What were you doing 10 years ago? What the heck was I doing?!
Well, I guess in some corner of my house, I sat down with a laptop and opened a WordPress account. I remember being very inspired by sewing and wanting to be part of the online conversation.
Back then, it was all about leaving long, enthusiastic comments on other people’s blogs. If you want to hear how it really worked, you should definitely listen to this podcast I took part in. The online sewing community was US-focussed, fledgling, and vibrant.
Much has changed – other than the vibrant part. And I am sooooo happy to see how many people have filled this world of ours with thousands of Instagram posts and comments. It really is staggering to see how some of my peers have grown from isolated individuals (“You sew?!”) to being successful authors, business people, Youtubers and community hosts. What else is to be achieved, and by whom?
So, let’s celebrate with a giveaway!
To herald 10 – yes, 10! – years of Did You Make That I have the following giveaway:
- A copy of The Little Book of Sewing
- Three metres of Lady McElroy Botanical Flamenco Midnight tana lawn
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment below saying what YOU would love to read in your next sewing book.
The competition is open internationally and will close at midnight GMT Sunday 23 February.
Good luck! And here is to the next 10 years…
