February Friday Night Sew-in and Giveaway!

Bobbi and I are hosting another Friday Night Sew-In for February and a Giveaway!!

Joining the Friday Night Sew-in is a way of setting some time aside to work on those projects on your to do list. And remember - it doesn't have to be a sewing project.. maybe you have a knitting project.. or some scrapbooking.. it could be anything.

So join Bobbi and I, Friday February 19th, for our monthly Sew-In.

Here are the "rules".
1. Enter your blog info below.

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 – 02/19/10 - 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 (or anything else that you want to work on).

4. Then, sometime on Saturday - Make a post about what you worked on.. show us a picture or two.

5. Optional.. grab the "Friday Night Sew-In" Button on the right for your own blog!

And finally - on Sunday 2/21, we will enter all participants into a GIVEAWAY for something fun! Maybe some fabric.. or a sewing gadget or two.

Paula said...

I'm certainly willing to try. As my Granny always said, Lord willing and the Creek don't rise!!!! I enjoyed the last one and got quite a bit done.

Holly Days Closet said...

I can hardly wait. Just need to figure out what I want to do crochet snowflakes or sew a apron or cut out squares for a quilt. Oh what to do, what to do.

Thearica said...

I missed January due to a trip to Bama so I hope to be here for february! :)

This will be a first for me. I love the idea of a virtual sew in!

I'm working on a post for my blog and will be sure to do a blurb about it.

Shirley--Knot-y Embroidery Lady said...

Yup! Count me in. I have plenty to work on. Thank you for doing this. My DH is still teasing me about needing an intervention - see my post about The Friday Sew-In to know what I am talking about. It was fun to share about it in the classes I teach, and laugh about how much fun it was. Hopefully some of them will join in.

Will see you and guys then. Muffin will be with me. I'll be in my jammies and have my hot tea with me. Can hardly wait.Bye

This sounds like a great idea. I've blogged about it, now to get organized and figure what to do. Maybe a pattern for a tunic and it can be included with the Pattern Challenge I joined too at

Molly said...

What a cool idea! I always feel kind of kinda lame when I stay home and sew on Friday nights (the whole party night thing lingers from my youth). Now I have a great reason! I'm in a sewing party!!

I'm glad I traveled around blogland this morning and found your little corner.

Sue said...

I had a fun night in January....especially when I got the right date (I was originally a week early lol) and am looking forward to next Friday....I double checked the date! lol Thank you both for taking the time to organise the night.
