The Super Online Sewing Match…

Big, big news for me here lovely readers!  I have been selected as a contestant in The Super Online Sewing Match .  Wahoo, this is so very exciting for me!  Kristin and Beth, of Sew, Mama, Sew, are the masterminds behind the contest.  They have established a North American online sewing match complete with prizes.  The contest is co-sponsored by Sew, Mama, Sew and Janome,  and several online pattern companies and online fabric retailers are in on the game too.   Ten lucky sewists were selected to participate, and did I say, the contest has started? That’s right, I should be sewing at this very moment.  Things went from pie in the sky, ‘I could do that.’ to, gulp, game on, in the blink of an eye.  Each week, we are presented with a new sewing challenge, and each week one or two of us are eliminated.  I won’t say voted off the island, but you know that’s what I’m thinking.   It’s like being in a favourite reality show.  I really, really hope to be in this to the end, and I will be posting photos and a narrative of how each challenge plays out.  I’ll be sewing madly, and madly sewing!  Thanks bunches for the support!

    How did I miss this post? This will be so much fun to watch. I would say good luck, but your first project is amazing so luck doesn't have anything to do with it.
