It’s back for another year! #SeptTextileLove is the Instagram challenge for those who love textiles and it starts a week from tomorrow.
The full list of prompts will be shared on the seam blog on 31 August, ready for people to respond to from 1 September. If you like to plan ahead, you can see the prompts a week early by subscribing to the seam newsletter. The full list of prompts is shared with seam newsletter subscribers as an exclusive preview so they can get a bit of a head start (and there’s a #SeptTextileLove planner for subscribers to download too).
Who’s it for?
Anyone who creates or loves textiles can be part of #SeptTextileLove. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just started experimenting with textiles in lockdown, whether that’s as a hobby you’ve always been curious about, as an antidote to boredom or for your own wellbeing, or if you are a textile professional, it doesn’t even matter where in the world you are based; everyone is welcome to take part in the conversation.
How does it work?
For each of the 30 days of September there is a different textile-related prompt for you to interpret on your Instagram feed. You can respond to as many of the prompts as you wish, this could be only a few or it may be all of them. The only requirement is that you include the hashtag #SeptTextileLove so seam, and everyone else involved, can find, like, comment on and share your posts!
Follow the seam blog to ensure you receive the prompts on 31 August, ready to start in September.
If you’d like to start thinking about the prompts ahead of the challenge and prepare a few responses, subscribe to the seam newsletter and you’ll receive the full list of prompts one week before they’re publicly released. You’ll also receive the link to download the prompt planner too.
During the challenge, follow the hashtag #SeptTextileLove to find and be inspired by posts from the other participants.
