My Good Fortune Can Be Your Good Fortune!

A few days ago I ordered new pillows for my bed. A friend of mine has the most wonderful pillows, so I decided to get  a pair for my husband and myself. Since I placed the order, I have been anxiously awaiting their arrival. Funny, once I placed the order, the pillow that has been a favorite is suddenly substandard. My husband went out to walk the dogs yesterday evening and as he walked out the door he told me that there was a package. "Yea!!!, my pillows." He said that if it was the pillows, they were awfully small since the box was about the length and width  of a magazine. To my surprise, the package was from Burda and there was a gift enclosed! Sweet!!!
Remember the Best of Blogging Award?
Well, the contents were a part of the prize package.
I received the Fall edition of Burda Style magazine(my first Burda Style magazine!!), a book by Denise Wild entitled Mend and Make Fabulous, and 2 DVDs by Denise  on learning to sew.
I flipped through the magazine and saw this ad for the DVDs, a $40.00 value!! Nice!
Okay, so here's the deal. If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, I think I can safely say that you know that I know how to sew, kinda sorta anyway ;) So, I really don't need the DVDs. What I would like to do is pass them along. Do you have a friend, a child, a grandchild that would like to learn to sew? Or maybe you somehow stumbled across my blog and you would like to learn to sew. The DVDs would make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. They are in the original packaging, so they have not been viewed, they are brand new. 
If you would like a chance to win the DVDs, just leave a message on this post. I will ship them anywhere. You MUST be a follower of this blog. Let me know how you follow in your comment. I will draw the winning name on Monday, December 15th, 2014. 
Good Luck!!!!

  1. I gave my nephew's wife (niece-in-law??) a sewing machine that I had won in a giveaway last year. She is very much interested in learning how to sew, but much has happened over the last year and she hasn't had the time. Now she's pregnant, and is anxious to learn! This would make a great gift for her. I follow you on Feedly.

  4. You definitely don't need a DVD on learning sewing :D I know the basics of sewing as a hobby but if I win it then I will view it once(as I always feel I lack the proper way of beginning to sew) and pass it on to another who would love to get started. I follow you on FB and bloglovin But read posts only on bloglovin.

  6. I would love to give the how-to-sew to my daughter. After resisting my influence for all of her childhood, now that she is a grown woman, she has finally caved (ha!). She bought a sewing machine recently, and she is a self-taught geek in every other area of her life, so a how-to would be very useful to her. It would also mean she doesn't have to come to me and ask for help -- I just know she's waiting for me to say "told you so!" in some form or another.

    I follow your blog via Feedly, and love all the drafting/pattern making ideas you come up with, especially those based on squares and no-waste ideas.

    Cheers,

    t.

  7. Hi Rhonda. What a generous giveaway. I have a friend who just started sewing. She has asked me for some lessons. It has taken us almost three months to sew a pair of pajama bottoms because we can't meet very often. While I love sewing, I must admit I may not be the most patient teacher, so I think these DVD's would be a great help to her. That way she can work on her skills and when we do meet, we can fine tune things. Please toss my name into the hat. Besides following you here, I follow you on FB and SewNews. BTW-I'm doing the Robson Sew Along. Well, as soon as I receive the pattern.

  11. The other day, a young lady in my building shared with me that the sewing machine she had just ordered had arrived! She is so excited and determined to learn to sew for herself and her kids! If my name is drawn, this set would go to Beverlyn as I am sure she would put them to good use!
