While many claim December to be “the most wonderful time of the year”, the sewing community will argue that May is easily their favorite time of the year for one very special reason — Me-Made-May! This month-long challenge is “designed to encourage people who make their own clothes to develop a better relationship with their handmade wardrobe.” What started as a personal challenge for maker Zoe Edwards, Me-Made-May is now in its eighth year and is an invitation to the entire sewing community to make a me-made pledge throughout the month. Whether it’s wearing only handmade for the entire month, reviewing your wardrobe and seeing where you need to fill the gaps, or even wearing the handmade dress that’s gotten buried in the back of your closet, there’s something for everyone.
