I have a group that could be great if only i could get the people in it too actually particpate. I dont know what i am doing wrong. I made it very easy to sign up and theres lots of chances to participate so what else do i need to do. I only ask that everyone does one out of 10 possible projects ina two month period and vote for each monthly project. Most of these can be done in an hour or up to a weekend. SO what else do i need to do to get them to participate more and yes i have asked the group what else they would like to see and no one answered.
Any Ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I am really lost!!

It may pick up now that kids have gone back to school. Summer is a tough time to do those types of projects, especially when you have small kids running around the house. Maybe start posting some tutorials (if you already haven't) to give easy ideas. Since the holidays are coming up maybe have a contest of creative gift ideas and open it up to other types of projects besides sewing, just to get the ball rolling.

Okay, since you want to keep it to sewing, how about making a contest for Thanksgiving / Christmas types of gifts? Something that incorporates other crafts? Like making those sewn jar covers for things like home-made jams and such? Or maybe using those same covers for a jar of home-made bath salts? you could make it a creative combo contest that incorporates sewing as the focus? or maybe a 'most creative' contest for a certain type of project, ex. since it's going to get cooler soon, maybe one of those draft stoppers for at the base of the doors?
I would count on it getting busier very soon, as Halloween is just around the corner and lot's of mom's like to make their children's costumes. I know I do.
