Do you have an uncuttable fabric in your stash? Myra and I sure do. In episode 136 of That Sewing Blab Myra
asked viewers if they had any uncuttable fabrics and to share photos and the story behind them with us using the hashtag #2Cool2CutTSB. We also shared some of our uncuttable fabrics and
asked for suggestions as to what we might do with them - if forced. ;) Want to join the challenge, or offer a pattern suggestion? Share photos of your
fabric, and we might feature it on the March 12th episode of the live video podcast That Sewing Blab.
All you need to do is:
Post a photo of your fabric with the hashtag #2cool2cuttsb to
Instagram or on the That Sewing Blab Facebook Group
tag Myra @onesewsweet and I @duellingdesigns
Please let us know in the comments if it is okay for us to use your photo on the show.
We would love to know the story about your fabric. In the That Sewing Blab's FB GROUP you can get a badge for the challenge, and give other people suggestions on what they can do with their 2 Cool 2 Cut fabrics as well in the group.
In November we asked viewers of the show to fill in a questionnaire listing their favourite sewists and sewing related companies in various categories. We had a fabulous response from our lovely viewers. On December 11th we will dedicate a whole episode of That Sewing Blab to cover the TSB Viewer's Choice Awards. On the night viewers will vote for the favourite out of the finalists. * Here is the link for the live show!! To watch the replay, please visit the Duelling Designs YouTube channel where all our replays can be found.
There so many talented people in the sewing community and it has been fabulous to recognize their hard work on the show. Although there will be a winner in each category it ends up that we are the true winners, as we get to revisit some of our favourite sewing personalities and learn about new ones too. I am thrilled to have learned about a bunch of new talented people to binge-watch their videos and read their blogs. I think I am guaranteed to be inspired in 2019 and I hope you will be too!
The pdf document below is a document listing everyone who was nominated and their links so you can find them online.
*Why did we vote twice? Viewers voted once in the survey and once on air, why? Unfortunately, you cannot add names into the polling feature on the platform we hold the live show on, Crowdcast. You can only vote in a multiple choice fashion.
That Sewing Blab will be featuring the, “So You Think You Can Sew” contest on our weekly LIVE shows from September through to November. Join us as talented sewists go head-to-head in
sewing challenges. Watch the show live so you can vote for the winners of each round.

How Does the competition Work? Closed until July 2019
The So You Think You Can Sew competition will take over That Sewing Blab for the first and third Tuesday of the month (September-November). On the first show of the month, we will introduce the contestants and they will open the packages we sent them earlier in the mail that contain the mystery item they must use for the challenge.
The third Tuesday of the month they return to reveal the garments they have made using the mystery item. They discuss their creative process, and how things went during the construction of their garment. The audience will then vote (live) for their favourite garment.
The winners of round one and round two then face off in the finals (in November)following the same format as the months prior. The winner of this round will be the winner of the Sew You Think You Can Sew competition.
Contestants for Season Two:
The contestants for the first round of the Sew You Think You Can Sew competition were Patrice Johnson and Tisa Taylor. The second round featured Andréanne and Katelyn. The finals saw Andréanne and Patrice competing with Patrice winning the finals.
