New Friends, A Chat, A Give-Away and A Sew-Along

Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends,
for it is one of God's best gifts.
~ Thomas Hughes

So this is kind of exciting - I'm going to be hosting a chat about The Original "How Much Fabric?" Reference Cards tonight on the website Sew Much Talent.  :)

Have you visited this site?  It's another great resource for people who sew and enjoy making new friends and learning new skills.  The founder, Alethia, has set it up to be easy to upload and view project photos and instructional videos, to join special interest groups, to ask questions on the forum and to chat with your online friends.  (It's free to join, of course.)  

Anyways, tonight I'll be showing some examples of how to use the cards and then Alethia and I are going to be hosting a give-away of one set of cards - winners choice - to one of the chat participants.  

Finally, Alethia will be announcing the first Sew Much Talent sew-along of 2013!  I've never participated in a sew-along before, but this one is "just what the doctor ordered" for me and so I'm excited about giving it a go.  :)

This will also be the first time I've ever hosted a chat, so, wish me luck and I'd love it if any of you want to join us!  :)
