    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?

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

    Have you got some fabric made into kits ready to sew?

    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?

    I’m so glad you’ll be joining in with the Chickadeez Jan, good to have you aboard. 😀

    The home page is admin territory Jan, sorry, I’m powerless! I just show the spam the door.

    Ok thanks for all you do Beattie.
    Maybe I’ll send an email to the admin – hopefully will encourage a little more participation.

    I am meeting a new morsbagger in our area to show her how to make morsbags at my dressmaking class with my friend Julia Claridge from Bobbins and Buttons pod. I shall take some kits along and see how many bags we can make in the morning.

    Here is the first morsbag for the International Morsbag Challenge – November 2017

    It is for a special lady who works at the Fabric Guild where we meet every week to make morsbags. She is in our thoughts at the moment and yes she loves skulls!
