Sew Grateful Week: My Giveaway

YAY! Super excited that Sew Grateful Week has arrived.  Today is the Giveaway Day…so post your giveaways today or anytime this week and be sure to stop by and put a link to your blog post!


I'm very happy to giveaway two things that are near and dear to me!  First, I'm giving away 2 metres of your choice of Weaving Destination cotton fabric.


If you've been following my blog for awhile, you'll know that Weaving Destination is an amazing initiative that I am very lucky to be involved in that provides sustainable livelihoods for a collective of women weavers in Assam, India.  Read more about it here.

Secondly, a lucky winner will receive their choice of a 1940 McCall pattern.  As you are probably aware, I am endeavouring to collect and make all the McCall patterns from 1940.  Now, it just so happens that I've also been collecting some of the patterns specifically for giveaways!  One lucky reader will get their choice of McCall 3659 (fabulous cape pattern) in size small (B32-34) or McCall 3730, a dinner gown in size B36:



To Enter:
Just leave a comment and let me know 1) what colour fabric you want and 2) which pattern you would like.  I will ship anywhere in the world.  Leave a comment by Friday midnight GMT time and I will randomly pick a winner!  Good luck and have a happy start to Sew Grateful Week!
