January Sew-a-long, in the hoop, machine embroidery “The Winners”

Fantastic sew-a-long group

What a wonderful group we have had for our January Sew-a-long. It is by far the largest group we have ever had at 3698 members. This group has only been assembled for 2 weeks and what a 2 weeks it has been. We picked a simple design in the Frangipani mugrug and we have been BLOWN away with the variety in all the stitch outs.

Thank you to everyone who has participated and posted a photo or many photos 🙂

Thank you to those who joined with the best intentions of finishing their mugrug in the allotted time of 2 weeks , we all know that things come up that way lay our best intentions and that is perfectly fine.

Thank you to everyone who have offered their support to those who have asked for help in the group.

and finally thank you all for your unwavering support of Sweet Pea 🌸🌸

We will be announcing all up and coming sew-a-longs in our Sweet Pea Facebook group  ( click on image below to join)
