Join the party!

To celebrate the launch of SEWN, a new Australian website chockful of information for sewers, Sarah has organised a Blog party and you're invited. The site launches on 8 June and we'll all be clicking madly to see what fabulous treats she has in store for us. Signup for the wonderful giveaways Sarah has for some lucky readers here.

Since I'm in the party spirit, I'm having a giveaway too!

This is a photo of some selvedge pincushions I made last year - you can't have these because I've already given them to friends, but I promise they'll be just as cute! I have two selvedge pincushions to give away, so leave a comment on this post and you'll go into the draw. I'll announce the lucky winners on 8 June, the day that SEWN launches, so what are you waiting for?

lindylou from oz! said...

What an excellent idea using selvedges for pincushions! I might be able to manage something that small - the umbrella and dress I saw recently at a show made completely of selvedges was completely overwhelming!! Looking forward to reading your blog and also the new SEWN one. Pls put me in the draw for one of your lovely pincushions...have a great day!

Kate said...

Hi Erica - it was great to see you at the Textile Art Festival! It was worth going back more than one day, wasn't it? So much to see!! Your giveaway is great - I'm a selvedge collector at the moment - will make something soon I hope!!

Lindi said...

What fun! The new site sounds great. Please add me, Erica, to the draw for a sweet little pincushion.

Julie said...

very cute pincushions, I have saved some selvedges, but haven't had time to make anything with them as yet

Anonymous said...

Erica,
I came on over after your SCQuilters email. That is a good way to find interesting blogs like your's. Congratulations on your new adventure. These "selvedge" pincushions and other items around on blogland are fascinating. I reckon they capture the heart of what our early quilting ancestors did - used everything they had.

Great idea for pincushions Erica. I used to throw my selvedges out but have heard people use them to tie plants in the garden, or make scrap 'balls' but this is the best.

Fiona Hammond said...

I don't really need to win one of Erica's amazing selvedge pin cushions as I bought one from her last year - and it is my favourite pin cushion! Though I'd always give another one a good home here...you can never have too many pin cushions..... They are excellent!!

cheers, Fiona

Lorraine McMahon said...

I might have to start a collection of selvedges too. They look great. However an Erica original would be a great place to start.
