In October 2021, I chose lovely earth tone Stonehenge fabrics to test my Echo Point placemat idea, thinking if it worked I'd have not only a pattern but also new placemats for Thanksgiving. The idea worked out and I went on to write the pattern, but somehow I did not have finished placemats for Thanksgiving 2021
The calendar on my wall (it's a quilty comics calendar from By the Yard) assures me that Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up fast, again. I'm determined to have my new Thanksgiving and Christmas sets ready for the 2022 season. That means I need to commit to setting aside time to sew them.
What's the best way to make myself accountable to actually set that time aside? Invite people to join me! Then I have to show up :) So, who wants to join me virtually the first weekend in November for some dedicated sewing time?
Placemat Party 2022
November 4th - 6th
I'm calling it a Placemat Party because that's where my focus will be, but you could sew whatever you like. I'm going to be live on Zoom several times over the course of the weekend and hope you'll join me to share what you're sewing and so we can cheer each other on. You can participate as much or as little as you like, as time and inclination allows.
I also created a Quilting with Canuck Quilter Facebook group where members can post to share pictures and chat in the comments all weekend and beyond. I'm going to keep this group open past the party. The party was just a little nudge to make me finally set up a group.
This is a completely free event. You can participate on Zoom, Facebook, or both. There's no need to register, though you need a Facebook account to participate in the Facebook group. You can sign up here to get the schedule, zoom link, reminders and updates delivered to your email inbox.
What's on your project list between now and Christmas? I hope to chat with you in November and cheer you on.
PS. If you need placemat inspiration, you can check out all my placemat patterns in my Etsy shop.
