We’re all getting ready for the September Sew-A-Long!  I’m really excited.  Thanks to Nancy Langdon…we are having a giveaway.  Nancy just sent a ton of patterns to me.  That means you all are going to have a chance to win.

I will be giving away 5 Mika patterns on September 1.  All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered.  Make sure your comment is left by 8 am EST on September 1 to be entered.  It is that simple. 

You will love this pattern so make sure you enter to win.  There will be one grand prize winner and four other winners.  The grand prize winner will get a little something extra in their package…to be determined by me.  You won’t be disappointed!  The other four winners will each receive a brand new Farbenmix Mika Pattern.  Make sure you let all of your friends know.  You don’t want them to miss their chance at winning.

Good luck to each and every one of you!

    I have to go for it since it’s named after me! Ok, not really, but it’s REALLY rare to see something awesome with my name attached lol. I’m hoping to work on the sew along this time, but I’m moving so we’ll see what happens lol.

    I’m still trying to finish the Marieke I started this summer, but I’ve planned to make the Zoe raglan shirts for my kids’ Christmas pj tops for a while. I have a red Christmas print for the front and backs and red and white knit stripes for the arms.

    Wonderful! I do have a fear of knits so this will be great! I would love to make some girly pants that my daughter would actually wear. She is more of a dress/skirt girl. Fun fun!
