#OHcraft sew-in and a PRIZE!

The 1st annual #OHcraft sew-in was November 8-10 and we had so much fun!!!

55 ladies from California, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee came together to Hueston Woods for a weekend full of no-pressure crafting, yummy food and making new friends!

We all had such a great time together! I was also so pleased that I was able to pull off surprise goody bags and prizes for everyone without the guests expecting them... I love surprises!!!

Such wonderful people donated AMAZING gifts to our little sew-in; I was so touched by everyone's generosity!!! A big thank you to:
 

You all BLEW ME AWAY with all of the wonderful goodies you graciously send to the sew-in guests; I can't thank you enough!!!

If you weren't able to come to our sew-in, never fear! There is a chance to win some of the goodies right HERE! (Did you catch that poetry right there?)

Thanks to the generosity of Robert Kaufman, I have two give-aways for two lucky folks to win! What's up for grabs? A roll of white skinny strips and a roll of rainbow skinny strips- one of each! :)
