Sewaholic’s 200 Follower Giveaway!

As promised, here it is – the 200 Follower Giveaway!

First, thanks so much to all of you who read my blog and follow me. I am lucky to have such awesome readers, both the brilliant expert seamstresses who share their knowledge, the beginners and newbies, and of course, friends that don’t sew but read about my adventures anyways.

On to the giveaway!

You might remember the rather popular 100 Follower Giveaway, which was a pound of vintage buttons. It was so much fun, I wanted to do it again! Especially because these are in limited supply now – Button Button is nearly out of stock on the pound bags! (If you’re in the Vancouver area, get them while they last…)

The winner of the 200 Follower Giveaway will receive one pound of vintage buttons from Button Button, from the 1950′s and 1970′s. Assorted colours, shapes, sizes and materials – imagine the possibilities!

How to enter – three possible ways!

1. Enter by leaving a comment ON THIS POST.

2. Enter by tweeting about the giveaway (and then come back here and leave me a comment, letting me know you did.)

3. ‘Like’ Sewaholic on Facebook and follow with Google Friend Connect – or just leave me a comment if you already do!

Yes, you get three chances to win if you do all three! Just be sure to leave three separate comments, one for each entry, so I can add them up!

Who can win?

Everyone! This giveaway is open to all readers, with or without blogs, in all countries! You can enter until Friday, November 12th by leaving a comment on this post.

I’ll mail out the prize to the winner on Monday, November 15th.

So ready, set, go! Comment away!

    hi tasia! i’m a beginner-baby sewaholic and am working on my very first independent project. i’m making a jacket that i started in a sewing class at a fabric store, haha. though i’m nowhere near your expertise, i think i’ve got the bug, and your blog has certainly helped it along! you make so many neat things, and i appreciate your penchant for vintage. the sewtionary is also awesome and i foresee it helping me out a bunch!
    here’s hoping that i win the buttons and that they push me to tackle more projects, but i know i can count on looking back here for inspiration as well. :)

  34. Sara November 3, 2010 at 7:17 am #

  41. Jennifer S November 3, 2010 at 7:31 am #

    Love that you’re a fellow Canadian with a passion for making your own clothing. With your love of retro styled things too, you’ve inspired me to start sewing for myself again. The gift giving/selling kids stuff wasn’t making me happy anymore.

  42. Holly November 3, 2010 at 7:32 am #

    Perfect timing! I have been thinking recently that I really need buttons!

  43. Lisa November 3, 2010 at 7:34 am #

    OOOh sign me up too , how kind are you ?? x

  44. Millie November 3, 2010 at 7:44 am #

    There’s no such thing as too large a button stash. I’d love a giant big of vintage ones!

  45. Kate November 3, 2010 at 7:46 am #

  56. marian November 3, 2010 at 8:55 am #

    Hi! I just recently found your blog and really love reading your sewing adventures. Also, thanks for posting on waist stays — I had recently found out about them and was looking for an easy tute!

    I follow you with Google Friend connect/Google reader and I’ve liked you on fb.

    Congratulations on a milestone!


  57. K-Line November 3, 2010 at 9:00 am #

    Oh, these are gorgeous!!

  58. Jessica H. November 3, 2010 at 9:17 am #

    I’m a new follower but am already hooked!

  61. Lois November 3, 2010 at 9:28 am #

    I’m a fairly new follower. I love it that you come across as a real person. Some of the sewing magazines I’ve read are so far above my head at this point that I quit buying them. I’m just getting back into sewing after several years of not doing it. So I need inspiration.

  62. Catherine November 3, 2010 at 9:30 am #

    What a great giveaway! Thanks :)

  63. Catherine November 3, 2010 at 9:31 am #

    “Liking” and following…somehow, I had you on my RSS feed but wasn’t a follower yet. Strange. Keep up the fantastic posts!

  80. Katie E November 3, 2010 at 10:35 am #

    I have really enjoyed following your blog recently. I have tried to sew two dresses for myself since the summer, and both failed terribly. Your success makes me want to stick with it.

  81. B @ Sweet Limes November 3, 2010 at 10:35 am #

    Oooooh, I love buttons!

  82. Stephanie B November 3, 2010 at 10:36 am #

    I love buttons, especially vintage buttons – but any will do. I love all shapes and sizes and colors (although GREEN is my FAVORITE).
