Give Away Day!!


It's Sew Mama Sew GiveAway Day!  
Time to get into a hopping frenzy and find new wonderful blogs and hopefully snap up a fabulous prize or two along the way. 

I've got an awesome prize on offer -  Jessica Wheelahan, an amazing Sydney quilter and fabulous fabric designer has very kindly provided 3 x half meter cuts of her amazing Text/Type fabric. This fabric is a must-have for all you text fans out there!! So far these wonderful printed fabrics are only available at Material Obsession or through Jess so this is a great chance to win some of these unique Aussie designed fabrics. 

 Jessica has also included a very cool pin cushion and some mysterious silvery grey thread wound on a piece of driftwood. 
To pad out the box I've added some vintage buttons, a big spool of Aurifil thread and some Australian town text fabric by Veritas designs. There's still some room in the box so I'll add some more fabric too before sending it.  Now that what I call a Super Sewing Goodies Box!!

I've thrown Mr Random Selector out the window and am using my Button Method of choosing a winner. 
It's easy - you just have to guess how many buttons are in the blue daisy tea cup. The closest number wins.
If more than one person picks the correct numbers I'll randomly select the winner using colourful buttons. 
  • Everyone can have one guess.
  • To make it extra fun my wonderful followers get three extra guesses! That includes new followers so sign up today!! You can put the extra guesses in one comment eg. 329, 235, 168
  • I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world.
  • The giveaway will close on May 17th around noon. Blue Mountains, Australia time.

Normally I like to reply to comments but I know Giveaway Day can be a busy time so I'll thank you now for visiting and wish you lots of luck but most of all have fun visiting lots of new blogs and friendly familiar blogs too.

PS. If you'd like to see the quilt I made using Jessica's Text/Type fabrics pop over Here to this post. 

This Giveaway is now closed - To all those who entered thanks so much for joining in the fun. 
The Lucky winner is the one and only Shay of Quilting in my Pyjamas
