My Modern Day Sewing Circle
Lazies, From time to time, I feature projects on my blog made by members of the Lazy Girl Designs Yahoo group. The Lazies in the group are always up to something interesting, putting their own special touches on my designs, and sharing a fun story about how the project came to be in what has become a modern day sewing circle for Lazies.
I can only post so many of those pictures and stories on my blog, so if you’d like to see more, consider joining our Yahoo group, we’d love to have you.
See for yourself
I’ve never told you much about our Yahoo group, so let me invite you to take a look for yourself and tell you a bit about our group. Below is a slide show of some of the beautiful creations entered in the recent ‘Jump In June’ challenge hosted in the Yahoo group (yes, we have group activities and events).

Purpose of the Yahoo group
Our group is both a resource center and a meeting place for all things Lazy as well as anything sewing/quilting related. I’m there most days, checking in to see what everyone is up to, who made what, who has questions, etc.
Tell me more
The group is free to join. You can be active and post messages/pictures, or just hang out and see what everyone else is doing. We have lots of members who do that.
What is it like in the group?
We have one basic rule – be nice/play nice. We are an exceptionally well-behaved group, free of annoying spammers and advertisers. Aside from me, we have three fabulous Lazy moderators who help host our group: Susie, Regina and Lish – Lazy Girls Extraordinary!
I asked the Lazies to tell you about the group and here is what they had to say:
I know for myself that if I can see what others are making it makes me want to make it too!! Even if I’ve already made a ton!! The creativity of others inspires me and I just plain love seeing what others are doing and how they do it!!!

I just love seeing how our Lazies think beyond the pattern and really make these bags their own. Creative uses of fabrics, embellishments (lots of yo-yo’s!!), found items, and BLING all combine to make every bag a one of a kind.
Lazy Girl and Group Moderator Regina
We share, we love our work, we support each other, and our interests are all the same. That being, our love of sewing and working together as a group.

The group started in January of 2005 and we’ve grown to more than 3,600 members from around the world. On behalf of the Lazies, we’d love for you to consider joining us. Here’s the link to the group.
