What is NeedleWorkMonday?

#NeedleWorkMonday has been the go to tag for the needle arts for the past year on Steemit. It was founded in July of 2017 by @crosheille. She was later joined by @crystalize who took on the role as Co-Chair helping her to invite other needleworkers, organize and fund community projects, contests and giveaways as well as with curation. It started as a tag to help needleworkers find one another and share their work together on the Steemit platform. More and more needleworkers began using the tag which led to a community being born of over 40 active members that enjoy sharing their work every week. Today we introduce to you our new communal account: @needleworkmonday

Every Monday we get together and share our creations, patterns, tips, ideas, tutorials and shortcuts. We strive to support, inspire and motivate one another. If you read through the comment section on #NeedleWorkMonday posts you will see tons of encouraging remarks. Many have said #NeedleWorkMonday is the reason they decided to stay on this plattform because it made them feel at home by meeting people with like passions and interests.

Our Goal

We know that needlework is not the most popular category on this plattform but we are determined to change that. We want to fill up the Steemit blockchain with beautiful handiwork and inspire more Steemians to give this form of art a try. We are here to promote all forms of needle art!

What You Can Expect

We encourage needleworkers to share the process of their work with pictures to allow you to see how a project comes to life. When you see a project you may not know how much work was involved or all of the steps it took to complete it. Some handmade creations take hours, days and even weeks to complete. There is a lot of planning, frogging (taking stitches out and starting over), practicing, rough drafting and trial and error going on while creating these types of arts.

When you view a post with the #NeedleWorkMonday tag you can expect to see how some of the projects were created. Not only do we spend a lot of time on our projects but we take the time to make fun, quality and informative posts that displays our work.

Community Projects & Challenges

As of today we have completed two community projects. The first project was ‘Project NICCU Warmth’ where needleworkers crocheted, knitted or sewed preemie hats to donate to a NICCU near them. The second was ’Project Warm A Soul’ where the needleworkers used their skills to make scarves and placed them outside in the public for someone in need of warmth to grab.

We believe it’s important to use our skills and talents to give back to our community and to individuals in need. We plan to do more community projects where we challenge needleworkers to use their specific specialties to enrich the lives of others.

Contests & Giveaways

We love hosting contests! These are a great way to reward our members for their hard work. It takes great effort to create these handicrafts let alone taking the time to post about them. Members will be paid SBD rewards when they place in our contests.

We will randomly do ”just because” SBD giveaways. When you show others you appreciate their contributions it encourages them to continue contributing and doing what they love to do. We want to encourage the needlework community to keep posting their original quality work to share with the Steemit world!

Curation & Resteems

Needlework posts will be curated using this account. Several posts will be Resteemed on Monday to give them more visibility on the plattform and to showcase what our members are creating with their hands. The main focus of curation will be for the needlework arts!

How To Join

If you are someone that does any of the needle arts listed above we’d love to have you join us. Please use the #NeedleWorkMonday tag when posting about your work so we can find you. Also give us a follow so you won’t miss out on any upcoming projects, contests or announcements.

If you are an investor or looking for projects to delegate SP to, please consider @NeedleWorkMonday! We are passionate about keeping the needle arts alive and inspiring others to dive into this world of handmade creations. All earnings from @NeedleWorkMonday will go back to needlework content creators.

If you ever needed a button sewn back on a favorite shirt or ever snagged a thread on your go to sweater you’d understand the importance of basic needle and thread knowledge. Statistics shows that 60% of people do not know how to sew on a button which is a basic sewing skill. Together we can inspire this upcoming generation to pivot their interests into learning some handy skills that will be useful to them in their everyday lives.

Saludos! acabo de conocerlos, y me encanta el trabajo que están haciendo en apoyo a todos los amantes del arte manual, no tengo dominio de idioma ingles y solo he hecho publicaciones de mis trabajos en español, asi como varios tutoriales. Le deseo muchos exitos! y espero me poder comenzar a publicar los lunes con su etiqueta. Acá esta uno de mis mas recientes trabajos para que me conozcan :) https://steemit.com/spanish/@irenenavarroart/tutorial-perro-pug-amigurumi

Hola @irenenavarroart! Gracias por compartir ese enlace. Tu costura es muy hermosa. Nos encantaría que compartieras con nosotros. La mayoría de nuestros miembros hablan inglés, pero también tenemos algunos trabajadores de costura que hablan español. Por lo general, traducen su publicación al inglés. ¿Es esa una posibilidad para ti de hacer ambas cosas? Puedes hacer un párrafo en español y luego traducirlo al inglés para que podamos conectarnos mejor contigo :) Me encanta que hayas compartido el proceso de tu trabajo porque recomendamos que todos lo hagan. ¡Espero verte el lunes!
