Occupy Your Sewing Room!

Looking to link up?  Click here!

Here's a blogging event for our times! 

1. Occupy your Sewing Room will run from December 3 - 10, 2011. During that week, plan to occupy your sewing room for a full day. If you can't spend a whole day, then divide it up into whatever increments you like. 

2. Write a blog post and then come back on December 11th to link up and show off what you've accomplished. This is a chance for you to finish up those Christmas gifts you haven't had time for, but you can work on whatever you like.  And if you don't have a blog, feel free to post an image from Flickr, Shutterfly, or any other photo sharing service that allows you to generate a URL. Just be sure I have a way to contact you or you won't be able to win in the giveaway. No-reply bloggers, that goes for you too!

3. On December 17th, I'll host a giveaway. Prize will be this Moda Fig Tree Strawberry Fields jelly roll.  Also, Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting Blog is offering $30 off on quilting a lap-size or larger quilt. Details of this offer here.  The winner will be chosen randomly from those who join in the linky party. 

A second winner will win this Moda Little Apples charm pack.

A third winner will win this Quilting Block & Pattern a Day 2012 Calendar.

A fourth winner will win the two-DVD set of the documentary Why Quilts Matter.

4. PR angels who help spread the word by whatever method will be given one extra chance to win. Just leave a comment at the end of this post and let me know how you've done it. You can post the Occupy your Sewing Room button on your blog, share on Facebook or Twitter, or just write a blog post about it. 

Occupy Sewing Room

Our list of demands is short: Leave me alone. I'm sewing!

What a FUN idea!!! Adorable button, too - I've got it right by the top of my sidebar. :)

Oh my goodness - just what I need!! I'm totally going to put this button up on my blog and do a post about it!! What a great idea!!!

Judi said...

Love this idea! I added your button to my sidebar. I won't ever get a full day just to sew because I'm nursing, but I'll do my best ;)

Sounds like a fun idea. I'll be finishing up with the Christmas quilt show, but I certainly love a good party so I'm hoping to join the fun.

I've added this to my page where I share insights on giveaways & contests. http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/p/giveaways.html I'll also try to get a blog post out about it to heighten awareness too.

I'm grabbing your button and sewing it to my sidebar. A super idea, I look forward to seeing what everyone is doing.

Your button keeps coming up "Function Disabled" and I'm unable to copy/paste! Any suggestions?


Denise :) said...

Sounds like fun -- it also sounds like I started early! (I've spent the majority of today in that very spot!) :)

This sounds like a lot of fun!!
I've already put the button on the top of my sidebar & will be asking some friends to come sew with me!

Great idea Barbara!

Snoodles said...

I did it! Your button is on the right-hand sidebar of my blog! I'll try to post about it, too... Love this idea; you come up with some fun stuff for us to do! Thanks for hosting this.
