Alexia Abegg at Craftopia Needs YOUR help...

I'm BACK... I'm going to SEW this weekend!!  Tonight Actually, and I can't wait!  I have a few posts planned for the next few days as I "Get back on the horse"... But for now I am posting this, with only 6 hours remaining in which action can be taken...

Today, I am happy to give a big plug for an amazing sewist, quilter, and craftsperson. Many of you may be familiar with Alexia Abegg, who blogs at Craftopia. And if you don't, you should. Her work is amazing and I have drawn much inspiration from her beautiful creations. I've also been fortunate enough to meet her at Quilt Market, and she is as sweet as she is talented.

So many of us dream of how we can turn our creative passions into a career. Well, Alexia has taken the proverbial bull by the horns. She submitted a proposal to Kickstarter to raise funds to get her pattern business, Green Bee Pattern Co., off of the ground, and she was accepted!

(Not familiar with Kickstarter? They bill themselves as "a new way to fund & follow creativity." They help people kickstart their business ideas to the next level.)

She's nearly reached her goal but, with only a few hours left, she needs some help.

So, my plea today is this: help a fellow member of our vibrant sewing & quilting community realize her dream. Consider checking out Alexia's Kickstarter page and learn more about what she is trying to do. Let's demonstrate how we continue to support one another.

Thanks, all ... and good luck, Alexia!

Until Next Time,
