I have been keeping a secret, a really exciting secret.  Working on something behind the scenes which I am finally able to announce…

Introducing the Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores Girls Night Out Blogger Get Together!

Blogging gives us a platform to share our common interests, our daily life, our goals and aspirations, and helps us connect with others in a powerful way. We form meaningful friendships with people through the written word. And when the opportunity arises for us to meet up, we jump at the chance to rejoice and celebrate those friendships. 

As I will be heading out west this October for the annual Sewing Summit Convention, I thought it would be a missed opportunity not to meet up with some of my fantastic blogging friends for a get together. After writing a few e-mails to see if there was interest in such an event, Girl’s Night Out was born.

Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores Girl’s Night Out is an event where bloggers can gather in an intimate setting of friends to meet, laugh, and share our passion for sewing. It is our goal to unite the on-line sewing community in a more personal way, cultivating stronger friendships that will enhance the sewing community.

With some of the most influential sewing bloggers in attendance, and an equally incredible group of Sponsors to match, it is my honor to host this unbelievable event. 

But there is more, because we want you in on the fun too!!!
