Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!

Woohoo! Today's the day! It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! As always, I'm jumping on the giveaway train. After you're done here, you'll want to jump on over to the Sew Mama Sew blog & see what else is up for grabs. I certainly plan to! I haven't won anything the last two go arounds, so maybe this time I'll get lucky. There's always a ton of fun goodies to be had.
 This year, I'm so excited to be able to offer you up a copy of the new Craft it Now book by F&W Publishing. As you can read here, I'm so honored to be included as a contributor to this fun book. (page 32 to be precise!) If you want, I'll even sign the book for the winner. Not that my signature is worth a dime! HA! in fact, if you'd rather I not mess the book up with my autograph, I'll be happy to oblige.
There will be some extra handmade crafty goodies added to the package you win! But how do I win this awesome prize, you ask? A great question! Just leave me a comment below telling me who first instilled the love of crafting in you.... make sure I have your email! If you are a no reply commenter and you don't leave me your email address I'll have to draw another name. That would be so sad! I'll draw a winner at the end of the day this Friday, May 16.  If you are a follower of my blog (old or new!) leave a second comment for a second chance to win. I'll be happy to ship worldwide.

So what are you waiting for? Comment away!
Comments are now closed. Giveaway has ended. thanks for stopping by!

Eeeek - an autograph would be perfect!!! My mom and dad got me crafting - mom knit and sewed and dad was a woodworker. Nana crosstitched, Granny did crochet, auntie did LOTS and LOTS of macrame (it was the 70's afterall) but I am the only quilter in the family!

Mindy Hardwick said...

This would be a great book! I participate in a lot of blog hops as an author and am always looking for new ideas to add to my book giveaways. My Brownie Troop installed the first love of crafting in me--and it was led by my Mom!

PK Sews said...

Congratulations on being included in a book! Your blog is delightful. My Home Ec teacher inspired me to learn knitting and sewing. Thanks for the fun!

Trae Flesher said...

Even though Mom (needlework), MeMa (painting), and PaPa (trash-to-treasure king) had projects for me at an early age it was the babysitter that actually got me started! I was staying the weekend with her. We went to T.G. &Y (dimestore) and I got to pick out a skein of yarn (turquiose blue) and a crochet hook. She taught me to chain first and I made some hair ties. Then, the wonderful world of granny squares! I had a shoebox full by the time mom picked me up on Sunday!

Trae Flesher said...

My Dad and his mother were pretty crafty as well. My last 'learn from family' craft experience was with my dad - he taught me the basics of working with stained glass. It's a week that I will never forget!

Courtney said...

Had to be my mom who got me hooked on crafting/sewing. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Jules said...

My EX-boyfriend (eek!) 5 years ago when he bought me a cricut for my birthday. Who knew scrapbooking would lead to baking/cookie decorating and now quilting! Thanks for the chance!

Lori said...

how wonderful, I love autographs. My mom started me early on with crafts. Everything she could think of. And if she didn't know one we would learn together. This went on until she got cancer. Then we just had fun with what we had done in the past.

monica sisk said...

I suppose it would have to be my great grandmother. She taught me to crochet, embroider, quilt and do the plastic canvas stuff. She was a really unique lady.

Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy said...

Hmm... that's a tough one. No one in my family is really crafty. My dad is really good with his hands (he built our barn) but no one really sewed!

Alexis said...

I spent a lot of time by myself as a kid, and discovered on my own that I loved crafting. So... I guess I inspired myself? (That sounds weird.) No one else in my family is particularly crafty.

Cheri, the Quilting Nanny said...

My mom was the one that started me crafting. She started with sewing and then taught me all her crafts and I picked some up of my own. My grand mother taught me crochet. Best thing that ever happened to me was to become a hand crafter!

I would have to say I learned to like crafting when I was in school! My teachers always had some little thing for us to make. Thank you to the teachers!

Jess said...

My gram introduced me to quilting when I was really young. My mum helped me make doll clothes while I was in grade school. A friend during high school tried really hard to teach me how to knit properly. I guess I owe it to a lot of people. :)

Wendy said...

Congrats on being published! I think my mum started me crafting as she was always sewing or doing tapestry when I was young,.

Jen said...

My aunt got me started sewing as a kid and I've been sewing ever since (but especially in the last 3 years).

Elizabeth said...

I've always liked arts and crafts, though my mom made me a ladybug costume for Halloween. I have made so many costumes for myself since!

My mother knitted and sewed, but she wasn't very creative. It was my grandmother who passed on the creative gene to me. I've passed it on to at least one of my daughters, and a few of my granddaughters.

Must have been my mother because I don't remember a time when I didn't like to sew or do handwork. Thanks.

My mum taught me at least the basics of almost everything crafty I do!

Susan Solberg said...

My mother in law refused to continue hemming my fiance's pants, so we had to get a sewing machine. And the rest was history... LOL. My mom & grandma are sewers, but more so since I have been crafting than prior

Welcome to the Glorious Chaos! said...

My Grandfather was an art teacher and we always had our own crafting counter growing up and our creativeness was always encouraged. My Grandmother was the one who taught me to sew, she is an amazing seamstress who still sews on her single stitch machine and it's incredible!

Emily C said...

My mother taught my embroidery to keep my fingers occupied.

OhioLori said...

I'm pretty much self taught really...tho now have my two daughters to learn with..we are learning quilting together (sooo fun!!)....and I have a BFF that I have learned to knit from, and we crochet together.

I would be honored to have your autograph in the book...how exciting!!!

Oddly enough my daughter inspired me. I guess when I was nesting while pregnant with her she was nudging me to create things for her. Little dresses, quilts, diaper bags...urges I have never had before haha

I started sewing when I was 5 or 6. I'm not sure who inspired me but I guess it must have been my mother. She had a sewing machine but didn't sew very often.

Stephanie said...

I started on my sewing journey during my first pregnancy. I wanted to be able to sew sew things for him. Since then I have learned A LOT! I have enjoyed sewing quilts, toys, etc. for each of my kids... as well as many other things for myself and as gifts.

Jerri said...

My kids. I would have never pegged myself as crafty at all until they came along and I started crafting with them. Now, I craft without them.

rosewendy said...

I'm not sure how I got to love all things arty and crafty. It just seems to be what I do. I do remember greatly admiring my grand mother's knitting. She knitted for all the family and was so skillful and perfectly neat. Wonderful.

Hazel Pepper said...

My Mum first taught me to sew, I made clothes for my doll. since then my God mother (who made my wedding dress) and my sister-in-law (who makes bouncy castles) both inspire and encourage me. and they tell me where I went wrong too!

Lee said...

Thank you for the giveaway! My mom painted and did some sewing and my great grandmothers lived with us and she was a quilter! They both were an inspiration to me. thank you!

Michell said...

A neighbout did. We use to go over and she taught us how to sew

Arianna M. said...

I'm not really sure who got me started crafting. My grandmother knits and my other grandmother has a sewing machine that she rarely uses, and that's about it for crafters in my family. I think my mom takes the "blame" because she never ironed on my AWANA patches when I was little, so I got fed up waiting and taught myself how to sew them on :).

Toohey said...

Of course it was my mother who got me crafting and sewing. She was the art teacher's aide at my elementary school and we were always collecting egg crates and pipe cleaners for some project. Thanks for the giveaway!

Cath said...

My mum was an excellent seamstress....she worked for Bernina and gave sewing lessons. I was never interested in sewing clothes but always fancied making a quilt and 15 years ago I took the plunge into quiltmaking. It thrills me that my mum is so proud of the quilts that I have made.

ps.....I would love you to sign the book if I won it.

It would have to be a quilting shop nearby. I always wanted to make a quilt but didn't know how to even begin.

Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway and giving me the chance to become a winner of this fantastic book.

Brooke said...

It was probably my Mom. She would let me stitch together some awful looking things! She taught me to use the sewing machine, and found a crochet hook for me when the 4-H leader taught us to crochet. My Grandmas were also a bit of an inspiration even though they never taught me anything. I saw the things they made and wanted to do the same. I wish I could have learned from them!

Autograph would be great. I can't really say who instilled crafting in me. I do know it's in my blood now. Thanks for the chance to win.

PersimonDreams said...

I'm pretty sure it was in my blood. I have been creating for as long as I can remember. When I was four I hand sewed my brother a quilt from my mom's rag bin - including the furry toilet seat cover! Thanks for the chance to wiN!

My dad was my first inspiration. He's an architect and was always bringing home carpet samples, tile samples, paint chips, etc that we were allowed to cut up, break, glue and create with. :D

LethargicLass said...

Autographs are always awesome :) I don't know that anyone person inspired me... I was always just fascinated that people could make things, all sorts of things, with their hands... woodworking, pottery, quilting, all of it!

Great giveaway. My mother started me with crafts to keep me out of her hair when I was little. Thanks so much for sharing

She is a huge supporter of my crafting.

Sally said...

I think that my mom definitely gave me her love of crafting. With 4 children, I'm not sure she had a ton of time for much, but when I was young, she sewed me a lot of clothes. I remember in 5th or 6th grade, she sewed me this dress from a plaid fabric and she got the plaids to match up, too! Oh, and she could draw, too… One time, there were these home parties going around and you would buy these paints of some sort, to paint on clothes. She made me the best sweatshirt with this swan swimming on a lake painted on the front :)

We still like to craft together when we can.

Jodi said...

My mum is my creative inspiration and her mum was hers. So glad both Mum and Grandma had the creative bug and passed it on. I would love you to Autograph the book if I win.

Robin said...

I know that I was just born with a crafting gene. Honestly no one else in my family loves to craft like I do. Even extending out to cousins and aunts and on both sides! It's really quite odd!!!!

MrsV said...

Probably a toss up between my mom and my gramma. My dad also taught me the value of doing things for yourself (but that was more along the lines of fixing the toilet or making a shelf) - but I think that gets to the heart of crafting.

Ashley said...

I guess my friends instilled my love of crafting. Evn as little girls, we were always creating something.

i got into sewing via a friend who encouraged me to make a baby quilt when i got pregnant with my daughter. i worked on a bit while i was pregnant but didn't really catch the bug until my baby was six months old. that's when i finally finished the quilt & was like, "hold on...sewing is awesome!" & i haven't stopped since!
