Sewlovelee Starts 2023!

Challenge Yourself 2023!

New Year=New sewing goals!
In 2023, each month Sewlovelee will issue a new challenge to expand your sewing skills and help you keep it fresh.

January Challenge:
Clean and organize sewing area, itemize UFOs, and get stuff done!
American Patchwork & Quilting has you covered when it comes to your UFOs. Their 2023 UFO Challenge will get your UFOs organized, provide a way to finish them, and offer quilty support in a private FB group.
Head on over to and download the 2023 Challenge chart and add 12 projects you want to finish this year. Visit the challenge page at the beginning of each month to learn what project number is slated to be finished that month!
Then, get sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, whatever the project entails.

Speaking of challenges...
Moda Fabrics has thrown down a challenge: The Moda Charm Pack Challenge, January 14-16. The challenge is to make the Moda Love Charm Quilt
Lee stitched up sample using scraps from Just Beachy (the quilt included in Quilt Sampler Spring/Summer 2022 edition and featuring two of our crab batiks, designed by us and exclusive to the shop). This pattern is perfect for any charm packs you have in your stash or scraps you've accumulated!

One way to clean and organize your sewing space is to organize your scraps. . . and so many great quilts are made with scraps!!
