Make yourself a cup of hot tea, find a comfy couch corner, and join me in a live chat over at Pattern Review! Here's the topic/time:

"Sewing, Motherhood, and Other Things"
Chat with author of Sew Liberated - Meg McElwee
Wednesday, May. 4th 1 PM Eastern

(10AM Pacific, 11AM Mountain, 12PM Central, 3 AM Thurs May 5th Sydney Australia)

I'll be revealing my three new pattern designs (that's one of them up there - the Mariposa Tee) as well as the news about my new book, Growing Up Sew Liberated , which is set to hit the shelves in the beginning of June. 

I'm not sure how long the chat will last, but as long as Finn stays napping, I'm good to go!

Here's how to access the chat:
