This giveaway is now closed.
Sad to say that the holidays are over and, like many, I’m back at work tomorrow. What better way to cheer ourselves up than with a giveaway!
I was doing some Christmas shopping last month when I came across the January edition of Sew magazine.
It’s a quite a mixture this month and includes interviews with Zandra Rhodes and Cath Kidston, inspired pattern choices from Caryn Franklin, and lots of makes, my personal favourite is the woodland cushions.
And not forgetting the Simplicity pattern that came with the magazine for a kimono style jacket and a top or tunic with pleats.
I have to admit this is the first time I’ve bought a sewing magazine in this country for a long time. Sew is a pleasant read and brim full of ideas and inspiration. If you are looking for easy craft and clothing makes, this is for you. One of the most useful things I thought in the magazine was the directory in the back. It was a really good list of sewing supplies websites; there were quite a few in there that I’d never come across before.
I bought two and thought I’d give one away as a thank you to all my readers. The giveaway is open worldwide and closes on Sunday 11th January.
One of the things that somehow annoys me more than I care to admit is when my bobbin runs out of thread, especially when I’ve only got another couple of centimetres to go on the seam. Perhaps consigning threadless bobbins to room 101 is a little extreme. Possibly more of a sewing nemesis for me are sewing books. Perhaps I pick my projects badly, but I have come across real problems with all the patterns that I have tried to use from sewing books. Now bad instructions and patterns with errors in them should definitely be in room 101. Is there something that really annoys you?
Share below what exasperates you when you are sewing and I’ll pick a winner randomly. Happy New Year everyone!
