Australian sewing blogger Amanda from Bimble + Pimble, has created a fabulous new wave of social media sewing fun with "Bimble + Pimble Sewvember" .
The idea is to post a photo a day on Instagram,on the following topics:
The response has been fantastic!
It's always fascinating...often comforting...and sometimes downright hilarious to see the daily pictures posted by sewing aficionados from all over the world!
I've discovered all manner of sewing tools I must have, that my stash issues are pretty normal, that my sewing library must have some new additions and that I'm not the only person who SWOAP (sews without a plan) - and we are known as 'squirrels'.
The other benefit of Sewvember has been introduction to a HUGE number of new (to me) sewing instagrammers and bloggers. Goodness, this creative, inspired and inspiring community is expanding exponentially!
Why not jump in for the last days of Sewvember?
If you have an Instagram account, use the search function to look for #bpsewvember
If you want to set up an Instagram account, you need a smart phone, with the Instagram app downloaded. It's free to set up. .
Here's a sample of my Sewvember pics....you'll have to get your own Instagram account to read what these pics are about!
For those of you already savvy with Instagram, we've also started a #asgmember page. So far, it's Sarah and I posting to #asgmember, but we'd love it if other ASG members with Instagram accounts posted pics of their sewing creations. Just remember to include the tag: #asgmember when you post.
Yet another fabulous way to further and share the love of sewing!!
