It’s here folks. The time has arrived. Ignore your to-do list, start rifling through your fabric stash, and saddle up to your sewing machine. The next seven days are all about sewing for yourself. This week is meant for working on whatever sewing project your heart desires, and putting off the selfless sewing until next week. You deserve it.
So what’s happening this week in the online sewing community? Well, a lot. Here’s the rundown.
Blog Posts, Galore
There will be several featured posts on both our blog and Imagine Gnats
. A full blog tour is happening on many more stellar sewing blogs. Plus, there’s a great event page
