May is here so it’s time to announce the June challenge and you should know by now what that means!
It’s Indie Pattern Month time!
We’ve been working really hard organising for this major Monthly Stitch event since January – that’s how long it takes to decide on competition themes, contact all our fabulous potential sponsors and squeal over the amazing goodies we get to give away for the whole month of June!
Every year (this is our 4th IPM!) we say it will be bigger and better than ever…and this year, as always, it totally is!
FOUR competition themes
THREE super secret surprises
TWO pattern swaps
ONE bonus competition!
This year our competition themes are all based on your feedback so we hope you love them as much as we do.
That’s the full extent of your teaser, stick around for more details over the next few days 😉
Indie Pattern Month cannot happen without our amazing sponsors. Every year they are super generous and throw their support behind The Monthly Stitch and our wonderful Collective, that’s you guys!
We have some returning sponsors this year and also lots of new ones to keep things exciting!
Let’s check out who they are:
All these fabulous sponsors have contributed to our amazing prize pool and some of them have also offered discount codes which we will announce in a couple of days.
As with every year, it you’re not into sewing contests that’s quite ok! Indie Patterns are still the overall June challenge and we’d love you to sew and share your indie pattern projects with us on the blog.
Leading up to June we will also run the pdf and envelope pattern swaps that were so popular last year. Details will be posted tomorrow about how to sign up and the rules. It’s a great chance to discover new patterns and challenge other members.
Keep checking back here over the next few days for more information including the competition themes, discount codes, and the prizes! 🙂
Oh yes, and of course a super secret announcement around mid-May that we are exploding with excitement about!
We’ll also be launching our dedicated IPM2016 page to help you keep up with all the details.
So, how excited are you? Which sponsors are your favourites? What competition theme do you hope to see announced in the next few days?
