This month’s theme is WHO ARE YOU? Introduce yourself to the Punk Frockers community with a garment. It could be a favorite pattern, fabric, style, finishing – whatever you think would give us some insight to who you are. Use the #pfWhoAreYou and tag @punkfrockers to be eligible for a prize!
In this episode, Jenny and Beverly introduce themselves and the podcast. The podcast will be a community sewing pod, with weekly episodes supporting a monthly theme. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible.
CLUE FOR OUR FIRST MONTHLY THEME!
We will announce a hashtag that participants can use to identify an entry into the contest. You can have multiple entries! There will be one random prize selected and one prize for the item that Jenny and Beverly think best represents the theme.
