Sew Grateful Week Starts Tomorrow!

I am very excited!  Tomorrow is the start of the 2013 Sew Grateful Week.  I had so much fun during the previous Sew Grateful Weeks.  Here's what will be happening around here this next week:

Monday is Giveaway Day!  I'll be hosting my own giveaway tomorrow and will also provide a place for you to link up your Sew Grateful giveaway posts (a linky party!)

Tuesday is the official 'Sew Grateful Day'!  I'll be writing my own post about what the online sewing community means to me and also what I'm particularly grateful for.  I'll also provide a space for you to link back to your own reflection posts.

I would also love for people who don't have blogs to be able to participate.  You can send me a paragraph (or just a couple of sentences) on what the online sewing community means to you and I'll compile these all into a post later in the week.  Send your thoughts to me at: myhappysewingplace[at]googlemail[dot]com

Wednesday is the Sharing Day!  This is the day to share your own online tutorial, to provide links to online resources or to share your own pattern.  I'll be helping to launch a super fun initiative on Wednesday and I'll also provide space for you to link back to your own tutorials, resources and patterns!

Thursday is the Sew Grateful Project Day!  I'm super excited for Thursday.  I've just put the finishing touches on my Sew Grateful project and I think it's one of my favourite outfits to date.  I just need to get photos but I think you're going to love it!!  I had the chance to collaborate with one of my blog readers to complete the ensemble.  I'll also provide a space for you to link to your 'Sew Grateful' projects whether it was a project using a recent swap item or present or something inspired by another sewist...the possibilities are endless.

Friday and Saturday are the Highlight Days.  I'll highlight some of the posts from the Sew Grateful Week and provide a bit of a wrap-up.

YAY!  Can't wait for the week to start!



  1. Well its Monday here in Australia and I've just put up my giveaway - looking forward to giving you the link tomorrow :)

  2. I like this, somehow I've never heard of this before? I would love to participate but I foresee myself not having the time but I will enjoy reading what you have to share!

    Beccie! Your giveaway is AMAZING! I am LOVING IT SOOOOO MUCH!

  4. I'm so excited to follow along! I wish I didn't feel like I was a day late and a dollar short though and had more time to prepare some things this week! Of course I just thought of all sorts of great things that would be appropriate (gah! If I had a skirt half done I'd whip up my vintage hemming tutorial for Wednesday!). Maybe you need a winter and a summer version. lol!

  5. p.s. Your enthusiasm is so infectious!! I'm sitting here washing 4 fabrics and wondering if I could somehow pull off a Sew Grateful project this week after all! :D

  6. Hmm I think I just figured out if I reply on my iPad it doesn't post the comment because it doesn't show the Disqus comments! I wondered why your comments looked different! Anyway, if you did not get them from yesterday, I think I was saying something about how I wish I had remembered this week much sooner! And then later I commented that your enthusiasm was rubbing off because I suddenly found myself washing fabric and scrambling to see if I could do a Sew Grateful sewing project this week after all. lol

    Hi Tasha! You may have it....I was wondering because I could see your comments in my 'awaiting moderation' section and when I clicked 'published' they would show up in my 'published' comments section but not on the actual bizarre.  I am actually getting very fed up with Disqus and am thinking of switching back to the blogger comments!!!

  8. Hello Debi! I won two wonderful giveaways thanks to sew grateful so I decided to share the love with a belated giveaway over at my blog! Posting here in case anyone happens over and would like chance to win!


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
