I love Sewing Improv !The hosts for this fun and improvisational journey will be Rachael of imagine gnats and Kelley of casa crafty... and they are pleased as punch to be joined by Debra and Nicole, the authors of improv sewing: 101 fast, fun, and fearless projects and the Improv Diary blog.
Rachael, Kelley, Debra, and Nicole will choose one improv sewing project every month-ish, and will each share their version of the project. for each project, a guest to sew along and post with us. the schedule, not unlike the sewing, will be improv-inspired (hense the -ish)... so just keep an eye out for the next project in the series. They want you to channel the improv too! of course,They highly recommend getting your own (reasonably priced on amazon) copy of improv sewing, but you're welcome to sew along with or without. we won't be doing full tutorials, but you'll generally be able to get the idea of the project with or without. join the merrily we sew along flickr group so that you can share your creations with us. when they announce the monthly-ish project, they will also announce the "due date" for you to upload your projects... because by uploading pics of your project to the flickr group, you'll be entered to win that month's prize!
