Thanks to everyone who participated, or is still participating, in our Bomber Jacket Sew-Along. We have been absolutely blown away by the jackets you made.

Our next sew-along will be in the spring. Fall sew-alongs tend to focus on one specific pattern, and spring sew-alongs are more broad in nature. For example, last spring we all sewed shirtdresses. What should we sew next?! If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments section.
