Today is Day 4 in the 13 Days of Giveaways to celebrate Season 7 of Sew it All TV! For Day 3 on Friday, the lucky winner of the Coats & Clark zippers is Brenda S.! Congratulations, Brenda–please check your email to find out how to claim your prize.
We have a lot of fun taping Sew it All each season. Getting to meet and learn from all of the talented and creative people that appear on the show is really inspiring. It’s even more fun to appear on the show as a guest myself! I first appeared in Season 4 on “Baking Beauty,” demonstrating how to make a fun retro apron. (In case you missed it, catch a preview of it on sew.tv, where you can watch all the episodes of Seasons 1-5 of Sew it All online.) In Episode 711, “In the Loop,” I show how to make an infinity scarf from a variety of fabrics. It’s such a versatile project and great way to showcase a fabric you love, even if you don’t have enough to make an entire garment. Here’s Ellen and me on the set with the same scarf made from sheer, lightweight and sweater knit fabric:
We show you how to make the scarf start-to-finish, and we also give lots of tips and techniques for handling each fabric type on a sewing machine or serger. Be sure to tune in when Season 7 airs on your PBS station! Check pbs.org to find when your local station airs Sew it All. If your local PBS doesn’t carry Sew it All, email or call them to request it.
I’ve also created some fun new projects for Volume 7 of Sew it All magazine, including a quick and easy charm-pack quilt and some pretty Sashiko-embroidered coasters, so today we’re giving away a copy of Sew it All, Volume 7 to THREE lucky winners! For your chance to win, answer the following question in comments section below:What types of projects would you love for us to feature in the next season of Sew it All?
Check back tomorrow to hear the winner of today’s prize, plus another great prize and a sneak peek into another new episode! Good luck! Mark your calendar to check sewitalltv.com on March 1st for a sneak peek at all 13 episodes, including full instructions and free patterns!
