Week 2 winner…

These #savoreachstitch entries have been so enjoyable for me to see show up on Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr. You guys are amazing, and your enthusiasm is truly inspiring. One of the reasons Lucky Spool, Pink Chalk and I wanted to structure this giveaway this way, was because we really wanted to highlight all the great stuff our sewing communities are made of.


For those reasons, I especially loved this entry from Carmen who showed us her sewing party. Good friends sewing together, it doesn’t get much better than that!

She’s our winner from last week’s entries. Congrats, Carmen!


We’ve still got 2 more weeks to enter. Log your entries here, and you can read the details here.


Keep the good stuff coming!

Week 1 winner…

Oh man, the entries this week in our #savoreachstitch competition were so good, and it was really tough choosing just one winner! But I just loved the spirit of Teresa’s entry on instagram.



Especially in the bottom comment where she talks about stepping outside her comfort zone and finding sweet satisfaction in her sewing. Congrats Teresa on your win this week, and for also sewing up an awesome Scout tee! We’ll be emailing you shortly about your winnings.

Thanks so much to everyone who entered last week! We’ve still got 3 more weeks to win weekly stuff and then the big prize at the very end. Register daily here, and continue to post your pictures.

By the way, here was mine from yesterday.

It was way too easy to savor some stitches after being trapped on my computer all week. It felt really good.

New year, new week, new book, new giveaway!

I’ve already mentioned that I’ve been working on a book. In the coming weeks and months, I’ll be sharing more about it and the process, but today I am kicking off a special giveaway related to the book, my Botanics fabric line, and my upcoming MQG teaching gig at SewDown, Nashville.


Curious? Well, a big part of why I wrote this book (and why I do what I do…) is because I think quilting/sewing/making is so special. It brings a lot of joy to my life, and I love that we each share that passion and have created such a creative and supportive community because of it. Lucky Spool Media and Pink Chalk Fabrics feel that same way, which is why we wanted to celebrate our common passion with this #savoreachstitch photo competition/giveaway!


Lucky Spool Media and Pink Chalk Fabrics have been amazingly generous to sponsor one grand prize, which is a Standard Package Single Room for SewDown: Nashville, where I will be teaching (I’m really looking forward to that!). Tickets for this event sold out within 2 hours, so this is an incredible 2nd chance for one randomly selected lucky winner to get a spot.


But wait, there’s more…

We’ll be awarding four weekly giveaway packages that each include a copy of my forthcoming book, Savor Each Stitch (upon release this summer), a Botanics charm pack (thanks to Pink Chalk!), and one of my sewing patterns of your choice!


To be eligible for both the grand prize and one of the four weekly prize packages, simply follow the Rafflecopter rules on the SewDown page on my website, by posting a photo with the #savoreachstitch up to once a day from now until the 31st. You’ll have to register each time you post a pic–we only require registration to prevent spammers and ensure everyone submits just once a day. We won’t use, sell, or distribute contact details for any other purpose. This is a wholesome, good will celebration photo competition/ giveaway! You can also enter on the Pink Chalk Fabrics blog or on the Lucky Spool Facebook page.


After you register, post a photo on Instagram, Flickr, or Facebook using #savoreachstitch and show us what savoring each stitch means to you. We’re leaving that part pretty open ended so you can let your creative juices flow in how you depict that, but I’ll be selecting the four weekly winners based on the images from the week that capture that sentiment the best.


Enter by Friday at 6pm EST on Jan 10, 17, 24, and 31 to be entered to win one of those four weekly prize packages as well as being automatically entered to win the one randomly selected Grand Prize spot at the SewDown in Nashville (April 12-14, 2014). Please note, that travel to, from, and at the SewDown event is up to the winner to pay for and arrange.


So– come on! Enter today! I want to see you savoring those stitches!
