It’s no secret that I have been a terrible blogger for the last year or so…..which has led me to look at doing things a bit differently.

I have made a Sew It Together page on Facebook, and if you “Like” it, you’ll get updates on everything a whole lot quicker than you would through this here blog.

If it all goes swimmingly, I might move the bulk of the arranging, announcements and such over there, as I find it a lot more convenient and faster.

Here’s the link:

It’s my understanding that you don’t need a Facebook account to view the page, but you do need to have one to comment…which will be important as I get started, because I would love to hear from you.

Is there anybody left on the planet who is not on Facebook? Is this not good for you? Let me know what you think!

Fancy a walk?

March 8, 2011

I believe that there are 8 of us coming to SIT who are also doing the 12 Week Body Transformation!

I think that almost all of us are beginners, and part of the beginners’ weekly exercise program is a 60 minute powerwalk on Saturdays.

Donna and I will be setting off from The Menzies Hotel at 6:30am (I haven’t told her yet, oops) on Saturday morning for a gorgeous walk by the harbour through The Botanic Gardens. You are welcome to join us, whether you are doing the 12WBT or not, but be warned, it won’t be a leisurely walk. We’ve got calories to burn before we park our butts on chairs and chat all day long.

Leave a comment below if you’d like to join us. If there are a few of you from a particular hotel or the YHA, we might be able to swing past and pick you up, otherwise, meet us at The Menzies nice and early!


Our First Sponsors!

November 3, 2010

I’m delighted to tell you that we already have some sponsors for Sew It Together Sydney 2011!

A huge thank you to our very own bloggers/small business owners who have been so quick to jump in and sponsor SIT;

  • Retromummy – despite barely arriving home from hospital with baby #4, Corrie was the first to jump in (again!) with an offer to sponsor Sew It Together next year. You’ll all receive a little bit of delicious Retromummy fabric in your goody bags!
  • Vintage Ric-Rac – the genius behind such legendary favourites as Ernst (who nearly caused a papparazzi stampede at SIT 2010), Small-Bot and Cat-Bot, and newer heroes, Fiskar, Olfa and Guterman; Jodie has again offered to sponsor Sew It Together, and throw some free stuff our way!
  • Posie Patchwork – another busy mother of 4, Jennie, who started Posie Patchwork 11 years ago, creates all manner of gorgeous goodies and sells beautiful fabrics in her online store,¬†at Shop Handmade in Canberra, and at lots of other markets around ACT and NSW. Jennie will be popping a little bit of Posie magic into your goody bags!

Ladies, thank you so much. You are each a perfect example of the kind, generous bloggers that I have come to know and treasure in this community. I am sure everyone appreciates your generosity; given so warmly and without hesitation. Thank you!
