SGDQ! – Summer Games Done Quick!


We are some of the few and lucky to be able to attend the Games Done Quick summer edition this year.

Gmaes Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level gameplay by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its seven-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. They are currently the largest fundraising event globally for both charities!

To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 14 million dollars for charity. They also average over 1800 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!  This year there are 2250 registered attendees, and WE ARE TWO OF THEM!!

Donna Handbag – Swoon Pattern – Blind Construction

Swoon Sewing Pattern’s Donna Vintage Handbag construction


I’m going in blind again!  Not having read the pattern, I’m going to see how easy or difficult it is without prep!

I’ve been wanting to make this bag for a couple months now, basically since I saw the pattern!  I have a custom print that I want to see if I can make for the outside panel, but there’s no way I’m going to use a custom panel the first time working with a new pattern!  I need to test this one out!

The first vintage pattern released in the Swoon Vintage Collection, Donna is a small 60’s inspired handbag. She features a cute exterior slip pocket, inside zippered pocket and handles perfect for wearing in the crook of the elbow, Jackie O style.
