Wednesday Weekly #67

Happy Wednesday, makers! I have a new segment in the Wednesday Weekly this week! I am sharing some of the amazing community events that are happening, so you can stay up to date on deadlines, dates, and join in! If you are running an online sewing community event that you think the Wednesday Weekly readers would like to know about, you can drop me a line anytime to give me a heads up. There is always so much going on in this little sewing world of ours, it can be hard to keep up!

I love hearing from you guys! Recently, a fellow Vancouverite and sewist reached out to me via email to say hi. She is planning to focus on vlogging her sewing journey in 2017 so you can follow along on her YouTube channel, PBunnieP, to see what she makes!  Her videos are high quality and she is impressively composed. I could never talk on camera for so long without messing up!

  1. Oh, I like the additions of events to your round-up! And thanks for starting with the CSC!
    One of my goals this year is to see if I can get myself interested in sewing vloggers… It hasn’t really interested me before, but it’s a growing community so I figure I better pay attention! 😉

  2. Thanks for the mention, again! I always get a little buzz out of seeing my name here! Like the others above, I also get so much out of your weekly round ups! It must be such hard work, but it’s so worth it. X
