And thus, the Sewing Through the Decades Challenge was born. The challenge will be for 11 weeks, broken up into decades. The challenge will start May 30th, so mark your calendars! What is the challenge? To sew a period piece from each decade. Each decade will run for a week, starting with 1900-1909. Sounds fun, right?!
I will be linking to some websites this next week with ideas to help inspire you. You can play along each week, or just play along when you can. You don’t necessarily have to stick to the decade going on that week. If you only get 2-3 things done in that whole time, that’s great! Share your pictures with everyone else!
Please help me spread the word! Grab your favorite button, and link to this post! Sewing Through the Decades will run from May 30th to August 14th.

I wish that I had some awesome prizes to offer. I wish that we could make it a fun contest, but honestly, with the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, I realized that I did it for my kids and that was really a lot of fun. Rather than be worried about winning anything, let’s just have a no pressure sewing experience (that’s not to say I won’t ever try a contest with this idea).
Leave a comment letting me know if you’d like to play along!
