Open Invitation to Crafters - #NeedleworkMonday

in art •  11 months ago

Please join us every Monday at #NeedleworkMonday for sharing and promotion of your handiwork!

Our initiative founder, @crosheille, created this community to "spread needlework art and get it displayed." She's onto something here, and this is a great opportunity for those of us who love the seemingly lost arts associated with needlework to share our gifts.

Who should participate:

People who:

  • Sew and are seamstresses
  • Crochet
  • Knit
  • Are ribbonwork artists
  • Make doll clothes
  • Embroider
  • Counted cross-stitch
  • Make costumes
  • Are textile artists
  • Make tatting
  • Make crewel
  • Make any art involving a needle

How to participate:

Every Monday, make a post of your creations past or present, and be sure to use the tag #NeedleworkMonday. It also wouldn't hurt to include the tag within the text or title of your post.

How you will benefit:

  • Meet others who share your passion for needlecrafts
  • Learn tips, patterns and techniques
  • Encourage and inspire others with your work
  • Be in an environment that supports your work
  • Get visibility to your work

The group #NeedleworkMonday has gotten pretty popular these past few months and more crafters are starting to share. Several of you who have in the past made posts about sewing, knitting, crochet, ribbonwork, and embroidery have already received direct invitations (via reply to your post) to join this amazing sub-community. We sincerely hope you will join in the fun and spread the word to other crafters about this fantastic and supportive community.

We look forward to seeing your submission on Mondays!

Hooray! It will be delightful to see your work on Mondays. So happy to have you!!!

My mother made me arm warmers just like those. I told her to just knit a sleeve and leave a thumb hole.
She gave me the matching leg warmer for Christmas.
She also made me a full length patch work knitted, hooded coat, that is something to behold 😂
I hope I remember to post on Monday.
I made an upcycled reversible messenger bag out jeans and a silk pillow case too, that I am very proud of.
I am new to the world or stitching.
Cool initiative.

I would love to see this jacket! All the credit goes to @croshielle for thinking of the initiative. I'm just boots on the ground and a contributor. Hope to see you on #NeedleworkMonday!

This is so great! I just came across this and I am so glad! I have been needing inspiration and a reason to dig out my craft stash. Resteemed and I can't wait for Monday!

Sweet! Thank you very much for sharing that with me!

I have sent this link to @azizbd. He is overseeing a group of women in Bangladesh who have started a textiles business to support their families.
I thought they might benefit from connecting with you.

Wow, thanks so much, @girlbeforemirror! We would be honored to have them! The #NeedleworkMonday initiative is so much fun for us lonely crafters. Hee!

Hey @crystalize . I am happy that you liked our work and also I am happy to engange with other comunity. if you consider I am expert in craft it will be wrong. But I have willing mind to support my community women who are underprivileged. My investment helping them to get training for free and also allowing them to get some fund so they can use the money for child education and other family needs. @girlbeforemirror is also part of the project through her great contribution and donation. I will discuss with her to know how we can involve with it. I also created my project account @womenempowerment to start work with it separately.

my another project @SchoolForSDG4 is a charity school. I will be happy to chat with you to know more about you and how we can help to develop women work. I am going back to chat with @girlbeforemirror. Thanks a lot.
Please ping me https://steemit.chat/direct/azizbd or let me know how I can find you.

Hi @azizbd! The #NeedleworkMonday initiative is a GREAT place for you (or the women you help) to post pictures and stories about the craft/sewing work that they do. Posting every Monday increases the chances of raising money for your wonderful effort. I will ping you on Steem.chat now. Thanks!

BTW, I fixed "@Croshellie" in the original blog post, and I'll start working the replies later tonight. It's the little things, with computers, huh!

Oh I see now...you put the “i” in the wrong place. It’s spelled crosheille. Thanks so much and I’m sorry you have to go and correct all of those, I wish I could do it for you. Yes it’s the little things 😩

What is this magical unicorn, @crosheille? Whatever it is, it must have taken time, money and effort and I appreciate it!

·

Oh I just have a little magic up my sleeve lol!!! It’s my pleasure and it is well deserved for all of your work. Before you helped me I would go through post after post to invite crafters and it took a lot of time. You making this post and extending individual invitations means a great deal to me, it helps out tremendously. It feels like we’ve been working together for years. You are truly appreciated ;) 💝

Sorry for all the bumps along the way--I was a little sleepy yesterday. LOL. So far, I think we have about seven affirmative responses, and hopefully more coming. I hope the fact that this Monday is Christmas doesn't discourage participation, but if so, we will pick them up again next Monday..because I'm going to post about it again next Sunday. Hee! It is my pleasure to help and I love your idea. We will build it!

·

·
·

No apologies at all, I totally understand. What matters is that you took the time to fix them all :D

Wow seven responses is awesome! Yes I do belive it’s possible we won’t see as many sharing this Monday...but ya never know. Wow that would be great to see you post again about it! I’m so excited to see this grow!! 🎉😄 Yay!!!

It is going to be amazing! Perhaps folks will take up needlework just to be a part of it. LOL!
