SEWN launches tomorrow!
SEWN is being launched tomorrow! I'm way late to the party, but better late than never, right? They're having TONS of giveaways, by the new site as well as a bunch of bloggers who have jumped in to help the launch. I've just spent some happy time hopping around and entering a few of the giveaway contests. Most end tonight. But since I'm late, I'm keeping my giveaway open until midnight Monday GMT. I'll post the winner on Tuesday! I'm not even really sure what I'm giving away but I promise it will be good ☺
SEWN will "have just about everything you can think of that you would want online as a sewer. There are forums, online advice from industry experts, conversion charts, colour wheels, free patterns and class listings.
There will be interviews with all your favourite designers, quilters, patterns makers and authors. There will be tutorials with me and with other sewers from here and overseas, podcasts and coverage from shows and articles about all maner of exciting things.
Best of all, there are great unique gadgets - Fabricmatcher, which is an online tool which lets you match patterns to fabrics and see what your project will look like without sewing a stitch, and Find Fabric, which is the niftiest thing that will find the fabric you are looking for without you having to search for it for hours on the internet. It's so clever it even searches shops in your vacinity first to save you on international postage. How cool is that?
Plus there will be an online buy and sell area called SEWiNg, which is where you can sell the stuff you sew to the people out there who don't sew - and some of the ones who do :)"
To enter my giveaway, just leave a comment. If you've made it all the way to the end you'll be too tired to do more than that! At last count there were over 150 bloggers linked up! Party on!
