Sew Mama Sew – Giveaways Past and Present

Hey y’all – I’m giving away stuff!

If you’re not in the online world, let me break it down for you. Every year the fantastic Sew Mama Sew hosts a Holiday Giveaway where they invite craft bloggers and sellers to give something(s) away to the craft community. For online sellers, it’s a great way to increase sales, for bloggers to increase hits, and for readers like me, we get to win stuff and find new blogs to read. Win-Win-Win!

edited to add – Hey look! I missed the deadline! Yeah, I should have posted this the night before. What is Eastern time, anyways? Am I east? Oh well. We’re still on with the giveaway, and you’ll probably have a better chance now too!

I’ve entered and won before. But I’ve also added some pretty awesome blogs to my Reader after finding them on the 2009 Giveaway. So, I thought I’d recap and do a little giveaway of my own.

Ginger Hendrix over on Wiener Dog Tricks is totally hilarious, uses re-purposed fabrics for all of her projects and won over my heart by using a Squeeze reference to title a quilting post. Also, she keeps it REAL. She’s got normal kids hanging off chandeliers too. No way! She’d rather buy fabric and notions from the thrift store too. Oh yeah! She throws stuff together at a whim and answers questions later. A woman after my own heart. So, this first prize is named after her – “The Ginger”:

Yup. A big-ass pile of fabrics. Please ignore the awfulness of the photos, holy smoke winter natural light in Toronto is pathetic these days.

I had this wonderful concept of creating little charm packs of fabric tied up in bows. But then, seriously? Ni and I have colds. Lu has been a night time terror. Ad’s been working the weekend. And really, you just want the fabric.

Included in the pile are some beautiful kimono pieces, some 60’s linens, and the rest are happy cottons. Every piece is AT LEAST the size of a charm square, if not way more. Because I was too tired to cut. And I need a new rotary blade.

Next up is Michelle over at Mich L. in L.A. who is a jewellery designer. A wacky, dollar-store trolling, dog-loving lady who didn’t actually do a SMS giveaway, but did the Envelope of Doom project, which I participated in and was so much fun. Plus she has the hilarious “Guess the Mystery Thing” challenge. Michelle makes me believe I TOO can make jewellery, even though I don’t have any of the fancy bits and bobs.

Lots of the easy-peasy tutorials that Michelle posts are made of plastics, and one was even made out of water bottles. So, this prize is named in her honour – “The Mich”:

Polar Fleece! (Polar fleece is often made of recycled bottles, although I’m not sure if this stuff is or not…let’s just pretend it is.) There’s enough of the yellow to make a simple poncho for a two or three-year old. I made this one for girls for Christmas – post coming soon. And there’s lots of pieces to make ornaments or even these awesome mitts.

Last, but certainly not least, is the final prize, The “TruDat”:

True Up is where I learn about textiles. When you want see what’s out there and how it came to be, this is where you need to go. So, this prize is a whole bunch of new cottons. A bit of Moda, a bit of Japanese linen, a bit of Kaffe Fasset, and much, much more. All at least 5″x5″, most definitely more.

So, what do you have to do to win? Let me know in the comments which prize you want – pick one please – and let me know what is one of YOUR favorite blogs you’ve added to your reader in 2010.
That’s it! And yes, I’ll ship internationally.

Thanks for reading, and thanks to Ginger, Michelle and Kim for writing!

    I love True Up, too, so I’d pick the TruDat honorary gift. :D I’ve also been reading Malka Dubraska’s gorgeous blog for a year (or maybe longer). I love batiking, and Malka’s fabrics are among the most beautiful and simple creations I’ve seen. I love being privy to her creative processes. She inspires me to craft with reckless abandon. :D

  8. Amy says:

  12. ryder says:

  13. Sarah says:

    I love the Tru Dat prize.

    I have added to my reader. It’s a great crafty blog.

  14. Tiffany says:

    I would love to win the “TruDat” package. My favorite blog is

  15. Cammie says:

    I like the trudat.
    I love the blog v and co. She is whitty, kind, funny and creative.

  16. Eerika says:

    If I am lucky enough to win, I’d love “The Ginger” package please.

    I’ve added approximately a gazillion blogs to my poor overladen reader this year, but one of my most favourite additions is Absolutely Small:
    Not only is Claire hilarious and talented in equal measure, she makes the most awesome, and absurd, little soft toy chickens that wear pants! :D

  17. Tiffany says:

    I have just added and started following about 30 blogs in the last two weeks! I’d have to say my favorite is…moda bake shop. My favorite giveaway bundle is trudat. :)

  18. Gill watson says:

    The Tru Dat please!
    My favourite blog I’ve discovered this year is

  19. Jessica C says:

    I think I’m more of a TruDat kinda girl. One of the newest blogs I’ve added to my reader is www(dot)pleasant-home(dot)blogspot(dot)com because of her scraps-along. I love quilts made of scraps, and she inspired me. Thanks for a generous giveaway.

  20. Alisha Smith says:

    the TruDat please. One that I added this year is ‘CrazyMomQuilts’

  21. Heather says:

    The Ginger definately. A new blog I added this year is Cottonopia: Absolutely a must if you are interested in vintage textiles.

  22. I would love the “Ginger”. Little bundles tied with bows would have been cute, but you are right. We just want the fabric, and the bow would have been untied and the pieces sorted and “stashed”. I so get the way life gets in the way of perfection.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Emily says:

    I like them all but if I had to pick just one, I’d have to say the first set. :)

    This year is the first year I’ve actually been into blogging so I have a ton in my reader. My recent crush is The Daybook- a style (and not crafty) blog. My crafty blog crush would probably be No Big Dill.

  24. laurel says:

    ooh – i like the truedat…. and i’ve discovered cluck, cluck sew recently….

  25. Sara says:

    Ooh the True Dat is a beautiful set – and I have added Dana-made-it. com to my weekly blog reading this year.

  29. Kati S. says:

    I’d love the TruDat pile. There are some fun fabrics in there.

  30. Deanna says:

    I have too many favorite new blogs! Anything with sewing and kids. I guess PrudentBaby.

  31. Maya says:

    I would like to win the TruDat bundle. Is it cheating to say Sew Mama Sew as my favorite blog? Cause I love reading it.

  32. sarah says:

    I love adding new blogs too…True up was a 2009 find for me too so I’m hoping for that prize. Other good ones I’ve discovered through SMS is “Film in the Fridge” and “cluck cluck sew” Thanks for the great giveaway!

    And have you checked out ? I know I’m late to the party, but she’s my new favorite.

  37. Alice says:

    I’d love the Ginger! I’m afraid I don’t use a blog reader, so I can’t recommend anything, sorry.

  40. Pauline says:

    I’d love to add ‘The TruDat’ to my stash. Thanks for the chance!!

  41. TracyDK says:

    I think the Mich is the one for me. I’m not sure about making a poncho for my 2 year old, however, I would make him a lap throw for the car. That would be awesome for winter time. :)

    As far as new blogs in 2010, I love Ginger. I read her blog faithfully. :) I also love Oh, Fransson.

  42. Lisa says:

    I love the TruDat collection of fabrics. I am new to blogs, I have been reading a bunch of them, but definetly Sew Mama Sew.

  50. baukje says:

  51. Angie says:

    I would take the “big ass pile” of fabric, if you please!!! I don’t really have a favorite blog….I have found so many great ones lately, it takes me over and hour every morning to see what additions have been made to them!!

  52. Cath says:

    Hmm…blog i’ve added this year… I used to just pull it up manually every day b/c there are easily like 20-30 posts PER DAY, but then I realized that for about 6 months I wasn’t reading it and I think I lost a lot of awesome decorating/organizing ideas; so i’ve broken down and added it.

  124. Andi says:

I laughed at your comment about the poor winter light, because I think the same thing every time I take a picture lately (I live in Canada too – New Brunswick, although I was born and raised in the GTA.) My favourite new blog isn’t about fabric, but food and photography (and just a whole lot of fun).

  125. Evangeline S. says:

    I’d say either the first or last set of fabrics. As I tend to only use fleece for kid quilt backings [which fortunately, for the time being, I’m done with]

    My fav blog – as of now – is Lady Harvantine [which i’m sure I spelt wrong! lol]


  129. Michele says:

    Okay first off, what an amazing giveaway! Wow I am in for the Ginger, no two ways about that!

    Second, hey a fellow Canadian! So nice to meet other Canuck bloggers! This Sew, Mama, Sew thing is madness isn’t it? It’s my first time! What a blast!

    Well you take care and have yourself a fabulous Christmas!

  130. jane says:

    the Trudat!

  131. Corley says:

    True Up looks like it would be alot of fun. My favorite new blog is actually Cluck.Cluck.Sew. I just started quilting this year and have added about 2 dozen sewing blogs!

  132. Em Komiskey says:

    My fav? The big ass pile of fabric. Why? Because I like surprises, and it’s random, so to get something like that in the mail would be such a fun surprise.

    I really just started exploring the craft blogging world this year, so I think all of them in my reader were added this year. Can’t pick just one. Red Fish Circle? Old Red Barn co? No Big Dill? Made?

  133. Katy says:

    Fellow Canuck here :) I am loving the “tru dat” :) And a fave blog… I will have to say Epbot… speaks to the girl geek in me :)

  138. Nikki Rainey says:

    Tru Dat looks awesome. I have only been blogging for about a year now. Once I stubled on them I thought it was a great idea nd I jumped right in. Moda Bake shop is one of my favorites. psiquilt is another favorite.

  139. Something looks familiar about the “big-ass” pile of fabric. Maybe it’s the name…grin.

    Lovely! Sign me up for the “big-ass” pile of Ginger fabrics :-) I’m just outside of T.O. and was griping about the lousy light situation just yesterday. And my rotary blade needs replacing too. Boo. Plus I think my Google reader is going to explode. I got hooked on the New Dress A Day blog this year, and now that her year is up, I can’t wait to see what she’s going to be up to! Thanks for the chance to win.

  149. Tina H says:

    Hee Hee Hee…what a great, fun find you’ve been tonight. “Just keepin’ it real?” Love it when you run across someone so down to earth that they just sparkle with joy. I have to admit I like the homely little messy piles in the first offering. They look like they’re ready to go off somewhere and become a loved item or two. I don’t know how to quilt, exactly, really new to all this but I have been playing with art dolls. And, ya just can’t leave ’em naked, right? Maybe itsy bitsy quilted skirts or something? I could maybe pull that off! Thanks so much for making me smile tonight. Tina

  150. tanya says:

    well – i am a self taught sewist(? sewer just seems wrong) and I googled how to make baby dress and found tow insiring blogs luvinthemommyhood and prudent baby. Both so wonderful – they have lead me into this wonderful world of craft/sewing blogs!

    I just started surfing the web for crafty ideas a few months ago, and so far my favorite blog is the sew mama sew one. I love tutorials, because I really don’t know what I’m doing most of the time – I just throw stuff together and see if it works!

  187. Maroesja says:

    I would pick TruDat. I can’t tell you which is my favorite I added this year, because I’ve only visited maybe 1 third of al participants ;) I try not to add too many new blogs (otherwise there won’t be any time left for crafting myself ;) ), but that’s very hard.

  188. Karen says:

    I would love to win the cottons in the third prize!

  208. crissy says:

    I really like “trudat” I haven’t really added any new blogs in 2010, I took a really long “blog break” earlier this year so this giveaway is the perfect opportunity to find some new keepers!

    please visit my giveaway if you get the chance!

  211. Sarag says:

    Can I enter even if I’m a cranky Western Canadian living in Quebec? … ;) I’m having a tough time deciding which pile of fabric is more amazingly peachy – one or three. I’d have to say three. By a hair. Two blogs I’ve enjoyed finding this year – Tiny Happy from New Zealand, and Mouse Notebook from England. I’ve been to New Zealand for four months of hiking, and am fascinated by England, so easy peasy to see why. Plus they sew lovely things and have interesting things to say.

    • Michelle says:

      I think that as a cranky Western Canadian living in QC should get TWO entries – just for dealing with QC winters (I cried last time I was in Mtrl in the winter it was so cold)!

  212. kristine says:

    I love the TrueDat. I also like Iammommahearmeroar, get blog for boy ideas!

    Great bundles of fabric, I’d be happy with any of them, the first none is kind of a mystery, so that would be fun. Great blog, going back to read more, thanks for the fabric.

  215. kelly says:

    Oh How I love Ginger from Wiener Dog Tricks!!!! she’s the best, I look forward to her posts, speaking of which she’s been awful quiet lately hmmmm. I really like the True up pile, so enter me there, but Ginger is hands down the best blog I found in 2010!

  216. Dianne McLean says:

    My pick is True Dat. My favourite new blog is a fellow Canadian at Confessions of a Sewing Dork.

  221. dearmrsreese says:

    I’d love to win the first prize please. I enjoy reading Ginger’s blog as well. My favorite blog added to my reader in 2010 is She sews amazing clothes for herself.

  222. Kelly says:

    I like the last one the best – the TruDat bunch. One of my favorite blogs I added after last year’s giveaway is Thanks for participating in give aways! ~Kelly,

  223. Lindsay says:

    True Dat looks fabulous. You have a really entertaining blog–I’ll be adding it to my reader!

  224. Patty says:

    I’d pick TruDat if I won. One of my favorite blogs is Cluck Cluck Sew.

  225. Mary Haub says:

    Dang. I am not trolling for blogs this time around–faaaar too much going on and faaaaaar too little holiday break for it. FOR EXAMPLE I am coming to visit lovely Toronto in a couple of weeks with friends. WOO HOO! And that is why I stopped by your blog… But to answer your question, “truedat” works for me :-) And also I found Alisa Burke this year, and she is stellar. :-)

  226. Aleesha says:

Most of my favorite blogs are knitting types, but Oh, Fransson is one of my favorite sewing blogs. If you don’t mind a bit of woolly goodness then is great as is

  236. So hard to pick! As a newbie to sewing I’ve a sad excuse for a stash and so could definitely find room for trudat or Ginger…or the fleece even! I’ve found so many wonderful blogs, this one here I loved the idea of getting some personalised stamps made for my kids –

  237. Helle S. says:

  239. Claire says:

  240. Dianna says:

    I like TruDat. My favorite blog is Sunshines Creations. Thanks for sharing.

    Since I just started blogging this past summer I’ve picked up all my hundreds of blogs in 2010. One I just found recently that I’m enjoying is The Q and the U. I like bundle number 1 or bundle number 3. Not much of a fleece person. Thanks for a chance at your great giveaway.

  256. Holly U says:

    Love the way you phrase all this! Either cotton pile would be awesome.

    I love Geninne’s Art Blog. Sure wish I could draw like that!

  257. I wanna say the TruDat, because I am also a thrift store shopper and the scrap queen of my guild, so new fabrics would be a novelty in my stash. If I were staying true to my roots, I’d say the Ginger. But, true to my indecisive Libra nature, I really can’t decide! Either? (both? There I go, trying to push the envelope!) No really, I guess I prefer the TruDat, but if I won, I’d be happy with anything. And one of my new-to-me favorite blogs is

  258. Candace says:

  268. My favorite is the Ginger pack. Love the vintage project.

  298. Knititall says:

    Lovely concept to name those prizes after your favorite blogs and bloggers :)
    I agree with you, I’ve found so many great blogs through this SewMamaSew blog tour.
    A great one is this one: – it’s really exciting and interesting to read about all the vegan options for crafting.
    I’d prefer the TrueDat prize if I win :)

  299. Jennifer P says:

    I really like the Ginger because of the 60’s fabric! I just adore 30’s to 70’s vintage items so I’ll pick the latest vintage inspired blog that I found this year! Casey’s Elegant Musings is a whole lot of fun for me to read.
    belle31971 at gmail dot com

  300. RobynK says:

    I love browns and greens and linen and have spent lots of time in Op-shops selecting really nice fabrics that were going cheap so I’d have to go for the “Ginger” collection! I’ve only been blogging a year but “Among the Gum Trees” is one of my favourite blog sites.

  301. Megan P. says:

    I’d love to win the TruDat bundle!! Awesome fabrics. I have added so many great blogs to reader this year, one of my favorites is Great blog! Thanks!

  302. meghan says:

    My favorite is the tru dat bundle. I really like Oh Fransson’s blog.

  303. faerieem says:

    OH, I love the vintage pile in the first photo. Definitely.
    I’ll be adding you to my reader as my children arne’t hanging from chandeliers, but they are definitely up in my space.

    My first favorite (and first) crafty blog & therefore the most influential as without it I wouldn’t be sewing now (well, not *NOW*, but in my life at all), is one by friends of mine who made me realize I didn’t ahve to be perfect:

  304. Jen B says:

    Put me down for the TruDat (although I wouldn’t say no to the others either. ;)) One of my favorite blogs from this year is another is With a little boy to sew for these have been a great inspiration!

  305. alli b says:

    Tru Dat is amazing

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  306. ikkinlala says:

    I’d like to enter for “The Ginger” please.

    It’s tougher to answer the other question because I haven’t kept track of when I found most of the blogs I read. One that I think I found in 2010, though, is

  307. I will love the Ginger.
    Well, there is a looong list of blogs on my blog, were I am adding new ones all the time.
    But the ones I found via this giveaway are:

  308. Anne says:

    Oh, true dat indeed… (That’s my fave)

    My favorite new read is Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing.

  309. I’ve added TONS of blogs to my list this year…Oh Fransson, In Color Order, Red Pepper Quilts…the list is actually much longer. There are so many inspiring people out there! (I think I’d like the 3rd package, but would also be happy with the 1st.)

  310. Kerry says:

    I’m loving your giveaway piles and as a bonus – three more cool blogs to check out! Thanks! They sound like kindred spirits from your descriptions. And here I thought I was the thrift store queen! What I will do with the fabric will depend on what there is when I sort it out into piles and humm and haw for awhile (assuming of course that I win! lol). Big matchy pieces would be baby quilts for the hospital. Smaller but not too small will become stuffed toys for the Toy Society. Little bits and bobs will find their way into crazy quilt projects I make. Ah, yes, I am a crazy quilter so watch out for me at the thrift store – I’ll fight you for a button, bit of lace, or silk shirt. And dont’ even get me going on bits of jewelry. Heck, I’ll sew almost anything onto a quilt! Well, guess that is more than you wanted to know, eh? Wishing us all an early spring!

  311. Debra says:

    Lovin Trudat. One of my newly added blog loves is Jaybird Quilts. Thanks for the chance.

  312. felicity says:

    TruDat FTW! Thanks for the giveaway but more importantly for your hilarious blog. I’m a now a follower, and bonus! a fellow Canadienne (in Vancouver).

    I *just* joined the 20th century and found the awesome online world of quilt blogs this year so everything was new to me! I’m really enjoying and

  315. macskakat says:

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the chance to go in the draw. :-)

    I especially like The Ginger pack – the idea of finding some vintage fabric in there fills me with excitement!

    I’ve added about 20 blogs to my reader list from going through the Sew Mama Sew giveaway list so far – I can’t think of which one to pick from that list, they are all so fantastic!! We Sew Crazy is pretty fun to read.

    Thanks again, and have a lovely Christmas! :-)

  316. Lynne says:

    Great fabrics! I’d love any of them but if you make me pick I’d choose the Trudat. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  320. Lisa says:

    I like TrueDat. And Stray Stitches has become one of my fav blogs this year.
    Very generous giveaway, thanks for the chance!

  321. Um, I think the TruDat would have to be the one that I’d pick – it’s got a couple of fabrics that I’m going to be searching for if I don’t win.

    Now, picking a blog? Isn’t that a bit like asking me to choose between my children? Um, um, um, ok, I’ll pick – she always uses fabrics that I wish I had and is a lovely lass.

  322. Marguerite says:

    Marmeecraft! She creates this magical world for herself… love it! And, pack 3 :)

  323. Sherri S says:

    Lordy, the fabrics under the Wiener Dog listing (the kimonos, 60s linens, etc.) make me swoon! I’m late to the party, but I truly adore Meet Me at Mike’s…really, just love love love it! Thanks!

  324. Theresa Connolly says:

    Tru Dat! And my new favorite blog :

  325. Tiffany says:

    I like True Up the best. And one blog that has stayed at the top of my list is Oh Fransson!

  326. Jansie says:

    Tru Dat looks pretty awesome, but they all look pretty generous to me!! This is my first year blogging, so I have found a TON of wonderful new blogs. I love Sew Mama Sew, Moda Bakeshop, Stash Manicure, p.s. I Quilt, and so many more!
