Giveaway Day! - CLOSED


http://www.sewmamasew.com/store/media/blog/giveaway_button_2010.jpg 
Sew, Mama, Sew is hosting another giveaway day!  Hello and welcome to our blog! 

Remember (or not if you're new here :)) this skirt I made?  Well I have more of the fabric but don't think I'll be making anything else with it so I'd love to pass it on to someone who will!  There's about 3/4 of a yard of the one and roughly a fat quarter of the other.  They are both from Joel Dewberry's Deer Valley collection.

For a chance to win have a look around and let us know what type of post interests you most.

Become a follower, leave a second comment letting us know, and you'll get a second entry!

We'll randomly pick a winner the evening of May 20th.

Also, stay tuned for "Mending Week" coming soon!  We'd love to have you join us in trying to make a "less fun" sewing task "more fun" (and it'll help us work through our piles before they get too big!)
