Do you ever find yourself in a rut with your knitting or sewing? Making the same things over and over, not really branching out into new skills, shapes, or directions? It’s usually fear or self-doubt that gets in my own way, causing creative blocks, burn-out, and boredom. If you want to try something different and more purposeful this year, join us on the Make Your Own Nine challenge! Choose nine projects you want to complete this year, plan them out, and revel in your success!
But where to start? Luckily, Tabetha Hedrick is here to help you plan your perfect Make Nine step-by-step in this workshop. We hope you’ll take this opportunity not only to create your own clothing and accessories, but push yourself into new creative directions: try new techniques, learn new skills, and have a great year!
Download your workbook and let’s get started!

My #makenine2021 is coming along nicely. I spent the last few weeks working away at the #goldstreampeacoat and it turned out great. Mine is a mish-mash of traditional dressmaking and traditional tailoring techniques. This is my first step towards my ultimate goal of a handspun handwoven handmade coat. BTW, looking good musoscientific !
Wool vadmal outer, linen interlinings, certified-sustainable viscose lining, silk sewing thread, corozo buttons. It is so important when considering our clothes to think about their entire life. How they and their components are made and what they are made out of. How they are maintained. How they will return to the soil. I want this coat to be compostable. I want it to be used and look good for a long time… but a long time doesn't mean forever! …
Self-drafted knitting pattern. Custom merino blend on my drum carder. Handspun woollen 3-ply yarn. Hand knitted.
A labour of love. For musoscientific
This saddle-shouldered pullover is part of my #makeninechallenge which for #makenine2021 is all about Scott's wardrobe. Next up, tailoring a peacoat. Challenge accepted. …
Work done and work in progress. A good start to #makenine2021.

Happy New Year! 2021 is here and we're back in the studio, rejuvenated after a holiday rest. We hope you enjoyed some quiet moments of rest and relaxation, and that the new year brings with it that excitement of new – new projects, patterns, and perhaps trying some new techniques. It's great to already see so many posts of 2021 project plans or first cast-ons of the year, but if you're looking for help with motivation and inspiration, join in the Make Nine challenge!

Sharing my #makenine for 2021… the Scott edition. After a thorough review it was decided that the man needs new clothes. There will be more makes than this but these represent the intentional makes.
Looking at natural fibres (prioritising local fibre), minimal and/or environmentally-friendly manufacturing/sourcing of materials, and ensuring the right fibre is constructed into the right yarn for the right fabric in the right project.
Should be fun 🙂 …
ON THE VLOG // We’re halfway through the year and it’s a great time to check in and ask yourself how your “Make 9” is coming along. In today’s episode of Taking Back Friday, I’m re-visiting my original goals that I set back in January and asking myself if they are projects I still want to accomplish, or if I should re-negotiate my commitments. With life in 2020 throwing us a curveball and creating new routines, new schedules, and new activities in our lives… it makes sense that our original goals might have changed.
How have your project goals changed and what will you focus on for the next six months?

ON THE VLOG // In an effort to make things with more intention this year, I decided to use Tabetha’s new workshop “Plan Your Best Nine” on the School of SweetGeorgia to help me organize my thoughts and ideas for the projects I want to make this year.
In today’s episode of Taking Back Friday, I share a bit of detail about each of the projects that I want to accomplish and consider how it might help improve my skills in weaving, knitting, spinning, and sewing. Underlying all of this is the understanding that everything I’m making is from hand-dyed yarns or fibres so I’ll also be developing my dyeing ideas too. In today’s video I also talk a bit about my favourite colour themes of the year… including my current obsession with rusty oranges and deep teals.
