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 all you get!

Join us for one!

Boho Heart Quilt Along

Join us for this fun sew along making Jen Kingwell and Andrea Bair’s Boho Heart Quilt!

This quilt is going to look stunning in pretty much every fabric selection you decide on… but I am going to use a curated bundle of Alison Glass fabrics.

The quilt along is starting on February 1st 2021 and you will need to sign up here to receive the weekly emails with all the details of which blocks and my tips and tricks.

You can post your blocks and progress on Instagram or in our Facebook Sewalong Group.

#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.

Stitch Pink Sew Along

Stitch Pink 2020 saw us sewing the 30 blocks that Moda Fabrics had created for each of the days of October (and 1 finishing pattern) for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Everyone grabbed their pink fabric (and some not-so pink fabrics!) and joined in on the fun.

SWL Advent Calendar Sew Along

The Advent Calendar pattern is a fun one to make in the lead up to December – and having some friends to sew along with to keep you on track is always fun! We had a great time with this sew along and it was interesting to see how people tweak a pattern to make it their own!
