Giveaway winners!

Happy Monday everyone!  I know, I set the deadlines for the giveaways over the weekend, thinking, foolishly with hindsight, that I would be drawing the winners, and even writing some blog posts.  [Cough].  Sorry.  That just didn’t happen.

But here I am now. Thank you so much for the incredible response to both the Fabric Godmother sateen giveaway and to the tickets for the Knitting and Stitching show.  I was overwhelmed!  I feel bad that I can only make a few people happy today.

For the wonderful sateen from the Fabric Godmother it will be:

I shall be emailing the lucky recipients as my next action today!  Then I’ll prepare a little blog post for tomorrow.    Sorry to all you disappointed ones.  Have a good Monday and see you tomorrow!

Another giveaway – tickets for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, Olympia

Hi folks.  Here’s something else to banish the winter blues – fancy a chance to win a pair of tickets for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show in Olympia, London, 5th- 8th March?

Well, I have five pairs up for grabs!   (Not valid for the Saturday of the show)

The Show celebrates a whole host of crafts, from knitting, sewing and dressmaking to quilting, crochet, cross stitch and home furnishing. Visitors can shop from over 200 exhibitors, attend a fun-packed workshop and browse outstanding displays of fashion and textiles.

I would love to see  The Knitted Farm Competition in conjunction with the book ‘Knit Your Own Farm’ by Sally Muir and Joanne Osborne. They’ve provided four knitting patterns from the book. Download patterns for a cow, pig, sheep and lamb where you’ll also find the entry form and rules.  Additional farm animals and objects are welcome too and prizes for the most innovative and best executed items will be awarded at the show!  If you are a speedy knitter there’s still chance to enter- follow the link above to submit your entry form by 9th February and you have to get your knits in by 20th February.

Sadly I can’t make it this time around.  I have yet to visit one of these shows, but they sound so full of crafty lovely stuff & stitchery that I bet you need to prepare with an early night, & a bag of snacks to keep the energy levels high.  So I am happy to be helping some of you to have a good time on my behalf 🙂

If you want to win a pair of tickets, leave me a comment by midnight 15th February and I will pick 5 random winners & post on the tickets to them the very next day.  (I guess this really is only for UK residents – sounds obvious !)
