announcing the fall 2015 kcw season

the fall 2015 season!

School is in. Hot weather is out. And a new season of KCW is here! Mark your calendars because the official challenge week this fall is October 19-25. Before then we will have inspiration galore on the blog. There will be gorgeous photos to get you excited to sew, beautiful fabrics you’ll discover you need, and patterns and tutorials to get you started. There will be plenty of time to dream of sewing before we get down to it and sew each day of KCW!

Maybe your lists of things to sew is so incredibly long you don’t know where to start. Maybe you need a little nudge in one direction to get going? That’s what are themes are for! And this season’s theme is pretty fantastic (if I do say so myself):  DISGUISE!  Kids love to dress up like ninjas, mailmen, ballerinas, cooks, mom and dad. Children love to become anyone and anything. My daughter once dressed up as a stick–and was very pleased with herself:)

Harness the power of make-believe and sew something fantastic! It might be a costume or it might not. Let the theme take you where it will.

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 feel like you have to apply it to everything you make
  • you can interpret the theme any way you like
  • don’t worry, our contributors will give you some ideas about how you can use the themes

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.
