Sew Grateful Week 2014 Sewing Pattern Giveaway!



While reading Minnado's House the other day, it became apparent that a thing called 'Sew Grateful Week' was...a thing. Being curious, I found out what this was. It's "an annual event to give back to the sewing community and to show gratitude for everyone that supports us in our sewing hobbies", hosted by Debi of My Happy Sewing Place. Yay! I'm in!

Today is Giveaway Day. I've been pruning my pattern collection as you may know and hope you will find something that appeals to you below. There's a good range of sizes and styles, from original vintage patterns to modern day designs.

*All modern patterns are uncut in factory folds.

*All vintage patterns are unchecked for completeness and vintage sizes do not equate to modern sizes so please consider carefully whether they will fit or if you have the skills to re-size them.

*I've made a few brief notes in case the pictures aren't clear enough, but can't answer individual questions, thank you!

Happy browsing!

UPDATE: I've just realised I haven't put a closing date on the giveaway. I think it would be nice to give it a full week so close date is Tuesday 4th March 2014. I would also like to have all addresses by then in order to do one big mailout, thank you and I should have said all unclaimed patterns will be donated to our local charity shop.

Happy sewing, 'til next time!

  1. Hi Philippa! I tried commenting from my phone and it doesn't appear to have gone through - so if you have a couple of repeated comments from me, feel free to delete them! If you are open to sending internationally, I would love to have Simplicity 3964 - I've been looking for it for a long time.

    1. Yes, I started it because I don't have lots of readers on my blog so rarely need to get into that competition thing. Also, for this giveaway because there are quite a large number of patterns I couldn't think of any other way of organising it efficiently! I will be in touch for your mailing address. Enjoy your patterns!

  9. Hi there! What lovely patterns you are offering up! I really like that blouse pattern, Womens Easy Make, (not sure if that is the maker or not). It's too big for me, but looks rather simple to either grade or photocopy and shrink down. Thanks so much and my giveaway is up so feel free to pop by and enter if there is something there you like! http://gjeometry.com/2014/02/24/sew-grateful-giveaway-how-about-some-red-and-some-threads/

    2. For some silly reason, as I logged on with my wordpress name I thought you'd get my email through that. Anyway it's delucan1@hotmail.com

    3. Thank you for leaving your email! I did click through from your wordpress name which took me to your blog, but I couldn't see an email address on it. That's the reason I always ask (nay, beg!) for email addresses when I host a giveaway - it saves me a lot of detective work! I'm contacting you right now for your mailing details.

      I've got some viscose set aside, I hope it will work with the pattern! Thanks again, you made my day!

      Delete
    3. I'm so happy to hear that :) I think viscose will be an ideal choice as with those gathers a soft fabric will work best. I'll be in touch right away for your mailing address.

    1. I totally agree - I debated over putting this pattern in, as it's a 100% classic straight skirt, ideal for all sorts of occasions...but I have more than one pattern of this style and I only really need one! Thank you for leaving your email address, I will be happy to send the pattern to you and will be in touch for your mailing address right away.

  15. How fabulous that you have squeaked in at the last minute to claim the last pattern! I hope you will enjoy it - that basic tank looks very useful! I'll be in touch straight away for your mailing address, as I'm sending the patterns off today.

  16. Yes, I was really lucky. The pattern is very nice and I like basic pieces because I can sew them in different ways and using different fabric colors. Thanks a lot!
