I’m co-hosting the Sew Long Summer Sewalong that’s going on over at Mahlica Designs.  The sewalong runs from August 24th through September 22nd (the last day of summer).

Each week we will have a new sew-a-long theme to help us wrap up summer and begin our slide into cooler weather.

Check out the work of the other co-hosts so that you stay in the know.

The weekly themes:

Summer Crush is Monday August 24th – Sunday August 30th.

We all have those patterns we’ve been crushing on but have just not taken a chance on yet. Time to make that move. Will it be true love? Or maybe hot days and cold drinks zapped your passion for a project? Well, lets get it back. This week we’re focusing on making that special item we wish we had made or knocking out those summer UFO’s (Un Finished Objects).


Never Ending Summer is Monday August 31st – Sunday September 6th.

When it’s bleak mid-winter, what can you be making that will help you thinking the sunny thoughts of summer?  This week’s theme is all about those makes.

Holi-Daze is Monday September 7th – Sunday September 13th

Labor Day is September 7th, time to show off your holiday wear (summer or upcoming holidays) and those special things you make with some extra time the holiday weekends provide.

Fabulous Fall is Monday September 14th – Tuesday September 22 (last day of summer)

Time to look ahead to fall with sewing up some transitional clothing.

Sewalong Guidelines:

The sew-a-long is for adult and children’s garment sewing. With the exception of the Summer Crush week where we’re allowing your summer UFOS, please only submit items you made for that week’s theme in the Link Up.

If you’re participating, we’d love for you to include our blog button in your posts or sidebar if you have one.
