ABC Challenge 2023

Welcome to 2023!

What are your sewing plans for this year? Perhaps consider the Sinclair ABC Challenge!

I first heard about the Alphabet Challenge last year when a post on the Sinclair Facebook Page informed us that you could ALMOST complete the challenge using Sinclair Patterns. We have 24 of the 26 letters, with only Q and U missing.

What is the challenge? Simple! Sew through the alphabet! There are no hard and fast rules, just a fun and casual challenge to motivate and inspire. We thought it would be fun to have our own Sinclair ABC Challenge. The plan (so far!) is to start with “A” and work our way through the year, ending in December. We will do two letters a month, in order, with sales to correspond with those letters. When Q and U are added to the line up we will slide them in, so there may be two months in the year where there will be an extra letter to sew up. The Q and U will be wild cards added to the mix whenever they are ready. Fun!

There is an ABC Album on the Sinclair Facebook group for you to add your photos to, as well as Instagram, and of course we always love to see your posts in this FB Group!

There is no pressure to add your two makes in the month as you can go back and add past letters at any time, but we ask that you don’t post for the challenge in advance as that will make it tricky to keep track for prizes. Late entries can be added, but will not be eligible for prizes.

Prizes! Yes! We will do a roundup post at the end of each month that will include some of the photos submitted to Instagram or the Facebook album. Those featured in the round up will receive a small gift. The Instagram hashtag is #SinclairABC and the Facebook album can be found by clicking on the media tab and selecting “albums”.

I am excited to get started and A gives us so many options! There’s the Amaya, Azalea, Alba, Alana, Adele, Apollo and the Alexis. I have started with the Alexis as this is a pattern that I’ve my eye on for a while. I made a cropped version, which was an easy hack. I'll be posting that in the album today 😀

For my B make I think I’ll try another new to me pattern, the Brooke. I love the look of the collar. I think it would make a really cute golf dress. I might need to take up golfing! But, if not the Brooke, there is also the Bondi, Betty, Beta, Bianca and Bella.

For the month of January all patterns that begin with A or B will be on sale for 20% off. You can find them here: ABC Collection!

We look forward to seeing your amazing makes!
