Sew Mama Sew Give-away



It's giveaway week at Sew Mama Sew blog.  Blog giveaways are great fun.  It's a quick and fast way to meet new bloggers and discover new blogs.  If this is your first visit to my blog, WELCOME!  I've been on a bit of a blog holiday and hope to quickly get back to regular blogging.  Dear hubby and I have recently moved to the northeast corner of the state of Georgia.  We have a new Hometown. We are exploring the area, taking in new events, and meeting new folks. To celebrate our new Hometown, my giveaway includes two charm packs of  HOMETOWN by Sweetwater for Moda.  


Charm packs lend themselves to lots of projects. One of my favorite projects for charm pack  is the Schnibbles patterns by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.   This weekend has been cold and rainy. The Schnibble pattern  Winter White seemed the perfect pattern for Hometown and the weather in my new hometown.



To enter the giveaway, leave a comment  telling me the name of your hometown and something about it.  For a second chance, leave an additional comment  about  your favorite Christmas movie.   Giveaway will end on Friday, December 13th.  The winner will be notified by email on Saturday , December 14th. International entries are welcome.

Visit the giveaway page at Sew Mama Sew. There are two categories of giveaways, supplies  and handmade items.  Good luck and enjoy visiting the many, many blogs!
