March Friday Night Sew-In.. Sign up now!!

The sign up for the Friday Night Sew-In is finally here!!! Join Bobbi and I for another fun FNSI!

Get your name on the list... commit to some me time.. work on those projects that are calling your name.

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 – 3/18/11- 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 3/20/11, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!!
