We’re having a big Back-to-School (and back-to-sewing) celebration, offering 15% off all sewing patterns! Check out our newsletter to get all the details and the coupon code. (And sign up for our newsletter so you’re sure to receive future discounts.)
Today we’ll give away a Figgy’s pattern of your choice to two lucky winners. Our friend and the founder of Figgy’s, Shelly Figueroa, is up to amazing things. She has recently launched an indiegogo campaign to help her realize her dream of opening a sewing studio for kids. Shelly says,
This Indiegogo project is all about the kids. With parents too busy to teach sewing, knitting, fashion design, screen printing or crochet (or need a class themselves) and the schools have eliminated Home Ec and creative classes, there are very limited places and spaces for the children to learn these invaluable skills.
We couldn’t agree more! Sometimes when you’re deeply involved in the online crafting community, it’s easy to lose sight of how true this is. Many kids don’t learn these time-honored crafts at home and definitely not in schools. We love that Shelly sees a need in her community and is trying to do something about it. Check out Shelly’s campaign and spread the word!
To enter to win a Figgy’s pattern of your choice, tell us about your experience learning crafts. Did you have home ec? Did your kids? Did you learn from a family member? Do you have any studios like this in your neighborhood? We want to hear about it.
Have a great weekend!
