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!
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!
Fantastic prizes – fingers crossed xx

Still working on our house that the tree fell on!! No sewing or anything fun right now! It was my sewing room and the laundry room that was damaged!!!
Thanks Helen for a wonderful giveaway!! I love your Magazine, I have most all of your Patterns, and I have ordered 3 of your Kits!! I have made some of your Mice and other goodies 🙂 Love them and so easy to make!
