In December, I'm going to embark with a few other people on a
"sew-along" adventure targeted at beginners. My sewing skills are
limited to sort-of-putting back together fallen buttons and er that's

Thankfully Cheryl knows a thing or two about
sewing (all that Lilypad
awesomeness must be good practice!) and didn't freak out when I called

The actual sew along adventure begins on December 6th, until then it's
about getting the pattern and fabric. There will likely be impromptu
meetings in Tog to work on this, you're very
welcome to join in if interested! (We can make all sorts of terrible
mistakes together \o/)
