Thank you!

on November 8 | in Etc... | by | with 50 Comments

We want to thank so many of you for alerting us to the fun Bloglines News article yesterday. The Sew, Mama, Sew! Blog debuted in the Bloglines Top 1000 as the week’s “Biggest Mover!” We’re so glad you stop by, sharing crafty news, incredible projects, resources and our love of fabric! November is so much fun for us here throughout Handmade Holidays; it sounds like you’re really enjoying it too! At this point in the tutorial extravaganza we only wish we had about five more (obligation-free) hours added to each day for sewing!

Don’t forget: Add a comment anywhere on the blog by Friday morning for your chance to win this week’s drawing for one of two $25 gift certificates to the Sew, Mama, Sew! shop. We know you can put it to good use!

Whimsy… Coming soon…
