Joann Fabric & Craft Stores Girl's Night Out Event and Contest

This time next week, I will be frantically trying to pack my bags for the Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City!  I'm so excited that I get to attend!  I first mentioned the idea of going to the Sewing Summit to my husband sometime last November/December, and as soon as they announced the dates of this year's conference, he suggested I go for my birthday.  I sure do love him!

I then met Rachael of imagine gnats by way of winning a contest on See Kate Sew.  Soon afterward, Rachael and I decided we would room together at the Sewing Summit.  We've been sharing our excitement about the upcoming event all year long, and I can't wait to finally meet her in person!  Along the way, we've picked up a couple of other notable bloggers that we will be rooming with as well--Sara from Sew Sweetness and Lindsay from Lindsay Sews.  So looking forward to meeting them as well!

Which leads me to the topic of this post.  My lovely roommate, Rachael, forwarded to me information on this awesome by invitation only Girl's Night Out event that Jessica from Me Sew Crazy put together.  Of course I jumped at the chance to attend, and I can't wait to meet and chat with all the wonderful women who will be at the dinner!  I hope to learn a thing or two about sewing and blogging from them all, and maybe, just maybe, I'll have something insightful and useful to share with them as well.

Joann Fabric & Craft Stores (I shop there often, don't you?) will be sponsoring the Girl's Night Out dinner as well as Pellon, Michael Miller Fabrics, Coats & Clark, the Fat Quarter Shop, and The Ribbon Retreat.  From what I understand, they have all offered up some wonderful items to be handed out to the attendees as swag at the event!  Yeah!

Not everyone can attend the dinner, but everyone does have a chance to win some terrific swag from the generous sponsors!  Here's how...

How awesome is that?!  If you don't use Instagram or Twitter, just head over to Me Sew Crazy and leave your comment on the contest post for an entry and to read the fine print on the contest rules.
