Sew Alongs

Here at Said With Love we have a couple of Sew Alongs a year.

We like our Sew Alongs to be relaxed and fun and supportive. You know, the sort that don’t have a million rules and regulations so that if life gets in the way it is OK. Sometimes there are prizes because we have found some great sponsors, sometimes getting the love and support of your fellow quilters is enough!

Join us for one!

#sewmyprecious Sew Along

Have you got some fabrics in your stash that are really precious and you just don’t seem to be able to cut into them?

Well this is the sew along for you!

We are encouraging you to get that fabric off the shelf and into a beautiful project!

It can be a quilt or a cushion or a garment or a bag…. the pattern is up to you!

We are starting now (18th March 2020) and this will be a relaxed and slower sew along.

The pattern I have chosen (the Cross Plus Quilt) has 49 blocks in it, so my quilt is going to take me until at least the end of the year to finish.
