***Registration extended!! I’ve had a special request from a dear friend who wants to spread the word about the Sewing Buddies! I’m extending registration until April 1 at noon Eastern to allow folks to get all signed up and ready to go. Matches will go out on the same schedule as previously announced. If you HAVE NOT filled out the survey form, Buddies, make sure you get it done by April 1!!
Today at midnight TOMORROW AT NOON registration will CLOSE for the 2015 Sewing Buddy Project!! We’ve got a great, amazing group of folks who are looking for YOU to come play along with us. We’ll be sharing videos, project ideas, downloadables, charity sewing, and community ALL YEAR LONG. I can’t wait to see everything you’ll make and all the friendships that will be formed in our online group space.
Register to join the group, fill out the online form, and you’ll be on your way! Registration closes
at MIDNIGHT Eastern time tonight Wednesday at NOON, and all matches will be mailed out no later than April 2, 2015. Can’t wait to introduce you to your Buddy!!

Hi Deborah – Just wondering when we’ll be assigned a sewing buddy? -Adrienne

Hi, Adrienne! Last of the matches is going out TONIGHT! 🙂

How long should we wait for our buddy to reply to an email? I received my match on the 16th and emailed the next day, but haven’t gotten a reply yet. Just wondering what we do if they never respond.

Keep trying! Some emails get lost, so don’t be too concerned at this early stage about waiting. I’ll be sending out an email to all the Buddies soon, but in between, I recommend that you keep trying until you get a reply!

I have had the same situation with my buddy. Life happens and I want to give her time to respond but wonder how long we should wait.

Hi, I’ve not heard anything since registering either about who my buddy is or from them either. I’ve checked my email…
LbApril 27, 2015 at 6:18 am
Well, I sent another email to my buddy and haven’t heard anything. If they never respond, are we assigned someone else?
DeborahApril 27, 2015 at 2:14 pm
Hmmm… I’m sending out an update to ALL the Buddies next week–let’s hope that will encourage her to get back to you. If not, we’ll move to the next step, which is me contacting your Buddy directly to see if I can help get her motivated! Keep trying (once a week until you get a reply seems reasonable to me), and keep the faith! 🙂

Well, still nothing. It’s been a month now. I’m thinking she’s not going to respond. And I never did see that update go out. I’m wondering when we’ll get to see some content on this.
DeborahMay 6, 2015 at 2:24 pm
Hi, Lissa! I hate that your Buddy hasn’t responded to you yet. The next update is scheduled for this week. If you still have trouble connecting after that point, I’ve had a few latecomers who would like Buddies but missed the deadline–we can find you someone at that point!
Lissa BrooksMay 16, 2015 at 4:40 pm
Was there an update? I’m not sure why I didn’t get it if there was. And nothing from my buddy, so maybe it’s time to find someone else?
DeborahMay 18, 2015 at 3:15 pm
I posted an update for May and sent an email for all the Buddies that should have come to your inbox–there’s also a post about steps to take if you and your Buddy are having trouble connecting. Will you shoot me a quick email if you still haven’t heard from her and we’ll sort it out together? I want to make sure you two hit it off! 🙂
