I hope you will join me for my live Sew Along! On Saturday, September 26 (that’s less than 2 weeks away), we’ll be “meeting” via Facebook and here on my blog. This will be a fun day of sewing to catch up on the Cozy Afternoon Block of the Month. (If you don’t have your Cozy Afternoon Free Block of the Month patterns yet, please click here.) Or maybe, you are already caught up, but you’d like to make some extra blocks. Maybe you haven’t even started yet and you need a little
kick in the butt gentle persuasion to get you going. We did this last year for the Sew Sweet Simplicity Block of the Month, and it was tons of fun!
Our little sewing event will take place from 12 noon til 4 pm EST (that’s 9 am til 1 pm Pacific time, and I believe 5 pm til 9 pm in the UK). Of course, feel free to start your sewing early, or keep going once the Sew Along is over… We will have prizes every hour. Really good prizes. Like this:
A note about time zones: We will be starting at noon on Sept. 26, New York City time (EST). You can go here to find your particular start time for your location.
You will be able to post photos of your progress so we can see what everyone is working on (on Facebook only, not on the blog). Also, if you have any questions, or if you’d like to offer any tips to other participants, this would be your chance! You can comment on Facebook or here on my blog during the Sew Along.
To participate on Facebook, follow along and post your photos and comments on my page here.
To participate here on my blog, just show up here on the 26th! Remember you’ll have to refresh the page frequently, as I’ll keep adding information, photos, etc. to the post as we go along.
(Please note that I will not be supplying specific patterns/instructions for this event- this is your chance to work on your Cozy Afternoon Block of the Month.)
You may remember that during our last Sew Along Day, we had a “dance party” and I showed you a video with some of my “moves,” LOL!! Something fun and little different that I will be doing this time is a quick little Periscope broadcast with a tutorial! Do you know what Periscope is? It’s a brand new way to watch live videos and interact by posting your comments and questions in real time. I did my first Periscope broadcast last week, and it was kind of fun. You can download the Periscope app to your iPhone or Android, and follow me @JacquelynneSteves to see my videos (make sure you follow @JacquelynneSteves, not @JacquelynneS- somehow I created a duplicate account and I’m trying to get it straightened out!!!). You will need to be on Periscope that day to see the live broadcast of the tutorial. (I’d love to build my Periscope following, I hope you will come “visit” even before the Sew Along Day!)
Next week, I’m going to post a recipe for a slow-cooker dinner, so you can put it together on Friday night and then just sew all day on Saturday, and at the end of the day have a yummy dinner as your reward :)
Everyone had a lot of fun last time, and I got a lot of wonderful feedback. Please mark your calendar now so you don’t forget!!
