Ruby Star Wrap-Along

Christmas is right around the corner - and I mean right around the corner! Are you ready?

Those of us who attended Sewing Summit were lucky enough to receive a copy of Melody Miller's book, Ruby Star Wrapping. It is awesome. There are so many wonderful ideas in this book to give your gift-giving an added personal touch.

To kick start a wild sewing and crafting and gift-buying frenzy, Sukie has organized a really fun event to get you as ready as possible for the holiday season. And rather than a sew-along or quilt-along, this one will be a wrap-along!

Ruby Star Wrap-Along

To participate, grab your books and let's get movin'! If you don't have a copy yet, they are available for purchase here:

The wrap-along will run from November 7 through December 19. Every week, several of our favorite bloggers will post about their takes on some of the projects from the book.
