______________________________________________________________________________

I started a monthly Sewcial Calendar back in January 2014 (first post here). Two years later I took a break because there was at least two other monthly calendar's of all sewing challenges and sew-alongs more thorough than mine. One of them - Swoodson Says - decided not to do it this year and asked for someone who would host it. I immediately said yes! I was actually thinking about getting back to it this year, so this was very timely! 

So, here it is! Have fun!   

Please send me an email to mail.sarahandmade[at]gmail.com if you know of any other event I may be missing. I will be more than happy to add it here!
