2021 Sew Along for NYE

& Celebrate the New Year with Aurora

a new slouch bag style from Sallie Tomato!

New Year's Eve 2021 Sew Along

We’re joining together with Sallie Tomato again this year to bring you the event of the year! Count down to the New Year with Jessica Barrera and Ellen March, as they walk you through the NEW Aurora bag, complete with fun sewing-themed patches. Sign up before 11/15/21 to get $4 off your registration fee!


Last year, we worked through the Zelda bag in our first-ever New Year’s Eve Sew-Along. (That event is now available on-demand to watch at any time & you get the pattern for FREE!) We’ve made some improvements on the format this year, and plan to give you the same great content with fun special guests, too.

Many of you couldn’t stay up that late with us as we sewed ’til midnight. So this year we’re changing it up. The sew-along will begin LIVE at 12pm ET (note the time zone!). We’ll sew together for four hours, taking breaks to give away prizes and get caught up on the steps. Come in your pajamas or come as you are. Bring a mimosa or a coffee (or several) and plan to have a blast!

When your bag is complete, you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to plan your outfit to match Aurora, and then take her out with you that night. Don’t forget to snap a few pics and upload them to social media, tagging Sallie Tomato and Sulky. We want to see your renditions of this awesome bag!


Not only will you learn how Aurora comes together from the pattern designer herself, but you’ll also get the digital pattern absolutely FREE with purchase of the event!

You’ll also receive our NEW exclusive Sewist Patch Machine Embroidery Collection, which includes three fun freestanding patch designs all done in the hoop of your embroidery machine.

Don’t have an embroidery machine? No worries! We’ve created premade patches for those of you who love the design but can’t make it yourself!

Be sure to choose the correct kit type to ensure you either get the premade patch OR the machine embroidery supplies to make your own.
