Rosie suggested another International Morsbagging Weekend on another thread and it got some support, so let’s do it!
How to participate? Over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November you set aside some time to sew morsbags. We try to do updates as we sew, two bags made, six bags made, and so on, and keep a running total of everybody’s input so we know how many bags have been made over the weekend. You update your pod’s tally as normal.
We’ll be out on Sunday but I’m in on Saturday! 😀 Any other takers?November 7, 2017 at 5:32 pm #7668
I’ll join you from the USA!

Welcome Ursula! Wouldn’t it be good if your labels arrive in time for the International Morsbagging Weekend!

I’m happy to tell you that The Chickadeez and Friends in Redmond, Washington, USA will be holding a Sew-A-Thon and bag handout this Saturday, November 18th – so we’ll definitely be participating in the Internation Give A Way. Any readers in the area, please stop by and say Hello to us at the Redmond Regional Library – we’d love to meet you! Who knows, we might even have some goodies to share.
I did notice that the announcement about the give a way on the Home page still lists the 2016 date – does anyone know how to update that?
