Signup for August Friday Night Sew-in!!

Finally - the signups for August FNSI are here!!!! Bobbi and I are hosting another Friday Night Sew-In on August 20th!

If you are in the "summer sewing slump" then this is the perfect opportunity for you to get motivated!

Most of you already know the drill.. but for any newbies out there.. here is how it works.

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 – 08/20/10 - 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.. maybe you want to knit.. or catch up on scrapbooking).

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

And finally - on Sunday 8/22, we will enter all participants into a GIVEAWAY for something fun! (Including our new FNSI Pin Cushion) Bobbi and I both pick winners - so you each will have 2 chances to win!!

What are you waiting for... SIGN UP.. then tell ALL YOUR FRIENDS!!!

Alex said...

Oooh second! I'm usually always late!

Marybeth said...

Sounds like fun!

Poppyprint said...

I SEW need to participate next Friday! Thanks for the kick in the pants, gals.

Janet said...

I'll be there! Can you clarify though for me please. Are we supposed to post pics on our blog or on Flickr?

Miss 376 said...

The last month has gone so quickly, looking forward to next week

orchidlover said...

Yeah finally a FNSI that I can take part in as hubby will still be away working.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Robyn said...

No Summer slump here as it's Winter but it's still a slump. Haven't even finished off item from the last Friday Night Sew In!

Kerry said...

Can't wait for the fun to begin, even managed a night off work this time so I can sew along with everyone else. Should be perfect sewing weather around here- we're mid winter.

crafty pug said...

can't wait! better get dinner cooked and in the freezer ready to go :)

Sandra said...

I have a project in mind already!

Maria said...

Looking forward to joining all the folk for FNSI on the 20th Aug.
Thanks Heidi and Bobbi

Cheryl said...

Missed out on July's FNSI . I was afraid the same thing would happen in August. I got lucky. I'll be in town so I will join in. Thanks Bobbi and Heidi for hosting.

CupCakeCutie said...

ooo I want to participate so badly but it always seems to be on a night when something is going on that I just CANNOT get out of. My brother is moving into our house that day. Doubt I will get much done that evening other than catching up with him. Good luck to all who participate though. Can't wait to see pictures.

Libby said...

My sweet daughter just went back to college so I need some good "take my mind off of it" sewing!!
Thanks!

pinsandneedles said...

Missed last month because of vacation...I'm ready this month!

Deanna said...

I'm makin' plans and preppin' fabric and basically getting pretty happy about the possibility of sustained sewing time.

Jackie said...

I read about the FNSI after it was over. Sounds like fun, I'm looking forward to it!

Jess in Progress said...

So excited! The 20th is my last day at my job (I start a new one 23rd) but I can't think of a better way to celebrate! Thanks for organizing :)

Joyful Quilter said...

I'm warming up the sewing machine now.

Denise said...

I've been busy working outside so by Friday Night I will be more than ready to get some sewing done.

Peg said...

I just had to sign up - even though I won't actually be home on the 20th to actually sew that day or evening (going on a bus trip) - but I'll do my sewing on Saturday, and post that evening, then I get to catch up with everybody else on Sunday - happy, happy sew-in!!

alethia said...

Looking forward to next friday night.

Granny J said...

This is the motivation I need to get busy on a project that I've been putting off. Now I need to learn how to post pictures on Flickr. lol

SheilaC said...

I would love to sew this Friday!!

See you there

SheilaC

That Leini Girl said...

My hubby & I will both be joining!!

I love these FNSIs!!

Quilter_Momma said...

I am Elena's husband and this is the 2nd FNSI I will have participated in.

FNSI nights were an awesome idea, as it lets us catch up on projects that get set aside throughout the month.

Sherry Hogan said...

This sounds like fun and I usually don't have anything going so maybe I can get something finished.

Patty said...

This is my first official Friday Night Sew-In, and I am definitely in a summer slump! This will help, I'm sure :-)

Judy C said...

Count me in!

Jess said...

Sounds like a lot of fun....a whole night just to quilt!

Cheryll said...

This sounds wonderful...what a great idea...I'd LOVE to join in too if I may?.

Bev C said...

Hi, please count me in again. Friday Night Sew Ins are so much fun. Thanks for the motivation.
Happy days.
Bev.xoxo

I had a blast last month and was eagerly awaiting this month! Hooray for Friday!

Hi, can't wait!! I'm just having a problem trying to work out which projects I'm going to work on!

Polly said...

Count me in!! Can't wait!! Polly

Vivian said...

Can't wait to sew along. But . . . how did time fly so fast.

Stephanie said...

This is a perfect opportunity to catch up on a UFO! Now to decide which one to work on.

I already sketched out my design, just need to make it, so I will be starting on Friday and hopefully have the bulk of it finished by Saturday evening!See ya then!

Quilterrits said...

Count me in!

Crafty Maine Mom said...

I can't believe it is time for another Friday night Sew In. I need to get everything organized and ready to go. Maybe I can get a couple of the 18 UFOs off the UFO list.

Shawna said...

Excited to get some work done tomorrow night. I hate it when I can't get any sewing done!

Linda said...

Ooh, Friday night sewing with friends, how fun is that? Now, I just have to decide what I'll be working on.

Oddbjørg said...

I'm looking forward to do some sewing tomorrow.

Meghan said...

Going to try to assemble a quilt top today and tomorrow... I'd better get cutting!

Lisa M. said...

I was a little worried we would still be on vaca and I would miss this month but all's well...I'm in :-)

I posted about it on my blog

Tina said...

I just found this blog. WHat a great idea! I don't blog much, but this just might give me enough motavation to write a new post Saturday!

Lisa said...

I am looking forward to Friday.

Mistea said...

I'm so happy I can play and no chance work is going to interfere with my crafting this Friday night.

Look forward to seeing what everyone gets up too.

Best get my place sorted so I can play uninterrupted.

Thanks for hosting.

Wonky Girl said...

This sew-in snuck up on me! But I have lots of projects to work on.

Jindi's Cottage said...

Ooo...almost missed out! Good thing Mistea reminded me I would have been pouting...right, time to get organised as it is already Friday on this side of the world!

Candice said...

I am soooooo excited! This is my first time participating in a sew-in...I would have missed it, but thanks to the lovely blog of knitmachinequeen! Happy sewing divas!

Sunshine and Whimsy said...

This will be my first sew in, and I'm excited! It's tonight, so I'd best get ready. I'm going to be working on my very first quilt that I just started two days ago. Wish me luck! LOL!

Linda said...

Whew! I almost forgot to sign in!!! I have everything ready for tonight!!

Reethi said...

Is this too late to sign up? My plans got cancelled tonight (yay!) and I can spend an entire evening sewing. Perfect!!!!

SemiCharmedWife said...

I hope I'm not too late to sign up! This will be my first sew-in, and I'm hoping to finish up a maternity blouse I've been working on. Looking forward to it!

Clio said...

I hope I'm not too late! I have to finish a sewing project tonight so it can come on vacation with me tomorrow! Yikes!
