Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

First of all, welcome! How fun is this? I've always wanted to be a part of the fun. And now, here we are.

This past Christmas, I got to spend a lot of time with my cousin and my auntie. We spent a lot of time together, while my uncle was in the hospital. And I learned how to crochet. Life changing! And so much fun!



For my giveaway, I want to give some the chance to have fun too! To learn a new craft. I'm giving away this little set, and some additional yarn! 5 skeins of "I Love This Yarn."

You have until May 29th, at midnight PST. Open to the USA only. Just leave me a link to your favorite online craft shop. For any type of craft. I've got 4 kids, so we're always working on something! Good luck! You should also visit my cousin and my auntie today. I'm just saying... ~Maggie

I'd gift the beginner stuff to a girlfriend of mine but the additional skeins I'm keeping...I have a granddaughter that I can make things for now!

Craftinomicon said...

MaryAnne said...

What a wonderful giveaway!

I also love the custom fabrics on spoonflower.com, although so far I only admire it - haven't bought any yet.

Kristy said...

I so want to learn the art of crochet! Thanks for the giveaway!:)

ellen said...

Online, hmmm. I always just start with amazon and go from there. I have looked at some things on connectingthreads. I like it too.

Thanks for the giveaway! I've always wanted to learn to crochet.

Missy said...

I would love to learn to crochet! My grandma makes lovely projects and I've never learned. :-)

MissMary said...

My favorite craft shop isn't a shop--it's marthastewart.com Ok, ok, enough groaning... She's a perfectionist, but she has some inspiring ideas! :-)

Love to Stitch said...

I don't know how to crochet but have always wanted to learn!

Jennifer said...

I've wanted to learn how to crochet for a long time, so this would be fun to win. My favorite online craft store is Hawthorne Threads; I do a lot of sewing!

Sharon said...

Oh my gosh! I totally want to learn how to crochet. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Sunni @Love Affair with my Brother said...

I just started making bows for my 2 girls. (I know. Along with everyone and their dog!) But, it actually has a lot of similarities to sewing. Precision, measuring, manipulating... it's pretty serene really. So I like to go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/HairbowSuppliesEtc. She has great prices and fast shipping. I hope you take a go at it!!

And, I actually know how to chain and single crochet. My friend's mom showed me those in high school, and I have never forgotten. I made an entire (really heavy) blanket in just single crochet. So I would love to learn more stitches and how to actually READ crochet. (It is latin to me right now!!)

Sincerely, Sara said...

www.dana-made-it.com is a great site for lots of crafty things!

Thanks for the chance to win! I've really been wanting to learn to crochet!!!

Okay, so this is not an online craft shop, but an online craft blog for a local (Denver) indie craft boutique. I love this place and I follow their blog. Enjoy: http://www.fancytiger.blogspot.com/

bulabean said...

well, I'm always buying stuff at fabric.com..

Leigh said...

I do most of my fabric shopping at fabric.com, and they've really expanded their yarn selection lately too (or so my knitty friends tell me- maybe if I learn to crochet I'll have reason to check it out!)

Willa said...

I am trying to relearn.

For watercolor supplies (sometimes a craft!) try my site
zoltanszabo.com!

Ly said...

I love quilting and fabrics. I am a fan of the fat quarter shop - www.fatquatershop.com and pink chalk fabrics!

Jodie said...

My fabric online shop is fatquartershop.com.... They have awesome fabric.

Cricket said...

I love Fairytale Frocks and Lollipops.com. They have sooo many patterns.

I really do want to learn to crochet - I can knit, but somehow the crochet thing eludes me. Maybe if I had a beginners book I could make it work. I'd love to be able to crochet my own trim for my sewing projects.

Crystal Hendrix said...

Thanks so much! I love to crochet!!

CMEH said...

My fave shop are the discount shops... stitch steals, craft steals, peachy cheap..... thanks for the great giveaway!

Liz Mouse said...

I would love this.

goldfishpollywog said...

It took me years to figure out crochet, nothing really made sense. Finally it dawned on me that I'm not terribly linear, and the patterns I was using were. I started crochetting in amigurumi, or in a spiral and it is so much more fun.

http://freeamigurumipatterns.blogspot.com/
and
http://nerdigurumi.com/category/amigurumi-tutorials-technique
Have free patterns and tutorials that have really helped.

http://www.craftster.org/
is great if you need help or inspiration. Great folks there.

I don't need the prize, but wanted to share my favorites anyway.
