expand your sewing skills at the sewing party

The Sewing Party

When I see people attending blogging, sewing, crafting, and quilting conferences, I get a little jealous. But then I remember that I'm a mega homebody, and even a bit of a hermit, so traveling to spend a lot of time with a lot of people I don't know might be a little out of my comfort zone. Sewing has been out of my comfort zone too for a long time, but no longer!

So what if I could connect with people without leaving my house AND improve my sewing? There is a way! And it's called The Sewing Party.



On November 8, 2014, thousands of DIY-ers will gather for a fun-filled day of sewing and crafting classes taught online by leading bloggers and educational experts. It’s all about Connecting. Crafting. And Creating.

Attendees will have access to more than 30 online classes available on the day of the event and for an additional 90 days. There is truly something for everyone! Classes include home d├ęcor, fashion sewing, quilting and upcycling, crafting, costume design, techniques for turning your craft into an entrepreneurial venture, and more!

Space is limited and likely to fill up fast! For just $40, “The Sewing Party” participants can attend classes; chat with participants from across the country; interact with top bloggers and educational experts who are teaching; and explore the latest crafting and sewing tips, techniques and products in the marketplace.

And just check out the companies that are hosting this!

The Sewing Party Sponsors

I'm very honored to be an official Friend of The Sewing Party, and that brings good things...for you! Not only do I get to be part of this all-day (plus 90 days!) event, but I get to extend a special offer.

If you sign up by July 31st, with your paid registration, you can get a free The Sewing Party t-shirt valued at $20! It's super cute, so be sure to enter LETSPARTY in the promo code box when you enter.

AND, something extra special...I have five free registrations that I get to give away!

The Sewing Party is only available in the US, but hopefully they'll have an international version someday. For now, only US residents can enter. There are a bunch of ways to enter, and I'll choose five winners next Friday. Good luck!
