May Giveaway Day!

05 13 2014 may giveaway day 2

Welcome readers new and old! I am keeping it super simple with Giveaway this year. I have some supplies that have been languishing in my stash, so I figured it is better to share and have them get used than let them go to waste. And why not double up and make TWO people happy. So here is what I am giving away with the how to follow.

It's a sad, sad thing when perfectly good fabric never gets used.

The first mini package has 2 yards of fabric in red and off white. Along with that, There are three empty chocolate tins in different sizes. I love tins like these for storing supplies. All of these were given to me and then never used.

Oh, the colors!
Oh, the colors!
I don't do crewel, so this has to go to someone who will love it.

The second mini package is a bundle of vintage crewel yarn. There are 33 skeins in a rainbow of colors. These are also accompanied by two empty stash storage containers. One is an embossed chocolate tin and the other is a glitter Lorac case with a velcro band closure (also never used by me).

You wanna win one of these? It’s easy! Just post a comment below answering this question: What craft would you like to see me do a tutorial for? It can be sewing, painting, jewelry, housewares, whatever. Once you answer that, also be sure mention if you want mini package #1 or #2 and some contact info. If you are hosting a Giveaway, feel free to post your link, as long as you also follow the rules above. A comment that is only a link will not be approved. I approve comments myself, so don’t be alarmed if yours doesn’t appear immediately.

A random number generator will be used to pick the two winners. I will ship internationally. Please check out all the other giveaways at Sew Mama Sew.

So there it is, sweet and short. Good luck to all and see you tomorrow when I share art from my camping weekend.


  1. I would love to see a tutorial on paper piecing, I just don’t quite understand how or why you do it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. The first would be great, I also store things in used chocolate tins (large quality street) English Chocolates… Yum

  3. I love any tutorials or patterns for sewing. I’m really just getting started and love any information that people have with tips or tricks to make it easier.

    I would LOVE #2. I have been dying to try crewel and no stores near me sell any supplies. This would be an amazing chance to get started!

  4. Would like to see hand quilting,fabric flowers,storage tips,craft place…Lovely giveaway,i would love number 2,house tin is so cute.Have a lovely week.

  5. I love #2. I am a beginner at sewing so I love easy things you can sew for around the house, like pillows and valences.

  6. I like tips and tutorials for hand stitching. I love discovering a new technique that makes my creations look more polished or let me work faster. I would be happy with either package but the 2nd one is my first choice.

  7. I would like the giveaway with the yarns as I have 3 little grand daughters I want to teach hand sewing (and hopefully embroidery) to and the yarns would be a great start. THe oldest already knows how to use the sewing machien as I taught her to make a lap quilt, but hand sewing..not so much. And a tutorial of something simple for them to make would be great! I at the moment can only come up with the cards where you just lace the yarn around the card…but I am practical and to me that is a waste of time! I want them to be able to make something..thereby catching the sewing bug!

  8. I’d like to see a tutorial about making jewelry that incorporates fabric or hand stitching. And I’d be especially delighted with package #1.

  9. I really like package 1, I guess I inherited the love for tins from my mom. And I always love to learn more sewing techniques. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Lets see, a starter paper piecing tutorial would be good. I’ve got the general idea but I would love to SEE it before I jump in.
    Oh, I don’t do crewel either, like it but know nothing about how to accomplish it, so put me down for package #1

    just in case: m3reyna at gmail dot com

  11. I’d love to win # 1. Great giveaway. Thanks so much for sharing. I love to watch quily tecniques

  12. My house could use some decor, so those would be tutorials I’d be interested in. I’d love either prize. Thanks!

  13. I’d be curious to see a tutorial on paper piecing. One day I hope to be brave enough to try it, it looks rather complicated!

    I’d love to be in the draw for #1 please. 🙂

  15. Basic sewing tutorials. People think because I quilt that I can sew and I hate to dissappoint. Would prefer grouping #2. Thanks

  16. I always love tutorials that show how to sew small items that are suitable for gift giving. I would love giveaway #1 – love red!

  17. I love tutorials and I love sewing therefore I’d love to see sewing tutorials:) I would love to win package #2 (but will not complain if it would be 1#) 🙂 Thanks so much for this great giveaway!

  18. I would like tutorials about resin, like making a resin necklace or pouring resin stuff over pictures to make a necklace. I don’t know anything about that.

  19. I think it would be fun to see painting tutorials. My mother painted, and I have her old supplies and brushes, etc. As for which package, I’d take door number 2. I love needlepoint and other embroidery and would have a lot of fun.

  20. Needlework, especially embroidery (including crewel; I got one book out of the library once and didn’t learn very much at all).

    I would go for #1.

  21. I’d like to see a tutorial on stuffing the small and skinny parts of stuffies. And I would love the second bundle. Luscious colours!

  23. I would like a tutorial on sewing for the house. I am choosing #1. Thank you for the chance!

  24. Pack one looks great. How about a decorating tutorial. Using some of the things you make and how to pull it together to look like its meant to be

  25. How about crewel stitching? He he. I’m loving hand stitching at the moment (all sorts of stuff, from soft sculptures to embroidery and paper piecing), so some tutorials on how to do that properly would be cool. Pack one would be lovely; I absolutely adore that chocolate tin!

  26. I store most of my sewing supplies in boxes and tins, so these beautiful tins would come handy. If I can pick, I’d take number 1, but I’d be happy with number 2 as well. Thanks for the chance!
