All this week we’re celebrating the 100th issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine which was published for the very first time in February 2011, such a very long time ago now. Back then the magazine was a very slender publication, with just a few patterns and sewing-related articles. Today it’s much more wide-ranging, as we like to share with our readers everything we love about life here in the English countryside – with sewing very much at its heart of course. We also include not two or three but SIX Bustle & Sew patterns every month too. Even though the first issues were rather slimmer than today, we think we must have published at least around 400 patterns over the last 8 years!
Indeed, I wonder how many yards (or metres) of floss I’ve stitched, how many hoops I’ve used as well as felt, cotton, linen and toy stuffing! I don’t think I’m going to spend time working it all out though – I think it would be a nearly impossible task. But what I am going to do is offer one lucky blog reader the opportunity to win EVERY issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine we’ve ever published!
Please be aware though that this is a digital publication, so if you don’t like reading magazines on your device then it may not be the prize for you. Still keen? Then for your chance to win a copy of EVERY Bustle & Sew Magazine published please leave a comment below, and just for fun tell us what is your all time favourite Bustle & Sew pattern and why. The winner will be chosen by random selection and will be notified by Wednesday 1 May. The competition is open to everyone, wherever you may live.
