I love our sewing community

I've got to say, when I started blogging a couple years ago, I had no idea I would meet some of my best friends through this blog.  The women (and few brave men!) in our online community are amazing - their talents, their lives, their charity.  I am truly blessed to consider myself to be part of this amazing group of people.

We are always here for one another, to lend an ear (or maybe it's eyes, in our virtual world?) during hard times, share joy in happy times, and in tangible ways such as sharing our last scrap of our very favorite fabrics just because our friends love it too.

One of these amazing women is Sara from Sew Sweetness.  Sometimes I feel like maybe I talk about Sara too much (crazy stalker lady much?!), but she truly is amazing!  I was so fortunate to have a chance to meet Sara when she was in town for Quilt Market, and my only regret was that we didn't get to spend more time together.  I hope we get a chance to meet up "in real life" again some day.

Sara is hoping to break into the clothing pattern business, and is asking for a little help from her friends.  You can find all the information on her Kickstarter page.  Please, please consider donating any amount you can.  Every dollar helps!  If each of us gave a dollar, or maybe the cost of a fat quarter, we can help Sara reach her goal.  I understand times are tough, but if you've got a buck to spare, please consider putting it towards Sara's goal.

If you do donate (deadline is August 19!), you can even have a chance to win some fantastic fabric over at Craft Buds (giveaway ends August 10).  Head over there after donating if you can.

And just incase you're wondering, Sara's not giving me anything to share this with you.  I just fully believe in what she's trying to do & want nothing more than for her to succeed!

Good luck Sara!

Until next time...

  1. She's getting closer and closer! Thanks for sharing Sara's campaign--I think she's gonna make it. :)


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
