#notgoingtosewingsummit

I was so lucky to attend sewing summit last year. What an awesome weekend to meet up with all of my blogging sewing friends and make new ones!

Last spring when quilt market was going on I got a little envious of all the market posts on Instagram. So a little tongue in cheek I started a little #notgoingtomarket party! Hehehe all in good fun.

Sooooooo, why not have a #notgoingtosewingsummit party this weekend!? (There's another tag started on twitter: #sortasummit)

If you aren't able to go either, join me for a virtual sewing fest! Pick a few projects to work on this weekend. We'll have our own virtual sewing room! The sewing room was the happening place during last year's event.
more sewing room
Share your photos on Instagram and twitter and tag them #notgoingtosewingsummit. I'll open up sew & tell on Thursday night for our opening night mixer! Edited to add: If you don't have instagram or twitter the link up will be up all weekend where you can share what you are doing!! Link up as often as you want!


I need some motivation to get back to some sewing! Who's in!? And of course I'll be checking in on all the real #sewingsummit posts too!

Maybe I'll finish up this little lovely.

I'm in. I'd love to go one day, but to this year.

Dee said...

What a fun idea capitalizing on the fact that so many of us are at Sewing Summits even when the official one isn't happening.

We homeschool and it's soccer season...any second I can sew is Sewing Summit for me!

Hooray for those of us staying home!

But, I will sew along with you! I like those stars you are working on. What is the fabric?

Me, too! I don't have twitter or instagram but I can certainly share on my blog and I do have a LOT of sewing that I should get done this weekend!

Toni said...

Consider this my RSVP!! Those stars are looking fabulous!

Heather D. said...

I'm not going either, in addition I'm not a instagrammer or a twitterer. :) I do look forward to seeing all the updates once the event is over. It was fun last year seeing all the photos and figuring out who's who and what blog they belong to!

How fun. You will be there in spirit and I will be missing you.

Teresa said...

I'm in! I met you last year at the Summit and I am really glad I am not the only one missing out this year!

Erica said...

Wonderful idea, count me in!

Lucky said...

I hope to be joining in. I look at my twitter feed and see everyone attending sewing summit and just get bummed! I now have an alternative! Thank you!

Oooh, your stars are going to be gorgeous! I love the fabrics you picked!!

Marika said...

Not going either :(
But at least, I got fabric today to make me feel better!

I'll definitely link up since I don't have instagram. I do have twitter though. Can I play along on twitter and post pictures from my Flickr account ? Is that possible ?

Love to be in -- but traveling to Austin, Tx this weekend -- I'll be stitching some wool pennies on the plane though.

Love your star piece -- stunning!

Kristie said...

Not going either :( But I spy myself sewing away in that photo, and my quilt on the design wall, lol! Good memories! I hope to have a. It of time to start up a new project this weekend, great idea to have a party!

Kris said...

Oh, please do finish this beautiful little lovely!! I think your virtual sewing room sounds so cool!! Count me in!!

Michele said...

I am so envious of those going to Sewing Summit and I already have a plan in place so that I won't miss it next year. I'd love to link up this weekend but I need a sewing machine to do that. Unfortunately both are in the shop at the moment so the best that I can do is some cutting in preparation of sewing.

Thanks so much for this great idea! I'm having a little giveaway in honor of all of us who can't go to Sewing Summit!
