Tasha and I have teamed up with Maegen and Karen from MaeandK.com to bring you CraftingCon – a series based on those things that we love to love!
CraftingCon is a monthly sewing competition with a different theme every month. There are four competitors for each theme who will each sew up one look. Our idea is for the looks to be inspired by the theme, but practical enough that they can be worn to the grocery store – in other words, no costumes (unless otherwise noted – like in October).
We will also have guests with inspirational posts and tutorials, including some adult features. That’s right – we have some brave ladies sewing up nerdy stuff for themselves and their husbands!
Want to get in on the fun? Email us at CraftingCon (at) gmail (dot) com to compete, guest post, or sponsor a prize!
We are also running a sew along in our CraftingCon Facebook group which is open to anyone. And if you aren’t inspired by this month’s theme, you can still join and sew along with a different month. We also like to share fun articles, our geeky projects, and our favorite reads in there. Looking for inspiration? Our Pinterest board is here and chock full of inspiration.
