It's celebration time for seven lucky Sew4Home fans. Our most recent Great Giveaways had a range of terrific prizes! We often use comments as the way to collect entries, and we always have a lot of fun reviewing all the responses. Our Sew4Home visitors are so clever and have such a wide variety of amazing sewing experiences: from folks who’ve just started out to those of you with decades of stitching stories to share. It’s a wonderful community and we love being part of bringing you all together. Even if your name is not one listed below, please know how much we appreciate you being a loyal fan and follower.
One Winner of a Pair of Fat Quarter Shop Jolly Bars
Jolly Bars are a new pre-cut exclusive to our friends at Fat Quarter Shop. When they debuted late last year, FQS celebrated with a new Shortcut Quilt that featured the 5” x 10” cuts. They also celebrated with us by offering a pair of Jolly Bars for one lucky S4H winner: Karen Rowell of Berne, IN. Karen enjoys having all the great Sew4Home project ideas come right to her computer every day. Then the problem is sorting out which one to do. Congratulations, Karen!
One Winner of a Aurifil 12-Spool Thread Box
We shared our resolutions and goals to kick-off 2016, then asked you to do the same by listing your own plans to regroup, revitalize, and reclaim your sewing ambitions. The comments were amazing… and inspiring. Our winner was Michele B of Cleveland, OH. We loved her description of her own love of sewing, “There’s just something about cutting into fabric or sitting down at my machine that is so engaging and satisfying. It’s hard to explain the feeling, but I think anyone who has been bitten by the sewing bug knows what I’m talking about.” You bet we do! Congratulations, Michele!
Three Winners of Cuddle Cakes from Fabric Depot and Shannon Fabrics
Our first series of 2016 was a week of superb softness at the end of January that debuted three new blanket projects and a helpful sewing-with-plush technique tutorial – all featuring Cuddle fleece. To spread the softness far and wide, we had three pretty Cuddle Cakes to give away. Our winners were: Renea Yarolim of Iowa who tells us she tries to sew every day… even if it’s just for 30 minutes after getting home from work. She’s excited to play with her new Cuddle squares; Noemy Rosario of Curitiba-Paraná, Brazil is starting her own craft business but is planning to use her Cuddle Cakes to do a little “selfish sewing” just for her; and Brenda Melahn of Alexandria, KY who was thrilled to win a type of fabric she’d never gotten a chance to use before. Congratulations one and all!
One winner of our Leap Year Gift Bundle
We celebrated 24 extra hours of creativity in 2016 with one of our most colorful giveaways of fabric and thread. Hearing about all your plans for Leap Day was super fun. The winner of this bundle of brightness was Ramona Hughes of Scherzo, TX whose Leap Day plans included organizing her sewing room, and “touching every piece of fabric I own and envisioning what I was going to make from it.” Now that is likely to take more than 24 hours! Congratulations, Ramona!
One winner of our Daylight Savings Fat Quarter Bundle
It’s hard to believe spring has sprung, but it certainly has and with it came Daylight Savings Time. We figured this was reason enough to celebrate with fabric! Fat Quarter Shop provided a gorgeous bundle of 15 fat quarters from the Marseille collection by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics. We passed along this scumptious Spring fabric bundle to winner Laurie F of Bloomington, MN. Laurie's been a S4H fan for nearly five years, and tells us she is always finding fun and useful projects as well as helpful tips for sewing and using her machine. Congratulations, Laurie!
