Colonial Needle Sponsored Giveaway

bloghopbadgeC

Welcome to the final day of the Colonial Needle Blog Hop.  It's been a full week of giveaways.  To visit the other participating blogs, please visit Lily Pad Quilting.  It seems Padsworth bit off a little more than he could chew when he asked Colonial Needle to sponsor a giveaway.  The folks at Colonial Needle were so generous, it took a whole week of giveaways to manage all the loot!  Really!  Visit their website and feast your eyes on all the wonderful merchandise they have for those of us who love sewing in all its forms.  I have fallen in love with their "Pebbles".  I found these in a clearance bin at one of my local quilt shops some time ago and despaired about where to find them again.  Now I know!

So, thanks for visiting today.  For your trouble, I'm giving away three prize packages of some great stuff:


Each winner will receive an assortment of goodies from Colonial Needle, including a stitch ripper (not that you'd need one), a retractable measuring tape, a pack of snap fasteners, brass safety pins, and a magnet for picking up dropped needles and pins.  Also, each winner will receive a one yard cut of hollyhocks fabric.

So what do you need to do to win?  

1.  Leave a comment on this blog telling me your favorite movie of all time.

2.  Followers can leave a second comment for a second chance to win.

3.  Sign up for the newsletter at Colonial Needle, then leave a third comment letting me know.

I'll leave this giveaway open until Wednesday at midnight and announce the winners sometime Thursday, April 26, 2012.  Good luck!

My favourite movie is definitely Gone With the Wind. Only thing is, every time I watch it, I hope for a happy ending! For the same reason, I don't like Withering - maybe one day they'll make it with a happier ending?

QuiltSue said...

Uh-oh, I've just realised that I'm the first one to comment, and it's a well-known fact that no. 1 never wins. Still, I'm a follower, so this is comment no.2 - maybe that'll be luckier.

Chatty Kathy said...

Well, I guess my very favorite movie is American Graffiti. My kids gave me a DVD a few years ago and we still watch it regularly. Probably just my generational fondness for it (I was a '60s teen). Thanks for the giveaway.

I'm not sure what my favorite movie is... I don't usually watch movies over and over again but if I do, it is with my daughter (we pick something that has romance and humour).

gpc said...

I'm not sure it will be my favorite forever, but I loved Don Juan, with its message that we can make our lives more exciting and romantic if we choose to!

Gwen said...

I love movies! Choosing an all-time favorite is really difficult! :-) I think that I would probably go with "The Wizard of Oz" -- I remember the anticipation my sisters and I would experience every year when Mom would tell us that "The Wizard" would be on television that week. That was in the days before VHS or DVD-- so you only go to see it that one time per year-- and it was a BIG event at our house! :-)

Lisa Marie said...

I'm not really a movie person but there is one movie I have watched several times so I guess it would have to be called a favorite. It's "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?". So funny, and it has George Clooney, so what's not to like?

Donna F said...

My favorite movie..hmmm. I must admit I have many but if I had to choose I would guess an oldie: To Kill A Mocking Bird but I also love One Flew Over the cukoos nest.

tpott said...

My favorite movie of all time is "The Wizard of Oz". If I remember correctly it was on TV once a year Easter night. My sister and I would wait each year to watch it. The best part to me was when the door opened and everything was in color. We watched it down stairs at my Grandparents house, they had COLOR TV. I was born in 1965 color TV was still a big deal. My Grandparents had a remote control, WOW, we thought that was amazing. Sorry, I'm babbling. ;-> Toni Anne

I've used a seam ripper a LOT lately on the blocks I've been making. Ugh! My all time favorite movie would be The Sound of Music. I love to sing along at the top of my lungs. I was in the musical back in 3rd grade. I played Marta, who wants a pink parasol for her birthday. It was a blast!
