I entered a contest on Violette Field Threads' Blog at the end of January. On February 4th, I received the announcement that I had won one of the Sewists Grand Prizes worth over $400 to various places.
Oh be still my heart! Do you know what those words mean to a retired person who loves to sew for her granddaughter??
The Violette Field Threads Blog gave me her whole collection! Wow! I am still amazed at just that one prize! Go check out her patterns if you never have! They are all so cute and so unique!
Now I will show you the other stuff I won:
$100 to Fabric.com!! It took me a while to decide on just what to order. I would put things in my cart, and change my mind over and over! I had $100 to spend, and I used $99.75! Can't get much closer than that!
Lots of fabric, and a few other things I needed to sew with! Oh gosh, my tongue was hanging out of my mouth opening this box!
Another great prize came from Little Lizard King, and I was able to choose 2 patterns of my choice. Please go and visit her page to see all of her neat stuff!
Next is what I ordered from Girl Charlee Fabrics with my $25 gift certificate. I was so glad to be introduced to this shop. Knits and more knits at very reasonable prices!
I saw the multi-color leopard print, and I knew my Shelby would love it! Plus the ruffled knit, and a solid black knit for fall!
I also won $25 to Pink Chalk Fabrics. I love to look at all of their pretty selections, and it took me a while to decide what to order here also. This beautiful gray fabric is Moda Big Dots Steel and Moda Bella Solids Steel. I just love how the fabric feels.
I won another $25 gift certificate to Skye Reve Fabrics. I've admired their store for a long time, and I've also ordered from them before. They have great fabric and great service. I chose this wonderful navy/blue chevron with the dots to match. I think this will be a cute fall outfit for my Shelby!
Last, but not least, is what I got from Shabby Fabrics with another $25 gift certificate! Oh yes, I was one happy
I feel so blessed! I don't enter every giveaway that I see. I only enter those that I know I would be able to use the prizes, and if you know me at all, you know I will use every single prize I have posted here!
Thank YOU to all of the sponsors! Without such generous sponsors, we wouldn't be able to enter any of these great giveaways.
I want to also state that I was able to get these great selections because I paid some of the shipping on a few of these - but, believe me! It was worth it! There will be more post coming as I'm able to sew with these wonderful fabrics!
