During the SewBrum sewist meet-up taking place on Saturday 04th October we’ll be holding a raffle to raise money for Parkinson’s UK. The raffle will take place in the afternoon at Guthrie and Ghani in Moseley. Lots of lovely companies have generously donated prizes and I thought it was about time I showed them all off.
OK, so Singer have donated a sewing machine! This is the Singer Talent, model 3321.
Simplicity have donated three patterns (1755, 1696, 1873) and their Simply the Best Sewing Book. I’ve seen great versions of all three of these patterns online, including Amy’s version of 1755.
Quadrille have donated both Great British Sewing Bee books.
Have you been reading Love Sewing magazine? They have donated a subscription to the magazine which features lots of dressmaking patterns.
The magazine also features a certain meet-up in their current September issue!
Gather have donated a paper copy of their hot-off-the-press pattern the Buchanan dressing gown. I’m looking forward to seeing this pattern made up and I’m totally crazy about the artwork. (Image courtesy of Gather).
SewOverIt have donated two paper patterns, the Betty Dress and Ultimate Trousers. I’ve seen loads of great Ultimate Trousers popping up on blogs lately.
Hannah from Sinbad & Sailor has donated a Hepworth Dress PDF pattern. Have you seen Winnie’s lovely versions of the Hepworth? (Image courtesy of Sinbad & Sailor).
Craftsy have donated enrolment on a class of the winner’s choice. There are plenty of sewing classes to choose from – have you been reading Tasha’s recent reviews of a number of Craftsy classes?
Abby from Blue Ginger Doll has donated a paper copy of the glamorous Ava Jacket pattern. Andrea made a very cute red version when the pattern was released.
Clover have donated three sets of sewing supplies. Each set includes: Magnetic Pin Caddy, Seam Ripper, Wonder Clips, Flower Head Pins, Bobbin Tower, Thread Tower.
I really love the magnetic pin caddies, especially in pink. Maybe I’d leave less pins lying around for Phil to sit/step on with one of these!
Tuttle have donated two Japanese sewing books (in English) by Sato Watanabe. Basic Black which features a wide variety of patterns and Stylish Skirts which features a multitude of skirt patterns.
Lauren Dahl has donated a course enrolment to Pattern Workshop. I’m a Pattern Workshop student and highly recommend it if you have any interest in designing sewing patterns.
Prym have donated a sewing box and whole host of sewing accessories to fill it with.
Pauline Alice has donated three sewing patterns of the winner’s choice. Perhaps a chance to try the new Turia Dungarees pattern? Pauline recently posted a round-up of some of the Turia’s that have shown up online so far.
Charlie from This Blog is Not For You has recently launched her pattern company Audrey & Me Patterns, and has donated a set of her first PDF patterns under the label, the Hepburn Dress and Skirt. Charlie has made some lovely versions of her patterns & I also love Daniela’s version of the Hepburn dress.
Marilla Walker has donated a copy of her brand spanking new Maya dress and top pattern. In fact this pattern is so new it’s not yet released:) Marilla has printed a copy of the PDF pattern for the winner & also provided some Merchant & Mills chambray to make a Maya with.
