Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

This giveaway is closed. Thanks for participating!
Well, tis the season. For giveaways! If you haven't had enough by entering my giveaway for the Quilting Gallery's birthday, you can enter again for a new prize here.
Make sure to visit SMS for a list of all the giveaways.

Anyway, if you're new here, hi! I'm Melissa Stramel, a pattern designer and hopeful fabric designer. I am with Andover fabric. My patterns are available in many places, you can click the link at the side for more information. If you like what you see here, I hope you'll be back for more. I respond to every comment that is not from a "no reply" blogger.

In honor of this blog hop, I'm having a giant sale. You'll have to use my store through my website. I couldn't get the coupon to work on etsy, sorry! The sale is 25% off all paper patterns and 40% of all e-patterns! Enter code BLOGHOP for 25% off paper patterns. Enter code BLOGHOP2 for 40% off of e-patterns. If you buy a combination of both, you'll have to check out each order separately to use both coupons. Your total should be right though since there are no shipping charges for e-patterns! So check it out. The sale is good through December 17 and all orders placed by December 16 will arrive by Christmas for US orders.

And now for the giveaway!

For this giveaway, you can choose from two options: either a copy of all four of my patterns as e-patterns or a choice of two of my patterns in paper. It's your choice.




And to sweeten the deal, I am also giving away 9 fat-eights plus and extra smaller piece of LouLouthi by Anna Maria Horner.

To enter, simply leave me a comment telling me your favorite Christmas carol. If you don't celebrate Christmas, it can be your favorite winter song. The drawing is open until Friday, December 16 at 5 pm CST. The winner will be randomly drawn with random.org.

Don't forget, you can still enter the other giveaway until Saturday, December 17!

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

Jesus loves you! Merry Christmas!
Love,
xoxo
