dates for kcw summer 2015


Each season we choose a theme, and you sew different kinds of clothes based on that theme. This summer’s theme is TRAVELING! Summer mean summer vacation and trips to the Grand Canyon, or the world biggest acorn, or grandpa’s cabin, or the Great Wall of China! Where ever your travels take you, you can use that as inspiration for this KCW.


KCW summer 2015 theme: TRAVELING


A few things about KCW themes:

  • you absolutely don’t have to sew something that conforms to the theme
  • if you want to use the theme, you don’t have to apply it to everything you make
  • you can interpret the theme in any way you like
  • our contributors will give you some direction on how you could use the theme

There really is only one rule for KCW: sew 1 hour a day for 7 days. Are you ready?! Well make it official! Click here to sign up for the June 2015 season. After you sign up, grab a button to put on your blog, or twitter, or Facebook, or Intstagram. The more people sewing along, the more exciting KCW is!

kcw theme: wild things


The theme this season is WILD THINGS. Already everyone seems to love this theme, which is super exciting! I really love it too. Maybe you can tell? I got a little carried away making the button graphics for this season. I could not stop drawing animals!

We have a great line up of contributors this season who are also super excited about the theme. They have been searching near and far for inspiration for you. WILD THINGS could go in so many directions–subtle to costume-y and everything in between! What do you think of the them  Have you signed up for this season yet? Well, what are you waiting for?!
