Summer of Sewing Giveaway | Bloomerie Fabrics

We’re announcing the winner of our Summer of Sewing Fresh Family Traditions prize. I could drag on and tell you to wait through the commercial break, but we’re not like that around here. Congratulations, Brittany of Ingenue Diaries!

We asked what your favorite sewing thing was and Brittany told us, “I love my yardage of Moda’s Passport – London print so much. During my junior year, I studied abroad in London and it’s my very favorite place in the world. I’m slowly collecting more pieces to put alongside it, but the thought of cutting into it is still a wee bit scary.”

Contact us here with your complete mailing address and we’ll mail your prize soon!

Thanks to all who participated! We have another giveaway coming at you this week so stay tuned! :-)

Summer of Sewing Giveaway with Fresh Family Traditions

Summer of Sewing giveaway with Bloomerie FabricsIt’s summer here in the northern hemisphere and kids are out for the summer. We’re catching up on family vacations, hanging out at the pool, and soaking in some vitamin D. But that doesn’t mean we stop sewing around here! How could we?! We’ve surrounded ourselves with so much good fabric it’s easy to be inspired. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’ve been working on some paper-pieced stars lately. Paper-piecing projects or block-based projects are great for summertime because you can easily squeeze in some stitching time and get stuff done without it taking you away from all the other fun things you should be doing in the summer. :-)

If you need a little push to get you stitching this summer, you’re going to love our 1st Summer of Sewing giveaway!

We’re gifting 1 lucky person a fun, retro-themed prize pack featuring Fresh Family Traditions by Sherri McConnell, a fat quarter bundle of 30s Playtime from Chloe’s Closet (Moda Fabrics), and a trio of Presencia 60-wt thread in red, white, and blue! (If you haven’t tried Presencia, do it! The 60-wt helps achieve those perfect 1/4″ seams and it produces less lint than other brands — including a few premium ones that I’ve personally used.) Prize value is $58+.

So here’s how to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this blog post, telling us about one of your favorite sewing things. Could be a fabric collection, a designer, a quilt block, a notion, a book, or anything else quilting/sewing related. (For example, I could say that I absolutely love Wonder Clips. Or… I love anything designed by Heather Ross. Or… I love Japanese novelty prints. You get the idea.) – earns 1 entry

2. Regram or share this giveaway on Instagram (just use the picture at the beginning of this post). Make sure to include #summerofsewing and tag us @bloomeriefabrics so we can count your entry. – earns 2 entries

Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. Open to USA and international. Winner will be selected at random and announced on the blog no later than July 18, 2015.

Good luck! And let’s get sewing!
