So excited to finally share about this ‘officially’! I know many of you have been involved in the buzz on flickr.
I am thrilled that we are doing another round of the Zakka Along. Last year was a success as we stitched through the book Zakka Style and many of you wanted to do it again.
We’re doing it again, yay!
This year we will be stitching through Ayumi Takahashi’s new release, Patchwork Please.
This book is ADORABLE. If you follow along with Ayumi’s blog Pink Penguin, then you know what a unique and whimsical sense of style she has.
Her book directly reflects that in every way. The projects are delightful and her fabric choices are inspiring.
We are going to have a blast and I’m grateful to have Debbie from A Quilter’s Table as my partner in crime this year!
Ayumi helped to pull together 19 of her blogging friends to host the stops on the sew along.
Our contributors this year are:
Jennifer Mathis, Ellison Lane Quilts
We are set to start on Monday June 3rd and the sew along will continue for 19 weeks through each project in the book.
The book wasn’t set to release until April 9th, but it was released early and is shipping now.
Patchwork, Please by Ayumi Takahashi
Published by Interweave/F+W Media, Inc, the list price is $22.95
We’re still ironing out a few details, so I will share more info as we get closer to the sew along.
Things will run very much like last year. One of the weekly contributors will share their take on a project each Monday along with any tips or tricks they have to help you.
We will then work to sew up our project that week and will link up anytime between Monday and the following Sunday. A winner will be announced the following Monday along with the new weeks project.
I am floored at the response I have had from sponsors. The list is growing each day for the prizes to be given away each week.
Here are some of the lovely businesses that have joined on, in no particular order.
If you haven’t joined in the flickr group, be sure to go and do that. It’s a great place to ask questions and to meet new people!
You can also grab a button below to share the news of the sew along.
Over the next month I’ll share sourcing ideas for buying your supplies and more details on the sew along dates.
I also have a copy of Patchwork Please to giveaway!
Giveaway is closed, thank you to all who entered! Winner announced here.
The book will ship directly from Interweave and is only open to US readers. I’m sorry International readers 🙁
Just leave a comment below and I’ll choose a winner on Friday, April 5th.
Talk soon! Lindsey
