Minutes for Me, May for Me, and a Giveaway!

UPDATE: The Giveaway Ended at Midnight on the 29th and the 3 winners were contacted by Email. Check out the new Giveaways starting on May 1st!

I started the May for Me Celebration as a way to make it OK to take time for yourself!  

Yes --- It's Minutes for Me and Minutes for You!

This year for the May for Me Celebration, I plan to spend lots of minutes sewing, quilting, crafting, and spending time with family and friends --- Minutes for Me!

I started in January by taking time for me with some friends once a month at a local coffee shop --- Timerlane Coffee Shop in Boscobel, Wisconsin.  We enjoy time together learning a new craft, we have lunch and chat.

One week, we learned how to hand sew Hexies from a circle.

One month, we made greeting cards that look like a quilt.

And this month -- this Friday April 17th we are going to learn how to hand sew this cute little pouch bag.

If you live in Southwestern Wisconsin and you would like to join us at the Timberlane Coffee Shop in Boscobel, Wisconsin? Please send me an email and let me know you will be there.  Friday, April 17th from 10am to 2pm.  Each person buys their own lunch. You can bring one item for show and tell. And then we share a craft.  It is very informal. We chat, we laugh, and we enjoy time together. Come and join in on the fun!

Again this year, I will host Giveaways every week of my PDF Quilt Patterns! You can check all of them out at my Craftsy Store. I have a couple FREE PDF Patterns in my Craftsy Store. Check it out at:

I still have dates left. I want you to share?
Send me an email at  Marcia@craftysewing.com   

Do you want to share your story?  I am looking for people who want to share what they do, what makes them happy and how they do it.  It's simple --- Tell us your story and share a few photos.  It can be short or long!

What a great plan. I just self taught myself the hexie flower thing, I made a tiny one to put on a little purse I made for Janet Wecker Frisch with her fabric. She had a Valentines challenge and I ... I can't believe it, but I won. There were so many incredible ones, they were just... all of them really great.
I think this idea is good.
It is so fun to spend time with friends and made things. One day I want to start a sewing club at my house.... so many of my daughters friends (both daughters) want to learn to sew.
I love what you made, you are always an inspiration.
