It's Been 8 Years...

...since I started Sew Random to chronicle a frantic costumer's dash to 'The Gospel According to Scrooge'. 

There's been a lot of thread through the needles since then.

But I thought I'd do a little giveaway to celebrate.  I went to the pattern cabinet and pulled out 8 patterns to put into an envelope and mail to one interested Sew Random reader.
All of these are new and uncut, although one or two may have been unfolded and inspected and put back.

I tried to get a smattering of designs and pattern companies...and I will admit that a couple of them hurt just a little....those Big Envelope patterns , well, you know...

But a giveaway ought to be worth doing, right?  And the winner can either keep all 8 patterns, or pull out the ones they're interested in, add a couple from their stash and give it all away again and we'll call it a pattern pyramid.

Anyway, a week from today I'll randomly draw a name from everyone who leaves a comment on this post and bundle up the lot and send them to you.  And if I have to spend $$ on postage to somewhere overseas, well, I will.

Cause you guys have hung with me through a lot of good, bad and ugly, and I'm grateful!

  6. Congrats on 8 years! I'd love to be included in the drawing. Should I win, then I'll just have to find time (and mojo) to sew some of them.

    Will it mess with your drawing if I ask NOT to be included? I have a few of those already and about a bajillion more...

  10. You were one of the first blogs I started reading. I've been lurking since 2007-ish. Your stats encouraged me to start keeping track of my own sewing. I get closer to sewing up as much as I buy every year. I like reading about your sewing adventures.

    1. Aw, thanks, Amy! And you've reminded me... I need to check and see if blogger has the widget issue fixed so I can update my stats...

  11. Yes! Throw my name in your generous giveaway! Hopefully it will inspire me to sew something instead of read sewing blogs, buy fabric and dream about things I want to make!
