Super Mail, Super Bowl Sew-Along!

Today is a driving day and I’m running a bit behind so..yes, you have to endure just another quickie from me!

This photo is of the latest birthday mail that keeps pouring in! Thank you Kylie for being the instigator in all this snail mail goodness. I love your birthday cake block….hand button hole stitched even! And to Saska who sent me a gift card for Braum's ice cream! It's the best low cal gift ever since there are no Braum's near where I live --- I have to wait to hit somewhere near Texas to be able to redeem it! LOL! Love it!

All the blocks that have come have been wonderful, and the cards witty, humorous, thoughtful, and have made me feel so good! It really has been a birthday to remember, and I can’t thank you all enough!

I got an email from Nonnie asking the following:

Dear Bonnie, Can you announce our sew in on Twitter.... Your readers can catch up on the ORCA BAY MYSTERY QUILT or any other projects they want to work on.

Thank you for any help!

I’m happy to post this! I only wish I could join you! I’ll be giving a lecture Sunday afternoon in Carlisle PA --- but might get some sewing in Sunday morning since I have kitted up projects, and filled Shamu with the blue wizard machine and my sew ezi table! I can hardly wait to get there this evening ----and set up!

For more information on the twitter Super Bowl Sew-A-thon contact Nonnie!

Here are the particulars on the sew-in:

NEW Twitter Sew In - Super Bowl Style
The holiday sew ins were so fantastic, that Katie suggested we do another online sew-in for the super bowl.


If you missed the last one, log in to twitter, open up a client such as tweetchat.com, link it to your twitter profile, and enter SBSI on the top and it will take care of managing all the tweets that relate to the sew in. Also tweetchat automatically enters the SBSI hashtag on the back of all your tweets out to the rest of us.

Or you could always just search twitter for SBSI during the time of the sew in. But then you have to remember to add:

#SBSI at the back (front anywhere) of your tweets.

Sew some, tweet some, and hopefully have some laughs and fun and encouragement. It's fast, furious, hard to follow sometimes, but a lot of fun. Control how much you say/read if you really want to sew, but it's a great social time.

I don't know about time, but I'll be sewing "early" for the US and will be up early with my machine going. This would be before the superbowl. Pregame, very pregame.
Questions, shoot us back, very 'last minute idea', but a great one. Already getting a little bit of buzz about it on twitter.


COME to TWITTER and connect with us!

Post pictures on your blog, in Pintrest or on FLICKER or any picture posting site ... then post a link on TWITTER... We have a fun time and want you to join us.

***Note*** I am just passing on the information for this sew in. I don’t twitter myself, I have too much to take care of between the blog, email and facebook and the quiltvillechat@yahoogroups.com email list. Contact NONNIE for more information, and have fun with it!


  1. Thanks for announcing our sew in Bonnie! I keep hoping one year you'll be home so you can host another Bargello Bowl during the Superbowl!

  2. I knew you'd come back to our part of the country to use the Braum's card!

      Bonnie - you can also use that card in Kansas! Pittsburg, Wichita, Emporia, Hutchinson...probably a lot more places

  3. If you do make a birthday quilt with all those blocks, I can't wait to see how you do it! : )

  4. I don't twitter or Facebook either but the headlines this morning in the Wall Street journal says the site has 845 million users!
    It is trying to go public with its stocks....look to buy Facebook stock this Spring...the company had 1 billion dollars in PROFIT last year! All from a kid playing on the computer in his dorm room instead of doing his homework......go figure.

    So were the cards and blocks sent from a twitter or facebook group?
    Sorry I missed it :0)

    Safe travels and Happy sewing :0)
