Day One is Giveaway Day:
Monday the 24th February: Giveaway Day. Host a giveaway on your blog or other social media platform to give something back to the sewing community.
I actually have two giveaways on offer, a sewing one and a knitting one. I had planned to buy something sewing-related, but since this year I'm really trying to cut down on consumption I hope you won't mind that it's actually out of my stash instead - I promise it's completely unused!
The By Hand London Victoria Blazer pattern. I really love this pattern. But as I've been musing over the Wardrobe Architect series I've realised it's a style/silhouette I really love on other people. So rather than hoard it, I've decided that it can contribute to some other sewist's general fabulousness. :)
A set of six Swarovski crystal stitch markers. I have a dear friend who makes beautiful crystal, pearl and beaded jewellery, and she's fashioned up these little lovelies for me, or rather, for you! I adore my set; bling really doesn't get more glorious than Swarovski! These comfortably fit on needles up to about 6.5mm or US 10 1/2.
If you're interested in either of these, leave a comment below specifying which. Both giveaways are open until Sunday 2nd March 2014. Good luck!
