Celebratory Give-Away (a 1944 Sewing Book)

edit Sept 26 2014:



Things I’m celebrating 1-2-3

1- Today my first 4 patterns were sent off to be printed 🙂

2- I am very close to 1000 followers, woohoo, go the blog!

3- My workroom is now super tidy after the disastrous bookshelf collapse of last week threw it into total uproar…

…which is how I discovered I had 2 copies of this 1944 soft cover Butterick sewing book one of which I am now giving away.

It contains 60 odd pages of really useful sewing advice covering alterations, marking, seams, pressing, some embroidery stitches, buttonholes, setting sleeves and tons more. Vintage yes, but still awfully helpful. It’s a little fragile but at 70 years old who isn’t.  A nice start to a vintage sewing book collection or a nice addition to what you already may have.

How to enter? Leave one comment below.

When does the draw finish? When I reach 1000 followers-

Countdown: 18 16 15 13 11 8 4 only 1 to go! 🙂

So it could finish next week or next month. Please help speed it up by becoming a VV blog  subscriber if you aren’t already!

(edit: or I will do the draw October 1st … if that date arrives before I’ve reached 1000)

Can anyone from anywhere enter? Yes I will mail the book anywhere in the world.

How is the winner chosen? I number the comments in the order they arrive and then use one of those online random number generators to choose for me. If anyone leaves more than one comment I number the first and ignore or delete the second.

Gotta run, bye!

  1. Yay for reaching 1000 and for having two copies of a great book!! Fingers crossed I win!

  2. Eek, am I too late? (I really should be more caught up on my blog reading!) I love your blog and your patterns, and this book looks like an incredible resource! I would love to even be given the chance to glance through it!
