1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

Good Luck with both - don't reply!! too ,cuh to do....
re the slackers - one last email and then chop 'em!! - well be a bit gentle - tell them if they dont reply this time - they will have to be removed to allow new people (and they take their chances to rejoin)

I agree Susan, personal emails and no replies, to me, means they're not interested in being part of SAL. Hope you meet your goal, Chooky.

I think you have given ample opportunity for staying.....you email regularly and if they dont reply then obviously something has happened or they arent interested anymore.

Hope you are achieving lots!

I hope you had a productive weekend my friend. I think you do an amazing job with this blog so if you have emailed and had no reply I say chop them and let some really interested ladies join. Sounds harsh I know but you have given ample notice...Godd luck xo
