The sewpony team!

February 17, 2018


Today I am really excited to introduce you to the first sewpony team!  I have thought about the idea of having a team for a while and decided to take the plunge and put out a call for anyone who might be interested.  Initially I thought four or five people joining me would be great...then I saw so many lovely applications, I decided to extend this number just a bit and now I have 14 wonderful people putting their hand up to join me in helping me through sewing, ideas, feedback, motivation and fun!
On the first of each month you will see some fun sewpony sewing from these ladies. So, in no particular order, here they are (ps...sorry for the less than perfect formatting of this post...thanks blogger).

sewpony team seamstress search!

February 03, 2018


Today I have something very exciting and fun to announce! I am wanting to develop a sewpony team to support  my business and collaborate with like minded sewists. So what does this mean? I am hoping to recruit 4-5 lovely ladies to join the sewpony team who would be involved in the following ways:
1.  Assist with pattern ideas and development, pre-testing of new designs and naming of patterns via a private facebook group;
2.  Sewing up a sewpony pattern hack, blend or straight.  We will post on the first of every month. You will be featured here on the blog and on sewpony social media pages, with a different contributor each month (meaning you will be committed to sew once every 4/5 months depending on team number);
3. You will have access to all sewpony patterns.
4.  Make suggestions/collaborate on future sewpony designs.

Are you interested? To express your interest, please complete the application form HERE.  Applications will close Tuesday 6 February at 11am AEDST (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time).  All applicants will be notified shortly after this time via email.  The team will be announced the following week and the first feature will take place in April.   Thanks for your interest!!
