Member Update // Planning your Make Nine!
Happy New Year! After a quiet holiday rest, it’s been so enjoyable to see all the posts and discussions from makers gearing up for the year ahead. It’s carried me along on this wave of excitement… ready to hit the ground running into 2020 armed with ideas, projects, new skills to learn and eager anticipation to have fun making. Have you done any new year planning of your own? We hope you join us with our latest workshop now available at the School of SweetGeorgia… keep reading below!
Now Available // Plan Your Make Nine
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!
Click here to Plan Your Own Make Nine! We hope you’ll enjoy a fun year of exploring your creative side, and be sure to let us know how your process is going in the SweetGeorgia community forums! Happy making!
