We only wish we could give each and every one of you a gift but, as it currently stands, we do have 17 amazing goodies to be gifted at random. In no particular order:-

Oh Sew Quaint

3. Megan Nielsen Patterns

Megan Nielsen are offering a great discount of 20% off the Darling Ranges Shirtdress  at checkout with the code : SEWTOGETHER  They are also gifting any one of their patterns (PDF version) to one lucky recipient. How about the fabulous looking Flint Trousers? With their unique crossover closure at the side seam, they can be made as either shorts or trousers.  I’ve got my eye on this one too!

Hayley is giving one of her Medium sized monthly postal subscription boxes worth £35. Full of themed fabrics and notions; there is 2.5m worth of fabric plus four fat quarters together with assorted  haberdashery.

Sew Me something

5. Two Sewing Patterns of your choice from Sew Me Something

Jules is offering two of her beautifully crafted and easy to follow patterns (paper if you’re in the UK or PDF if overseas) – each of her patterns are named after a Shakespearean heroine – they are based in Stratford-upon-Avon after all! Choices include the Helena Dress, the Julia Pocket Top, the Portia Trousers and the Imogen Top. Choose your patterns and become the heroine of your sewing room!

I have one of these and I love it!

8.  £30 Gift Voucher from Beyond Measure

Grace is offering a £30 gift voucher to spend on anything you like in store! With so many gorgeous goodies available one lucky giftee  may be some time choosing!

Wendy Ward

9. The Tapton Skirt & The Fulwood Dress Patterns by Wendy Ward

Wendy is gifting two patterns from her collection. The Fulwood Dress is a loose fitting pull on shift dress with no fastenings, making it suitable for beginners and the Tapton Skirt is a comfy fold over waist skirt, designed to be flattering and super comfy as well as a quick sew. Available in paper format in the UK or as a PDF for an overseas recipient.

Helen's Closet

10. The Blackwood Cardigan by Helen’s Closet

Don’t we all love the Blackwood! Helen’s latest pattern release, the Blackwood Cardigan is designed for practical layering with its close fit at front, neck and shoulder so that it can be worn open under jackets or over tank tops. In my estimation, this is an immediate classic!

Helen is also hosting a sewalong for the Blackwood.

Sew Over It vintage

11. Sew Over It

I’m quite sure Sew Over It’s range of sewing patterns need no introduction! One of our lucky giftees can choose whichever pattern they like; perhaps something from their Vintage or Ultimate collections? And if you haven’t already got their Shirtdress in your collection now would be a great opportunity to snap it up! I’m hoping to get their Alex Shirtdress (from the City Break : Capsule Wardrobe e-book) to my sewing table.

Toaster sew House 7

12. Sewhouse Seven

From their range of unique and simple sewing patterns, Sew House Seven are gifting to TWO lucky recipients! 2 PDFs and 2 paper patterns are available! If you’ve already got the phenomenally popular Toaster, how about their Nehalem Pant & Skirt pattern, the Mississippi Avenue Dress & Top or the Alberta Street Pencil Skirt?

Art Gallery Fabrics

13. Cotton Reel Studio

This online fabric store and haberdashery offer a range of gorgeous fabrics including Atelier Brunette and Art Gallery Fabrics, lingerie fabrics, patterns and kits. A £30 voucher is up for grabs to spend on anything you like!

The Tunic Bible

14. The Tunic Bible by Julie Starr & Sarah Gunn

Fit the included base pattern and then use the collars, neck placket and sleeve variations to make a multitude of different style tunics from simple and modest to daring and chic!


15. A dress length of fabric from Suzy’s local Fabric Shop

The lovely family from Suzy’s local shop in Córdoba, Spain are offering a dress length of fabric. Suzy has asked her Instagram friends to decide between 6 – I think the floral No 6 is in the lead at the moment!


16. A Voucher from Sewisfaction

The lovely Sheona has just opened a new online fabric boutique and haberdashery and is offering one lucky recipient a £30 voucher (plus free P&P) to spend on anything in store!

Let’s get sewing!!

    Great competition! I like the fact that the prizes are given randomly, so I might just have a chance. 😉 Never entered a sew-a-long before but very tempted by this one. Only one problem, there are so many patterns to choose from, so glad Helen did a list. 😊
