Sew alongs.

Are there any new sew alongs or sewing challenges (vintage/retro related)? I always find out about them when they are near the closing date.. :-(



[EDITED TO ADD: Audrey I hope you don't mind me jumping into your post like this, but I think you've hit on a common problem - I'm always missing sewalongs because I only hear about them when they're wrapping up. If any of our contributors/readers are hosting a sewalong or sewing challenge with a specifically retro or vintage theme, don't hesitate to drop me a line at katherine [at] to let me know when you launch it and I’ll do what I can to get the word out.

The Challis Chalet is just coming to an end (was April long) – more at:

Then there’s Me Made May:
The theme for May’s Stash Busting Challenge is knits:

And you’ve seen the Great Gatsby one for May on Miss Crayola Creepy.

A good place to start finding out about sew along and monthly challenges is the list compiled by Kat over at Modern Vintage Cupcakes:

We’re doing a French knickers sew along at A Few Threads Loose. It’s not particularly vintage per se, but I am doing tutorials on vintage lingerie sewing and embellishment techniques.

Butterick has one going, celebrating 150 years. Make something inspired by the silver screen and it goes until about June 20th. I have had the same issue: I don’t know it’s happening until I see everyone’s finished projects. Good luck!
