If you follow any sewing Instagram accounts you will probably have noticed a hashtag that has been doing the rounds the last week or so, you might even have done it yourself! #2017makenine came into being thanks to Rochelle New who decided to post her plans for 2017 and encouraged others to do the same. It has been so inspiring to see what everyone is planning to sew over the coming months so I wanted to get in on the action!
I've had some really lovely feedback from customers who were as excited to receive their boxes as I was to pack them up and ship them off. A few people have already made some lovely items with the contents of their boxes and posted them on Instagram, there may have been some squeals from me when I saw them. Don't forget if you post a picture on social media to tag me in the comments and also to use #sewhayleyjanemakes so that I can see everything.
So last Wednesday we were finally able to open up subscriptions! Yay!! Oh my gosh I was so excited but also really very nervous that I was going to hear crickets. A lot of hard work has gone into getting this ready but I was preparing myself for it to take a while before anyone clicked over and joined in my little party.
