The dark and stormy nights of winter are fast approaching, lovely sewists, and you know what that means, right? More time inside for sewing, AND more time inside for, well.....other important things in life. How does this relate to the October Challenge Contest? Well, I can't spill all the beans quite yet, but you might just check your stash for silky fabrics. Or any bits o' lace that might need a new home. If you have a few minutes, maybe you could check out some informative blog posts, too. You know, things like http://www.fehrtrade.com/article/681/free-online-lingerie-sewing-resources or http://verypurpleperson.com/. Just sayin'!

I'm sew excited about this challenge contest - I'm hoping I'll have time to sew along!

I've been checking out some patterns (http://afewthreadsloose.blogspot.com/p/a-compendium-of-lingerie-patterns.html) that may be appropriate.

I hope some newer sewists will want to get on board with a quick and easy project (http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/9262/panties-sewing-pattern) for this contest, too.

Happy sewing!

I'm in. I'll be searching my pattern and fabric stash for the perfect project. I bought several of Jan Bones' patterns at ASG Conference back in August so finding just the right pattern won't be a problem.

Thanks a bunch for the hints and research clues!

Thanks Judy - I was going to ask that question!

Ok, I'll admit it. I've been haunting the Contest Discussion board in the hope of getting details of this challenge. I'll calm down and wait patiently now......

Hehe, I think this will be a fun contest too. Glad I got you all thinking about it. :-)

No need to get worried until we get closer - since this contest starts on 10/16 (thanks Judy!). It's a good thing too, since I am out of town for a few days and need a breather before this contest starts!!

I am excited to be the Contest Mgr - I'm a virgin ladies - so go easy on me! ;-) I'll do my best moderating, and you do your best sewing, and we'll all have a grand time along the way. Cheers!!
