Here we are! At the very end of Maggie’s First Dance Free Block of the Month! Thanks to EVERYONE who participated- my fabulous bloggers, our wonderful prize sponsors, and of course YOU- you were all so enthusiastic about this event, sharing photos of your work, telling your friends, and sewing along with us! I am always amazed at how exuberant and excited you all are about this event- I truly cherish all of your kind comments, Facebook posts and emails.
IMPORTANT! Please read! The pattern links in your emails will be deactivated on December 15, 2016.
