Friday Night Sew In signups for 6/17/11

this months Friday Night Sew In is NEXT friday.....June 17th.  Below is the signup list.  Here is a refresher of the directions:

The Friday Night Sew-In is a virtual get together hosted by myself and my cousin HEIDI
(aka  handmadebyheidi)


We try to schedule the FNSI the 3rd Friday of each month. Here are the participation guidelines.


1. When the sign-ups are posted - add your name to the list with a link to your blog.

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 the night of the FNSI - 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.

The name of the Flickr group is FNSI.


Each month we giveaway something awesome to one lucky participant.. some times we select 2 people.

cant wait to "see" you next friday night!  dont forget.....its NEXT friday night.  JUNE 17

I am cleaning my sewing room right this minute so that I will have a clean workspace for FNSI. I am looking forward to next week.

Sandra :) said...

Thank you - I had already tentatively booked next Friday night for this, and now I get to pick out my project(s), wooooooohoooooooooo!! Tonight I learned how to use my new embroidery machine (although I certainly have a lot more to learn!) so an embroidered project might just be in the works!

I've seen the light... and then I bought it so now I can really get into FNSI as it makes the room so much brighter and everything look so clear :).
