Giveaway!!! — Now CLOSED –

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Yeap! We are having a giveaway and I hope you’ll like it.

How do you fancy winning an Amy Butler pattern?  Since many of you have said that this year you want to sew more, we thought of giving you some help and giving away one pattern.

The frency bag pattern is timeless and a favourite that we have to keep re-stocking.

What do you need to do? Well just let us know which ones are the 3 fabrics that you will use to make it (from the ones we have in stock).

If I was allowed to enter I will probably go for any of the Echo designs, but this new collection could also make a great bag, and then we have the solids! :) oh! decisions, decisions!

Anyway, leave a comment mentioning your 3 fabrics, next week on Wednesday 8th February we will mention the winner.

Good luck!!


Better late than never

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Apologies for being a bit late announcing the winner of a copy of Get the most out of your clothes.  As I mentioned before here my parents and sister are here and there was just so much to catch that I didn’t get a chance to do anything else.

Anyway, let’s get to the point.  The lucky winner is Meg Jones, she shared with us photos of a Kindle cover and a handbag that you just got to love.

There is a second little prize to Mary (tobit_e) who also shared lots of her photos of things she has upcycled.

Meg and Mary could you please send me your address so I can post the prices for you.  I think I have it but I just want to make sure I have the right information.

Thank you for sharing photos and all of your comments and photos also shared in our Facebook page.

And the winner of Stitch with Love is…

Monday, May 16th, 2011

First of all thank you to all of you who entered the giveaway and that shared a bit of what they have treasured or they will treasure. I am well known for taking lots of stuff to charity shops, but never any of the handmade things that have been given to me, they are my most valuable possessions and even when I don’t use them or wear them, they will stay with me and hopefully will be passed on in the future.

Now the winner of a copy of Stitch with Love by Mandy Shaw:

Karen “I really like Mandy Shaw! I have a bag I made from her book Quilt Yourself Gorgeous and I love it – so many memories from the scraps of fabric that went into it.”

PS  I have just received a few more books that I will also be giving away!  Keep checking the blog in the next few weeks xx

Giveaway Winners

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

This month once again we have to winners:

The winner for our monthly contest for November 2010 is Kelly Branton

Good luck to all of our customers for this months draw :)  ~~ We are also planning another giveaway with a very inspiring blog, so keep checking this blog!

Remix fabric

A wonderful waste of time

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Owning an online shop is in some ways bad news for me, or for the Belcher household if one must be honest.  I could easily click away my whole afternoon from blog to blog, passing by Etsy and Folksy shops, then back to Facebook and always with a window open for Twitter.

But on the other hand, I have a lot to thank the online community for, I get a lot of my questions answered in Twitter, amazing support in Facebook, kind words of encouragements post on on my blog and lots of inspiration from Flickr and the blogs that I read.  And let’s not forget the amazing people that I have met through social media!

So as a way to say Thank You, and to give something back to you all, I have created a Flickr group .  I am inviting you to join it to share and show off your lovely creations (and if you are up for it, the ones that didn’t come out quite as you thought).  On my side, I will be hosting regular giveaways among all  members to keep things yet more interesting.

And to start off on the right foot, our first giveaway will be The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam published by David and Charles.  I am sure you know about this amazing book, but can read more about it here.

The winner will be randomly selected and announced on this blog next Wednesday 1st of December (yes, we are on the last bit of 2010 already!)

Any questions, doubts and queries regarding the Flickr group please direct them to me, but don’t expect for a highly technical answer as I am still new to all this.

Good Luck and Enjoy!!
