>First Blog Giveaway!

>What a year it has been!  Lots of growth on Etsy, new pattern site, blog mentioned in Vogue Patterns Magazine, and this week the blog reached 1200 readers subscribed through Google Reader!  I’m blown away!

As a thank you to all my readers I’m doing my first blog giveaway!

If you’re the winner of the giveaway you will receive all of the following :

  • A darling vintage pattern from 1950. Advance 5380- size 15- Bust 33, Waist 27 Hip 36.  
  • One vintage 30s hairnet- great for your vanity!
  • Your choice of one of the PDF downloads- either the bra pattern or one of the e-books on my site. 
  • Free worldwide shipping!

To enter-
Subscribe to or follow my blog (if you haven’t already), and leave one comment on this blog post between now and Midnight on Sunday 2/20/11 PST.  The winner will be chosen next week by a random number generator.  If your comment matches that number (from the first comment being #1, second #2, and so on) you’re the winner!
Only one entry will be accepted per person.  To obtain the digital download you will need to create a customer profile on my site and I will credit your account the dollar amount of the download.  The credit is good for the download chosen only and can’t be used on other merchandise.

THANK YOU so much to everyone!  Don’t forget to share with your friends so they can enter, too!

Closing comments now, as the deadline has passed.  Sorry to those that didn’t make it in time.  I’ll announce the winner soon.  I hope to have more giveaways, so if you missed the deadline check back for another one in the future πŸ™‚
