Mood Sewing Network

I am sure you have heard about the Mood Sewing Network?  It started in September and here is the information
“Welcome to the Mood Sewing Network, a collective of fashion sewing bloggers from across the U.S. The nine women we've chosen to help us launch the Mood Sewing Network represent a cross-section of home sewers: some still consider themselves beginners, while others are at the more experienced end of the sewing spectrum. No matter where they fall, we admire their enthusiasm for sewing and their love of fabric. Follow their adventures here in sewing and creating with Mood fabrics and use them for inspiration with your own sewing projects.”
Mood Fabrics is expanding the Network and guess who has been invited to be part of this sewing network?  Yes ME!!!!






 I am so thrilled and honored to have been asked by Mood to participate.  To join this group of  fabulous Mood Sewing Bloggers is a dream come true.  I have been following Amanda, Carolyn, Erica, Marina, GingerMakes, Goodbye Valentino, Miss Celie, Oonaballoona, and Sew Well since the Mood Sewing Network was announced (and some of them way before that). 

Here are the details on how it works for me:
Each month Mood Fabrics provides the Mood Sewing Network bloggers with an allowance for fabric that they can spend online at MoodFabrics.com or in our NYC or LA stores. The bloggers, in turn, will sew a garment with Mood fabrics each month and then blog about it on their own blogs and here.
My first box of Mood fabric goodness is on the way and I can’t wait to open it and see my goodies.  My mind is racing with all the garments I want to sew over the next few months.
I have started posting more on Instagram, so if you want to follow my Mood Sewing Network search for girlsinthegarden.
