As you may have noticed, the Historical Sew Monthly 2018 is on – all the details and challenges are up.
Here’s the big secret about 2018…
(so big even the other moderators don’t know about it).
In my mind it wasn’t going to happen.
Participation has dropped a bit, it’s been going for five years (seriously y’all, FIVE YEARS!). I figured five years was enough. We’d had a good run, we’d made some amazing things, and it was time to say goodbye.
But I was so busy in the last half of 2017, that before I could find time to discuss it with the other moderators it was December, and they, brilliant wonderful people that they are, had planned everything. There had organised a Challenge theme brainstorming session on FB, collated all the suggestions in our moderator group, had a discussion and poll on the choices, made a Hero image for the year…
All I had to do was vote on my favourite challenges in the poll, and write the HSM 2018 page. So I couldn’t pull the plug at that point!
So here’s to the fabulous moderator group for the Historical Sew Monthly 2018:
- BrÃ¡nn of Matsukaze Workshops
- Elisa of Isis’ Wardrobe
- KlÃ¡ra of America & Europe During the 18th Century
- Kura of Making Makes My Life
- Ninka of FrÃ¤uline Ninka
- And welcome back to Hana of Marmota’s Dress Diaries
Without them, the Historical Sew Monthly would be dead in the water – both in 2017 and 2018. They are an amazing group of people, and do so much to keep the HSM running, interesting, and cordial.
And here’s to all you participants! You’ve made the whole journey (all five years of it!) such a joy.
Here’s to the Historical Sew Monthly 2018! Here’s to a sixth year that is the best yet!
Go forth and make!
