In the year since I have started sewing and crafting, i have been really blown away by the generosity of the online sewing community. There is so much support available, and everyone is so quick to offer help or advice and to share their own experiences with people that they have never met. Bloggers are also eager to share the joy of sewing through giveaways and swaps. Special mention must go to the lovely Dibs, who so kindly sent me a pair of suede flowers after i admired them on her blog. Thanks Dibs! Because I am rubbish I have yet to do anything with them yet - but I have plans, promise!
Such a huge part of my learning this year has been through tutorials and sewalongs hosted by sewists who so generously offer up their time. For example, Tasia of Sewaholic Patterns provides excellent sewalongs which are so packed full of tips and information. I had no idea of the wealth of information available on sewing blogs, but I am so, so (sew!) grateful for it.
This year, I am keen to give back to the sewing community. So for Sew Grateful Week, I will be hosting my very first giveaway! This gorgeous print is a cotton lawn which was bought with a Pendrell in mind, however at the last minute I changed my mind. I could stash it, but in the interests of stash-busting (another one of my aims for the year!) I am going to pass it on to someone else.
Hopefully you can see the print here. There is 2 metres of this fabric, and it is quite wide - my tape measure says about 55" which sounds like a slightly odd measurement to me but there we go..! It should be more than enough for a top, or maybe even a skirt. To enter this giveaway all you need to do is be a follower of my blog, and leave a comment below saying what you are grateful for by MIDNIGHT (UK time) on SUNDAY 12TH FEBRUARY. I will pick the winner with the help of a random number generator next Monday. Good luck everyone!
