What do these three people have in common? (Ignore the idiot on the far right.) They all want to help us enjoy our Pyjama Party Tofino Style!
The deadline is in view. (It’s Sunday in case you’ve forgotten.) But you might be feeling a bit jaded, a bit middle-of-the-week, a bit meurgh. Maybe you need a rocket up your toosh. I am happy to supply!
First things first. I thought it might be nice to have a Show And Tell 21st century stylee. So many times I hear people wail ‘If only I was in London!’, ‘Why can’t I join the sewing meet up in Toronto?’ ‘I wish I didn’t live on this gorgeous island so that I could go shopping in Walthamstow!’ Well, now we can meet up wherever we live – with one VERY special guest.
I twisted Tasia’s arm until she couldn’t say ‘no’. The lady behind the pattern, the designer of most beloved patterns to leave Vancouver, has agreed to join us at A VIRTUAL PYJAMA PARTY. The event is being hosted by Shindig and you can sign up here. There are just a few things to bear in mind:
- There’s a top limit of 50 attendees, so first come first serve.
- You’ll need a decent Internet connection. If you don’t have one, it may be gracious to stand aside and allow others to grab a place.
- The hour-long event will take place on Friday 21 June at 3.30pm New York time, 8.30pm UK time and 12.30pm Vancouver time. I’m sorry to anyone outside these time zones, but I don’t own a time travel machine yet. I’m working on it.
- I’d like readers to nominate questions for Tasia in the comments below. Even if you aren’t able to attend the event itself, I might be able to feed your burning question to our star guest.
Right. Got that? Go, sign up!
At the last Pyjama Party I had a giveaway for anyone who shared their pyjamas on the day by leaving a comment on the launch date. Remember – that is Sunday 23 June. If you leave a comment this Sunday with a link to your finished PJ bottoms, you’ll automatically be entered for our Tofino Style giveaway. If you don’t have a blog and still want to enter, just drop me an email at didyoumakethat[at]fastmail[dot]fm with piccies of your PJs.
The giveaway is sooo good…
Sunni of A Fashionable Stitch has very kindly offered a $75 gift certificate to spend at her shop, where she stocks specialist supplies such as the below lucite buckles. $75!!! To spend on any sewing items you like!!!! How amazing is Sunni? Three cheers to that wonderful woman. (And have you SEEN her latest jacket? Swoon. I love Sunni’s style so much.)
Plus, Kenneth D King has offered a copy of his novel, All Grown Up Now. I’m reading this at the moment and it is such FUN! I’m on the adolescent years and, wow, does he bring back what it is to be young, awkward, rebellious and having a riot with good friends. It makes me – almost! – wish I was a teenager again.
There we have it. A lot of love in the sewing world today. Suck some up, hug it to you – then get sewing those PJs. If you haven’t started yet, you still have five days to crack on. You can make a pair of PJ bottoms in five days, for sure! It will really be worth it.
