Well, I’ll admit I’ve fallen off the blogging train yet again. Traveling was fun, but left significantly less time for fiber art than I’d thought. We’ve settled down now, and there’s lots to unpack, both physically and mentally. Happily, making is back at center stage of my life, and I can’t think of a better way to get back to blogging than jumping in to Slow Fashion October.
Slow Fashion October was such an incredible experience last year, that I’ve actually been thinking about it all year long. Here’s what I had to say last year:
Gearing Up for Slow Fashion October
Slow Fashion October Is Here!
Slow Fashion October: Less is More
Slow Fashion October: Love
Slow Fashion October: Worn
Slow Fashion October: Known
My goals for making this Slow Fashion October actually don’t really revolve around clothes, though they do revolve around textiles. I’ll talk about this more in my next post, but I’ve come to realize that my clothes aren’t the most important textiles in my life right now. Instead, I’m tackling the concept of fiber waste in another closet in my house: the linen closet.
