Friday Night Sew-In December 10th

Well - the votes are in! We will be having TWO Friday Night Sew-in's this month. This first one will be December 10th (the next will be December 17th).

We all have a long "To Do" list of projects that need our attention. Let's get all those gifts made, wrapped and under the tree!

So if you are excited and want to participate in the Friday Night Sew-in this month.. here is how it works.

1. Enter your blog info below. **If you don't have a blog - you can enter the Flickr group link as your URL.

2. Make a post on your blog - letting all your readers know about the sew-in. Spread the word.. we could all use the virtual sewing support and encouragement.

3. On Friday – 12/10/10 - Get your house settled, put on your comfy jammies.. maybe make a cup of tea.. and sit down to work on some of those projects.

4. Then, sometime on Saturday - publish a post about what you worked on.. show us a picture or two on Flickr. There is a FNSI group on Flickr if you haven't already joined. Totally optional.

And finally - on Sunday 12/12, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!!

This is the sign up for DECEMBER 10th  (Dec 17th coming soon)

BTW, when is the second sew in cause the poll is definitely saying yes! Come on, you can tell us!

Becca Quilts said...

I'm looking forward to it. I'm determined to let nothing get in my way this month, as I've got Christmas presents to finish (okay, start :-))

Maria said...

Oh Heidi it's late and I made a boob boo. Can you please delete my e-mail address and just put in Maria. I am no 8.I tried and it would not work. thanks.

Lis said...

I've got some Christmas fabric postcards to finish so may still be doing those on 10th and then on the 17th I hope I'll be doing something non-festive but we'll see! Thanks for hosting two FNSIs this month, this could become a habit :)

Erica said...

I have so much to do! My daughter has a basketball tournament next week, so hopefully one of the games won't be scheduled for Friday night! I'm excited to have 2 FNSIs! Thanks so much!

Mary Lou Casada said...

Count me in again this month! November's was WAY successful for me (Quiltville's Mystery quilt, all of Step 1, YAY!!!), and looking forward to two in December!
Blessings,

It's my first sew-in, and I have a lot to get done. Hopefully I'll finish a quilt for a little guy I babysit, and baste another quilt for my own little guy. I have another quilt top in the works for my mom, shhhh, it's a secret!

snippetsandyarns said...

Hooray for FNSI! I love the extra motivation I have on those nights :-)

I'm planning to sign up for both nights. Hopefully I'll be able to get everything done, that way!

Rachel said...

Okay, I'm in! December 17 is the last day of school before Christmas break, so surely I can put aside the marking and sew for a while!

Janet said...

I have to work at the senior's Christmas dinner that night but I'll do my sewing in the afternoon while I'm cooking the turkey and ham :)

pinsandneedles said...

I'll be sewing! Thanks Heidi!

Hi, I've put my name down and try not to forget this time around.

Cindy said...

I am looking forward to locking myself in my sewing room and working on some projects! I have gifts to start! Please count me in both nights!

Cas... said...

I'm going to do this for sure! I have a few projects I want to complete before Xmas. This will encourage me to set aside the time.

dooddles said...

This is my first official join in on anything blog-land-wise. I have zero followers on my blog, but I will post a blurb just the same! :o) I am excited to be a part of this community of crafters.

spencers said...

I am looking forward to next Friday! Will have to start after a preschool Christmas program but still hope to cross some things off the list!

I'll be making my list and checking it twice!

Sandra said...

Sew much to do. Sew little time. Count me in!

Alex said...

I think I'm in for both dates! I have a lot to finish and am starting to panic!

kaye said...

I'm sewing as well--a project that's been plaguing me for over a year. Do we come back to this linky list to view the results?

Mrs A said...

Thanks Heidi, this will be a challenge to get some sewing done before christmas, but i have been putting off the FMQ, as im a scaredy cat! no excuses now!

Robyn said...

This time I can take a photo before the present has to be delivered. I think I'd better finish my first ever quilt for a start!

Sue said...

I'm here again. I hope I do better than last month when I sewed heaps but didn't get to blog it.

Debbie said...

what a good idea having two FNSI as I've got so many presents to finish! The biggest problem at the moment is coping with the heat - sorry to all those starting their cold winter, our summer in New Zealand has arrived early!

Wendy said...

yes I'm in! I'm taking the two afternoons (10th and 17th) off work too to make it an extra long sew in!

Kirsten said...

The timing works out beautifully! On the 10th I'll be participating in the Thimble Pleasures 9 Patch Challenge assembly party. And am inspired to continue on the 17th.

Joan said...

I will join in on both nights...I have done some tonight ...its up on my blog. 1.22am - and I am off to bed!
