Sew Mama Giveaway - Sewing + Craft Supplies

Today we are participating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  I am having 2 different giveaway's with 2 different posts (so look for the other one if you have not already entered it).  This post will be for Sewing + Craft Supplies.


We are giving away 2 pieces of fabric.  The one on the left is almost 3/4 of a yard and the one on the right is just over a yard.  Also we are throwing in 2 1,000 m rolls of Gutermann White Thread. The picture does not do the fabric justice, they are pretty my gray desk top seems to wash them out.

To enter is simple.  Leave a comment on this post telling me what type of quilt or other sewing project you like to do most and what your favorite thread is.  For a bonus entry you can Like us on Facebook or G+ or follow us via Google Friends connect, Networked Blogs, Email, or Reader.  If you already follow us one of these ways it counts (but it can't hurt to follow us more then one way).  Leave a separate comment for each of the 2 possible entries.

This closes December 7th.  We will draw a name and notify winner.  Please leave a way to get in touch with you, if you are a no reply blogger.  This is open to anywhere in the world. 

The winner has been picked.  Congrats to AnaCrafts.  She will be emailed shortly to get mailing instructions. Thank you to all that entered our Giveaway!!

I love sewing quilts more than anything else. I tend to use Gutterman thread but don't have that much experience of other types.

I like hand-sewing, both embroidery and making things like felt food, so my favorite thread is DMC cotton embroidery floss, lol.

Robyn said...

I like to sew useful items like bags. I guess my favorite thread is whatever I can get with a coupon!

Fiona said...

I like making pretty quick projects as I get very little sewing time. So things like make up bags, tote bags, fabric storage boxes - anything that can be cut and sewn in under 2 hours basically.

I use Guttermann thread and always buy the big 1000m spools so I don't have to worry about it running out in the middle of a project.

LesQuilts said...

Hi!
I'm into needle turn applique! It is my relaxer. I'm addicted to the Just Takes 2 quilt, I'm over 1/2way done!
I always use guerterman thread (I know, I spelled it wrong!). If I'm machine quilting, I use sulky rayon thread, I like the sheen on the quilt top.
Thanks for the giveaways!
Take care, Leslie

LynCC said...

Oh, boy - my quilting tastes are so eclectic, I have no favorite type to make. :) Although, I tend toward big quilts that are complicated rather than small projects. Threads - favorites for different purposes. Cottons for piecing, 50wt for paper foundation tasks and quilting, sometimes variegated or shinies for quilting, 100wt silk for applique stitching.

LynCC said...

And I follow you guys :)

Anita said...

How lovely! I really only use Gutermann thread too! =)

I like to sew quilts and handbags. =) Thank you for a chance to win.

moonlightsewing said...

I like small "instant gratification" projects, but I also enjoy appliqué. And there is something to be said for the satisfaction of finishing a quilt! I use gutermann, but a friend just gave me some aurifil, so I'll be trying that out, too! em_komiskey@yahoo.com

vwlady said...

I like doing miniature quilts to mat and frame. I also do large quilts. I use many different threads depending on the project. Gutermann, Aurifil, Mettler...it varies.

Your fabric is just lovely.

Hello, My favorite sewing project is always making something for someone else especially my family. In apparel sewing I use mostly Coats and Clark thread. I am just getting into quilting and I understand Gutermann thread is one of the leading threads to use for quilting. Thanks for the chance to win your lovely fabric and thread giveaway.

Judy said...

Beautiful fabric! Lately my projects of choice are pillows. I can change them out really fast. I use Gutermann fabric for all my needs except when I do embroidery on the machine and I use Isacord or Sulky. Thanks for the chance.

Toddler clothing. They are not too small to sew, yet, not too big to waste too much fabric if I do mess up. Therefore, they are the perfect projects to practice my sewing skills on.

Thank you for the generous giveaway.

I'd love to try your thread. Thanks for the giveaway.

pennydog said...

I tend to like paper piecing! Nice and accurate and no careful cutting suits me!

Threadwise I'm a new Aurifil convert but I do buy Guterman from the shop near me as I have to order Aurifil online and sometimes you need thread right away!

Amy @ Butterfly Angels Quilting said...

I love bed quilts in general. I really like pieced backgrounds, with big appliques. One of "signature" looks. I tend to use King Tut on the long arm, and Connecting Threads for piecing. I'd love to use some of the nicer threads, though. And I follow via email AND facebook. (squeegeatc@aol.com)

I like making kids clothes because I can make customise how I like, and it is not a question of what thread do I like but what does my machine like, she is a very temperamental old lady andis very fussy about thread. Her favourite is Guttermans, she sulks and causes all sorts of tension issues if I use anything else!
