Sew Grateful Week 2014: Are you participating?

***Update: Thank you to my readers that pointed out that I had the original dates wrong for the last week in February! lol.  All fixed now!!***

It's that time of the year again!  This year marks the 4th annual Sew Grateful Week!!
Sew Grateful Week is an annual event to give back to the sewing community and to show gratitude for everyone that supports us in our sewing hobbies.


Here's what we'll be doing for the week, feel free to participate in as many activities as you like.  I'll be hosting a link party each day--so you can come and post a link to your blog post:

Monday the 24th February: Giveaway Day.  Host a giveaway on your blog or other social media platform to give something back to the sewing community.

Tuesday the 25th February: Reflections Day. This is the day to reflect on the role sewing has played in our lives, reflecting on those who have been supportive in our journey and reflecting on what the online community means to us!  What are you sew grateful for?

Wednesday the 26th February: Sharing Resources Day. Share a free pattern, share some vintage sewing resources, share a tutorial or share some great sewing resource links!

Thursday the 27th February: Sew Grateful Sewing Project Day.  Showcase your latest sewing project. Whether it's a project using up that pattern that was a present from someone or that you won in a giveaway or using a tutorial someone has prepared, or even a project inspired by someone in the sewing community... the possibilities are nearly endless!

Friday the 28th to Sunday the 2nd: I'll post a series of round-up posts of some of the Sew Grateful Highlights from the week.

Check out the Sew Grateful Week homepage which has highlights from the Sew Grateful weeks in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Here's some banners and codes for your blogs (just copy the code below each picture and paste into your HTML and it should show up):

  1. It's so good you're reminding me of this.
    I still get the occasional email about the half circle culotte tutorial I made last year. And I keep thinking I should make and post something similar again but never get around to actually doing so.
    Now, I think I'll set myself the target of creating a pattern tutorial for Wednesday the 24th of February.

  22. Hi, I have started a blog very recently and I don't in the UK or even in Europe, but I feel like participating, just because it's "sew grateful" and I am grateful to so many people who have helped me in my sewing journey. Is that possible? And if yes, how can I participate?
