Friday Night Sew-In for May 20th

The signup for the May 20th Friday Night Sew-In is finally here!

Keep in mind - it's not this coming Friday.. it's May 20th!! I know how anxious everyone is and don't want to confuse anyone.

Bobbi and I are excited about the prize this month. We are giving away the new book by Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister Designs called "3 Times the Charm". The book is from us.. but Barb and Mary have added 2 charm packs for the winner as well. YAY!!

If you are new and need the details on how the Friday Night Sew-In works.. click HERE for details.

Otherwise.. commit to some "ME" time and get your name on the list.
