Planning this Sew Along Masterclass for next year. Now is your chance to give me your opinion on what you want to learn and help me find the dream!
2018 Sew Along Masterclass
I have been working behind the scenes for several months planning my blog content for the next year. It’s been a whirlwind battle, one that I have finally won and mastered.
It hasn’t been an easy journey.
At first I wasn’t even sure I would be blogging next year. Growth on the blog has been slow and I am frustrated with the way things have been going the last couple of years. The millions of followers that I expected to have when I began blogging 8 years ago just aren’t there despite the considerable time and effort that I put into this business.
I even started looking for full time apparel design jobs, which I haven’t done since 1994.
There were even full time job interviews. Several of them. However, in the long run I decided that I just can’t go back to working for a large corporation just yet.
Finishing the Blogging Dream
It’s hard to give up on a dream. This blogging dream isn’t finished yet. When I started this blog so long ago I always had the thought that I would go back to my fashion design roots at some point and become a fashion blogger. At the time I began writing in 2009, it seemed like growing my following through home decor would be the hard part, and becoming a fashion blogger at some point in the future would be an easier thing to do once I was established. Fashion is something I understand.
Now is the time to see where this dream goes, this blog journey is beginning anew. As a lifestyle branded blog, Designers Sweet Spot has the potential to not only be a home decor brand, but also fashion brand as well. A few months ago, I launched a new pattern shop called Chambray Blues.com. This domain is where you can purchase my original sewing patterns, sewing supplies, fabric and video sewing tutorials (coming soon!).
