Sewn Blog Launch Party Giveaway

UPDATE June 8 at 4:13 a.m.: entry to the drawing is now closed. Thank you to everyone who's commented.

A new blog for sewers has evolved called Sewn. Actually, it’s still evolving and makes its official inaugural debut June 8, but you can register right now to win cool stuff or join the Blog Launch Giveaway like I’ve done.

SEWN

Sewn’s creators promise lots of excitement: forums, online advice from industry experts, conversion charts, color wheels, free patterns, class listings, interviews, tutorials, podcasts, an online Fabricmatcher tool, and more. I’m one of the registered blogs hosting a giveaway to honor the new blog’s launch.


© June Scroggin, All Rights Reserved


I’m offering a quilt kit from Timeless Treasures entitled “Solar Flare”. Included are the instructions and Tonga Batiks fabrics to make a 70-inch square, as well as a wonderful drawstring bag that holds everything.



Leave a comment on my blog between now and midnight of June 7 (PST)—your name will be entered into the drawing each time you comment (hopefully saying something nice to make my day lovely).

On June 8, magic shall be performed and the winning name drawn, henceforth to be announced that same day.


Uh … one more thing … if, perhaps, your name is “Anonymous”, it just won’t do at all. As the Caterpillar asked Alice in Lewis Carroll’s story, “Who... are... you?”

Oh my the colours on that bag are just beautiful - I've not done a quilt before though I would love to try... perhaps a kit would be a good way to start?

Niki RuralWritings said...

I haven't tried anything with batiks yet, but I love the way they look! Sounds like a great website, I'll go moseying around.
blessings,
Niki

Thimbleanna said...

Hmm...I vaguely remember hearing something about Sewn somewhere. I'll have to check it out. Your bag kit is really pretty!

That is a very interesting quilt design - especially using the batik prints. I'm always drawn to batiks (memories of my youth!). Please count me in for the give away.

Hi June!

This sounds like the perfect website for you! Lots of fun for sewers. That bag is so beautiful! Nice give away!

I've been experiencing some Blogspot problems,as some others are too, with blog pages not loading properly. There must be some glitches somewhere in the system. Thankfully your site opened without trouble!
Hugs, Pat

Diane said...

what amazing colours. I admire those who quilt -- it's so detailed and time consuming. You made a very pretty choice for your giveaway.

(Please do not include my name in your draw my dear -- I know I won't be able to put it together should I have won). Good luck to everyone for the draw!
