More New BOTMS, Wooly Block 2019, and other Events…

12 Days 2019

Coming October 1st is my all time favorite event for the year. Please don’t get me wrong, I love Block of the Months, Quilt Alongs, and other fun events that go on thru the year, but the one I’ll call a “temporary” event is the Wooly Block Adventure Event. Since I found out about the Wooly Block Adventure event in 2016, and was actually participating in it during our move back to the states that year I have thoroughly enjoyed this event. I got to do a bit of pay if forward with this event in 2016 when I visited shops to pick up kits for others and then ship the kits to them as they had been so kind as to send me Row by Row experience patterns and kits in 2015 and 2016.  In 2017, this event went to an online event. I was ecstatic. I knew at the same time we’d see a huge drop in shops that would participate because they are so against online stuff that they just refuse to participate. I’ve been told this by my own shops here in Colorado Springs. The following year in 2018, there was a large drop in shop participation, I was actually worried we wouldn’t see this event in 2019. Thank goodness, Janet must love this event as much as I love the row along each year because once again we have Wooly Block 2019. This year’s theme is Holiday Celebration and from the blocks they are now showing on the Facebook Wooly Block page, we are in for some absolutely gorgeous blocks.

How does this event work you might ask, Continue reading

New BOTM Found…A Pattern Sale…and Other News…

Once Upon A Story Row Along

Once Upon A Story Row Along

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you might visit on a semi-regular basis. A huge Thank You for that. I appreciate all of you.

As you know we are about three weeks now before the row along starts and lots of things are happening behind the scenes here at Seams To Be Sew. Over the last few days, I have mainly been working on my blog to bring you a special treat come the start of the row along. After all, it’s 5 years of row alongs in the making and quite frankly I thought it might be fun to do something a little special for it.

I’ll be posting soon also about the great giveaways our sponsors for Once Upon A Story are giving away during the 5 year Row Along celebration, there are some wonderful prizes coming your way. I know many of you are looking forward to the row along this year.

I will also be posting all the designers who are participating this year in the coming weeks.

The Wayback Machine and 5 New BOTM/SAL’s Added…

Hi Everyone, I’ve a little bug going on with my site at the moment, it has to be due to some of the wordpress updates lately. I’m working to try and find it. It seems to affect older pages on this site and not the newer ones tho, but if you try reloading the page you may see it also, it kinda looks like the path to the images. The bug affects all images, so I’ll be testing my plugins over the next few days to see which are current and which aren’t. I’m hoping it’s a simple problem like that and nothing else. 

Today I came to my blog to add some edits to the BOTM page for 2019, at least two BOTMs have finished and 4 more are starting or have started and I wanted to get them posted to you today. I realized pretty quickly that my sidebar stuff was gone, all that was there was the search bar, and the social icons, everything else was gone. One of the things about WordPress is that when you even switch a theme, the one backup you should make over everything else you also have to back up is your widgets on your Continue reading

2018 Web Event’s Around The World

2018 Around The Web

2018 Around The WebThere are many things that bring quilters together, but one of the funnest each year is a block of the month, or a quilt along, row along or any other event that captures our imagination and creativity.

Whether you participate in a class at your LQS or one from a blog on the web, they are totally fun and enjoyable. From Mystery Quilts to Pieced and Applique, a block of the month around the web or in your LQS varies depending on what the teacher/designer/blogger wants to do. Some will give you a tutorial, some will write out the full pattern on the post page for the block, some will give you a pattern to download and like me, assume you know what you’re doing. As an applique designer and so many ways to applique, I create my patterns so depending on your favorite technique you can do what your most comfortable with. Each of these bloggers who are featured also does so.

Last week I presented you with a list of known blogs at the Continue reading
