It's Sewing Indie Month!

Today is September 1st, which marks the start of Sewing Indie Month, a month-long celebration of indie sewing patterns where designers collaborate to bring you fun blog posts and informative tutorials. It's accompanied by a sew-along contest with fantastic prizes.

All month, participating designers will be posting tutorials and interviews. I'm super proud to be kicking off the month today with a Ginger jean skirt tutorial over at Closet Case Files!

Sewing Indie Month HQ will be the Sew Independent site, where you can keep up to date with the latest SIM news.

But wait, there's more! We'll be doing another bundle sale including up to 10 patterns by amazing indie designers.

The sale will run from Tuesday September 1st through Thursday September 10th.

Just like the last bundle, you choose the price you want to pay. The more you pay, the more rewards you'll receive. 20% of bundle proceeds will be donated to Women for Women, which helps women dealing with violence, marginalization, and poverty due to war and conflict.

This bundle features two brand new patterns: The Kinga Skirt by Kate & Rose and the April 1962 Coat by SomaPatterns. During the sale you can only buy them as part of the bundle. 

But that's not all...

We're also hosting a sew along contest for all of the patterns included in both bundles! There are fabulous prizes to be won in 3 categories
