January Friday Night Sew-In.. Signups finally here!

Boy oh boy... January has FLOWN by this year! Bobbi and I were just talking and can't believe that the next FNSI is just days away!!

We are so ready for the Sew-In this coming Friday!

So if you are as excited as Bobbi and I and want to participate in the Friday Night Sew-in this month.. add your name to the list below!

If you are new and need to know how it works.. here are the details:

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 – 01/21/2011 - Get your house settled, put on your comfy jammies.. maybe make a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine.. 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 01/22, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!! Bobbi will be drawing the winner this month and sending the lucky person a box of goodies!

Number 2? Wow, usually i'm like one of the last to sign up!

For once I have tons of projects to work on, and tons of inspiration to work from!

YAY!

Rachel said...

Hurray! I was hoping you'd bring the FNSI back! Count me in - I've got LOADS of projects to work on this year :)

mickey said...

I've never tried a FNSI but I was determined to do so this year-- so here goes! Hopefully by Saturday I will figure out the link to Flickr part!

Becca Quilts said...

I'm in :-). I've got a 3 of my 5 January goals left to do still, so I've got plenty to keep me occupied.

heleen said...

This will be first FNSI. I'm looking forward to it.

Rachel's Quilts said...

Can't wait! Already told the husband he has the kids for the night.

Judy said...

Count me in! I really need to get my signature stars done. I have all the fabrics cut out - just need to get them together!! That's my plan for Friday!

Robyn said...

Oh yay, I've been organising my to-do's into bagged lots so I can just grab and sew.

pinsandneedles said...

I'll be ready!

Musical Maggie said...

This is all new for me but I think it should be fun. Might even give me a boost to get going on one of my many projects waiting for me.

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to post something on my blog about it?

Sarah C said...

I signed up but I doubt I will do much sewing as it is my birthday. Maybe I'll get a little in.

Jamie said...

I so hope this will work. I'll have to rent my older boys a video and pray that the babe will be happy! I can't wait to sew something!!!!

dooddles said...

I love FNSI! It holds me accountable, something I desperately need. :o)

Melissa Clifford said...

Hi Heidi,
I'd love to join. I will add myself through Mister Linky in a few days if I can get my blog header to work. Right now, only half of it shows up. Ugh. I did join FNSI on Flickr as a back-up. But would rather also roll out a new blog :>) Will try! Sounds like FNSI is great fun!

Theresa said...

I missed the December ones so I'm looking forward to this :)

Impera_Magna said...

I need something to hold my feet to the fire and finish up the current quilt top project... even tho I'll have to work Saturday morning b/c it's a snow make-up day.

deborah said...

I've got so much to sew and quilt before the big sale at my LQS on Super Bowl Sunday:)) That is the only way I can justify what I want to buy...so I'll be sewing and quilting all day Friday!

Brenda said...

I have joined you one time before and I enjoyed setting that time aside just to sew. I have a project that I am hoping to get done this week, so I will get ready to sew!

Denise :) said...

Yay! This works out perfectly -- my DH is on shift, so it will make a GREAT sew-in night! :)

Marybeth said...

Looking forward to it!!

I so enjoyed the last FNSI! It got me back in the mood of sewing! Thank you both for your inspiration!

jamleft said...

From Janet
Yeah! I am glad that FNSI is here. I have several things to get completed and off the cutting table. It is going to be slow cooker day for me so I can get out of the kitchen early.

Jess in Progress said...

So I promise I will actually get something done this time :) Pregnancy has been getting the better of me for a few months but I really want to work on some unfinished projects after I moved my sewing room from what is going to be the baby's room this week.

Cheryll said...

So glad to have AnOtHeR excuse to go sewing!!! yeh !!! :)

Janet said...

It seems like it has been a long time. I'm looking forward to Friday.

Crafty Maine Mom said...

The best part about FNSI is that I get motivated to finish at least one project. I have a bunch of Bee blocks that i really need to get done.

Thanks for hosting this. :)

Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage said...

I read about your sew-ins last month. I really wanted to join you; but, because I was delivering the newspaper at 2:00 in the morning, bedtime was 7:00 pm. I no longer work that job.

I get to join you this month. I'm so excited. I just had my machine repaired. I don't even know what I'm going to work on yet. I guess I have a couple of days to figure it out.

God bless you all!

I happened on your blog and thought what a great way to get a couple of UFO's finished! This sounds like a lot of fun.

Lis said...

Looking forward to FNSI. I'll be working on my to do list - a sampler quilt that needs quilting! I've done 4 out of 20 blocks so far so roll on FNSI. I must try not to get chocolate on the fabric though.

Madelyn said...

It's a new year. Time to get back into the swing of things. Happy sewing.

Natasha said...

So excited to be doing this again!!!

lenoirdenantes said...

I always look forward to FNSI! It is so much fun to know that others are sewing along with me.

My project this month is to finish the Penguin quilt top for my coworker. I plan on tieing it rather than quilting it.

If there is time after that I need to make a vest to celebrate Valentines Day.

Teresa said...

To quote my son's fav TV character SpongeBob, "I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready....."
Can you tell what we've watched TOO much of lately?
Yes, I am gathering UFO's. So a Friday night sew-in is what I need. Count me in!

My December plans fell through with unexpected company and events :( So, this Friday is ON!! I'll be sewing all night! Need some chocolate!
