At first I thought it might be a joint charity-focused project like a quilt or such. But no, it's just about individual sewing projects using McCall's, Simplicity or Butterick sewing patterns, or other personal design inspirations. It's organized on Facebook, and it promotes McCall's products, as well as highlighting their affiliated sewing bloggers around the world. Everyone who joins the project submits their final design sometime in April, and there will be contest winners apparently. I'm not interested in joining the contest. But it's nice to be inspired by some of the projects since I do some sewing.

(Ha ha, see a couple of Instagram replies where the commenters are honest about being 'jealous' of Meghan; I think it's best to examine exactly what they believe they're jealous of, and then try to come away inspired instead. )

Oh, how cool! I sew most of my clothes as well as my daughter's and I know many of the bloggers mentioned on the McCall's blog. Maybe I should join the sewalong.

Yes, you should definitely go for it. Sounds like a lot of fun, and a cool way to use one's off time in anticipation of the upcoming royal wedding.

Since there's been a lot of discussion about whether or not Meghan's Dad will be able to accompany her down the aisle, I am reiterating my hope that perhaps he will be able to, or if not that he at least will make it to the wedding. In any case, there are plenty of other alternatives. The following is my order of preference:

Her father
her mother and her father
her mother
Markus Anderson (friend who is like an older brother to her)
Alvin Joffrey Ragland (her two years younger uncle)
Mark Dyer (Prince Harry's mentor and friend)
Ben Mulroney (her best friend Jessica's husband)
Christopher Hale (her nephew)
Prince Charles

There are plenty of options. With all of those options (and there are surely more), why should Meghan walk down the aisle alone?

Please note that off-topic posts (and responses) have been deleted. Let us work on the basis that Meghan will most likely be accompanied down the aisle by someone as is tradition and move on from other topics which might be better discusses elsewhere. Thank you.

It’s a very historic moment. Everyone on that panel will be watching the wedding. A great deal of Americans will tune in.

I am sure tons of people will tune in. Representation matters. Just look at Black Panther. Look at how little girls flocked to Wonder Women. Not trying to place anything on Meghan cause all she did was fall in love but the bigger picture and statement is important. So yeah many will be watching.

When they visited Brixton they interviewed a bi-racial woman in her early twenties. She said she wasn't a Royal fan but since the advent of Meghan, she felt the BRF was more relevant to her. More inclusive.

So not just Americans will be watching, but a whole new demographic in the UK.

The role of a lifetime, a lifetime role, however one sees it, the pressure on Meghan at every event is substantial and she is handling it.

The pressure on her (and Harry) the day of the wedding will be through the roof! In fact, I think it's fortuitous that the wedding isn't at one of the big London venues precisely because of that.

People made a big deal out of Americans watching the 2011 wedding and it turns out the number wasn't that large less than 23 million; more people watch the Oscars every year which IDK is a good or bad thing.

23 million was still slightly higher than for Charles and Diana and in the U.K. it was around 34 million. Again almost the same as Charles as Diana.

Plus don’t forget we have the internet now. The BBC website crashed during William and Catherine’s wedding.

I expect big numbers for Harry and Meghan especially in America.

IMO thatís pretty good considering how TV rating have been dropping across the board. And itís for British royals. My guess is thatís easily the highest rated non US related program from that time.

Eh- I havenít watched the oscars in years. I donít care to hear anyoneís political views- be it about current events or the president-in an entertainment program, whether I agree with said view or not. Itís too long. I donít watch enough of the movies anyway. And....Iíve started to wonder what makes the film industry so important that I should spend my time watching them congratulate themselves for a movie. Plus- the whole thing is pretty political- both for nominations and winners. I think Iíve gone off on a bit of a tangent. Lol

I think there will be a healthy US viewership and/or DVR rate. I'll either watch or DVR it--or both.

And that was almost 30yrs ago when people had to stay home and watch or not see it. In 2011 they could stay home DVR or watch online and the numbers were still lower than an award show. Not trying to imply anything just pointing out that this theory that America is obsessed with British Royalty doesn't hold up to tests.

And I never said people should watch the Oscars, just that more Americans watched the Oscars than either royal wedding... if anything that implies we like shinny things, pretty clothes, and parties.

Apparently more Americans watched Diana's funeral in comparison to the 2 weddings, then there is factoring in things like Olympics and Super Bowls; don't Google those numbers because that just boggles the mind. 48 million Americans watched Nancy and Tonya skate in 1994.

Whether Americans are interested in our Royal Family is a matter for them, but of PERFECT disinterest to us, [other than the press or the media who are interested in making money out of you].

An American woman—an American woman of color—is marrying the ever so popular, Prince Harry. The American viewership of this wedding will be significant.

I’m beyond proud and it’s what I hoped for too. I’m with Whoopi!

Still waiting to hear what free channels here will air the wedding. At this point I'm planning to watch it online.

I am sure ABC, CBS and NBC are all airing and over on cable CNN, FOX News, E! and BBC America will all be airing it. They all did for William and Kate and based on how these stations are reporting on the wedding, no doubt they will all be there. Other stations likely involved too and no doubt plenty of streaming options. I don't think you will be about to avoid it.

I don't know...not convinced ABC/CBS/NBC are going to pre-empt several hours on a Saturday morning. Cable yes..I'm talking about free TV though.

Why wouldn't they? For one it is early in the morning. The wedding coverage will be over by like 9am EST. They do this with other things like parades, special events and breaking news. As said NBC, ABC, and CBS all covered W&K. I don't see why they wouldn't cover H&M especially when we know these stations are already renting out space in Windsor.
