is it your cup of tea too?

okay, remember when i said i wanted to start a "my cup of tea sewing society"? i was half serious and half just saying it so let's get serious about getting silly here.

it's going to be purely ridiculous. and maybe a little inspiring to those of us who love to talk about sewing 24/7.

there is no commitment required. no social commitment, no whole separate blog to check/contribute to, no time commitment, no nothing- just every once in a while i'll post sewing questions or conversation starters and everyone who wants to weigh in can. for example: what is your favorite kind of project (knitting, quilting, hand-stitching, felt toys, clothing....etc.), what inspires you, what's the best kind of thread/scissors...etc. to use in your opinion...etc.

when my new nest is finished in 100 years, i may have a few society gatherings that are a no-pressure-come-if-it-suits-your-schedule kind of thing and every once in a while we will spotlight certain members and the projects they are working on if they so choose so we can all oooooh and aaaaaahhhh over them.

whatcha think?

is this your cup of tea? novices and experts, men and women, locals and mainlanders and internationals welcome.

and just to prove exactly how frivolously fun this is going to be, i'll make you a personal invite and membership card to put in your hello-kitty wallet or next to your holly hobbie machine.

just comment with your email address and i'll take it from there.

it's getting pretty silly up in here- who's with me? :)

So I can't remember when I first started reading your blog, but I think it was to watch a video Thomas did, or something like that, but then I read some of your posts and started wishing I had met you in person. (I knew Thomas many moons ago) I think that's why I like reading people's blogs. The blogs I think are lame I just forget about and then sometimes I find a blog that really intrigues me and can't get enough. I hope it doesn't creep you out that I read your blog every so often. You can read mine if it makes you feel better. :0) Anyways, I LOVE to sew. I recently started brushing off my 4-H skills and have fallen in love with quilting. My email is katinaroberts@gmail.com.

most definitely...can't wait to be highlighted. HA! You're so great. ;-)

I'm going to say yes, even though I feel that everything I have ever sewed has been wrong: the wrong pattern, the wrong fabric, the wrong size . . . maybe this will provide some sort of help for my horrible problem.

Monica and Dave said...

lorieloo said...

totally in. just wish I could join you in the islands for some serious tea and crafting bizness.

is it too late to be in? Alicia Q. told me about your blog and I love this idea. I talk about sewing to anyone who will listen and try to get everyone I know sewing! I'm going to change the world one sewist at a time. Don't you think everyone would be a little bit happier with some amy butler in their life? I do.

my email is attached to my profile. :)

amylouwho said...

oh yes - and I host a sew & tell every Friday where you can link up to a finish you had that week!
