{Sew Grateful Week} Giveaways Part 1!

Oh boy! Oh boy!  You are all going to love all the giveaways in today's post(s).  Yup, there were SO many giveaways, I couldn't include them all in one post!   So, this is Part 1 of a 2-part round-up post for the Sew Grateful Week giveaways.   A big thank you to everyone whose hosting a giveaway as part of the week!  So here we go...

The Sew Essentially Sew Giveaway for Vintage Vogue Pattern 1137 (sizes 8-14):

I am so excited about this giveaway from Graca who blogs over at Sew Essentially Sew.  Up for grabs is this amazing vintage vogue dress and coat pattern (for sizes 8-14).  This giveaway is open to everyone and Graca will ship anywhere!  You can enter the giveaway (which is open until Friday) here...  I've been lucky to win a couple of giveaways from Graca myself!  If you haven't check out her blog--definitely do so! I just love it!  As she puts it...

"I'm Graca, a Canadian prairie gal who lives far from any respectable fashion districts but who loves to sew. I've been sewing off and on for many years. In a perfect world, sewing is a way for me to relax. It is something I love to do when I have some spare time on my hands. Any day sewing is a happy day. Yes, even if I have to put down the sewing needle and pick up a seam ripper. I love the creative process of starting a project from shopping for the fabric to hand stitching the final details. Ooooh, and sincere compliments. Luv those!"
So pop on over to Graca's blog and enter this lovely giveaway!

The House of Pinheiro Giveaway for The Ultimate A to Z Companion to Needlecraft Terms Book

A fabulous giveaway from someone in the next town over from me!  Kerry who blogs over at Kestrel Finds and Makes is holding a giveaway for a Colette pattern of your choice!!  Kerry has made the Sencha (3 times), Beignet (twice), Rooibos, Crepe, and Violet Colette patterns.  She also has the Peony and Jasmine lined up in her sewing queue. She says...
"I love Colette Patterns because the designs are beautiful and classic, and with their fab instructions, they're hard to beat. And I know they are much beloved amongst you all too! Which one would you pick?" 
To enter this fabulous giveaway, you just need to be a follower of Kestrel Finds and Makes through Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin' and leave a comment on her blog to say which Colette Pattern you would like to win and why.  Entries are welcome from anywhere in the world and the giveaway closes on Sunday the 12th of February at 5pm GMT!  Go check out the giveaway!

A Fashionable Stitch Giveaway for the Sewaholic Renfrew Pattern, Knit Fabric and Twill Tape

If you don't know Sunni who blogs over at A Fashionable Stitch you are missing out! Not only is she a fantastic seamstress, she has one of the best online sewing stores and to top it all off she is so nice!  She is hosting a giveaway for Sewaholic’s sensational Refrew top (that she also has in stock via her shop) and 2 1/4 yards of 60″ wide summer punch cotton knit (enough for any of the versions of this fabulous knit top).  She's also thrown in a yard of white tailor’s tape for good measure as the pattern calls for a package of twill tape for the shoulder seams.  As Sunni says...
"The fabric is from Yellow Bird Fabrics and would be a great, no fantastic sew-up for someone who hasn’t worked with knits before and is ready to give them a try. It’s a perfect knit for the Spring weather I’m dreaming of. And don’t forget, you don’t need a serger to use this pattern or fabric, so definitely enter!"
To enter, just leave a comment on A Fashionable Stitch blog and tell Sunni what you’re “sew grateful” for (sewing related). The giveaway is open until Friday, February 9 and anyone, anywhere is welcome to join in.

The Four Square Walls Giveaway for some Fabulous Wool

To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment over on Andrea's post by Friday the 10th of February (11:59pm EST) about the number one reason you love to sew.  The giveaway is open internationally and Andrea will choose a winner randomly and announce the results on Saturday the 11th!  YAY!
