The Sunday Giveaway

I'm having a HUGE sort out of my sewing room, supplies, patterns and stash over the next few weeks.  To be honest I think it will take me until the end of the year, there is just SO much one collects/hoards over a 25 year period!

Because I'm going back to employed work I need to re-orgainse the sewing room properly.  It's been a tough decision but I will no longer sew for customers.  Rachel's wedding dress due at the end of this month, will be my last.  It's been a great experience but I'm putting the last 10 years behind me to concentrate on me, Ian and Jack.  I will keep the sewing classes going though as I really enjoy that side of my business!

Anyhoo, the reason for this post is to let you all know that I will be having lots of items to giveaway.  Books, notations, patterns and fabrics will be high on the list.  I will post most things anywhere in the world but some may have to be the UK due to weight. 

First up is the following book as I have two:  I can thoroughly recommend it to both novice and experienced tailors.  I have referred to it a lot since I took the Gill Arnold class at the end of June.  It covers traditional, speed and a mixture of the two type of tailoring with excellent photographic reference as we have come to love with the Singer Library.



This giveaway is open to anyone in blogland.  As long as you are a follower, and leave a comment before end of day Wednesday 17th August I'll include you in the draw. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  We're going our for our Sunday Lunch today, so no boubt we will be snoozing by 4pm (why does a Sunday lunch make me so sleepy?)
