Sew-Alongs & Online workshops





What is the difference between a sew-along and an online workshop?

A sew-along is when a group of people all work on the same project.  Instructions are distributed electronically, in bite-sized chunks, over a set period of time.  The beauty of a sew-along is that participants don’t have to all be in the same location.  They can use social media or an online forum to post questions, pictures or discussion points.  Once a sew-along is complete,  instructions can be accessed at any time via the links below 

An online workshop is similar to a sew-along.  The difference is that all instructions are made available at the beginning of the workshop, rather than being doled out a bit at a time.  Instructions for each online workshop will be available for a finite time.
