October Friday Night Sew-In - all the cool people are doing it!

It's time to commit to doing something you love! Signup for the Friday Night Sew-in coming October 15th! Bobbi and I will both be hosting this one and we can't wait to sew with all of you!

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 – 10/15/10 - 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 - 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 10/17, we will enter all participants into a GIVEAWAY for a charm pack of fabric and our signature FNSI pincushion. As always we select 2 winners - so you each will have 2 chances to win!!

I am really really going to try to participate this time. Usually some force beyond my control gets in the way. Looking forward to it!

Robyn said...

I have a stall at a local open garden event on that weekend so there will probably be something that needs starting or finishing at the last minute :P!

Laura said...

look forward to it, maybe this is the motivation I need to get some UFO'S finish or who knows start something new (lol)
See you all on the 15
Hugs

Last week was my first Friday Night Sew-In. I joined at the last minute, and without a bit of preparation I didn't get as much done as I'd like.

This one is going on the calendar...it's a date, and I'll be ready this time!! :)

I'm in again! This month I started a new project, something different for me, so I think I'll use the FNSIs as a way of starting something new and different- I've already got something in mind. I'll blog about it next week.

Hello,
I signed up for the FNSI but then I discovered I wont be in that night - my dad runs the Nottingham Beer Festival and I always work one of the bars for him, it's on that Friday night! Can I join in but do my sewing on the Saturday or does that just not count? :0(

Everyday Quilter said...

I need all the sewing time I can get! I'll kick the kids and hubby to the curb for the night and sew, sew, sew!

Sounds like a fun idea! I have a pile of UFO's I want to get to work on.

Kim said...

I haven't had a chance to "play" with all of you lately, so I'm looking forward to it!

Jandi said...

The 15th is fall break here so I am hoping the kids will be busy playing with friends so that I can get some sewing done!

Mary Lou Casada said...

Count me in! The last one in September helped me focus to work on a couple of projects. Will do so again, I hope! Our club's annual quilt show is that Friday night, but I'm hoping I'll be inspired to sew a while when I get home.
Blessings,
Mary Lou

Hoping to finish up some stitch in the ditch quilting. It always seems like a good idea, until I get about 10 minutes into it. Then I have one of those What Was I Thinking moments.
