The Friday Blog Round-Up 4/23/10

For those who are unfamiliar with this series, I try to do a round-up on Friday of blog posts I’ve found helpful during the past week.   Mostly I stick with the blogs on our blogroll.  If you have a blog you would like us to consider including on our blogroll, you can always leave a comment here, or e-mail me at kristine dot shreve at myenmart dot com.

First up, we have a great project called One Million Shirts for Africa, which I found out about through the Groupe Stahl blog.   There are people in many parts of the world who need a great number of things, and one of the things they need is clothing.   The One Million Shirts project is collected clean, gently used t-shirts to send to people who are in need.  It’s a great cause and a terrific way to give concrete help.  I’m thinking I have a few t-shirts I could spare.

There are many companies that I have affection for, but I’m really starting to enjoy Odd Guy Art.  Their blog is fun and it looks like there new web site, which goes live soon, will be fun as well.   Who wouldn’t love a company with the slogan “where art and wit meet cotton”?  If you haven’t stopped by their blog yet, please go take a look.

My fellow Stitches blogger, Erich, has a great post about procrastination and how to overcome it, on the Stitches web site.   I would bet this is a problem that plagues almost everyone, and Erich has some great tips for overcoming procrastination and getting things done.

This may not be all that relevant for most of us this time of year, but the snow and cold will be back before we know it.  If you’re looking to cash in one some Winter apparel dollars, you may want to check out this tutorial on how to embroider gloves.   This is from the Secrets of Embroidery Blog.

A new blog that has just been added to the blogroll is The Embroidery Coach blog.  There are a lot of great tips and ideas here, including some information on how to find a good digitizer.   If you run an embroidery business, this blog is a great resource.

Finally, before I close today, I want to ask a question.  I would love to pump up the blogroll on the SubliStuff blog, but I’m having trouble finding independent blogs about sublimation.    If anyone has a favorite sublimation blog, please share the link with us.   Thanks.
