Hi, Gals -
We are getting close to the May 10th start of the Birds of a Feather Stitch ALong (SAL) from Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle and Thread. I just emailed her and asked whether the first pattern would be in the shops by May 10. She said that the distributor was working toward that goal, but, of course, actual dates might vary with shipping distances, etc. It soulds like everything could be available at The Ewe on the 10th.
I told Robin that I will pick up her things and mail them to her. Linda - Carol will bring your items to Canton for you. I assume everyone else will pick up their own orders and/or pick up for friends, etc. Let me know if I can help anyone.
This blog will be one that each of the eleven participants in our group will be able to post thoughts and photos to as we progress through this SAL. It should be a fun summer project.
Posting isn't hard, but some of you will have a little learning to do. If you don't already have a Google account, I would suggest opening one (don't forget to write down your password!). You will need to load digital photos onto your computer, if you plan to post photos...and photos make everything more fun. Again, this isn't difficult. Maybe a nearby friend or relative can help you get started. I'll try to help those that I see often. In some cases, maybe a friend can post for you. The more the merrier, so I hope I can motivate most of you to participate.
Our blog address will be http://stitchingwithfriends.blogspot.com/
To post to this blog, go to http://blogspot.com/ and our blog should come up. Go to New Post. Type what you would like to say. To post a photo, hit the Insert Image button. This will allow you to browse through the photos that you have loaded onto your computer and saved with a title so you can find them (!) and then follow the steps to post to the blog. Once you are happy with what you have done, just click on Publish Post.
Some of you will know this. Some of you might have a little trouble at first. All of you can learn this! It will be fun. It will!
