Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongIt’s just not that far away at this point, less than 2 1/2 weeks away before we start this event.

This event is in it’s 3rd year hosted by Seams To Be Sew. It is my favorite event of the year.

It also happens to fall in the same month as National Sewing Month, declared by Ronald Reagan in 1982. Thank you!! I’d rather it be International Sewing Month, but I’m not going to quibble over it either.

It’s an exciting time at Seams To Be Sew, so many wonderful things going on, and still to come for 2016.

The Road Home Row Along

We are looking for you to create a pattern that depicts places on the way to your home, This doesn’t have to be your current home. We all have a place we call home.
