Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day




Hello everyone, and welcome to my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway! My name is Michelle aka Dresden Quilter. I have been quilting for over 20 years. I also have been knitting, and crocheting for longer. A few years ago I learned how to do red work and I love that as well.  Last year, I learned how to knit socks and I have grown a bit of an addiction to them. Yarn and fabric stores are both my favourites and can both be quite expensive! The people I love are my muses. I love to make things for the ones I care about. Presently, I am working on a pair of socks for my sister, a redwork table runner for myself, a quilt for my daughter, and a baby quilt for a friend.

For my giveaway I am giving away this charm pack of 42 squares of Dream On.






To enter, all you need to do is answer this question : If you could realize one dream, what would it be?

My dream would be to own a Janome Horizon, and more simply for people to be nicer to each other.

The winner will be chosen randomly and you must have a way for me to contact you. I am happy to ship internationally, from the beautiful country called Canada! I will leave the giveaway open until May 10 at 8:00 PM Eastern DST. Good luck with this and the other giveaways at Sew Mama Sew!

KD-Quilts said…
My dream is to always be able to be there when my son needs me.
My dream would be for my husband to find the job of his dreams and really feel like he's making a difference. And I'd love to be able to sew and create all day long. :)
Wow Michele, we had the same dream, but after saving for over two years, I finally purchased my Horizon named "Hazel" after my Grandma who told me I would have to unpick every stitch I sewed on Sunday, with my nose when I got to Heaven, LOL. I have loved sewing since I was a child but only discovered quilting 5 years ago. Now that I have Hazel, my dream would be to have a really nice quilting studio, with lots of shelves and cupboard space. Right now I'm in a small bedroom, but I'm not complaining, because it is my space to enjoy and like so many of us, I quilted where ever there was room to set up my sewing machine, for years. Usually in the kitchen. Hugs...
**I hope you get your Janome Horizon soon.

Skwishee said…
I actually don't know how to answer this question! I'm at that point in my life where I realise I'm not doing what I want, but still have to figure out what that might be. Although, people being nicer to each other is a dream I can get behind. :)
