I'm a little late with this, friends, but I'm excited to be giving away a copy of the December 2012/January 2013 copy of Vogue Patterns with my most recent article in it, all about my favorite vintage sewing machine models!
Of course, this issue of VoguePatterns is also chock full of expert sewing instruction, beautiful contemporary fashion, vintage pattern reissues, and so much more.
As always, this giveaway is open to MPB readers the whole world over. But wait -- there's more!
Starting next month, I will be lending my Y chromosome to the marvelous Mood Sewing Network. I am super-excited about this, friends. You can read more about the MSN here, but in a nutshell (quoting directly from the site):
Each month Mood Fabrics provides the Mood Sewing Network bloggers with
an allowance for fabric that they can spend online at MoodFabrics.com or
in our NYC or LA stores. The bloggers, in turn, will sew a garment with
Mood fabrics each month and then blog about it on their own blogs and
I mean, how cool is that?
Now I have a favor to ask of you: If you're interested in throwing your hat in the ring for the Vogue Patterns giveaway, it would be great if your comment could include something you'd like me to sew with my Mood fabric. Anything is possible with the exception of a wedding gown for Cathy.
Is there anything in particular you would like me to make? (A related sew-along is a possibility too.)
Readers, you have until this coming Sunday at midnight EST to leave a comment and make yourself eligible for the Vogue giveaway. I'll announce the winner on Monday.
Thanks, as always, for your enthusiastic support and valued feedback.
