#SeptTextileLove – the prompts for 2020!

This year’s celebration of textiles starts tomorrow!

The prompts are here and also on our Instagram page @seam_collective – we hope you will enjoy our selection for this year. If you are feeling organised you can also download our pdf planner.

There is a different prompt for each day in September. As always, you can respond to as many prompts as you wish on Instagram – they are all about sharing a different aspect of your love of textiles each day. Each prompt can be interpreted in many different ways – just don’t forget to use the hashtag #SeptTextileLove so we can find your posts!

#SeptTextileLove is open to everyone who loves textiles, and has an Instagram account, from all around the world; from those who have just started making, to makers for family and friends, to enthusiasts, to professionals. We are looking forward to seeing gorgeous photos of your work, getting to know you and your textiles, and having some interesting conversations about textiles and perhaps how the way you work has changed this year.

Our prompts this year include old favourites, some new prompts that we can’t believe we have missed before like tools and stash, some for sharing like discoveries and recommendations, some that may prompt conversations about lockdown (but don’t have to), like lockdown, temporary / permanent, uncertainty, and some that we hope will help us all get to know each other better like challenges, disappointment and guilty pleasure!

We can’t wait to see how you interpret our prompts – we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
