Hi Everyone! This April marks 2 years since the launch of Sewing With Cinnamon - Crazy, how time flies! I just wanted to take some time to thank you all for being a part of this community! It is only possible because you are here :)
I'd love to recap and review a bit - is that ok? I thought what better way to move forward into year 3 than to get your feedback and ask you what you think!
I created a survey and would love to have you take some time to go through it and answer the questions. Some are multiple choice, some are open text. Please be honest - I'm prepared to hear the worst, but honestly hoping for the best, haha!
I'd love to know you better, where you're at as a seamstress, what courses you've liked and learned from, what struggles you have, and how to make this community even better!
Please click this link to go to the survey:
Then come back here (or once you're finished) and post in the comments below that you've completed it.
Or if this is viewable below, Fill out the survey right here (this might not be viewable by all internet browsers) Be sure to scroll through all the questions below, once you get through all the questions, click "finish the survey" at the bottom:
We have a lot of great things planned for this coming year! April is a month with 5 Tuesdays, so we will kick things off next week, the 9th, with our new topic - Sewing Seam Finishes (with a sew along for the Mindil Beach Dress). We will look at a variety of ways to finish your seams using a standard sewing machine. You don't really need any special tools for this topic (although the dress has eyelets, so a crop-odile would be good to have). That's the beauty of it! You will want to have lightweight cotton fabric, sharp scissors, a good iron, pressing board or mat, and a little bit of patience!
Coming soon after, we will have these topics:
I'm also excited to announce that I have been in conversation with Babylock and will be working with them as an influencer for their machines! Yay! So, I'm happy to announce that after all these years of not using a serger for my work - they have worked their magic, shown me the possibilities of the Babylock Sergers and I will be going to their headquarters in June to get some hands-on training! Then I will be practicing on the new machines over the summer and in September, we will have a Sewing With A Serger at the Smaller Scale!
Isn't that exciting!
