Upcoming Holiday Tutorials and Sewing With Certainty

I’m excited to share with you two upcoming blog hops I am involved with this fall.

The first is a Holiday Tutorial blog hop hosted by two fabulous gals, Heather and Megan from Quilt Story.

Holiday TutorialsThe holiday tutorial series will feature 10 different bloggers (including yours truly) sharing tutorials for fun gift projects this holiday season. The complete schedule is below. I would encourage you to visit each of the blogs now and bookmark them or add them to your bloglovin’ feed so you can catch them as they happen!

Sewing with CertaintyThe next blog event is hosted by Jessica from Quilty Habit.

She’s presenting a series entitled, “Sewing with Certainty“, geared toward helping you improve your sewing and gaining confidence at the same time!

Since machine quilting is near and dear to my heart, I will be expounding upon that topic as part of her series.

The unique thing I love about Jessica’s series is that it will include a linky party with prizes! Every two weeks from now through February, she will blog about a particular topic. In turn, you can expound upon each topic in your own blogs and talk about ways you are gaining confidence in this particular area. I think it sounds like a lot of fun.

Remember, each linky party is open for the entire series, giving you plenty of time to participate. I’ve included the full schedule (subject to change), including a  link to the first party, underlined below:

  • Sunday, November 3: First Linky Party! Write a blog post about the crafty areas in which you want to gain more confidence, and/or discuss a project you will be working on during the series that will help you gain this confidence.
  • November 10: Choosing Fabrics
  • November 24: Perfection
  • December 8: Approaching New Patterns/Concepts
  • December 22: Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) with Christa of Christa Quilts
  • January 5: Creating Your Own Designs
  • January 19: Showcasing Your Work
  • February 2: Writing A Sewing Blog
  • February 9: Final Linkup! Write a blog post about a project you worked on during the series that helped you gain confidence in your skills.
  • February 16: Prizes awarded from all Linky Parties!

Happy hopping! :-)
