Bustle & Sew Magazine: Super Special Giveaway

It’s Friday … the very best night of the week! When I was younger Friday night was always going-out night, and I remember many happy times spent around Warwick, where I grew up, and Southsea on the south coast of England where I spent many years happily living in a tall Victorian villa in the centre of town.  But Friday nights can also be a great time to stay in, snuggled up on the sofa enjoying a good book or magazine, and maybe planning some weekend stitching.

If you’re looking for a publication that’s a good read, and also has lots of great (in my opinion anyway!) stitching projects, then you might like to try the Bustle & Sew Magazine.  It’s not your usual sewing magazine as it carries no advertising at all – every page is full of great content.  It’s put together by all of us here at Bustle & Sew and is a celebration of everything we love about life … stitching of course takes centre stage, but inside you’ll also discover recipes, interviews, nature notes, gardening and more besides.  And now we’re giving one lucky person the chance to win an annual subscription to our magazine – AND a craft kit too!

mandala and unicorn

The winner can choose from either our Unicorn Trophy Head or Festival Mandala kits and we will post anywhere in the world.  Rosie’s put together a very snazzy entry form and there are lots of ways to enter  – just choose the options that suit you best from the form below.

Good luck everyone!

Win an annual subscription to Bustle & Sew Magazine AND a craft kit!

I am working on a pinwheel quilt for my daughter (trying to finish before she decides she doesn’t like the fabrics anymore!). Hoping to get some back to school sewing in soon too!

It’s an incredibly hot and sweaty 95 degree day here in New York. If Daisy were here, I’m sure she would be begging to be taken for a swim at the beach.
I enjoy your patterns, especially the stuffed animals and mounted animal heads.

I have a crochet baby afghan on the go, as well as a baby quilt to put together. And…I started to cross stitch some Christmas ornaments.

What a nice thing you are doing with the give-away. Someone will be very pleased with this win. I was happy to hear that Rosie is back at work. I am sure you missed her tremendously. And now you even have another “helper”. Once he starts walking around you will be in trouble.
