Once or twice a year, our Guild has a sewing challenge issued where those who wish to participate may. This year, we have a challenge for the summer as we break, with results to be seen when we reconvene in the fall.

The theme for this year’s Guild Sewing Challenge is BLUE, as suggested by Tory LeBlanc.

Think blue jeans. Indigo. Denim jackets and skirts. Crazy, dramatic up-cycled/refashioned denim with lace and embroidery and beading.

Or go in the opposite direction, fabric-wise. Blue velvet. Blue satin. Blue sequins.

Blue has so shades and intensities. Baby blue. Sky blue. Teal blue. Turquoise blue. Rich purply royal blue. Midnight blue so dark it looks black.

Blue is also an emotion. When you’re feeling sad and blue, what clothes you pull on for comfort?

Lady Sings the Blues – the jazzy glamour that burns hot.

What about when something comes out of the blue? Unexpected. Be it fabric that falls into your hands, or an idea/design that suddenly pops in your head.

The fun in this Challenge is the way you interpret the word BLUE. Play with it, twist it, make it yours. Then sew it up and show it to us at the October 2014 meeting. Plain and practical, or creative and clever, we want to see
them all!

If you have any questions or concerns, or want to share your delicious idea
with someone, contact Tory LeBlanc.
