Friday Night Sew In signups for 2/18/11

Are you all excited for this months Friday Night Sew-In?  I know I am....ive been a craftin machine lately.  Teaching myself to crochet, a wood project in the works, a few behind the scenes swaps to do.  I have a huge list.....and need this night to give me the push to complete something. 

Heidi and I love doing these each month. 
2/18/11 is the date!

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 – 2/18/11- 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 2/20/11, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!! Heidi will be drawing the winner this month and sending the lucky person a box of goodies!

I'll be off to a cabin in the woods on Friday for the weekend. Will take my hand sewing with me and FNSI away, but won't be posting on Saturday - no internet service. No power either.

Teresa Felgueiras said...

I'n in. This is my first FNSI. See you next Saturday.

Marianne, aka Ranger Anna said...

Love this idea. In the past, my daughter and I have turned on iChat at our homes and sewed together while we were miles apart. It was fun--like being the new Nancy Zieman!

I'm also going to have some crafty girls my age (ahem) over in March for crafty days, since none of us can afford to go to retreats. I'm sending my DH and sons to hotel and us girls will stay here. Win-win!
