A few people contacted me and asked it I could make a KCW button for the southern hemisphere folks. Everyone in the southern hemisphere, of course, is sewing for the opposite season. It makes sewing spring clothes when we keep talking about fall feel a little odd. So I made a button and left off the bit about fall:
You guys in the southern hemisphere are amazing sewers who make beautiful children’s clothes and I don’t want you to feel left out! I’m trying to think up ways to solve this problem, but I’m coming up short. I don’t think changing the name would help. I can’t call it fall/spring KCW because that’s confusing. I can’t call it third quarter KCW because that seems a bit lifeless. And I can’t have two separate KCWs: northern hemisphere fall 2013 KCW and southern hemisphere spring 2013 KCW, because, wow, that is way too complicated.
What would you do? Are there ways of making KCW more hemisphere-neutral? Would you like a “I’m sewing in the southern hemisphere” button on your KCW profile page? Should we just go by the month and year (october, 2013) and call it a day?
