Don't miss this Christmas Sew-A-Long

Sew-A-Longs are a great way to get motivated and work on projects over time, and with Christmas fast approaching, Sew Mama Sew has just introduced not one, not two, but THREE holiday sewing projects!

The Sew-A-Long will be held each Monday, and the project will be holiday placemats and napkins - according to your fabric choice, these will be perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any holiday.

The second Sew-A-Long will be held each Wednesday and will be for an Advent Calendar. Anyone with small children knows how fun Advent Calendars and how they help little ones understand how long until "the big day".

The third Sew-A-Long will be each Friday and will help you produce a beautiful tree skirt.

Sew Mama Sew will provide a Flickr group to show off your completed goodies!

Looking for an affordable computerized sewing machine?

Here's a deal on Amazon today that is worth noting!

This is the Brother CS6000i Sew Advance Sew Affordable 60-Stitch Computerized Free-Arm Sewing Machine - and it has all the features I like on a machine for quilting - the option to use a button for start/stop vs. just the foot pedal, drop in bobbin, automatic threading, thread cutter, and a nice variety of 60 stitches! But even better, this offer includes additional quilting feet - a walking foot, a spring-action quilting foot and a guide for spacing your quilted lines evenly. And (drum roll) a hard shell case!

Combine this with a FREE SHIPPING offer, and you've got yourself a deal almost too good to pass up. This machine is light weight (16 lbs), which, combined with that free case, makes it perfect for carrying to your favorite quilting classes.

But wait! There's more! (Do I sound like an infommercial??) This includes a free quilting table that extends the size of the bed on the machine! And did I mention it's got a 25 year limited warranty??

The price? Normally $449 - now just $152 with free shipping! Click HERE for this offer.

I have no idea how long this offer will last. If you're in the market for a new machine or a second machine to take to class, this may be an offer you can't pass up.

Includes bed extender for quilting!

I heard some gossip today...

Hmmm... I heard gossip today that, in light of the terrible economy, Quilting on a Budget may be coming back in September (2011)... did you hear anything? Interesting...

Stay tuned.
