HELLO and thank you for joining me here. I’m doing a sew along for the Fractured Skull Panel …eek! I am so excited to see some more skulls in fabric combinations I’m sure I will have never thought of. And to be sewing another myself!!!
I only released the pattern last week and decided to do a sew along on Saturday so still doing some planning so bear with me. I want to do some ‘live’ chats each week to introduce what we’re going to do and answer any questions you guys have.
I plan to do these on a Saturday night 10PM GMT so 5pm EST or 2pm PST or 8am (Sunday) AEDT. I will confirm the platform this will be on but most likely Zoom or Instagram/ Facebook Live.
Most of you guys use Instagram but a few of you are Facebook users so I have set up a Facebook group found here. Those of you who use both please could you post on both.
I will endeavour to help any of you struggling with anything and respond to any direct messages as soon as possible but with 2 young kids and ME/CFS my free time can be unpredictable. I also welcome any suggestions and feedback but it must be delivered with kindness. This leads me to the boring bit…
1- Be nice or don’t say anything,
2- Have fun!
This sew along will be super chilled. If you start late, no problem. Or if you don’t keep up, don’t worry! … Loads or a little participation is great!!!
I will send out more detailed info on a Thursday night confirming what we will be doing and giving details of live chats or updates.
Week 1 – 10th October – Introductions, Colouring & Fabric pull
Estimated time required: 10mins to 10hrs depending on how quickly you can make fabric decisions.
Week 2 – 17th October – Most of the Sewing
Estimated time required: 8 to 10hrs depending on how quick you sew. If you think you will be slow or short of time this week, I would suggest starting to sew in week one.
Week 3 – 24th October – Joining Sections & Finishing
Estimated time required: 2- 8hrs depending if you will just finish the panel or make it into anything?
FINAL DAY – Halloween 31st October – The Big Reveal
I will pick a winner (not exactly sure if it will be my favourite or randomly) in the first week of November. I don’t want anyone to feel left out or excluded if they are struggling because of the technicality or due to life getting in the way, so you will be eligible as long as you have signed up and done something. Prizes are still being organised so will be announced as we go along!
Lastly, if you have not already got yourself a copy of the pattern link to shop is here.
And if you’re on Instagram please post to your feed the sew along ‘I’m in’ image so your friends know you’re doing it and can join before it’s too late.
