Zakka Style Sew-Along!

Earlier in February, I talked about wanting to do a sew along  with Rashida’s book Zakka Style and I’m excited to finally share the details!

Amy and I have put together a sew along/blog hop that will include 24 fabulous bloggers and you!

There are 24 projects in the book and we will be sewing right through it from start to finish.

The sew along starts Monday April 2nd with the first project in the book and will continue through Monday September 10th with a new project  introduced each Monday.

Each blogger will sew a different project and will be sharing their finished project and inspiration with you.

 There will be a week in between each project to give you time to sew along &  I’ll be sewing along right beside you.    I sure hope you’ll join in on the fun!

I’ll be sharing more soon, but wanted to give you a chance to prepare since you will need a copy of the book to participate.

I’ve compiled a list of some places you can purchase online and it also comes in e-book form too!

E-book:

Paperback Book:

There will be some lovely prizes offered each week and we are so thankful to have the support of:

Ria - This is a great idea! I bought that book a little while ago but haven’t made anything from it yet. I can’t wait to see what everyone else does, and I’ll probably end up using this as inspiration to try out a few patterns from the book.

Pink Stitches - Just ordered my book! Can’t wait to get started!!

anna - wahoo!! this is going to be so much fun!!!

Celtic Thistle - Have made a few projects from Rashida’s earlier book, and wondered about buying this book too. This has made up my mind I am in!

Flying Blind - Brilliant, I love this book x

darcychildress - This sounds like such fun – looking forward to sewing along! Thanks for putting all this together :-)

H2Ogirl - Yeah. . I can’t wait!

nicke - oh this looks fun!

simone - I’ve had the book for a while now and wanted to start a project every week. But guess what. Not one project done yet. So, this is great!!! I can’t wait.
Have a lovely weekend.

Satu - This looks fun… always dreamed of doing zakka, but so far I haven’t done any!!! I’ll join! Now I must purchase the book….

Lindsay Conner - Sweet! I got the book for Christmas, so this will be extra motivation to make something from it! I especially loved Rashida’s book I Heart Patchwork–can’t wait to see what you all come up with! =)

Mary Ann B - I purchased this book when it first was released and it’s been sitting with some beautiful linen and some of my favorite fabrics! This will ‘encourage’ me to get the items from the book that I have marked to make DONE! Thanks for organizing this!

Lizzie - Making it very tempting when I see the book is available as an e-book……

Densews - So happy to see this. I have this book but so far have not made anything. This is what I need to get me going. Just bought some linen fabric too. Thanks for starting this.

LindseyR - I love I heart Patchwork too, I just love Rashida’s style period! Excited to start sewing up the projects.

ayumills - Thank you so much for organizing this, Lindsey! This will be such a fun sew-along!

Nina - Hey its funny i did the first project already, will be fine if u give me a comment if u like it or not :)

LindseyR - It’s beautiful Nina!!

Rosalyn - I am looking forward to this…just picked up my book and love the tote…I may go ahead and put some initials into the project and make this for my daughter Amanda…

shirley tener - I am excited about my first sew along, Maureen Cracknell has inspired me to participate. I love all of ya’ll work and cant wait to see how we all interpet the patterns…LOL, especially ME ! Keep on Sewing…

Jennifer Mathis (@EllisonLane) - This will be so fun Lindsey!

jf wilkinson - I would really truely love to take part, however, I think I’ll be biting off more than I can chew right now, …. :-(

I will still follow though if thats ok?

Maybe even get the book and make up some blocks incorporating them into our super-quilt that may take a few millennia to make thanks to the gargantuan size of our bed! ;-)

Janey x

Kathy - What a GREAT idea! I’ve had this book for a while and have been making little zakka -style projects for awhile. Will love following along and making projects as I have time :) Off to pick up additional supplies of linen – the way I’ve been using it lately, it would be more efficient to buy a roll!

Kimi - Book in hand and looking forward to doing these projects together!

Question: Where’s the best place to purchase linen?

Kate Schmidt - I got my book today! It’s gorgeous. Can’t wait for the sew-along to start!

Chris - so great that it is an ebook too!

Laurel - Just ordered a copy! Excited to get sewing!

beadworkstudio - I’ve always wanted to do an -along or swap, but I always hear about them after they start. I’m so excited that I’m not late to the party this time!

kateschmidt - I ran out and got the interfacing for the first project today. Now I just need to choose my cottons and iron my linen, and I’ll be ready to start on Monday!

Sweta - I love those! My teacher in cotsume construction called it the most useful tool you’ll every buy. I last used it for measuring how wide I should cut a strip of fabric for some bias tape I was making. I love finding little time-saving doo-dahs like that. Usually it’s sewing machine feet. I also recently found this thing for making bias tape that folds the strip of cloth for you. Works like a dream.Keep up the good blogging!Frances
