September Friday Night Sew-In!!

I will be hosting the Friday Night Sew-In for September "solo" this time. Bobbi has a very important wedding that weekend (her nephew).

The Sew-In will be on September 17th! Are you ready? That gives you 3 weeks to formulate your plan, so get busy!

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 – 09/17/10 - 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 9/19, we will enter all participants into a GIVEAWAY for something fun! Maybe some fabric.. or a sewing gadget or two. As always we select 2 winners - so you each will have 2 chances to win!!

I'm one of those "newbies" :-)! Excited about the opportunity to sew, sew, sew! LOL The most-often used label on my blog? -- Unfinished Projects! I hope there'll be some finished projects in the list on Sept. 18th!

Staci said...

Hi there! This will be my first one! No idea what I'll work on yet, but I have decided it will be something fun that I want to play with and not something I have a 'deadline' on!

Madelyn said...

I haven't participated in a sew in in awhile. Looking forward to Friday night!

Rachel said...

I missed the last two because I was away for the summer, so I'm definitely looking forward to this month's FNSI! I'll be there with bells (and my jammies) on, that is if I don't get derailed somehow. sigh.

Megan said...

Yay! Super excited for my first Friday Night Sew In!!

Jess in Progress said...

YAY! I look forward to this every month. I'll be working on my "homework" for my quilting class on Saturday. Thanks for setting this up :)

Oddbjørg said...

I look forward to another nice Friday!
Thanks a lot for the gift I received today!

Emma said...

Yay for FNSI! And I have a blog now too, so I posted about this one!

Kristen said...

I have a hexagon table runner, sewn by machine, that needs to be finished.

Theresa said...

Looking forward to it - I'll be working on my homework from the class I'm taking on Friday at my LQS.

vanos said...

Looking forward to Friday Night Sew In - It usually turns in to a weekend sew in at my house.

Jindi's Cottage said...

I'm in! Yay!! Now what to work on...

Mistea said...

I can hardly wait to get home to start sewing. Look forward to checking out all the making we achieve!
Thanks for hosting.

sunny said...

I think I know exactly what I'll be working on, but I still have a couple of days to change my mind a dozen times!

Wendy said...

I've only got two days to decide what I'm going to sew... There is something I SHOULD sew, but not sure whether I can be bothered!!

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

Count me in. I looked at my WIP list recently and horrified myself. At this rate Little Pyjamas will be getting his quilt when he graduates from high school in 2026.

Narelle said...

Count me in for this round.
Not only do I have some swap goodies to complete but I'm starting two weeks holidays .. or should that be 'change of job' because it just means that I get everything done around the house that has been on the waiting list.

Nanna said...

I wa just saying I was going to have to go into lock in mode LOl I'm down to 9 days till show time & there's nakies & body parts everywhere!

Erica said...

I have a purse I want to finish for a Christmas gift. I've been procrastinating on getting it done. Well no more excuses! :-)

Valerie said...

I have tried several times to link to this and can't seem to figure out how. I am planning on doing the sew in though. If you have any hints what I am doing wrong let me know. My link is www.lifeslittlegarden.blogspot.com

Lis said...

Logopaedchen said...

Well, I´ll try to be there...again..hope I'll make it this time.
Thanks for all those good ideas. Greets Kirsten

Jackie said...

Ok, I'm in, but I hope to actually sew something again this time around. Lots has happened since the last time and this date kinda crept up on me. But we shall see, it was so fun last time.

Deb said...

Well, I've bookmarked your post on my Bloglines each and every time you've had one of these Friday sew-ins. But it's never worked out that I've been involved. I'm going to try and make it happen this week!

Dot said...

I have great news! I am off all day on Friday, I am going to a BOM at 1 PM but I plant to sew all day. So my FNSI = FDSI -- I am sew excited. Hopefully I can get a halloween project done.

Sheri said...

This sounds like fun. I'm in!

Debbie said...

Preparation, what preparation!!! I've only just remembered to register in time!

lenoirdenantes said...

I cannot wait to get home from work and put my bunny slippers on. I have so many projects I cannot decide what to work on.
Karen W. in S.W. OH

Lisa M. said...

I thought I was going to have to miss this month as we have family time planned tonight, but then had a 'duh' moment...today is my first day with both DD's in school full day so I will be doing some Friday-Day-Sewing instead...if I ever get off the computer that is! lol!

Mary Anne Drury said...

Molly said...

I have a project that I'm trying to finish up! :)

keebler1962@gmail.com said...

I am normally a quilter, but I am babysitting 4 of my 10 grandchildren tonight, so I will be crocheting instead.

I will post my finished scarf on Saturday.

Weatherbee ;) said...

Yay! This is my very first Friday Night Sew In. I've been sick all week...and dying to do something! And I've got SO much to catch up on. Here's my excuse...the hubbie will just have to understand I've made a commitment here. :)

Reethi said...

Talk about a last minute sign-up!

Becky said...

Hey, I've been checking in every few days hoping to figure out how to officially join the sew in, but never figured out how. So, I've been sewing since 6 tonight, just so I can feel the power of all these quilters linked together. Whether I'm official, or not, I'm having fun, and just put the borders on my baby rose, and am now working on the borders for my snowflake snowball. I've also prepared the applique pieces for my next Circuit Rider block. This has been great for me. Thank you so much.

KQ Sue said...

Rrrrrrhh!!! OK, I am squealing in here at the last minute. DYS, DDIL, Dude & Devine Ms M; called me at the last minute to go out for Mexican Food. OGM, DDIL snuck 2/3s of her Margarita in my glass. OK, breathalizer - passed, cutting all done, only sewing to do. Sewing on my "stash reduction" boxes. Doesn't take much to concentration for 2" squares to go through the machine.

Angie said...

I just had a great FNSI - I can't wait to see all of the pictures tomorrow!

Debi Weaver said...

Ok...here is my first attempt to join a group who promises to sit and sew all evening, and show their work the following day! Whew...what have I joined here, ladies?!
Thanks for the challenge to accomplish this handiwork! Debi

Theresa said...

I had a fabulous night of sewing - after a day of sewing - what a treat! Looking forward to seeing what everybody's been making and to the next FNSI!

Lana said...

I used my Friday Night Sew-In to work on a little baby quilt for my soon-to-be Godson...
We should call the day after a Friday Night Sew-In - The Saturday View-In...
Everyone's projects look so good!

Wendy said...

I stayed in and sewed last night, now I've blogged about it - I'm not sure if there's an official way of "reporting" back, but I'm off to see what you all made.

Scrap'N'Play said...

I actually was able to sew last night and I blogged about it here http://goldeneyezblog.blogspot.com/2010/09/friday-night-sewing.html Hope to get a chance to see what you all did!

Lisa said...

I finished my rag quilt last night and posted pic's on my blog and on flickr! Love what everyone else worked on. This was fun!!!

Jess said...

What a great idea! I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday night :)

Madelyn said...

I only sewed a little bit last night. I went to a quilt show yesterday and it was late when I got home. I did a quickie project, something that was already cut out.

Crafty Maine Mom said...

It was a great night. I am always inspired to get things done during my Friday Night Sew In weekends.

Shiree said...

I usually take part in these in one form or another, but this Friday night saw me hand stitching a quilt binding with my dear blogging friend, a great night!!
