Woohoo! Congratulations ladies and Thank you for sharing your great tip, technique or tutorial with us! 

Now don't despair if you didn't win this time because we will do it all over again on Saturday, November 7th! So get those projects and ideas ready to share! We will once again have a Sponsored giveaway from the Fat Quarter Shop and Aurifil thread! So if you didn't get a chance to stop by and tell them Thank you, please drop by and show them some love! 

Now, I had a few questions regarding linking up. First you must link to an ACTUAL POST either on Facebook or your blog. You can link to Flickr but be aware that Flickr is not compatible with a lot of today's tablets and Smart phones so you may not get many visitors. Also you must actually LINK UP. Just leaving a comment on the facebook page or blog post does not qualify as a link up. Linking up is very easy - just follow the steps through the Linky tool that is at the bottom of the Link Party page! Also, be sure to visit the other participants that are linking up! . We all enjoy receiving feedback on our projects and ideas! Plus it is a GREAT way to make new friends and gain lots of inspiration.

Also, please don't forget to add either a text link in your post directing people to the Linky Party or post the Sew Simple Saturday Logo on your blog! . Someone mentioned that they could not get the Button code to work correctly for them. I am not sure why. I removed the code and reworked it, so therefore those of you that it did work for previously,  has now probably had it disappear. Sorry for the inconvenience, if you could please re-post it to your blogs I would greatly appreciate it.  We want all of  your friends to be able to find the party too! 
  Sew get those ideas and projects ready! We will see you right here on November 7th for the next Sew Simple Saturday Linky Party!
Happy stitching everyone!

    1. Hi Kathi,
      Just one link up per person each month, but you may link up as many months as you would like to a current post. The Sew Simple Saturday Linky party is the the first Saturday of each month. I look forward to seeing your tutorials. xo jan

  2. Jan, thanks so much it was the post that got me back to blogging again. I am now planning on next months tutorial or tip or hint, i did have problem with your button and am going to try and do it today on the computer rather than the iPad, never had a problem before there is always a first. Keep up the great blog. 😊
