Calling all Charming Guys and Girls for the Sewing Party


Kelly and I are cohosting a Tote Bag Sewing Party for the Charming Guys and Girls this Saturday, April 17th.  So, if you have a bag pattern that you've been wanting to try and you are going to be around on Saturday, I hope you'll join in the fun.  As I said before, we are limiting the number of spaces to 25 members in hopes that we can keep it small and cozy. It really does make it a fun day, if you are able to get around to visiting everyone's blogs for updates as well as making progress on your own bag that day.

So are you in?  If yes, you need to leave a comment on this post committing yourself to the party.  In your comments or profile, be sure I know your blog address so that I can link to you the day of the party.  Then, don't forget to blog about it and feel free to grab the party bling above!  Don't wait too long, we are only holding 25 spots this time.  First come, first serve. 

You can start sewing anytime of the day and sew as long as your heart delights.  Please try to update your blog a couple of times that day, as it is fun to check in on everyone's progress.  On a personal note, I just received word from Buddy's soccer coach that his first game of the season is Saturday morning.  What terrible timing, but Buddy comes first and I am going to his game.  So, I will post the links before I leave for the game Saturday morning.  I will return home to sew around 11:30....and check in on my blog and emails at that time.  If anyone needs any bag assistance, I will be around after 11:30 to help answer your questions or emails.

Of course, we'll have a parade of bags afterwards, and I am sure Kelly will throw in a prize...you know how she rolls!  :) 

For all of my non CGGQC friends, I'd love to see some of you working on bags this weekend and posting projects on your blogs....it would be fun to see lots of bags floating out on the blogs this weekend!  My mom is coming up to sew some bags as well just for fun.  :) 

***  I have added links on the right sidebar to all participants.  Also we have 2 non bloggers joining us, my mom and Deborah.  We only have 1 spot left.  Anyone who posted they wanted to participate is able to join in the fun (whether they are a member or not- sorry as to the confusion on that).  So, if you already "signed" up, please check to see that your link is up.  And if it is not, let me know.

Oh I wish I could join in, Kris. I love online sewing parties. But I have a conflict too. Sophie (my doggie) and I have been asked to be grand marshals at a Bark for Life walk (for cancer) Saturday morning. We'll be walking in memory of Vann. Hope everyone has a great time. I'll be checking on results Saturday evening.

I am from the Charming Girls Quilt Club and I would like to join in. I have a couple of bags that I NEED to sew so Saturday would be a good day to do them. Does it have to be a pattern I have not used??? I have one of those and one with a pattern that I have used.

I'd love to play because I'm seriously 'bagophobic' but I have other plans so I'll have to pass. I know everyone will have lots of fun and make some wonderful bags.
