Week of Giveaways Day 5: Machine Quilting Gift Pack

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest. –Larry Lorenzoni

Today is the last day of my week of giveaways. I've been planning it for a whole year and it has been so much fun to roll out the giveaways and see your responses. I have really enjoyed reading your comments and seeing your excitement at my offerings.

Just one little housekeeping thing. I have all your comments/giveaway entries e-mailed to me. Unless you specify in your profile settings, the e-mail will not include your e-mail address so that I can contact you directly if you win. Unless I know who you are and where to find you, you must update your profile to include your e-mail address or leave your contact info in your comment. I have gone through and deleted any comments with no contact information {so sorry!}. So, if you've entered a giveaway, double check to make sure your comment/entry is still there. If it is gone, the reason is I have no way to get a hold of you if you win. The "no-reply blogger" button below gives instructions on how to set your e-mail preferences.

Now for the fun stuff. Today's giveaway is a gift pack of tools and gadgets for machine quilting. Behold:

Today's giveaway includes:
• A cute little decorated tin holding 200 size 1 curved safety pins with easy grip covers.
• A Kwik-Klip tool to help fasten the safety pins.
• A blue fine-point water soluble marking pen.
• A white fine-point water soluble marking pen {love this pen!}.
• A package of 5 universal quilting needles {size 90/14}.
• Machine quilting gloves in your size {to improve your grip; not pictured}.

The Fine Print:
• You can enter each giveaway during the week only once. However if you spread the word about my week of giveaways by posting on your blog and sending people on over to check it out, you can have one additional entry on one giveaway of your choice. After you post on your blog, leave a comment on my giveaway post for which you'd like a second entry with a link to your post. Please make sure to include my giveaway button somewhere in your post.


Such a Sew and Sew

• Non-blogging/non-Google users and international entrants are welcome.
• If you do not have a Google account, use the name/url {url optional} commenting option and make sure you leave your e-mail in your comment in the following format: address (at) domain name (dot) com.
• Comments with no contact information will be deleted.
• Google account users: not sure if your contact information will be attached to your comment? Click here:



• Duplicate comments will be deleted. Comment moderation is on, so don't panic when your comment doesn't show up. I'm notified of new comments and will approve them periodically each day, after which they'll show up on the post.
• The giveaway will close at 10:00 pm {MST} on Thursday, January 19th. Winner will be chosen by random drawing and notified by e-mail and announced here by noon January 21st.

Good luck!
