Hi, guys! Happy Sew Grateful Week! I’m so happy that Debi dreamed up this little holiday as a chance to express our gratitude to the online sewing community. I’m blown away by the generosity, encouragement, and creativity you guys pour out constantly! I’m feeling especially lucky this week, which says a lot, since I always feel lucky to be a part of this group. First, I received a package in the mail this week– the vintage knitting booklet that I won in Kerry’s giveaway at Kestrel Finds and Makes!
The booklet is filled with amazing Aran designs– I particularly love the cardigan on the left in the photo above. Gorgeous!
Then, I was so pleased to wake up Saturday morning and find that I’d won Nettie’s giveaway on Sown Brooklyn for a Pattern Runway pattern! I’ve been in love with this since the pattern was announced right before Christmas, but trying to be strong and stick to my budget:
It’s the One Shouldered Bow Party Dress— isn’t it perfect? I’m really excited to make it in a sophisticated grey or a midnight blue… perfect for cocktail parties or winter weddings! A million thanks to Kerry and Nettie!! If you’re not familiar with their blogs, you should check them out! They’re both unique and creative makers with entertaining voices and killer style!
So, I’d like to pass along the love and host a little giveaway here on the blog! I picked out a few lovelies that I hope you guys will enjoy! First up, this fabric:
This is 2.5 yards of rayon in a vibrant coral hue– it’s from Paron Fabrics in NYC and it’s a remnant from Christian Dior, if that piques anybody’s interest (60″ selvedge). It’s absolutely gorgeous, in my opinion, and I’m hoping that someone out there makes something really special with it!
I didn’t want to leave out my knitting friends, so I’m also giving away this yarn:
This is two skeins of Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino, a soft and strong fingering-weight yarn. I’m sure this will knit up beautifully!
Feel free to enter for a chance to win the yarn and/or the fabric by leaving a comment here. International shipping is fine, and you can enter until Friday, February 10th at 11:59PM EST. Yay!
Happy Sew Grateful Week, everybody! I really do want you to know how much I appreciate each and every one of you– I’m so glad to be part of your lives, even if it’s just in a small way and not in real life. 🙂
