I promised a Blogiversary Giveaway, and here it is!
This giveaway involves some personal sacrifice, but I think it will be appreciated. You might have noticed that I order 3 patterns per month from Style Arc. I do this because, after that first month when I ordered more, the shipping was *really* high. Chloe, of Style Arc, suggested that I tweak any future orders to stay at the $33 rate, which is usually 3 patterns. (Though it can be less if the pattern is very large.)
So, for my giveaway I am going to give away one of my three patterns for September. If you win this giveaway, you can select a pattern from the Style Arc website, with a value up to $15. Tell me the pattern number and size, and I will add it to my September order, in place of one of my three. I will then mail it to you.
Good, eh? In addition to this, I have a Style Arc pattern to give away. A friend ordered the Samantha Top in a size 8. According to their size chart, a size 8 is designed for a 34.3" bust. When her pattern arrived, she was surprised at how much negative ease this pattern features - the finished bust measurement is 29-3/4" – over 4" of negative ease. She kindly gave me the pattern to offer as a giveaway.
In addition to these, I am also giving away a $10 give certificate to Your Button Shop. I discovered this site because it is run by the owner of my favorite sewing forum, Stitcher's Guild. Julie has some lovely button and bead offerings.
So, to summarize, there are THREE items you can win:
- A Style Arc pattern valued up to (and including) $15.
- A Samantha Top pattern in a size 8 (29-3/4" finished bust).
- A $10 Gift Certificate to Your Button Shop.
Please leave a comment on this post indicating what you are interested in. If it's all three, that's fine.
Here's how it will work. In early September (wow, that is SOON), I will draw names for the three prizes. I will mail the Samantha top to that winner, and I will email the gift certificate to that winner. The lucky winner for the choosable pattern will let me know (within a few days of the win) their pattern choice and size. I will add it to my order. It takes a couple weeks to arrive. I will then mail it to the winner. So, feasibly, you will not receive your pattern until the end of September. If you need longer to decide, you can get into my October order, but you will then receive your pattern around the end of October. Capische?
Thanks SO much for all your supportive comments and well wishes on my blogiversary post. I am very grateful to all of you!
