Kix Brooks of Brooks and Dunne fame. It was really great fun and great music. I had forgotten that Jim Messina founded Poco and Buffalo Springfield. Made me feel a bit older.

I remembered one of the very first items I ever sewed for myself in the late 60s or early 70s was a jeans jacket. I hand embroidered daisies all over it and added macrame' fringe. I was ever so proud. I have some really nice soft denim. I am thinking about recreating my jacket (with machine embroidery this time though). One of the recent Project Runway contestants added macrame to their garment. It was really pretty. I am thinking that might be my new technique to resurrect.

Lisa,

So...Your Mama Don't Dance? LOL What great music! I'm a Kenny Loggins music fan, too; he did some great solo stuff.

Can you describe your jeans jacket? I've really been wanting to make one; I gave mine away, it got too big, but I LOVE denim-type jackets. I'd like to make on that isn't actually a jeans-type; that style's not particularly flattering on my pear shape. I recall past conversations about styling a denim jacket for different body shapes, but I'm not sure it was here on the forum.

I did make DH a pair of PJ bottoms, and he says they fit. They must be comfortable, because he changes his PJ top, but it's a struggle to get the bottoms off him and into the laundry basket. I think that one thing he likes is having roomy pockets.

Other than that, it's been Chemo Hat Month and Renaissance Shirt month...and while I did figure out how to use TM for the shirt and made a draft, I actually just measured and cut. Hats...I often do use Wild Things and Wild Things Vintage, so that I can customize size and dimensions easily, but this time round I wanted to use a lengthways 3-piece crown with a tiny brim and ties in back...any hope of that type of crown being added?

Still have my planned knit tops to sew...keep trying to put them on, then remember they're not sewn up yet!

I have been working on fitting patterns for DD this weekend. I will be making the muslins to ship to her in FL for fitting. Lisa I am loving the DFP Book. It really does help explain the tools and the different ways things are done in PE. Makes things much easier. BTW, I am doing 3 pieces, pants, skirts and a jacket.

Thanks, Leighanna. I am glad you are enjoying the book!

The last posting to this forum appears to be 2009. Is this an ongoing challenge or has it stopped?
