Winner of Sew Modern Giveaway

Congratulations to #56, Anne! She is the winner of the Sew Modern giveaway.

And I thought I’d mention this internet piracy legislation. What’s SOPA about? I’m no expert, but it seems to me that this is misguided legislation that would open the door to censorship by forcing internet service providers to monitor content and block sites that they feel are violating copyright laws, but will also allow for pending lawsuits to shut down websites with questionable content, even before a judgment has been made. Watch this video to learn more, then make up your own mind. You can sign google’s petition here and contact your local representatives with this quick link on wikipedia. Looks like SOPA won’t make it and some of its provisions have already been changed, but there is another bill called PIPA, which is also problematic. Perhaps laws regarding the internet should be made by people who know something about the internet? I’m guessing half of the Senate has their aides print out e-mails!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway

    and truly, thank you for mentioning SOPA. It will GREATLY affect crafters and how we use the internet to communicate, share and inspire each other and I’m disappointed that more crafty bloggers aren’t mentioning it!

    You rock.
