It’s happening! Mari of Seamster Patterns contacted me a few months ago regarding a rad idea: Getting indie pattern designers together for a month of tutorials, interviews, sewalongs, contests, and giveaways! I immediately accepted the invitation to participate, no-brainer! There are 21 participants so every weekday during the month of May there is going to be new stuff happening!
There is a lot of information here so let’s dive right in! The participants are listed below. Here is a link to a calendar, outlining who is doing what (or just stay tuned–I’ll let you know!) I was fortunate enough to be teamed up with Dixie DIY, Waffle Patterns, Lolita Patterns, and Sew Caroline!
Regarding Sewalongs, Contests, and Prizes…
There are 4 sewalong categories hosted by separate bloggers–all with amazing prizes!
Below are the categories and contest rules:
Here are the prizes for each individual sewalong contest. I’m already jealous!

The winner of the Dressed to the Nines sewalong category will win the following fabulous prizes:

The winner of the Pattern Hacking sewalong category will receive the following prizes to help them on their next creative journey:
