The APEXcarry has been a hugely popular pattern and, with the first stage starting on the 14th April, I’m going to host a fun sewalong in week-by-week stages to get us all summer-bag-ready here in the northern hemisphere!!

Further south @sunkissmelbourne will be co-hosting and together we’ve planned a fun few weeks full of inspo, discounts and prizes!!! Yes, prizes!!! Whooop!!!!

Over the course of the sewalong we’ll giveaway spot prizes that can be won by those of you get on board and share your progress. We’ll tell you how to do all that!

An amazing thank you to the following amazing bag sewing enablers for sponsoring some cool prizes!!!


From now ‘til the end of the sewalong I’ve set up a sale with a 20% discount off both the APEXcarry and the APEXpouch patterns and 10% off the APEXbundle too!! No code needed.

Right now SunKissMelbourne have 10% off their APEX Kits using the code “APEXSEWALONG“! and ATELJEE CARO also have a 10% discount running with the code “sewalong_ICS“.

So, are you in??? Declare your intention and there is no backing out!!

Okay, so of course you can bow out, life gets in the way of many wonderful intentions. But it’s good to say things out loud sometimes, right? Share the picture above in your Instagram stories or as a post using #APEXsewalong & tag @incompletestitches and @sunkissmelbourne to let us know that you plan on joining in!! And don’t worry, you don’t have to be the best sewist or best photographer; just join in and have some sewing fun! All prize winners will be picked at random, but remember to tag us so that we see you!!

Stage 1 starts on 14th April with a final celebration on the 15th May. Full schedule and sewalong details to come but see the schedule above for the idea!
