Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways–Day 11!

Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway to a long weekend! Do you have any Labor Day plans? Barbecue in the park? Picnic by the lake? Well, before you go, make sure you hang around to enter these last three days of our Sew it All TV giveaways!

Thank you all for entering yesterday. It was so much fun to read about your favorite parts of a project. This one was a toss up for a lot of people, and very divided. Many love getting the inspiration and designing, while some dread it (getting started is the hardest part!). The middle is boring for some, while others love the anticipation of getting to the end. Most everyone loves the end though, except when the project doesn’t turn out quite as expected!

Many entered, but there can be only one winner, and that winner is:

Carol K E, who said, “I like the middle, most of the decisions are made and I can just enjoy the hum of the sewing machine.”

Congrats Carol! You won the book Sulky Secrets to Successful Applique by Joyce Drexler! Please email info@sewitalltv.com with your mailing address to receive it! And don’t forget to check out Ellen Osten’s episode “Serger Crochet” where she demonstrates how to make a tutu using a serger to emulate the look of crochet.

Our Day 11 prize is the book Deploy That Fabric by Jen Eskridge.

  1. We are very thankful for all of our service men and women. This USA would not exist if not for those brave souls who are willing to put their lives on the line for our safety and way of life (freedom!) There is no way to say thank you enough.

    I am a military brat, both my parents were in the Navy. My husbands Dad and most of his brothers served. My husband served, my brother served, we have family and many friends who are and have been service members.

  6. Sunny says:

    No direct relatives but both my church and my quilters guild have recipients of efforts by our members. When I was born, my father was in the army and my mother in the navy.

  7. Beulah says:

    My dad was in the army and oh the stories he would tell….
    But what is running through my brain right now is the song we used to sing at Sunday School as a child, ” I may never march in the infantry, ride in the calvary, shoot the artilary, I may never zoom o’r the enemy but I’m in the Lord’s army…..”
    I am so thankful for our service men and women who willingly defend our country minute by minute. May they be kept from harms way and walk in safety as they complete the task before them!

  8. Lauren A says:

    I have several friends and a cousin in the armed forces. I am so very proud of all of them. I have been thinking about all the charity projects I try to sew for and i think the next one will be one for the military oversees. :)

  9. Lawana Whaley says:

    I do not have a direct family member in the service at present.. but I have many of my friends family members that I keep in my thoughts and prayers every day. I also appreciate all those who serve and the sacrifice they and their families make each and every day. I pray for their safety and a world where there will not be a need for them to “stand in harm’s way” to protect us and our freedoms.

  10. Kim Monroe says:

    Here’s a short but sweet military tale…..
    I left my home in NY after graduating high school to join the Air Force. When I finished my enlistment I chose to stay in Phoenix, AZ. 4 months later I met my future husband ,who was in the Air Force, and we were married 3 weeks later. Fast huh?
    I’ve been a military wife for almost 18 years now, married to that Airmen I only knew for three weeks. We have two great kids and one of them has joined the Civil Air Patrol with aspirations to applying to the Air Force Academy and becoming a pilot.

  13. “Do you have a service member in your life?”

  17. Sue Haver says:

    Although I don’t currently have a family member serving, I have a long history of brave heros in my family. My Daddy, and all of his brothers volunteered to serve during WWII, and returned with wounds. My Daddy’s youngest brother, volunteered during Korean Conflict and paid the ultimate price, being missing in Action. The Army has now collected DNA from suitable family members to try and match remains which are finally being released from the Korean government.

    They were and I am a proud American and support our Military wholeheartedly. God bless each one.

  21. Carolyn says:

    My late husband lost his life as a direct result of his exposure to Agent Orange during his 15 month tour in Vietnam. I try to give back to the men and women who serve our country in as many ways as I am capable. The Deploy That Fabric book sounds like it offers ways for me to accomplish that.

My ex-husband was in the Navy in submarines, so I spent a few years as a military wife. I’m very proud of the service of all of these family members!

  31. Terri Beck says:

    My Daddy served in the army but he would never talk about it much. He saw his best friend get killed and so I guess that just affected him so bad that he just really didn’t want to think about it. I do know that he and his friend had a favorite song and that was “MY BUDDY” I lost my Daddy at age 59 much to young. We were inseparable. That was the worst day of my life.
