In one week’s time, some nice lady holding a stop watch is going to sit me down in front of a sewing machine, in the middle of the Toronto Convention Centre and hand me a basket full of mystery sewing supplies. Then she’s going to shout “GO!”Â
GAH! What have I gotten myself into?! Â Actually, I’ve gotten myself into the Canada Sews Mystery Basket Sewing Challenge at this year’s Â CreativFestival. Â I have no idea what I’m going to have to make, but I know I’m supposed to use all the items in the basket.

The advantage I think, that is going toÂ make me a winner, is I won’t be sewing with a child on my lap. Â Sometimes multiple children on my lap. It’s like those runners who train while wearing weights, then suddenly take them off before the big raceÂ andÂ go flying through the finish line. That’s going to be me!
Come with me! Seriously, it’s not for professionals, and there are huge prizes to be won. Just fill out the form here.Â Or let me know, and I’ll point you in the right direction.
In fact, just for coming to the CreativFestival this weekend, Oct 23, 24, 25th 2014, Janome is giving away the chance to win a $10,000 sewing studio. Not to mention a free tote bag to the first 500 people each day.
I’m assured the challenge will be easy enough for beginners, if you’re not up for it at the very least come and cheer for me!
Hope to see you there!
