Sew Grateful Giveaway!

Lovely Friends, in accordance with the Sew Grateful schedule, we’re holding a giveaway here at A Fashionable Stitch. I’ve combined a few of my favorite things at the moment just for you! Yay! Up for grabs is the Sewaholic’s sensational Refrew top (just in stock via the shop!) and 2 1/4 yards of this 60″ wide summer punch cotton knit (enough for any of the versions of this fabulous knit top!). I’ve also thrown in a yard of white tailor’s tape for good measure as the pattern calls for a package of twill tape – this for the shoulder seams so 1 yard should be more than enough. The fabric is from Yellow Bird Fabrics and would be a great, no fantastic sew-up for someone who hasn’t worked with knits before and is ready to give them a try. It’s a perfect knit for the Spring weather I’m dreaming of. And don’t forget, you don’t need a serger to use this pattern or fabric, so definitely enter!

To enter, I want to hear what you’re “sew grateful” for – and by this I mean something sewing related, Ok? Ok. As for me, I’m so happy to be apart of a great online community that shares their talents, secrets and style with each other. I am so inspired, everyday, by the lot of you! Thanks so much for your support and sweetness to me! Now, enter away! You’ve got til Friday, February 9 and anyone, anywhere is welcome to join in. May the most grateful win!

kiss kiss,

  • Hannah - What a wonderful giveaway! I’m “sew grateful” for all of you sewing bloggers. I am constantly inspired by all of you, and am always learning so much (for free!). You all have made me realize that I can sew my own clothes without making them look like some sad junior high home ec. class project. Thank you! :) ReplyCancel

  • krystina - I’m sew greatful that I can make things that actually fit me. I have struggled so long with RTW clothes that don’t fit properly. Even though it takes longer to make myself something instead of buying it, the payoff of being able to make something that actually fits is so worth it!ReplyCancel

  • Rachel C. - I am sew grateful for the amazingly generous sewing community. All of you who spend so much of your time to create tutorials and free patterns to share (I’ve made and regularly wear 3 of Colette’s Sorbettos). More importantly I grateful for all of tips, tricks, and advice that is freely given. Some information I would otherwise have had to purchase a book or take a class. Some of which would have taken years (if ever) I would have learned/realized on my own. Thank you for taking your time, intellect and skills to share. The collective amazingness of the community is one reason why I am sewing after a long hiatus.ReplyCancel

  • nela - Hey!
    Im sew grateful that my old sewing machine survived just until I finished my balldress. The funny story is, a new sewing machine was already ordered without knowing that the old one wouldn’t work at all so soon.ReplyCancel

  • banjojen - I am sew grateful for my mother teaching me to sew many moons ago in fourth grade! Without that example, I may never have been able to make all the wonderful things I have created for myself and my family!ReplyCancel

  • Chris Howard - I’m grateful for sewing. Let me tell you why. First of all, sewing was a way for my mom and me to share without it being stressful. Throughout our lives, we always had a lot of conflict, but never over sewing. Second, sewing always gave me beautiful clothing for not a lot of money. People frequently stopped me on the street to ask where I purchased my clothes. Later on, it gave me beautiful clothing and lovely gifts for my children when there was no money in my house. Third, sewing helped finance my way through college. I sewed and often made enough money to buy groceries while I was in college, raising four children and working. Lastly, I quit sewing when my mom died several years ago. However my daughters gave me a sewing machine last summer. I have had the time of my life sewing gifts and I plan to again make some clothing for myself (I haven’t worn anything but sweaters and jeans for the past few years). Sewing has always given me much more than I ever gave to it.ReplyCancel

  • Emily M - I’m grateful for the new Singer I got for my birthday! And for the office that my husband splits with me so I’m not taking over the dining room table constantly!ReplyCancel

  • Kristin - I’m actually so grateful for the online community as well. I’m a newbie, and I’m finishing up my first skirt this ewekend, and I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it if it wasn’t for all the amazing tutorials and helpful hints online!ReplyCancel

  • Katherine - I am sew grateful that I ran into my first sewing blog three years ago (which one? who knows!). It reminded me that I learned how to sew as a child at summer camp. I stumbled into the sewing blog community almost unintentionally, but it has renewed my old sewing skills, introduced me (virtually, of course) to bright, thoughtful, and committed sewists, and invigorated in me an interest in taking the time to make things instead of mindlessly consuming them. Thank you all!ReplyCancel
