Skirting the Issue always runs through the month of July and because this year July has 5 weeks it means that this week, week 3, is our half way point!
This week we will be talking about making blankets to donate and sharing some tutorials but first we just wanted to do two things:
#1. Say thank you to all of you who have been sewing along and posting your items in the Skirting the Issue Flickr group. And also a thank you to all of you that have sent emails, left comments, and shared stories. We appreciate hearing from each one of you.
#2. Remind you of the gifts that we have to give away to ladies who sew along. Over the weekend I was talking to someone who had just found the prize page. She didn't realize how many things we had to giveaway....and we do...thank you to some very generous sponsors. (Gifts like gift cards, fabric, and even a brand new Singer Sewing machine!) So get sewing...not only will you be doing something kind for someone else but you will get a chance to win some great gifts.
Alright...so that is that!
