After Christmas Sew Along 2014 begins Monday!!!

I'm so excited about all the generous people who are
supplying us with discount codes and fabulous prizes
to make this a really fun month of sewing!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

The Details:
The fun starts Monday January 6th.

#1. Sew anything you like.
It can be Christmas themed or not.
I'll be sewing Christmas decor for my home
since I never have the time to do that.
Most of us are constantly sewing for others
 and seldom get the chance to sew for ourselves.
You can even get a jump start on gifts
for next Christmas if you want to.
It's totally up to you.

#2. Every Monday, begining January 6th for 4 weeks,
 I will post a link to a  flicker group
for you to share photos of your creations.
You are welcome to post pics of works in progress.
But only 1 photo per project will count 
towards the prizes each week.
(example....5 photos of same project = 1 entry)
Each Monday there will be a completely new group
for that week only.
A winner will be chosen at random every Friday evening
and I will post the winner on
this blog on Saturday.
You can join in at any time!

That's it....easy peasy!
Just have fun!!!

and not having any deadlines or pressure!

spread the word!
The more the merrier!!!
