Giveaway- Pinterest...Pins and HomeSpun Magazine!


I owe so much to Pinterest and the lovely people who pin my work. I have so many new customers and contacts via Pinterest. I've discovered so many amazing techniques and lovely creations and talented artists. I have been fortunate to have been discovered by many others in return.

I can spend hours on this site. I love to just soak in all of the crafty goodness. It amazes me how many talented artists there are. I am inspired by their out-of-the-box way of patchworking, stitching, felting, photographing and just plain making.I learn so much, not only from the tutorials of the many generous souls who choose to share their crafts with all of us. I also discover what people like and how much they like it. That is an invaluable tool for a Etsy shop like mine.
Now I can't give you Pinterest, but I can offer a glimpse into my favorite Pinterest Pins. Here are my boards.

I am grateful for how Pinterest has changed my life. It never ceases to tickle me when I run across one of my creations. So when I was approached by Homespun Magazine, published in Australia to have my Flying Geese Needle Case in their August-Best Patchwork in their "Best of Pinterest" Pin feature, I was honored and extremely thrilled!



In honor of this auspicious occasion, I am giving away 2 "Stick With Me" pin assortments! Two winners will receive 10 assorted Pins in a Gift Box, just like the pin assortment you will find in my Etsy Shop here.



Look at all these pretty pins! You'll receive 10, already boxed, bowed and ready to give to your favorite sewer to add to your best pincushion or just to keep for yourself.





How to Enter-
First Visit the Homespun Magazine Facebook page here and give them some "Like".
Check out their Website Here.
Click on their Web Projects Page and write down the name of any of their Web Projects.
Then...
Just comment below and make sure that your contact information is linked to your profile or provide your email address so I can let you know if you won.
To win, don't forget to give me the name of one of the Web Project from the HomeSpun Magazine.

The Deadline to enter is Friday, August 29th. The Winner will be announced On Sunday August 31st !
One winner will receive a "Stick With Me" Pin Assortment along with your copy of the HomeSpun Magazine "Best of Needlebook" Issue. It just arrived and I am in awe of the lovely projects in it. It is much like the Stampington publications here in America. I cant wait to share it with the lucky winner.
The second winner will receive a Stick With Me Pin Assortment only.

This Giveaway is Now Closed.

There is lots to see here, so stay awhile! Sign up for my newsletter and I will let you know when I will giveaway another fun project.

Happy Sewing!

Unfortunatley, I can't enter your giveaway as I will be out of town when you announce the winners. But, I did want to take a moment to tell you how very much I enjoy your creations and tutorials! It takes one set of talents to creates something and another set to instruct. You clearly have both.

Congratulations on being published!

Miss Kitty Cat and Solo Flight are fun motifs and I really like the shape of the messenger bag.
Btw, your summer pincushion was my intro to you. A friend posted it on my Facebook page a year or so ago. She suggested I make it. I bought your blue cashmere instead.

Jill, you never cease to amaze me with your talent! Congrats on all of your accomplishments and exposure - you deserve it! I'm glad to learn about Homespun as more and more I'm inspired to do more stitching. I love the Pull up a Pew coaster Web Project because years ago my MIL taught me to do the cathedral window quilt design and I've always love it!

I liked Homespun Magazine on facebook. The projects are so beautiful. I could list all day, but I really love the " Look to the Lilies". As I was looking I saw the Kiss me Tender – Snowflake. and this would be good also to use as decorations for my Granddaughter's Frozen Birthday Party. Thanks so much for the chance.
