I am all excited about this (even though I am terribly terribly late with my giveaway..). I was a bit shy about doing this as I am new to blogging, but as I was surfing along, finding a those lovely blogs, and finding new friends, I thought I'd throw in my bit too, as, after all... the launch is not the end.. it's only the beginning !!
Here is a bit about the site in Sarah's own words (and I couldn't put it better):
"The website will have just about everything you can think of that you would want online as a sewer. There are forums, online advice from industry experts, conversion charts, colour wheels, free patterns and class listings.
There will be interviews with all your favourite designers, quilters, patterns makers and authors. There will be tutorials with me and with other sewers from here and overseas, podcasts and coverage from shows and articles about all maner of exciting things.
Best of all, there are great unique gadgets - Fabricmatcher, which is an online tool which lets you match patterns to fabrics and see what your project will look like without sewing a stitch, and Find Fabric, which is the niftiest thing that will find the fabric you are looking for without you having to search for it for hours on the internet. It's so clever it even searches shops in your vacinity first to save you on international postage. How cool is that?
Plus there will be an online buy and sell area called SEWiNg, which is where you can sell the stuff you sew to the people out there who don't sew - and some of the ones who do :)"
I am so excited about it and especially about the Fabricmatcher. how cool is that ?
Ok... The thing you are all waiting for is the giveaway :-)
Here it is:
It is a pillow panel of canvas with enough canvas to make a border and a backing to make a pillow (as I am so late didn't have time to make it !). Also thrown in is a nautical Fat Quarter of 100% cotton and good quilting quality. The panel was bought in Holland and so most of my USA and UK readers will not have seen it anywhere !
Just leave me a comment, any comment. It would be nice to hear a bit about you, which craft you are doing, and where you live. As I am just a beginning blogger, I am also curious about your opinions about my blog and what you like and don't like (don't be shy ! constructive criticism welcome!), but I'm not fussy.
Looking forward to meeting many more of you!
