Lucky number seven (aka -- giveaway winner!!)

I rolled my magic purple ten-sider to find a winner for the 1930s-themed giveaway, and came up with a winner.  Actually, the first time it rolled a zero (aka, a ten) -- the one number that wasn't assigned to a commenter.  So maybe it ain't so magical.  But on the second roll, it came through for me with a seven, and that's ...

Marie, I just checked my old emails and I still have your address from the last round of give-aways -- let me know if I should use some other address instead.   I'll get the book in the mail to you early next week.  I hope you find it useful, and I look forward to seeing what you make with it!

I enjoyed reading everyone's reasons for sewing vintage.  I'm still trying to figure out my own answer to that question.   I don't have much in the way of personal style, and am kind of a sloppy dresser most of the time.   I certainly don't aspire to a vintage lifestyle.   I do like "old stuff", though, and always have ... not sure why!   Plus, I always was (and continue to be) the kind of kid who pined for the 64-count box of Crayolas.   And later, when the 96-count box appeared, I had to have that too.  Together, these things may go some way towards explaining my vintage pattern collection.   As for the rest, maybe I'll figure it out if I keep on sewing!


  1. Oh my gosh, I'm so shocked to see my name! I genuinely never win stuff! Last giveaway you did, I was literally the only person to have requested those patterns.

    I'm so, so grateful Andrea. Thank you so much, what a beautiful giveaway!

    My address is the same one that you have and I will make sure to let you know what I make from it/use it for!

    You are one generous lady ;o)

  2. I'm glad to see the book go to a good home! :D Hopefully it'll be fun to use.

  3. Just letting you know that I received the book - it was waiting for me when I got back from my holiday! It's wonderful!xx
