So we're going to do another thing and make life a little more interesting in our Facebook Group with a series of specially chosen daily conversation topics (starting next week) ... You've all seen Kristin's Watcha Makin' Mondays, but what about the rest of the week? Here's what we've come up with ...
Whatcha Makin' Monday:
What's on your cutting table? Things you're working on right now or have done over the last week. Doesn't have to be stretch (although bonus points if you're making something from my blocks/patterns).
Tuesday News Day:
What's the gossip in Fashion? Who's doing what show where? Who's just opened a new shop or launched a new line? Who just changed the dance sport rules to allow teenagers to show more cheek? It's about time we became a little more current.
New members greeting day ... Who just joined, where are they from, what do they do and why did they forget to bring cookies.
A little mash up of fashion history, no matter what it might be about. Maybe something I did in the past, maybe a period of time (I'm still working on the vintage designs btw), or maybe even a style that appears to be from the past but isn't (eg; steampunk) or something from the past about the future (eg; retrofuturism) ... oh god I'm getting a headache. Pretty much anything that someone has already done that we can look at and talk about in hindsight.
Friday's Pop Quiz:
So how do you think this is done? Were you paying attention this week? How do we overcome this problem? I'll try to make it a multiple choice poll type thing because, well, who doesn't like a good poll? But somethings may require you to take away an image I give you and draw lines on it and repost it back. I may even offer a prize for the best answer to really tricky pop quizzes!
Saturday Morning Funnies:
It's been a long week so we need a chance to laugh at all of our failings and especially at each other. This is going to be a day for fashion based memes and jokes. Maybe I'll even give you a topic and you can relate your funny stories about it ... eg; it all started to go wrong that day I ran out of bobbin thread just 6.32mm from the end of the seam.
No there's no Sunday ... you didn't miss it. Of course you don't have to wait until a particular day of the week to tell us what you're making, or link up a news article, or post a joke or even show us your grandmas 1920s neck to knee bathing suit ... you can do that anytime.
I probably won't do all of these every single week but I really do want to get all those lurkers out of hiding .... yeah you know who you are!
