Thank You! (an encor giveaway)

Well, the chaos of moving has officially begun {only two weeks after we had anticipated it}.  The movers have emptied our house of our belongings, besides the few things we're packing in our vehicles, and we probably won't see them again for a month.  We're busy getting this empty house cleaned out so we can check out in the morning and begin the drive across the country.  I've been sewing like a mad woman, and stockpiling posts, so I should be able to keep this blog hopping.  I'll pop in ever now and again too, to let you know where we are and what we've been up to.  But now, on to what you're really here for, the giveaway!

As a thank you to all our new {and not-so-new} followers, we're going to be giving away three sewing patterns from our shop to three different people.


The winners will get to choose any pattern they'd like, and we'll e-mail it directly.  However, there is one little catch, as this is a Thank You giveaway, only followers are allowed to enter {don't worry, you can still sign up to follow and then enter!}.  We don't usually require giveaway entrants to be followers, and have no intention of doing so for all our giveaways either.  But, this time, we wanted to do a special thank you to all of you who are following along, leaving comments, and participating!  So, thanks again and good luck!

Oh, and, as usual, we must have a way to contact you for you to win, so either make sure your e-mail is in your blogger profile or enter it in the comment {more details here}.  This giveaway will be open until next Monday, June 6th.  Good luck!

  2. Hope all goes smoothly with the move. I was following via Google Reader but I assume you meant we need to be visible followers via Google Friend Connect so I joined there too. :)
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Good luck with the move. I know how chaotic that can be! One good thing... living without your "stuff" for so long will help you detach from it... I'm sure you will find that when you start to unpack, you will have "outgrown" things that you didn't even realize you didn't love anymore! PURGE PURGE PURGE and make more room for the things you love that make you happy (or at least feed your fabric addiction)! Thank you for thinking of your followers in the middle of that!
