Ciao makers! Welcome to the list of November 2019 maker challenges.
The continually updated master list of all the maker challenges is always up in the menu bar. But if you want the list for just November 2019 maker challenges, here you go! This also includes challenges that are ongoing and those ending this month that may have started earlier in the year.
52 Week Sewing Challenge: a Facebook-only challenge with weekly themes. November’s are:
- Sew Something from an International Pattern
- Sew an Undergarment
- Sew Something From Your Scrap Bin
- Sew a Holiday Outfit
#SewFrosting: @truebias and @closetcase.patterns bring back their fun hashtag to encourage you to make something a little extra, an “excuse to sew something fun and impractical because you want to and it inspires you.” No deadline, just have fun for the rest of the year!
#SewFamilyJammies: join @sewalteredstyle and sponsor @makermountainfabrics to end the year with pajama-making. Sign up on SAS’s website before Black Friday and get those PJs made by New Year’s Day! Ends January 1, 2020.
#SewMyStyle2019: each month brings a new theme and potential sponsor prizes. November’s theme is bags featuring the Taylor Tailor Desmond Backpack and SarKirsten Raspberry Rucksack! Join the Facebook group for more info.
#SewPrettyInside: follow @victorialucilleleanne, @sewitcurly, @soapstealer for info and prizes this month when showing off the nicely finished insides of your garments or accessories. Ends November 30th.
#SewYourStyleSAL: a Facebook-only contest, this month’s theme is to create an outfit that expresses YOUR style. Submissions must be posted in the Facebook album. Join the Sew Alongs & Sewing Contests Facebook group to see full details. Ends November 30.
#LiterarySewingCircle: like books AND sewing? Get inspired for autumn by A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. Runs September 13th to November 15th.
#30DaysofCreativePractice: artist Wendy BrightBill’s free 30-day course to enhance your creativity. Join anytime.
#30WearsChallenge: an ongoing prompt to make you think about the next thing you make. Will it receive 30 wears? Start anytime.
#BurdaChallenge2019: the fun continues in 2019, set your own goals for using Burda patterns and join all year.
#BurdaStylePlus: if you use a plus-size BurdaStyle pattern, use this new hashtag!
#KnowYourSewists: started by @angelica_creates as a way to get to know other sewists in the Instagram community outside of sewing. Post a photo of yourself and caption it with 3-5 non-sewing facts about you, then tag 3 friends. Participate at any time!
#LetsDiscuss2019: for the book bloggers, to engage in lively debates all year long
#MakeNine: a low-key year-long prompt to encourage the making of garments (sewing, knitting, crocheting, etc), using either this or #2019MakeNine. Join anytime.
#MySewingStartedHere: join @sewcialists and show Instagram where your sewing started. No one starts an expert!
#PoseLikeTheModel: born out of @annachristinasews feelings “about how ridiculous it is that I can’t find patterns with a realistic variety of models,” this draws attention to the very real lack of diversity on pattern models in terms of size, age, and skin color.
#SewBreastFeeding: for showing off breastfeeding-friendly outfits.
#SewingInRealLife: created by @workroomsocial as a way to show sewing in real life instead of the “beautifully manicured Instagrammer.” Join in anytime!
#UseNine2019: another year-long prompt to encourage you to use up 9 stash fabrics. Join anytime.
