A Giveaway! No Fooling!

Sorry...this giveaway is closed.


Well, I'm not kidding around when I tell you that I have a giveaway to share with you today. Remember when I visited the Going Batty quilt shop in Reno, Nevada? That was when I saw this little travel iron caddy:


And I thought it was so stinking cute, I wanted one for my very own. So I purchased the pattern and made this one:


The pattern was so simple and the instructions were so easy to follow, I sent a picture and a note of thanks to the designers at Sisters' Common Thread. And they were so sweet they agreed to offer one of their Caddy Pad Jr. patterns (the same one I have) as a giveaway prize! Can you believe that? You can see the process I went through making it up at my post right here. It's lined with heat resistant fabric (included with the pattern). When it's opened up flat, you can use it as an ironing surface. It's such a clever and handy design, and I'm going to love having it for classes and retreats.

So now you have a chance to win one for your very own. Here's what you need to do:

1. Go to their website at Sisters' Common Thread and check out their patterns. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me what you like best.

2. Followers...new or well-seasoned...can get a second chance to win. Just leave me a second comment telling me how you follow. If you're a newby, just check out my left sidebar there for the many ways you can follow along.

Here's the rub...if you see something you like at Sisters' Common Thread, you can't purchase it from them directly. They're wholesale only. But you can purchase their patterns at Quilters Warehouse or your local quilt shop.

There's no time to waste, so don't be an April fool. This giveaway will remain open just until Monday, April 4th, 2016, when I'll announce the winner. Also, we'll ship anywhere on Planet Earth so this giveaway is open to all my friends, domestic or international. Good luck!

Wonderful giveaway. I have the pattern for the larger caddy, so please don't count me in your giveaway. But I do appreciate your inspiration and #CreativeGoodness.

I'm going to be a Great Aunt again in October, and I loved the Diaper Dock! That would be an excellent gift. And I've been needing an iron caddy for retreats and classes.

I love the mittens! Our grandsons go through so many pair in a winter losing them! I can clip them to their coats! The iron caddy would be great for sew ins and retreats! Great idea! Thanks you. P.S. Love, love, love your kitties! Laura V.

Thanks to you and Sisters' for a fun giveaway. So many great patterns. First, I love the name of one purse 'Braid Me Up, Scotty'. I would buy the pattern just because of the name. My favourite would have to be the kitty condo as I must spoil my felines.

I follow by giving myself a break and checking your blog every day around lunchtime. Even if you haven't posted anything new I still look around and reread. :)

liniecat said...

Such reasonably priced patterns only wish they were available in the UK! May have to browse around to see if I can find them.
I'd go for the Cosy Toes pattern but that Cat Condo does look fun must admit.

liniecat said...

I follow by email and hadn't sussed you were on Facebook too!

Lee Ann L. said...

Oh, that is a pretty little caddy. The kitty Condo is one I'm very interested in!

What fun! How generous of you and of them.

My nephew was just visiting, and his "snuggy" was getting pretty ragged. The Zoo Buds pattern might take care of that. Thanks for sending me in that direction; it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas crafting.

I was going to send you a note tonight, but I suppose a "comment" will do. In my AARP magazine (when did *that* happen?), I saw an app you might like: "likethatgarden" -- you take a photo of a flower with your smart phone and that app identifies it. It's available in the itunes store, and at www.likethat.com (where there are apps that will help identify all sorts of things--who knew?)

I like the Goodie Boxes pattern. Either would be a cute way of giving a gift to someone.

So, that is who makes the iron caddy pattern! I've seen it at retreats and it is usually the first give-a-way taken. I also like the the trio set and mini diaper bag for giving to new parents.
