Summertime is creeping up and it is the perfect time to start thinking about time off with family, vacations and weekend get-aways… and what better way to pack than with a Weekender Bag by Amy Butler!


The Weekender Sew Along will take place on Wednesdays from April 30th – May 28th  finishing just in time for Memorial day weekend! Please join Chrissy of Sew Lux Fabrics & Christen of Love By Hand as we all work on different versions of this popular bag. Will you create the pattern as written with Christen? Add some patchwork flair along with Chrissy? Or work on some english paper piecing additions for your bag along with me? We hope you will join us and stay tuned for news about our fantastic sponsors and prizes!

    Just saw your sew-along on Swoodson Says and I think I’m going to have to join in on this one! I could use a nice big weekender bag for this summer and could definitely use your bag-making expertise!

I would love to hear from you, let's chat!
