Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!





Better late than never, right?! I'm so excited to be participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day this year and I've got an awesome prize for you and one of your friends. I'm giving away a three-month subscription to Creativebug! One winner will receive a subscription, and in the spirit of the season, the winner will also receive a three month subscription to give away to a friend. It's a gift for you and for one of your friends!





If you're not familiar with Creativebug, you really should be. Creativebug is an online community of craft classes and video workshops with some amazing teachers, including Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Kaffe Fasset, Liesl Gibson, and more. I seriously love Creativebug for many reasons, and one of which is that as a subscriber, you have access to all of their workshops. You can also purchase classes a la carte if you prefer, but it's such a great deal to buy a subscription. And besides having such wonderful content, the workshops are so beautifully filmed which really appeals to me as a visual person.





I'm really proud to also be an instructor with Creativebug, too. My current workshops include  my Rainbow Jelly Roll quilt class,




my Diamonds in the Sky workshop...



and my Mod Stripes quilt class. All of my classes are geared towards beginner quilters, or those of you who are looking for modern quilt patterns that are easy to construct and have strong graphic impact. You can read more about my time on set here, if you'd like.

To enter, please leave a comment below. Be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner. The giveaway is open to everyone, both in the US as well as our international friends, and it closes on December 13, 2014 at 5:00 PT when I'll use the random number generator to pick a winner. Good luck, and be sure to check out all of the great giveaways on Sew Mama Sew!

I think this would be awesome to win, Heather. I love that you're doing it with a friend. I would choose my mom because we don't live in the same state (500 miles away) and when we see each other there's always some crazy event (like a holiday) so it's hard to get sewing done ... I have the diamonds in the sky quilt and will have to dig it out. Thanks!

Heather said...

I already know what fabric I'd use for the Diamonds in the sky quilt!
