November Friday Night Sew-In - You don't want to miss this one!!

It's time to sign up for the November Friday Night Sew-in. Commit to some much needed "YOU TIME"

Bobbi and I have a super exciting announcement to make for the November FNSI.. are you ready?

The FNSI Giveaway this month is sponsored by Me and My Sister Designs. Me and My Sister Designs have created many adorable lines of fabric for Moda. If you've never heard of them.. then crawl out of that cave you are living in and click the link and read their blog. They are super fun and funny!

Bobbi and I were lucky enough to meet Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister Designs last January. Their fabric is always bright and fun. And they are also releasing 5 new patterns including a cozy for your iron! So cute! Check them out!

So if you are excited and want to participate in the Friday Night Sew-in this month.. 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 – 11/19/10 - 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 11/21, we will enter all participants into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!! And it's looking like we will have 4 winners this month! Yes, 4 chances to win!
