I didn’t get a post created yesterday. I was so busy trying to finish up Sam and Sam for a release that I simply forgot to get the post written, so today I’ll do three of the giveaways and do another three tomorrow or Saturday…
In the meantime, some silly chitchat on website stuff… I have now secured my site to an https address. Please check the address and see if it will open for you in an https environment. I want everyone to be able to view my blog, so it was a necessary change that I’ve been putting off doing for quite some time. Thank you to Pat for writing me about the error she was receiving. It made me get off my duff and make the switch. You can actually view the blog without the https environment, but if you want the security that https brings, you might like to make the switch yourself.
So I know you must be wondering about what is happening with the Row Along. Well it’s right on track at this point, some fun things have been happening in the designer’s group we have for the row along and I’ve been seeing some amazing rows come to life for the row along this year… But I thought I’d tempt you with a little sneak peek of one of the perks of participating today and lets you in on the final list of participants for this year.
Northcott Fabrics has kindly given fabric to the designers participating to help them create their rows. You’ll be able to see those over the course of August as I announce each sponsor’s giveaways also. The designers will also feature their fabrics on their featured day of the row along.
If you haven’t joined us for previous row alongs, I will post an instruction/type note under the Sponsors list in this post for you. This is a long post, but it covers everything you need to know.
As a reminder, each designer has a free pattern for you this year. However, designers are only required to keep their patterns free for one week past there featured day. You must visit each day if you wish to download the patterns. Designers are free after that period to put their rows up for sale or leave them free for you to download. Patterns may be available on the designer’s website thru a cart system, a simple download, via google drive, one drive, Payhip, Craftsy, or any other way that the designer finds it easy to set her download. If you miss a pattern and want the pattern, please respect that designer and buy it if she has put it up for sale. Do not write to her and ask her to send it to you.
So, here we go…
