Sleevefest 2017

We are delighted to be co-hosting #sleevefest2017! Come and join the party, and celebrate #yearofthesleeve with the online sewing community!

Together with Dream.Cut.Sew we want you to get creative with sleeves! Set in, raglan, cap, dolman, circle, straight, gathered, tiny, huge, sheer, structured, tapered, puffed, short, long, flounce, flutter – let your imagination run free! We’ve got some great prizes thanks to our amazing sponsors, and there will be a prize by public vote at the end (yes, you can help us choose a winner!) as well as five winners picked at random. So whether you’re a beginner or an experienced sewist, join in, have fun, make some friends and share the sleeve love!
