To all of the online fabric retailers who gave a discount to my readers this month I truly thank you! I hope that my readers took the time to visit your sites and use the discount. I think all of you are retailers with integrity, amazing customer service and a great eye for fabric. I hope that if you didn't use the discounts (Why???) that you will remember each and every one of them for future fabric purchases.
So thanks to Emmaonesock, Stylemaker Fabrics (please look out for the Fall Fabric Tour that's presently happening), Smugglers Daughter and LAFinch Fabrics. Thank you soooooo much!
There were two very generous indie pattern giveaways this month - Jenny at Cashmerette Patterns and Trudy & Jeremy at Hot Patterns! Thank you for offering pdf patterns for the giveaway. I hope that if you weren't a winner of the patterns that you will check out both online pattern retailers. If you haven't had the chance to use a pattern by either company yet, please give them a try! You will be very happy with your finished garments!
BTW, if you entered the giveaway for a pincushion you had a better chance of winning than if you entered the book or clapper giveaways. There were way more entries for the clapper than for anything else. So if you're interested in buying one if you didn't win one - check out GMarie's site here. She ships internationally!
So without further ado the winners are ~
Sandra Betzina's - All New Fabric Savvy Book
**Lamar Meniola from Texas**
Congratulations to the winners! For the winner of the Clapper please send an email to gmariesew at gmail dot com. For all other winners, please send me an email (my email address is in my bio) with "Winner - Sandra Betzina Book" or "Winner - Magnetic Pincushion" in the subject line. Also please include your home address. I will confirm receipt of the email and let you know when I'm mailing your prize.
Thank you to everyone who read all the posts, entered the giveaways, and/or used the discounts. I appreciate your continued support!
I have been sewing during September, so new garment posts will be up shortly on the blog. I've started sewing for fall and am pretty excited about the changing season, although summer is hanging around here in the tri-state area!
...and finally there has been so much happening in the world lately that I want to add my condolences and well wishes to every person, family member, friend and survivor of the shootings in Las Vegas.
I also hope that aid comes soon to all those in need in Puerto Rico. It's been a rough hurricane season and I'm truly sorry that 45 has left the American citizens in Puerto Rico hanging.
...as always more later!
