SEWN Giveaway

My good friend Sarah is the creative director for the new SEWN online quilting and sewing community for all lovers of fabric crafts. There will be Tips and Innovative Tools to help with your projects, an Advice Center for all your sewing questions, online forums and chats, and information on your local shops, sewing groups, quilt groups and classes.

SEWN will feature designers and shops from Australia and New Zealand, as well as the latest from the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan.

There will be articles, interviews and tutorials from industry experts, competitions and free patterns! We’ll even be reporting via podcast from craft shows around Australia and the USA.

I know I am very late in posting my give away but life has gotten in the way and I always say it is better late than never. My drawing will close at midnight and I will announce the winner early Tuesday morning. The official opening of SEWN will be launched on Tuesday. I will be giving away a small bundle of our 49 colors of our own 'Earthworks' hand dyed wool line. Take a guess how many buttons are in the jar above, leave your answer in the comments section and lets see who WINS!!! Happy Guessing Sue
