Do you want to be a part of Sew,Mama,Sew!?

on January 4 | in Contributors | by | with 21 Comments

We’re compiling a list of potential contributors for the year ahead! We keep a running list of people who would like to join in a theme month with a unique tutorial, do a pattern review, help plan our themes as a board member, etc. If you’ve sent your info in before please send it again if you’re still interested; we might find the perfect match between our needs and your special skills or interests this year…

Email: [email protected]

  • Please send your name and links to your blog, shop and any other relevant social media sites you’d like us to see.
  • Give us links to a few things you’ve sewn lately that you just love, to give us an idea of your style and interests.
  • Please note if you’re interested in pattern reviews, tutorials, if you want to be a board member, etc. (Even if it’s all of the above!)
  • If you’re interested in doing pattern reviews, let us know if you have time in the next couple of weeks. If you do, let us know if you have any pattern preferences (i.e. girl clothes in toddler sizes, bags, women’s clothing, etc.)
  • We’ll keep a master list with everyone’s contact info. We can’t respond to everyone, but we appreciate your interest and we’ll try to find a fit! Thank you!

      Spot on with this write-up, I really assume this website wants far more consideration. I’ll in all probability be once more to read far more, thanks for that info.

      Hi!
      I have been a self taught sewist for the last 4 years and discovered my passion! I try to sew every single day! I would love to be a pattern tester for bags, purses and/or accessories! I have two different shops on etsy: the first one is for my fun and funky fabric items (www.sewingmendsthesoul.etsy.com) and my sister shop is for my recycled items made from clothing items from a local consignment shop (www.greengypsychic.etsy.com)

      Thanks in advance for your consideration!!

    5. I do a bit of everything would be the best way to describe myself. My sewing tends to be scrappy stuff, things I am insprired to try when I see clothes heading to the wastebasket at the consignment or thrift shop. I love trying to make something out of beautiful fabric and salvaging fantastic findings, such as buttons, lace, and trim. Some of the things I make are pot holders, totes, hats, and what ever else I think of.
      I have been sewing and quilting for over 40 years.
      I have two online shops to help support my habit, http://www.goofingoff.etsy.com and http://www.goofingoff.artfire.com.

      I taught myself sewing,quilting, crochet, knitting, cross stitch and smocking from books while I was living in Amsterdam, Holland and Munich, Germany since 1990.

      I would like to join Sew Mama Sew as well if given the opportunity. I have recently sewn some Victorian outfits for Dickens of a Christmas, Mad Hatter, Alice and Queen of Heart costumes for Halloween. I enjoyed house decorating as well. Most of my creations are giveaways.

      I have my crafts shown on Craftsy and my home decorations and cooking on my own personal blog.

      I’d love to be part of Sew Mama Sew. I have a blog (see above) where you can see many of my projects. I’ve written tutorials for a number of things and my 2011 wrap up post shows a good representation of the things I’ve done in the past year. http://piecedgoods.wordpress.com/2012/01/06/a-look-back/
      I’d be interested and happy to do pattern reviews, tutorials, and/or be a board member. My favorite thing to make is quilts and quilted items but I’m game to try anything! Cheers and Hapy 2012!

    8. I am a self-taught sewer and quilter of 10 years and love making things to give away as gifts! I tie all of my quilts because I’m not set-up to machine quilt them, but I’m anxious to hone my skills and showcase the results. My favorite project in 2011 was a set of placemats from the Sew,Mama,Sew! sew-along in November – I had picked up various chicken-themed fabrics while on vacation over the summer and this project made excellent use of them. I would love to tackle any project that would be tossed my way!

      Hi, I am Roz, a quilter from New Zealand
      My website is http://www.squiltz.co.nz/
      My blog http://www.squiltz.blogspot.com
      You might be interested in my style because I have made a few quilts with holes/spaces in them http://www.squiltz.blogspot.com/2011/08/whole-new-concept.html
      I have also prepared some machine quilting tutorials for example:
      http://www.squiltz.co.nz/quilting/machine-quilting-part-one/
      http://www.squiltz.co.nz/quilting/machine-quilting-part-two/
      I have also made quilts and the like using selvedges (I notice looking back at these that the images are not great and will work at improving and replacing these – when I started I was very new to photography)

      I have been sewing for less than 2 years, so I would love to represent semi-beginners in doing pattern reviews. I mostly make things up as I go, so it would be great practice for me and a true review of how thorough the pattern is! Here are a couple links to projects I’ve sewn:

      http://www.stayathomeartist.com/2011/01/reversible-sewing-machine-cover.html
      http://www.stayathomeartist.com/2011/09/t-shirt-yoga-skirt-tutorial.html
      http://www.stayathomeartist.com/2011/03/stitch-by-stitch-review-reversible-tote.html

      I am definitely available to do some sewing in the next few weeks. (I don’t yet have children, so I’d prefer to review other types of patterns–bags, women’s clothing, home items, etc.)
      Thanks!
      Kacey

    11. I would love it!!!!! Sending you an email today!

      Hi there,
      I would love to be part of Sew Mama Sew and would be interested in tutorials or being a board member. I would also do a pattern review but can’t in the next couple of weeks.

      My etsy shop link is http://www.etsy.com/shop/needlesandlemons
      and blog http://www.needlesandlemons.com.

      I love colourful quilts and am also looking for a good back and love making bags myself. A few quilts and other crafted things I lately saw that cought my eye are:

      I would love to be a pattern tester, and yes, I do have some time in the next couple of weeks. I’d rather test bags or quilt patterns than clothing – especially women’s clothing. But I would be fine testing girls dresses (sizes 6 and up)!

      Mostly I sew quilts, but also do a fair number of pillows and bags.
      I have done lots of paper-piecing, and love it.
      Here are a couple of my favorite projects:

      Yay! Thanks so much for putting together this list!

      Here are the links to some things I’ve sewn:
      These were some of my gifts this year – all sewn: http://www.flamingotoes.com/2012/01/handmade-gifts-for-2011/
      http://www.flamingotoes.com/2011/12/linen-travel-jewelry-bag/

      http://www.flamingotoes.com/2011/09/picnic-bag-and-quilt-set/

      I would love to share a tutorial or do pattern reviews. My time is pretty flexible and I would be happy to do bags/womens clothes/that sort of thing. My kids are older (teens) so I don’t have little ones around to review with.

      Thanks for considering me!

    16. Hello, Sew, Mama, Sew! Love your page, pics and info. I have a Facebook page entitled “Nonnie’s Fashions” that I just recently created. I’ve got pictures posted of lots of things I’ve made and embroidered. It’s my passion since I retired in 2009. Thank you for this opportunity.

      Hi there, I’m really interested in being a contributor for sew mama sew in 2012! I write a blog (motherwho.wordpress.com) about being a mother and trying to lead a slower life. This includes buying less and making more!

      I’m a beginner sewer and started learning about 18 months ago. I’d be most interested in doing pattern reviews and have a 21 month old daughter so toddler girls sewing is mainly where I’m at. I also make some clothes for myself as well as bags, purses, etc. I love to use reclaimed and upcycled fabrics and in doing so have only bought new material once or twice. This in itself has been a journey, learning about what types of materials can be used for what and how to transform one item of clothing or material into another item… A lot of trial and error that’s for sure! But I hate waste so have loved being able to use vintage and other material/items to make fresh new things.

      I also have an etsy store: http://birdiesaid.etsy.com. The shop will be back from vacation next week.

      Thanks very much for the opportunity and I hope to hear from you! I am available in the next few weeks as well as ongoing throughout the year.

      Best wishes,
      Lucinda

      I have made sewing machine and serger covers, pillow cases and bags.

      I am interested in bag making tutorials, pattern reviews, how to use fabkrics (knit, cotton, sils etc).

      I will be free to try out any basic patterns for review. I am a beginner, and would love to help in any way I can.

      Hello!
      You have featured my blog once before on your website. I would love to be a contributor. I have written pattern tutorials both from scratch and for a pattern that was written in broken english. I am a pattern tester for Sis Boom patterns so if you ever needed anything written related to Sis Boom I would be happy to contribute. I would be willing to do a pattern review for patterns written by other patternmakers as well. I have sewn from quite a few different pattern designers including ones not written in English(and me not knowing the language in which the patterns were written). I would be best at reviewing children’s and women’s patterns but I certainly have sewn enough to review bags or quilts etc.
      I am not sure what the requirements would be for a board member or how that is organized. Could you possible expand on that a bit?
      My blog is http://www.sewprettydresses.blogspot.com
      A few of my favorites since July are the following

      Sorry I had to go back to July. I do more spring, summer, fall sewing than winter. Our winters are so short and can be filled with lots of mild days so while I do sew winter things, I sew mostly for the warmer seasons.

      Thank you for your consideration.

      Love purse, tote, quilt patterns. Im into modern quilting. I love sewing tutorials, ive posted pics of items ive made on my facebook (tlolovestats) under my name Tina Moore. Have fb page called TLM Designs. Blog, twitter etc. Id love help out in anyway.

    21. Hello. I have a website, but it’s a cooking website so I wouldn’t find it pertinent to this. However, I’m strongly considering starting a second blog that covers my crafty adventures (mainly sewing, knitting and quilting). I’ve been sewing for 40 years now. I’ve done pretty much everything… baby clothes, dance costumes, clothing for myself, decorative items, quilts. I live in Madison County, Iowa and started a quilt club MANY years ago with the help of Marianne Fons, of Fons and Porter quilting. (They are also Madison county residents).

      I’m pretty much interested in all of the above! I would love to be a board member. I would be happy to review patterns – I think my preferences would include baby clothes (either boy or girl), bags, and women’s size clothing that would be designed for a tween. Children are a lot bigger these days than they used to be! Both taller and more muscular. Tweens either have to wear women’s designs or go to the “chubby” section of department stores, and wear what they describe as “little kid” design clothes.

      I feel confident that I could also do a tutorial, as long as I have clear instructions as to what you want and expect in that tutorial. If you would like to take a look at my present blog, I’m including the web address. It would not, however, be the blog where I would talk about sewing, patterns, etc.

      I am well acquainted with social media… as “Chef Herman” I boast 690 Twitter followers, and always gaining more. I belong to a local (Des Moines) social media club, and I have to say, am seeing a trend in Pinterest being a new social media contender, at least for certain visual products. Many Etsy sellers have images posted to Pinterest, either by themselves or Etsy buyers.

      Unfortunately I don’t have links to recent sewing projects, but I can tell you they include a patchwork sewing kit, bags and the beginnings of a quilt for my daughter’s wedding in May.

      Thanks for the opportunity to be a potential contributor!
