ASG joins with Specialty Pleaters once again, to bring you this AUSSEW-Along. Last time this sewalong was a circular skirt. This year it's a simpler version - a straight piece of fabric pleated into a yoke. A supply list will be emailed to you on Monday, 6th July.  Instructions will be sent to you at regular intervals over the following 8 weeks. You'll find all ASG podcasts on our website.
When lockdown took place in the UK, Susan Young felt like many of us. Paralysed by the quick changes we quickly had to make. This was coupled with lots of time on your hands but with restrictions to our previous lifestyle. Her blog posts contains many insights offered by the Sewover50 community. Did you know that when a post like this one on batch sewing was published on IG, comments flooded through for 36 hours. Make sure you join Sewover50 on Instagram today.

We're still in June and ASG members have had an absolutely fun time sewing toys this month. It's a bit different for members who would focus on clothing but this is the right time to simply sew for the fun of it. Have a look at their picture gallery. ASG transcripts are being produced to make their podcast more accessible and can be translated into any language. Subscribe to our podcast via Apple, Google, Stitcher, Spotify, Castbox, iHeartradio Podchaser, Luminary and on Libsyn.  
Susan Young continues discussing her Sewover50 blog post about the community's discussion about your fabric purchases. This episode goes into weighing up purchasing long lasting plastic-based fabrics against ‘natural’ fibres. Susan refers to her review of the Fashioned from Nature exhibit that took place at the V&A Museum exhibit a few years ago. We then discuss reduce, reuse, recycle. Make sure you read The Golden Thread-how fabric changed history by Kassia St Clair.
1,941 people attended Sewing Weekender online last week. They came from 37 countries. 23,610UK pounds were raised for NHS Charities Together, Mind Charity, Black Lives Matter and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust. Charlotte, Kate and Rachel of the Fold Line, took their local Sewing Weekender and made it available to everyone who wanted to be part of this sewing get-together. Chloe also updates us on the way Sewcialists is growing their sewing community engagement to continue to be inclusive.
This month ASG are running more workshops and they're all online too. The initial bound buttonhole workshops were free to members as the ASG tutors were getting used to using Zoom to run these workshops. Members also had this time to get used to using Zoom for workshops.  This experiment has really paid off, making ASG workshops more accessible to everyone globally. Louise chats to Maria about the new workshops that are filling up fast. Go to our podcast website to listen to previous ASG podcasts. Keep an eye out for the transcripts ASG are preparing so their podcasts are more accessible from this month onwards.
Fabric shopping part 1

Fabric shopping part 1

“How do you assess your fabric purchases? Is cheap fabric inferior, or can you sometimes find a genuine bargain? Does expensive always mean quality…and what does that mean? How do you weigh up long lasting plastic-based fabrics against ‘natural’ fibres that may gradually wear out but where ageing can add to the appeal of the fabric? The official blog writer for Sewover50, Susan Young of Susan Young Sewing, discusses the fabric purchase feedback and ideas followers of Sewover50 contributed on Instagram. Part 2 will go live next Thursday.  Make sure you go to their podcast post to catch up on all the Sewover50 podcasts.

Rebecca Ritchie, Head of Wardrobe Opera Australia was the keynote speaker at NSW Industry Day on 14 March 2020. The costumes Rebecca talks about are on the podcast website. The sound quality is taken while sitting in the audience so this is very faint. Rebecca discussed the process the team works through, bringing the initial sketches to the magical moment when they first appear on stage. From initial design sketches, through budgeting, sourcing fabrics from around the world, discussing with the cutter who determines how the costumes will be made, fittings with the artists and then working with a team of seamstresses to make the costumes. In June, we'll hear from the NSW Industry Day committee and what challenges they face developing these learning days for guild members.
