April Friday Night Sew-In Signups are HERE!!

It's that time again! Time to join Bobbi and I for the monthly FNSI! Let's commit to some sewing time.

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 – 4/15/11- 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 4/17/11, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!!

Marianne, aka Ranger Anna said...

This will be my last Friday Sew In at home, so my boys are going up to the lake and my girl friends are coming over for the weekend to mess around the whole time! Who knows if we'll actually get anything done or not, but it will be fun!

Amanda said...

This is a great way to end the week and take my mind off of all the money I just paid to Uncle Sam! :)

Leah said...

Love the new button...

Unfortunately I probably won`t get to sew... I start the day with my son`s Pipe Band performance downtown, and then to school to get ready for our Fun Fair, if I get lucky I`ll make it home in the afternoon, then once picking the kids up, some last minute setup for the Fun Fair and the Fun Fair is from 5-9PM, then CLEANUP!

I`m guessing I`ll be exhausted, so no sewing for me...

Jenniffier said...

I wish I could join, but I am out of town again. I hope everyone has a great time, I will be looking forward to seeing what every one accomplishes!

Does sewing in thread ends count? Cos that's what I'll be doing. Hope I can get a bit of embroidery done on "My Town" BOM from Homespun. Fingers crossed and I can't wait

Michelle said...

I hope I'm not too late, I wasn't sure if I would be able to join in or not, but I'm here now, it's 8pm and I'm snuggled up sewing the binding down on a quilt!

Jindi's Cottage said...

It's Friday Night here already on this side of the world but I wasn't sure I'd be home for FNSI and yay yes I am...so I'm in...quick tea eaten, snacks purchased (gotta have chocolate), time to pick up needle and thread...

I'll be at my machine putting together my 4th Turning Twenty quilt, which is my go-to pattern for college grads. Using the Calypso line by Free Spirit....love it!

Such a great idea. I have been missing my time at the machine. This will be a perfect incentive. Happy Friday night sewing.

Just found your site and this gives me an extra excuse to sit and sew tonight. Hope everyone has fun and can't wait to see what everyone has been up to.

Farm Girl said...

Can't wait until this evening to start stitching'

stitchedbyme said...

I almost forgot to sign up! I have been going through all of the boxes in the sewing room trying to organize and keep I finding UFOs. Some of them might be part of FNSI this time, but I also have a huge list of projects that I would love to start (and ideally finish!).
Either way, I will be sewing right along with the rest of you tonight!

Karen said...

I'm a Friday Nite Sew-In virgin! it's my first time :o) Hubby is going out and I've taken the kids and dog for a long walk, so hopefully this evening will be a peaceful one!

I will be binding a quilt, perfect!

Kristen said...

How fun...Now what to work on? :) I have so many, many things.

I'm excited about this! It's my first one :-) What a nice way to end a hectic week. Now I just have to decide which project to work on, in my comfy jammies of course :-)

Kristen said...

It turns out my Friday night just got free...and I couldn't be happier! I'm getting everything all ready for FNSI! Yay!

kayleighinstitches said...

This will be my first. And hopefully not my last. Have a quilt I could work on and a table runner. :)

I have linked and I have no idea what I will be sewing, or unsewing, as the case may be. probably still prepping the wedding dress.

Marg said...

Nearly forgot about FNSI and nearly forgot to link too.

NuJoi said...

Thinking about sewing, but not actually doing any yet.

Joan said...

I was there sewing last night - but am a pit late posting.. No phots of the labels and 'sleeve; I had done... but there I was :)

Kristen said...

Is there a link to the Flickr group...I'm new and must be missing something...or extremely tired. :)

Natasha said...

I am still new to flickr...is the group's name FNSI? Will it be easy to find...or can you set up a link?

Thanks,

Madelyn said...

Flickr group is here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/fnsi/

I didn't do much sewing last night. I was really tired so I did better with some knitting.

Regena said...

I blogged and flickred!!

Jodi said...

I've updated my blog and setup a Flickr account and added the photos from my time last night. Thanks so much for setting this up!

Val said...

I checked to see if I was on the list and evidently I failed to add my name. I did participate last night though and have posted about it. Love those FNSI's.

Kathy T. said...

I had the perfect quick and easy project for the Sew-In and got it done! That's a wonderful thing ...

creativeinstincts said...

Got a quick mug rug done as i was feeling a little unwell. But couldn't bear the fact that everybody would be sewing away happily while I will be in bed ;-)
-Leena

Sew Magic said...

I just found this neat place. Sounds like you guys have a lot of fun!! Can't wait until next Friday.

This sounds incredibly fun! I've gone through my scraps and have a few projects in mind just for the FNSI...maybe I'll actually finish some projects and I'm looking forward to making new friends here.
