Sew Cool Brother Sewing Machine Giveaway and More!

Do you guys remember how I kept bugging you guys to check out my Skinnyscoop list this past July? Well it was for a reason. I was working my darndest to be on of Skinnyscoop's Fantastic Four for July and guess what?! Thanks to all of your help, it worked! I hit 1,000 views on my list (along with four other folks) and was awarded a top spot in the "List Making Hall of Fame" (no, this is not a real place). Anyhoo, that contest had a prize and guess what?! I am sharing it with you guys via, what I deem, a pretty awesome giveaway! So what do you guys have the opp to win? Well, take a  look see.

One lucky winner will get not one but two awesome prizes! First, for even the novice sewer, the Brother XL2600I Sew Advance 25-Stitch Free-Arm Sewing Machine is a great, trustworthy machine that can be used for multiple crafty, fashionable projects! It has great user reviews so I am sure you guys won't be disappointed. I happen to think that even if you want to learn to sew, having your own machine is the best motivator to keep practicing! Not only will the winner receive the Brother sewing machine but they will also win a copy of my new favorite sewing book, The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook: packed with easy-to-follow tutorials, five adaptable sewing patterns for a skirt, blouse, dress, coat, and bag, and fifteen step-by-step sewing projects, this book gives you the basic building blocks to begin sewing and the tools you need to move beyond the basics to designing and customizing your own wardrobe. Be your own fashion designer! This prize retails for over $175 so that's a nice chunk of change xoxo
So what do you do to win?

  1. Oooh I would so (sew?) love to win this. I've been wanting to learn how to sew for a long time but I don't have a machine.


    As far as feedback...I think the content is great but design-wise, when I come to your blog my eyes don't quite know where to land due to the lack of borders/outlines.

  34. I love sewing but every time I want to make something I have to borrow my MIL's sewing machine and I think she is kind of annoyed about it because I ask for it too often.

Especially now when my kids outgrew all their clothes and I would really like to make some new clothes for them
