Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

 *This giveaway is now closed, and the winners have been emailed. Congrats, Vicki and Anne!*

For Sew Mama Sew giveaway day, I have two giveaways to offer! I'm sharing yardage, scrap packs, and some swag from the Mid-Atlantic Mod retreat last month. :)


First up: this pack contains a purple fabric scrap pack (sharing the love of my favorite color), a little less than a half yard of the diamond print, two fat quarters (swirly purple Cocoon print and the pink print), a large scrap of Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler, and handmade-by-me key fob.

The second pack contains a yellow scrap pack, a True Luck mini charm pack, a charm pack of Basic Brights and Pastels from Windham, two rolls of washi tape from Cloud 9 Fabrics (love!!!), and a handmade-by-me keychain.
This giveaway is open to everyone in the whole wide world. On Sunday, May 10th at 9 pm EST, I will choose two winners using the Random Number Generator.

To enter:
1. Leave a comment about what you think you'd be doing if you weren't crafting in your free time. I definitely have joined the Sweet Adelines, which is an international woman's barbershop singing group (bet you didn't know I sang barbershop - bass voice part - for three years in high school! Any fellow barbershop singers out there?). I just can't make the quilt guild AND singing group commitment! I'd be reading a LOT more, too. Don't get me wrong though - I chose sewing for a reason. Because I freaking love it. :)
2. Leave a second comment if you are a follower of mine - you'll get a second chance (just let me know: Bloglovin, Feedly, Instagram, FB, etc.)

Thanks and have fun hopping!
P.S. I usually respond to all the comments that leave email addresses but I will be unable to respond to each person during the giveaway. Thanks for understanding!

  1. If I weren't quilting, I would probably be cooking a lot more. And maybe also volunteering somewhere. But I can now give back by making warm quilts for folks in nursing homes, that are veterans, and for kids in hospitals. Doing something I love and making a difference? Nothing better in life.

  17. I definitely wouldn't be singing, that's for sure, because I doubt anyone would want to hear that, lol! But in all honesty, I couldn't imagine my life without crafting. I also like photography, though and plants...so I suppose there would be something or other ;) Many thanks for the chance to win! Both bundles are fab!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Would probably read even more than I do and have the grandkids over.

  28. I would be reading more - fun reading. In nursing school they don't give us much time for anything, including sewing - but that is what I prefer to spend my few minutes on. You have great bundles up there. I just got through talking with my quilt guild about how hard it is to find good purples. I just finished a purple and blue quilt and probably have the largest selection due to that. We all seem to be lacking in that great color.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would be doing more reading!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Um, I would probably be annoying my husband...

    ReplyDelete
  31. If I weren't crafting, I'd be reading. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd be losing my mind without my creative outlet, and refuge from less than glamorous moming activities.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's easy-I would be reading. If I have a good book, I don't even think about seeing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would be learning to play the viper!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would be doing more schoolwork ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Id probably have a clean house if I wasn't crafting!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sewing is starting to take up more and more of my time but so far I'm loving it. If I had more time I'd probably be reading more (currently just on my commute to and from work) and spend even more time in the kitchen.

    ReplyDelete
  40. If I weren't sewing I'd be reading miree, even though I still read a lot! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. If I wasn't quilting. I guess I would be cleaning the house

  59. I'm drooling over the purple bundle you put together, so very pretty. If i weren't crafting I would be cooking, taking random road trips, reading or gardening in the summer. Wait a minute... I do all that anyway! You've got to keep your life fun.

    I used to date someone that sang in a barbershop quartet so I know about the Sweet Adelines and always wished I could sing. My voice would drive small animals to hide if I sang. I do have a question. Why don't people who can sing do so in random places like the grocery store? I always hear people who can't sing singing in public but rarely do I hear someone who can sing. it always makes me smile when I hear them. Just curious.

    ReplyDelete
  79. The vast majority of my sewing (time wise) is doing EPP on the lounge of an evening, usually with the television. Before I took up sewing, I was reading at that time instead......and at the rate I read, I can assure that this sewing habit is waaaay cheaper! Love that purple mix of yours, it's my favourite colour.
