Hello, Amazing Sew For Victory Participants!
There’s really not a whole lot I can say except you all seriously knocked my socks off this year with your sewing. I’m not easily impressed, but you all well and fully impressed me! Thank you so much for joining my sew-along, sharing your progress, and challenging yourselves to make something awesome. You should be so proud! I know I am.
The final Flickr Group count for this year (as of this morning) is 404 members and 1,082 photos. That’s 232 new members and 592 new photos since last year! Amazing. Did I say you all were amazing yet? Because you are.
So as a reward for all your hard work, let the giveaways begin!
Like last year, these giveaways are for Sew For Victory participants only, but I’m trying something slightly different this year with how the prizes are drawn. This is a Chinese Auction style drawing, which means you can put your name in the hat for one specific prize that you hope to win (instead of being picked for a random prize like last year). One finished project equals one chance to win one prize (only one entry per person, even if you were extra amazing and finished more than one thing.) Make sense?
Okay so the prizes are:
Prize One: A $25.00 USD gift certificate to Hawthorne Threads.
Prize Two: Everything you need to make a cute vintage inspired summer bag! One yard of yellow polka dot cotton, one yard of cotton ticking, two bamboo bag handles, one spool of coordinating thread from my stash, and the bag pattern.
Prize Three: Summer Sewing Bundle! Three yards of light blue 100% Rayon floral fabric, some vintage notions, and two of Gertie’s new patterns (size pack A5).
Prize Four: A $25.00 USD store credit to Vintage4me2 patterns on eBay.
1.) You must have finished a Sew For Victory project to enter this giveaway (I will be checking the Flickr Group so make sure your photos are uploaded!)
2.) Please leave one comment with your first name, your Flickr user name, and which prize you hope to win.
3.) You must leave your comment before Sunday, May 18th at 10:00pm EST
(giveaway open to Sew For Victory members worldwide, though shipping charges may be different for gift card winners outside of the US.)
I’ll be back on Monday May 19th to announce the four winners with the final Sew For Victory 2.0 slideshow video! You can watch last year’s video again to tide you over in the mean time 😉
