Did you miss out on coming to the Stitch Gathering this year and instead had to gaze with envy at all the photos of the amazing goody bags??!!
Well here's a chance to win yourself the very last GOODY BAG!!!
It's packed with fabulous stuff - let's take a closer look at some of it, like the fabric!
There are beautiful fat quarters from Michael Miller, Cloud 9 Fabrics, Amy Butler from Coats UK, Dear Stella and Lewis and Irene! Plus a bundle of 4 FQs from my Kaufman/Windham supplier Anbo. AND to top it all off the lovely folks at Blend Fabrics included a bundle of 8 FQs from their The Makers line by Cori Dantini!!
Thank you so much sponsors!
Ooops I guess this should have been in the last photo because we also have a pack of Liberty Tana Lawn pre-cut hexagons (28!) from Duck Egg Threads. I've already been using mine, see below.
Every bag also got a copy of Love Patchwork and Quilting, this one has all the useful paper pieces for the free gift (and includes my Buffer Wheel quilt pattern!). There's the always very popular Frixion pen from Pilot and the very welcome pack of Nairn's Oatcakes, both sponsoring our event for the 3rd time - thank you Pilot and Nairns! Also supporting us for a third year (with something in each photo!) are Coats UK with this fab bag pattern. Plus a sachet of Soak for you to try out at home.
Lovely Alex Veronelli from Aurifil has also been an enthusiastic supporter of all 3 events, this year sending everyone a large #50 spool and a spool of floss! Alex also sent 2 thread selection boxes for the Tombola, thank you Alex! Coats also included cotton thread and Millwards needles. DMC sent a skein from their lovely Colour Variations range of variegated stranded cotton. And myBearpaw popped in the pack of beads :)
Thank you so much to all our wonderful sponsors! We couldn't do this without you!!
Before we get on to the Giveaway nitty-gritty, let's have a look at some pretty EPP hexies! I used up the Duck Egg Threads pack and added a few more. The papers came from a previous issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting. This is being slowly turned into something. Very slowly...
So how do you get your hands on all that booty!!!
I spend my whole time sewing (with a few breaks for a little crochet and knitting!), I will swing between EPP, Improv piecing, needle turn applique, strip piecing, foundation piecing - I love them all! And embroidery and sashiko! But how about you? Am I very unusual? Do you prefer one technique over all the others? I'd love to hear your thoughts in a comment!
