Round UpHappy New Year friends of First Fridays!

It’s your old pal TJ from Studio Mailbox here to bring you a wrap-up of our 2016 monthly posts.  What a year full of fun, laughter, and most importantly, sewing kindness.

Let’s have a look back at everything that went on:

January – I shared a First Friday Round-Up from 2015


February – Heather called for an annual theme and the RASK campaign was launched

March – I stitched up a giant hole in the knee of my jeans and shared tons of links supporting cool stuff

April – Christa’s dog ate her couch and since reupholstery is way above my pay grade, it was Grandma to the rescue!

May – I was invited to my first sewing retreat

June – I did my part to sew tiny books for an amazing art installation

July – Quick and easy scrap buster cards

August – Heather lost her beloved dog Chewie and it was time to make a Pet Sympathy card

September –  After sucking my skirt up in the vacuum cleaner it was time to learn how to hem

October – No post!  Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

November – It was time to update my little boy’s room and get rid of baby fabric

December – Random Acts of Sewing Kindness came full circle, finishing off the year with a sewing lesson with Christa.

In case you haven’t had enough, here’s the First Friday Round-Up from 2014, the year I was in quilt mode.

Remember First Fridays started way back in 2012 when I created a meme for Heather’s birthday and continued Sewing Memes throughout 2013. (Some of which I must admit are pretty cringe worthy looking back at it now, but what did I know?  I was making memes before there were apps for them).
