Are you ready to Recap?

It’s that time of year when we take the time to look back on all of our needlework achievements. We celebrate what was accomplished and also reflect on where we can improve.

When we take this time to remember all of the goals we’ve reached it helps motivate us to keep going. It reminds us that attaining our objectives is very possible.

We invite you to join our:

Year End Challenge!

We’ve come up with three different options for you to choose from to write about. If you’re feeling really ambitious you can write a little about each one into your publication.

Option #1:

Share about all of your needlework accomplishments in 2023 (skills learned, projects completed, supplies gained, goals met etc.)

Reflecting on the objectives we’ve attained can be very motivating reminding us what we’re capable of.

Option #2:

We’re all about encouragement and support in this community. Was there a particular member that inspired you greatly this year? We’d love to hear all about it.

Share about what inspired you and how it helped motivate you. Tell us if you used that inspiration to help further your work.

Option #3:

Tell us something you want to learn or accomplish for the upcoming year. Talk about what inspired this goal and how you plan to achieve it.



  1. Choose an option to write about from the above list. You can write about more than one option but only one entry (one post per entrant) will be qualified to receive rewards.

  2. Must follow posting guidelines as outlined in the FAQs.

  3. Must post your entry directly to the NeedleWorkMonday Community!

  4. Please include #yearendchallenge as one of your tags.

  5. Must leave a link to your challenge entry below in the comments of this post so we won’t miss it!

  6. Comment and support at least two entries in the contest.

Eɴтry Deαdlιɴe:

All entries for this contest are due in three weeks by Monday, January 1st!


The rewards for this challenge will be done a little differently.

With the payout from this post we will be distributing tips on your posts according to the quality and effort of your entry. You have the potential to earn a good tip on top of having your post nominated for an OCD upvote! 🤩

We are looking forward to reading your entries of Recap and Reflection!

Thank you for this wonderful challenge, @needleworkmonday - and thanks for drawing my attention to it... Soooooo much to share - we've been discussing during Kesityu's visit here, how to earth such a lot of sewing activity and visioning and ideas: this will be a great challenge to keep us grounded!


That is wonderful!! So glad this came very timely. I think it really helps to lay things out and look back at what we’ve accomplished. It truly does help us to stay grounded.

I am so excited to read everyone’s entry!! 😘
