SMS Giveaway Day and an announcement

Edited to add: This Giveaway is now closed...winner to be announced
 
I can't believe it's December ALREADY! Where did this year go? I've got some good stuff to share with you guys today! I hope you all are ready for this! And if you are visiting for the first time for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, I'm so glad you're here and I hope you make yourself comfy and stay awhile! And if you really like what you see, I would really love to have you as a follower!
First things first! It's Giveaway Day!!! So, what am I giving away? I was talking with the AMAZING Jennie who just happens to own one of the best shops on Etsy EVER!!!! Her shop is called Zipit, guess what she sales? ZIPPERS!!!!!!!!
She sales YKK zippers at wholesale prices! Really Really Really good prices! I absolutely LOVE her and her shop! She has some of the best customer service I have ever had plus she ships at lightening speed! Really! And the selection of zippers? Unbeatable! She has it all!!!!
If you're not sure what colors you will need she sales rainbow sampler packs in a variety of sizes from 3" up to 16".
Or you can choose her assorted packs and get a little of everything! Those sizes are from 3" up to 22"!!!!!
She sales a variety of invisible zippers as well! They come in a bunch of sizes too!


 

Need some metal zippers? She's got you covered there as well! They come in sizes from 5" up to 16"! And guess what?
She sales rainbow packs of those as well!!!!
If you know exactly what color you need, she's got you covered there! All you have to do is click on the right size and pick your color! Or you can mix and match! She's very "custom order" friendly! I've even purchased a variety pack before and told her I didn't want this particular color or that color and I wanted more of this color and it was no issue what-so-ever!!!!
She also sales these cute zipper pulls!!! I love them! They add a little extra UMPH to your project! She's got tons to choose from!
So, what am I giving away?
The lucky winner will receive a $20 gift card to Zipit that way you can choose WHATEVER YOU WANT! Isn't she awesome?
I have a few rules for entering that will be at the bottom of this post!




I have something else I wanted to announce today! Remember that quilting bee I was telling you I wanted to start? Well, guess what?!?!?!? Sign Ups OPEN TODAY! They will be on a first come first serve basis! YAY! We have 10 spots open. We are now full! Thanks to everyone who has signed up!
Make it Modern will be a 6 month quilting bee with 12 members. So each member will be required to make 2 blocks a month. The blocks are to be sent out by the end of each month. I have the rules posted in our Flickr group that you will need to read through if you are interested. If you then agree to those rules you will need to fill out our sign up form. Please remember this is on a first come first serve basis. And my partner, Jamie is also announcing this on her blog today! We are taking up to 5 people for the waiting list just incase we have a member drop out or no longer be able to be part of our bee. We hope to make this as fun and laid back as possible! I will have another post later today or tomorrow with more details and the exact rules of the bee. We are hoping to start making blocks in Jan! We will email the members of the bee to let them know for sure they made it in or not just so there is no confusion!


Now, how do you enter my giveaway?
Pretty easy really.
#1- YOU HAVE TO BE A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG
#2- Answer my question: What do you like best about the online quilting/sewing community?
For me it's the friendship that I've gained. I've met so many AMAZING people through blogging and Flickr and IG that I wouldn't trade for the world! The online community of quilters are so amazingly nice, generous and caring it just blows me away!


So leave me a comment answering my question and you will be entered to win the $20 gift card to Zipit. Only one entry per person. This is for US residents only and the giveaway will end on Dec. 7th at 9pm EST. The winner will be chosen by random.org.
Good Luck!!!!
~Hope y'all are having a great day!!!~

I love that the online community exposes you to so many different things that you might not know about if you were limited to your local quilting community (in my case extremely small).

Tricia said...

I love how everyone is so friendly and helpful.

Marjorie Nath said...

I'm a follower. What I like best about the online quilt/sewing community is the knowledge that is so freely shared. When I was quilting in the 70's finding designs, techniques etc. was difficult but now that I've restarted quilting, the internet makes it so easy and I love the encouragement and great feedback that I see here. I'm still mostly a lurker, but that doesn't mean I'm not learning a lot from all of you bloggers and I read every post.

Tanya said...

I like the fact that everyone is helpful and nice.

jeifner said...

I've heard of Zipit's but have yet to order. I really like that when I talk about different fabrics and rotary cutters and thread tensions, etc. etc, no one thinks I'm crazy :) Many of my other friends/family are a little befuddled by it all.

Ginka said...

Just joined your blog, What do I like about the online sewing community, there is a lot to like but most of all I like that I can get together with people that like to sew and also learn new things with them without even leaving my house. Too bad bloging wasn't around when my kids were babies, it was so hard to get out then.

Cherise said...

I am self taught, and have learned mostly everything from online. I joined the Year of Schnibbles, which forced me to try many techniques, I likely would not have tried. I also like seeing one pattern done so many ways.

Hi! I am a new follower. I love the online sewing community because of the information, support I get and knowing that I can share sometimes. I don't have friends with similar interests locally, so the online community is important to me.


thanks for the giveaway!
