Last Call for a 2012 Sewing Buddy!

We are spending a few days of our childrens’ spring break lounging at the lake right now, but I’m still sending out emails, because I’m too excited not to: I’m writing Sewing Buddy introductions to welcome new Sewing Buddies for 2012!  No April Fools, if you got an email from me today, you just met your new sewing pen pal.  Woot!

  1. This sound like a lot of fun. I have been sewing for many years, but just got a serger….lot’s to learn! I have been trying to teach myself new tricks….could use a friend to work with.

    Thanks for the opportunity to connect with another sewing person!

  2. How could I “ALMOST” have missed this fantastic opportunity. This is EXACTLY what I want/need!! I hope I’m not too late.

    I’m from Ontario, Canada if that helps :)

  3. I almost missed this as well. I’ve been wanting to do this since I read about this last year. :)

  4. I would love to have a sewing buddy. I’ve been learning how to sew on my own for the past year. Thanks!

  5. I would love to have a sewing buddy (if I’m not too late). I’ve been sewing for a little while now but have been sort of stuck on advanced beginner because I’ve been a little frightened to stretch myself, I need some encouragement!

  6. I don’t know how I missed this awesome opportunity either. Please hook me up.

  7. I took your essentials class this winter and loved it. I need to sign up for this as well. Count me in!

  8. It just occurred to me that you probably want to know at which level I sew. I’m a beginner in the first year of learning but I’m trying to sew daily to improve. Thanks for organizing this. I always do better when there’s accountability :)

  9. I want a buddy! The gorgeous weather had me outside all weekend and not reading my blogs so I’m a bit behind! I had so much fun last year and still talk to my buddy. Can’t wait to see what goes on this year. My fav number is 4 color is blue. Thanks!

  10. Just stumbled upon your blog today via a retweet. I live this idea! Sign me up, please. I’d classify myself as a beginning sewer. Fear keeps me from progressing. I’ve made some small curtains for my bathroom, a sad apron, baby blankets, etc. patterns scare me! Anyway, hope you can match me up. Financially, a lot of my sewing has to be upcycled

  11. If not too late, pls sign me up! 14. Yellow ot hot pink. :-))

  12. I’m terrified but would like to join. I’ve been sewing a bit, but am trying to work it in a few days a week (even 15 minutes). Goals are good, buddies are good. :)

  13. I participated last year and am still going strong with my 2011 buddy, but I’d love to add another! (Note: I signed up on the original post but I think I forgot my favorite color — Teal!) THANKS! :D

  14. What a great idea! I could certainly use the support and inspiration sometimes. I’d love to participate in Sewing Buddies 2012!

  15. Ahhh i just stumbled across your blog and love this idea. If its not too late i would love to participate!

  16. I just found this! This sounds like so much fun! I’ll have to remember for next year! Hope you all have a great time doing sewing!

  17. Please send me a sewing buddy. I am 59 years old with the greatest passion to learn how to sew. I am not a beginner since I Know how to sew darts, simple elastic pants, skirts, everything simple. But I do have l the sewing machine and fabric needed to sew professionally, But I do not have anyone that is available to teach me my passion in learning how to understand advanced sewing techniques. Please help me. I have been invited to join a sewing group that meets on the last Sunday of the month at the B-Sew Inn. But unfortunately I am in trouble with pain and disease so I have not been able to attend. I believe that learning how to sew and be creative would inspire me to try to be a better person and it sounds like a lot of fun to learn. I need a teacher and a partner. I would be a good partner. I really do care so much about dressmaking and bias making and dress slacks and blouses. I do not know how to sew button holes. I can sew pillow shams and pillow envelopes. I understand seams.. Thank you for your time and help. Pat
