Announcing the Veteran’s Day Sew in! Now with Google Hangout!

Pam from Hip to Be a Square podcast and blog fame has been chatting with me regarding the Veteran’s Day Sew In that is coming up! Normally we chat on Twitter and that’s it but I thought it might be fun to do something a little different!

We will still be chatting on Twitter throughout the day and if you want to keep up with Twitter chat easily here is a handy website that will help you do that: TweetChat following #VDSI

Along with TweetChat we will be having our very first Google Hangout! I’ve never done it before but it seems pretty simple. Up to 10 webcams can connect and unlimited viewers/chatters in the chatroom. We can see each others projects and sewing areas and chat “in person” in real time!

The link to join Google Hangout will be shared on Twitter the day of the sew in since we can’t generate it before then. I believe the hangout will be recorded automatically and we can share it on YouTube when it is over.

I’m looking forward to reorganizing my thread stash on Veteran’s Day! I hope you will join us. Several have already RSVP’d to the hangout.

    Hi, I would enjoy being part of the Veteran’s Day Google chat. I should be stitching a binding down by Sunday. Like Pam, I will have my notebook in a position where I am not looking down into it. I will figure out some way to set it up higher for the chat.

    I can be reached at
