Dear everybody in the whole wide world,
You are cordially invited to a sew-up party!
It’s time to assemble the Afghanalong squares into afghans which will then be shipped to Afghanistan for distribution to Afghans.
We’ll have treats, door prizes, AmstelLightTheOfficialBeerOfMason-DixonKnitting, and camaraderie.
When: Sunday, September 12, one to six o’clock
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you’re coming, and we’ll let you know the address.
We have been looking forward to this epic occasion for months, and we hope to see lots of you.
Lots of Mason-Dixon love,
PS This will be the first time Kay and I have ever met in person, so if you’ve been wishing for some drama, come to see whether Kay and I can actually stand being in the same room together.
PSS For those of you living south of the Mason-Dixon Line, there will be sew-up parties in Nashville in late October. Kay will be coming down for those too (assuming we haven’t had some huge catfight about the proper method for sewing up an afghan).
