Happy Friday! Quite a few sales, contests, and tours started this week. EYMM has a Daddy & Me themed tour, Designs by Call Ajaire is celebrating a one-year anniversary, and much more can be found on the list.
Every Friday Sew 20 organizes a round-up of blog tours, contests, sales, milestones, and other information relevant to those active in the sewing community. If you have anything planned over the next few days (or weeks) be sure to contact Sew 20 and I’ll put it on the list.

Paneled Sunsuit Anniversary
Brought to you by: Designs by Call Ajaire
Dates: Ends July 6th
Long story short, my family and I are going to Punta Cana at the end of this month, so I have challenged myself to sew 12 garments in 12 days, and I would love for you to join in. I posted this challenge on Instagram, but I am posting it here too and will choose 2 winners (one on IG and one on FB). Here’s what you need to do to participate:
1. Sew 12 garments before July 6th which is when I return from my trip and will choose the winner. They can be super easy garments like yoga skirts, swim cover ups or PJ shorts!
2. Post photos of your completed garments daily or every other day, whatever your speed might be, and tag the photos with #12garments #pattyyoung
3. Share this challenge with friends and family so they too can participate! Follow @pattyyoung on Instagram for extra entries.
On July 6th, I will scour the internet for your 12 garments and choose 2 winners… one on IG and one on FB. Each winner will receive a box full of Acorn Valley Fabric… my newest line for Riley Blake! Happy Sewing!!!
