The 12th Day of the Giveaway! Last Chance to Win!

Thanks for all the great comments from yesterday’s question: How many times have you wounded yourself with a pin?

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve jabbed myself. The worst was when I was taking in my bridesmaid’s dress for a friend’s wedding. I got myself a good one and smeared blood on my beautiful blue satin dress! I nearly had a heart attack and ran to the bathroom to wash it out. It came out alright, but I wear a thimble whenever I can now.

The winner of the poke-hazard free Getta Grip sewing clips is Darlene J., who said, “More times then I can remember. Seems like a part of every project.” Congratulations! Email sewnews@sewnews.com with your mailing address to receive your prize!

  1. Marilou P says:

    When I first was teaching myself new things I always tried them out on throw pillows. So now I have too many to count! I have to give them away!

  2. Blossom says:

    I actually only have one throw pillow in my house, in my daughter’s bedroom. I plan on sewing some pillows though, so this book would be perfect!

  3. Victoria Butler says:

    5 or 6 in living room, family room (need more) and 8 in bedroom. I want more in the living areas but need to learn how to put zippers in them. I’m also making throw pillows for my daughters.

  4. Jackie says:

    I have 6 scattered through out the house. I seem to end of giving away the ones I have sewn recently. They are a quick and fun way to try out new sewing techniques on.

  5. sue says:

    None! Guess I better win this book and make some!

  6. Malia says:

    I have at least 8.

  7. Jean says:

    I am wondering if I should include those 5 loose-back cushions on the sofa since my grandsons love to “throw” them. Otherwise, I have 6 in the living room and 5 in the bedrooms. And I also have two fancy throw pillows that are awaiting a new home – black with with dragonflies are not for everyone! I would love to learn more techniques and styles.

  8. zapper45701 says:

    Five on the couch, but that doesn’t include the five on the bed!

  9. Krystal Bennett says:

    Only 2, and I didn’t make them so this book would be great for me!

  10. Marilyn Snow says:

    Let’s see, there’s the four that came with my living room couch and loveseat, the four that came with the family room couch and chair, the couple that I have made and then about twelve that my daughter has slated for her room reading nest.

  11. Cynthia C says:

    I only have the ones that came with the sofa (2).

  12. BJMarley says:

    I have only 1 or 2 throw pillows. But I want to make more.

  13. Towanda Foster says:

    I have 4 throw pillows on the couch and 6 throw pillows on the two (2) bed.

  14. Carla G says:

    I have 4 on the couch and that is it. I need to make some, but haven’t had time…too many other projects. :)

  15. Debbie C says:

    Off the top of my head, I can think of six throw pillows I have made.

  16. Linda Winson says:

    I have a few on each sofa but I love to change them with the seasons, this book would give me more ideas to spruce the house up.

  17. Sylvie Jobin says:

    I only have two in the living room but would like to make some more, seems to be the perfect project ;)

  18. Gloria Hemmen says:

    I have 6 throw pillows out now. My favorite is an embroidered pillow I stitched for my mother in law 40 years ago. It came back to me when she passed away. Now it’s time to make some for my granddaughters. Always looking for new ideas!

  19. Joyce Person says:

    20 plus

  20. Joan says:

    I have 4 throw pillows.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Kim says:

    Only two on my couch. But I did make two envelope pillows for my girls as one of my 1st ever projects! They were fun because they were easy! Straight lines rule!

  22. to my husband’s dismay, three in every room!

  23. nd mizzi says:

    4 in living rm, 7 on my bed, plus 22 on grandchildren beds!

  24. Jan Sheets says:

    I have too many! At this last count I have six in my living room, four in my master bedroom, two in the guest room and 4 in the den. My husband has four in his man-cave. That comes to twenty! Only because I love making them. I have given at least twice that many away! The truth is I love comfort and you can’t have too many throw pillows when it comes to being comfortable.

  25. Carolyn H. says:

    I usually have two on the sofa in the family. They are getting “tired”. Right now I have 2 Christmas ones instead. 6 on the bed. One in the living room. Sometimes I have a second one in the living room.

  26. Mary Bosker says:

    I have 14 throughout the house, they are all used, sometimes abused but always loved.

  27. Marianne H says:

    I have no idea how many throw pillows I have. Recently I bought seven new ones for my living room. There are some in three of four bedrooms and maybe eight in the family room. So, the lowest possible count is 22. I could really use the give-away to cover the older pillows instead of purchasing new ones when I want to change up the color scheme in the rooms where I use pillows to decorate.

  28. Cynthia Hickerson says:

    I have 7 throw pilows, I think. I have plans to make many more this year.

  29. I actually only have 8. The question to me is how many Throw pillows have I made FOR OTHERS–to numberous to count.

  30. Jamie Fukofuka says:

    I only have ONE throw pillow. My mom made it for me. I would love to win this book!! My friend wanted me to make her some throw pillows!

  31. Michelle Hall says:

    none that I have made so this would be a great spur for me to make some and freshen up the look of my house.

  32. Eileen says:

    Right now I don’t have any. Have some fabric and pillow forms, so hopefully, I can make some pretty soon. This book would be much appreciated.

  33. charlene miller says:

    Not enough! Actually, I counted… 7

  34. Nancy says:

    I have four and my first after Christmas project is recovering them. They are brown and dark and I do not like them…I am thinking white with color…

  35. trish beard says:

    I have more throw pillows than i need but always want more.

    I kike to try different patterns and designs

  36. Gillian Power says:

    Not enough!!

  37. Rosemary says:

    10 plus 1 more Christmas pillow

  38. Suzanne says:

    Several, but I’ve only made one basic throw pillow. I’d love to try some different styles.

  39. Heidi says:

    I have several in every room, and the covers come off… always a good reason to make a new cover !! Some of them have been sewn by my mom, my kids, and myself as well. :)

  40. Linda T says:

    I don’t know how many I have. There are a couple of trashbags full of them plus what is out on the display.

  41. Allie says:

    About 4 handmade throw pillows on the couch, and just 1 on the bed. I want to make more! :)

  42. Careema Gourdine says:

    …at least a dozen.

  43. Mama Lusco says:

    About a dozen around in use!

  44. Kayce Crews says:

    I have 6 pillows.

  45. MZW says:

    Throw pillows are a part of most rooms in my house. 5 in the living room, 9 in the family room, 1 on the sun porch and 7 in the bedroom. Honestly, I didn’t think there were 22 in the entire house and that doesn’t include the ones in the closet in storage. Oops, add 3 more for a total of 25.

  46. Karen A says:

    Two to three per couch(3) and several on our beds. I think the total is 15.

  47. Evelyn says:

    There’s six in the family room and a few back-ups in the closet.

  48. Jeanne says:

    About a dozen and a half…most of which are out being used but a few in the closet needing recovering!

  49. Cindy McCarty says:

    Oh, gosh, a number of times. How many times does a person need to get them in their feet to learn that you should NEVER go barefoot in the sewing room? My engineer husband thinks that I should never have pins on the floor, as if I place them there on purpose. I have said several times that I would like to stencil around the top of the room “Thou shalt not walk barefoot in the sewing room, for in that day that thou walk barefoot in the sewing, thou shalt surely step on a pin.”

  50. I have four, I want to make new ones. to match my curtins.
