2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

January 9, 2017

SEWING BLOG CONTESTS...

...there is nothing like throwing your hat in the ring.  Who knows you just might win!, like I've done twice recently. 

I entered Emerald Sewcial Club's giveaway last month, and received this in the  Happy Mail today.    "Sew Many Dresses Sew Little Time by Tanya Whelan (complete with pattterns), Sew News' Secrets for Success Sewing dvd, and 3 yards of  marvelous silky print that I can't wait to use as a coat lining.  If you haven't visited Emerald's blog yet, please pay her a visit and learn all about her Annual Sewing Retreat that will be held in Texas in March.  Thank you Emerald!

In addition, I also entered Kyle's giveaway at Vacuuming the Lawn and received one of her 2017 Bag calendars as a prize.  Pop on over to visit Kyle - She makes THE most professional bags of all types in addition to wonderfully tailored clothing.  As a matter of fact she's stirring up a lot of  "jean" inspiration that might just coax me into trying a pair myself.


What can I say?, I love winning!  But I realize that I need to spread the sewing love as well.  It's high time for another Faye's Sewing Adventure Giveaways as well.  Be on the lookout for one soon...

  1. Congratulations on your wins! The fabric will make great lining! It might also work as a 90s style top with a tie at the neckline.
