*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*
So I’m gonna be teaching a class November 4th, here in Austin at the Common Thread with Colette’s Ginger Skirt pattern!

And for some strange reason I bought two copies of this pattern. Must have forgotten the first one I bought. Luckily for you that means a giveaway! You don’t have to live in Austin or go to my class to make your own Ginger Skirt. Win the pattern for free! I promise to send you the uncut copy. ;)

Sorry, this giveaway is open to US residents only.

To enter leave me a comment and tell me the best tip you’ve ever learned in a sewing class (on or offline, or just from a cool tutorial you’ve found). Oh, and make sure I have a way to find your email address. :)

I’ll pick a winner on Friday, October 25th @ noon CST.

Japanese Pattern Book Giveaway Winners

Hey folks, I realized two problems regarding the giveaway from last week.

#1 I kinda forgot to announce winners. Sorry! As you might have heard there was some craziness happening in Texas politics on Tuesday and uh, I got a little wrapped up in it. No worries, winners are picked!

#2 Having never done a giveaway while using Disqus as my commenting system I think I’ve discovered that Disqus doesn’t allow me to see your email address in your profile. Ugh, so sorry, winners, I hope you’re reading ‘this cause I can’t figure out a way to contact you now! sadface

Anywho here are the winners, congrats!

And the winner for the awesome swimwear fabric and Ohhh Lulu bodysuit pattern is… *drumroll* Mika! From Savory Stitches! Congrats Mika, I’ve already emailed you.
Thanks to everyone who entered! I liked reading your responses. Some of you have made swimsuits before, some not, some had successes and some… less so. I hope this giveaway has inspired you to give swim wear sewing a shot if you haven’t already. ;)
