    Hi Hollie,

    I received my gift, the Seam Allowance Guide, in the mail today. I can’t wait to use it. As soon as I write about it in my blog, I will send you the link for your reference.

    Thank you again for the lovely gift. I’m quite sure this will be one of the sewing accessories I can not live without.

    oh and your question – sewing for $$$ ? A girl at work is pregnant and had some material and wanted a simple stretchy skirt. So, just by word of mouth, at work. It’s a good feeling to help someone out like that (and the $ didn’t hurt, either)

    Yes, we’re on for the 12th. Here is the url to the bit about having to link to fb I agree it’s not in the other rules page for the comp (very confusing!) but better safe than sorry.

    And you’re right, there might be rules about no handouts – I’m checking out their site now. I would like to use the font stitch on my sewing machine to write my blog url on fabric samples, and leave them lying about (if not thrust into people’s hands). Chat soon lovely!

    Yes! Yes! I am also going to hand out some teasers for my blog (if I’ve got enough game!). Would u like to hand out fliers for your gadget, too?

    Also, also… I was just snooping on the fiskars facebook page. I only just realised you need to ‘like’ it and then post a link to your burda technique on their wall to enter the comp properly. Did you post a link to your technique on the fiskars facebook page? I don’t want you to miss out!

      ooh i didnt see that bit!!!

      are you sure?
      i dont even have a facebok page.

    • Holliebell_large

      Thats a great suggestion!
      I hadnt even thought about that.

      They may have rules though, you normally have to pay to hand things out.

      I dont think you do actually have to link on their page?? I did anyway uisng my ex’s account.

      Mabe we could do a joint flyer. Passh’s Blog sponsored by Seam Allowance Guide.

      How many followers do you have?

      So me you 12th?

    oh, no…. ! I recently had a lull in my sewing. I think creativity ebbs and flows. You’ve been through a BIG move. Take it easy. And look forward to the success of your coming sewing gadget!

      exactly what I was thinking.
      He’s lucky I can sew cause when he’s 18, 6"2’ with brad shoulders it’s going to be impossible for him to find a dress that fits,

    How is the Sean Skirt coming along? I want to try it eventually but scared it may turn out looking like a multi-layered tutu.

      I’m using really light weight chiffon so very tricky to sew. Coming along ok I suppose. Not as good as I hoped. Had to make some changes.

      Try it with lightweight stuff?

    Hi there, I noticed you also live in Perth.. It sounds like you are short on time, but if you ever want a sewing buddy then that would be great. :) I live in Fremantle..

      Ha! Well I understand why MINE didn’t get into the top ten, but I really think YOURS should have been!

      I love it anyway, and I hope that you get to wear it someplace really special! You should be proud!
