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!

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  43. 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! :-)

  113. 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
