... and you know who you are :wink:

Living on Long Island, there aren't many shops that carry fabric or offer classes. And those that do, are very limited. Quilt shops are far and few between. Even our local PBS station has dropped some of our favorite sewing shows. So networking with other crafters/sewers isn't always easy.  I am grateful for the sewing, embroidery,  quilting  blogs and forums that allow us to share our creativity. I am always inspired by the photos I see on these sites. 

This mug rug pattern is for all that keep the tradition of sewing alive. 

From now until December 23rd, I am offering this pattern free with any pattern purchase from My Craftsy Pattern Store.
