SewMamaSew 2012 Giveaway Day I


***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***thank you.

SewMamaSew Giveaway numero uno:


It's that time of the year again when SewMamaSew coordinates a massive giveaway day that now lasts the entire week. This enables you to check out and enter all the giveaways.
I've never managed this.

I have, however, found a couple of new friends by looking at other crafty people's blogs.

 I have two giveaways this year.
This first one is for superb sewing supplies - most of which are vintage.
Buttons, Patterns, Laces, Trims, Needles, Elastic.
Random.



 Three patterns for girls: Simplicity 5551 ( sz 10 girl),  Simp 8065(sz AA toddler 1/2,1,2), & Simp 3244 (sz 8 girl).
Buttons and trims to embellish. Elastic and needles, snaps, covered buttons, etc., etc..

Even some tiny rick rack in white & gold.



And you might get some of these tasty apple cider caramels. If there are any left. . .


I'm running my usual "Tell me your favorite Christmas Carol" contest.
2010's winning song was "O, Holy Night".
2011"s winning song was  "O, Holy Night".

I bet you can guess what 2012's favorite song will be. lol.
Surprise me.

All entries will be entered into the  pot of randomness and given a stir. I will ship to either a domestic or an international winner.

Vote (comment) on your favorite Christmas carol between Monday December 3 & Friday, December 7th, 2012 (5pm PST). I will draw the winner either Friday night when I get home from work or after I finish work on Saturday morning.

If you are unclear as to whether you are a no-reply commenter, please leave your contact e-mail in this format: specialperson(at)wherever(dot)com. ***Added Monday night - already have three who I have no way to contact.


You can see all the other entries linked up here - at SewMamaSew.
Please take time to look at SewMamaSew's store as they are the world's fastest shipper of fabric.

They are a fabulous sponsor with about a million tutorials on things to sew or craft.

  3. my fav christmas song is "I love to tell the story" which I have no clue why it is only heard during Christmas since it has nothing that would limit us to the Christmas season.
    For a "real" Christmas song, I would say "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas"

    ReplyDelete
  4. Fab giveaway! My favorite Christmas song (at least this year) is Go Tell it on the Mountain.

    Weird that O Holy Night always wins?

    ReplyDelete
  60. I really like What Child is This

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favourites are three Australian carols. They are Carols of the Birds, Three Drovers and Christmas Day. Here is a site with the words: http://heathhill.blogspot.com/2005/12/australian-christmas-carols.html
    And here are the videos of them being performed.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85XtT8F4YvY&feature=related - the first song is Carol of the Birds, this is the best version I could find the others are too slow.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlkflpc3vUc - Christmas Day
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn5zn9bcb0Q - Three Drovers, not the most professional but definitely the most Australian.

  73. I love Silent Night! :) Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! Happy Holidays to You! :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I like the minor key ones - O Come O Come Emanuel is my favorite (esp. as it's an Advent song, not a Christmas song, so my more liturgically strict friends can't grouse at me that "it's not Christmas yet!" when I sing it). (Also-rans: In the Bleak Midwinter, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Good King Wenceslaus - the last because it's got a story!)

    ReplyDelete
  75. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Barenaked Ladies. check it out :)

  76. I really like rudolph the red nose reindeer. And of course 'O, holy night' ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love Carol of the Bells. And it really isn't a Christmas song, but Pachelbel's Canon is amazing. And they play it enough around Christmas for me to count it, I think. -grin-
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love Silent Night, in German. It is so much more beautiful, as Stille Nacht!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love TSO Christmas Canon..so great :)

  80. Little Drummer Boy

    ReplyDelete
  81. Not to be a copy-er . . . but O Holy Night is actually my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  82. As tempted as I am to say it's O Holy Night just because the RNG seems to favour it, mine is Good King Wenceslas - the only carol my dad didn't have a silly version of.

    ikkinlala(at)yahoo(dot)ca

    ReplyDelete
  83. In the Bleak Midwinter. Angels We Have Heard On High. Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella.
    OOOld fashioned, I guess.
    What a lovely giveaway.
    I looked at your towels, but considering you've got some other folks with real flying action (holy smokes, ladies! I like riding my BIKE for fun!), I thought I'd leave myself out of that pool.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh my, I LOVE your giveaways, right up my alley. . . So hope I win! Anyway, onto the favorite Christmas song, sorry but I have to buck the trend because mine is "Baby it's Cold Outside" the duet, especially the Barry Manilow version (yep, I just admitted that publicly)!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I would have to say Silent Night and what a fantastic giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  86. My vote is Carol of the Bells. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Not apparently very original, but I love O Holy Night (when well-sung!), But O Come O Come Emmanuel is right up there, too. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  88. My favourite is I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. But I know it isn`t a well known carol... Harry Belafonte did a version of it.

    ReplyDelete
  89. out of all the giveaways I've seen I'm most excited about this one. I would love to get my hands on that trim. I've been looking for trim at thrift stores but I never find it like that. the ribbon anyway.
