I had an absolute blast these past few days attending the 2012 Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City but now I'm home again and it's time to get back to business.
As promised I have a giveaway today to celebrate my 100th post on this blog, and it's an awesome giveaway if I can say so myself. I have a surprise for everyone though! The giveaway isn't just to celebrate my 100th post, it's also to celebrate the fact that beginning in November I'm going to be teaching modern quilting and sewing at The Makery in Anaheim, CA. Yay!
The Makery is a combination craft studio/ co-working space/ creative classroom/ supply shop located in Anaheim California that offers quality instruction in a variety of mediums to crafters of all levels. In the words of The Makery "We believe in community. We believe in creative expression. We believe in Accessibility."
Starting in November I'm going to be teaching beginning classes in applique and piecing, as well as pouch making and papercrafting. I'm super excited for this opportunity to work with tha amazing owners and all the other great instructors at The Makery and to be able to share my love of quilting with others.
For the full schedule of classes offered at The Makery, please go here.
Now onto the giveaway!
I had the idea for this giveaway a few months ago and when I realized that the giveaway would end up being right around the same time as Sewing Summit I knew that I would have add some Sewing Summit swag to the pile of loot.
So here it is! The giveaway pile o' loot includes: 5 coordinating fat quarters of Reflections by Gudrun Erla for Red Rooster fabrics, one Kate Spain fat quarter with a tag signed by the designer, one seam ripper from Babylock, one measuring tape from Craftsy, a set of "handmade with love" tags, one "Sew Blog Love" sticker, one 4" square template from Tabslot, one set of buttons by Basic Grey, and since I wanted everyone to benefit from all the swaps going on at Sewing Summit I included one I-Spy charm set (with 112 charms!) and one handmade zipper pouch.
And there's more! I had so much stuff coming back from the Sewing Summit that I couldn't get it all in my suitcase, so I had to ship some stuff home in the mail, including some magazines and books that I'm also planning on including in the giveaway bundle!
So here are the details for the giveaway:
For one entry, tell me what kind of small project you would want to complete in a beginning quilting class. A mugrug? Some coasters? Something else? And what would be a good design? Basic squares? Half square triangles? log cabin? It would have to be something that could be completed in 3 hours by beginner sewists.
For a second entry, follow my blog (or already be a follower) and tell me so.
For a third entry, "like" Sewing By Stephanie on Facebook and tell me so.
For a fourth entry "like" The Makery on Facebook and tell me so.
The giveaway closes at 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, October 21st, with the winner announced Monday morning.
Happy Commenting + Good Luck!!!!!
