Sew Along Day is coming on Saturday, September 17, 2016 from noon to 4 pm Eastern time (NYC time). I hope you will join us! We will be sharing what we are working on, giving away great prizes, and having tons of fun! The online Sew Along will take place here on my blog and over on my Facebook page.

Since we will be busy stitching the day away, no one wants to think about making dinner, right? Wouldn’t it be nice, after a long day of sewing, to simply dip into the crock pot for a delicious meal? Here are 11 ideas for you! Just pop open a bag of pre-cut salad mix and your dinner is complete! I’ve included some make ahead dessert ideas, too.
