The Literary Sewing Circle: a new group project

8:05 PM



Announcing a new project: The Literary Sewing Circle!

Reading & Sewing, my two favourite things, go together so well. The Literary Sewing Circle is a new book club for sewists, open to anyone of any skill level who is interested in reading together and finding some sewing inspiration at the same time. It's a sewalong to celebrate the joy of reading and making; it's not a competition or a contest, but rather a relaxed and open-ended group project.

Every few months, I'll announce a shared read and we’ll have the opportunity for some online discussion about it over the course of the following 6 weeks, like a regular book club! I'll also share some inspiration posts amongst our book talk. After our book club portion, there will be a link-up posted where we can all share our makes inspired by our reading. Whatever you want to make is perfect, as long as you can explain how your reading inspired it... be creative!

The Literary Sewing Circle launches September 1st with the announcement of our first group read, and more details of the schedule. Stay tuned!

    1. I'm going to try to choose titles that are widely available so that more people can participate -- there will be Canadian books as well, but hopefully ones that can be found elsewhere too, either in hard copy or online.
