Sew, Mama, Sew's Annual May Giveaway Day!


 Hi everybody, thanks for stopping by! Feel free to pull up a chair, put up your feet, and stay awhile! I bet you want to know what I'm giving away, right? Well, here it is!


I am giving away one Amy Butler Daisy Chain fat quarter (Sweet Jasmine in grey), 25 6x6" squares from the same collection in 5 different prints, and 8 4x4" squares from the same collection in 4 different prints.

Here's what you have to do, there is a chance for two entries:

1.Leave a comment on this post. It can be anything, but preferably
more than just "pick me!"
2. If you are a follower of this blog, or if you become one, please leave 
a second comment and you will be entered a second time.

I will ship internationally, so this giveaway is open to anyone! The winner will be chosen at random on May 20th. However, since that is the day I am flying to Minneapolis for International Quilt Market, please be patient and I will announce the winner as quickly as I can. Also, May 24th is a holiday here in Canada (Victoria Day - and also the day I fly back into Canada) so I will mail out the winnings on the 25th when the post office re-opens.

There are many more giveaways to be found over at Sew, Mama, Sew: Handcrafted Item(s) + Supplies/Materials, Sewing + Knitting Supplies/Materials, and Handcrafted Item(s), so head on over there (after you enter here of course!) and start entering!

Thanks for stopping by everyone, and please keep in mind that comments are moderated - I will publish them as soon as I see them, but duplicate comments will be deleted. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day; I need to get back to writing that paper I have due before I leave!

*The giveaway is now closed*

  128. Hmm, anything, anything... well, I was asked for sewing tips earlier, so I'll pass one along to you too - when you are seam ripping, after you've cut all the threads, you can make things easier on yourself by picking up all the little threads with a lint roller instead of pulling them all by hand.

    ReplyDelete
  129. you have such great tutorials! i would love to be part of the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  153. If you're quilting for Market, that probably means you're heading to Minneapolis! Some good restaurants near the Convention Center (where market is) includes The King & I Thai for some good Thai food, and if you're looking for a nice rooftop patio to grab a pint, head up the street to Brit's pub. I'd be happy to provide more info on Minneapolis if you drop me an email!
