Swag Bag Sewing Bee!

Last weekend a group of us crazy crafters from EtsyRain - Puget Sound Indie Arts (PSIA is our new group name for use in the world outside of Etsy) had a Swag Bag Sewing Bee. What in the world is a Swag Bag Sewing Bee you may ask, it was an afternoon of sewin' and rotary cuttin' to make beautiful fabric swag bags for the first Puget Sound Indie Arts craft fair. Yay! A great little gaggle of us gals (and guy) got together. Some cut the pieces, some put together the pieces, others - more skilled at sewing- sewed up the bags just right, and then we put drawstrings on to finish.

These little bags will get filled up with awesome EtsyRain - PSIA swag and will go to the first 50 people through the door. When and where will we be giving these treasures away...? I thought you'd never ask! The show will take place May 10th, from 9:30am - 4:30pm at Artworks in Edmonds, WA. There will be 25 amazing artisans with wonderful handmade items to take home with you. So mark your calendars if you are in the Puget Sound area, and bring your mother for a one of a kind Mother's day weekend experience.

Great post! I've been meaning to get around to posting about the fun we have this weekend but haven't managed it yet.
Since the bags are in my possession I might pick out some of my favs to photograph tonight. (that way I won't be as tempted to steal some for myself, right? :P)

That looks like you guys had so much fun! I hate that I work so many weekend days :(
That may be changing soon though. Shhhh, it's a secret.
Great post Meghan!
