december is archer appreciation month

November 27, 2013


Earlier this month Erin had a fabulous idea sparked from some twitter chatter regarding the Grainline Studio Archer pattern. After some collaboration between Erin, Jen, and myself, we’ve dubbed December to be Archer Appreciation Month!

Jen has a reputation for designing and drafting exceptional patterns, and no one does it better than Grainline when it comes to menswear style with a feminine twist. I’ve been wanting to sew the Archer for months and I’ve finally bumped it to the top of my queue for this special event.


Here’s how it works: Anytime during the month of December you can sew and share your version of the Archer pattern. Use any of these graphics in your posts, as well as the social media hashtag, to help spread the word. Upload your photos to the Grainline Flickr Group using the tag #archerappreciation. Jen will be featuring all the Archers sewn for Archer Appreciation Month on her blog in early January to showcase your work!

Jen has a whole series of sew-along posts for Archer already on her blog so you’ll have plenty of help if this is your first time working through the pattern.

If you’ve made an Archer already, but have yet to blog about it, Archer Appreciation Month is the perfect time to do so!

If you don’t yet have the pattern, Jen is having a 20% off pattern sale from now through Monday night.

I hope you’ll sew with us and show your support for one of the best names in independent sewing!
