One More Sleep!!!

Pardon the use of multiple exclamation marks, but I’m a tiny bit excited. And nervous. And stressed.

Because tomorrow is Sew Up North day!

Sally and I never thought this would work out as popular as it has, thank you so much to everyone who has signed up for tomorrow.  We’re both rather nervous; I am absolutely petrified of new people, so bear with me if I’m a little manic tomorrow!

Incredibly, we still haven’t got through all our sponsors yet; we have another two to announce this evening!

The ever so awesome Sewing World Magazine has donated another Prize to the Raffle! It’s a 12 month Magazine Subscription to their magazine which is worth a whopping £60.00!

Secondly we have blogger Eleanor Thompson who has donated this fantastic book together with fabric and trim to make something from it.  She’s even pre washed the fabric!


Thank you so much to both of you, it means such a lot that people are being so generous.

So our final list of raffle prizes is;

A bundle of fabric from Minerva crafts worth over £100

A magazine bundle from Love Sewing magazine

£30 voucher from Cotton Reel studio

£30 voucher from Sewisfaction

2m of any fabric from Girl Charlee

Haberdashery boxes from School of Sew

2m of fabric and a £10 voucher from the Fabbadashery

2 pdf patterns from Tilly and the Buttons

5 pdf patterns from Sew Over It

Oh Sew Quaint pattern weights from Fabricate Roberttown

£20 voucher from Beyond Measure

Book, fabric and trim from Eleanor Thompson

£20 voucher from B&M Fabrics

Magazine, 2 books, fat quarter bundles from Sewing World magazine

12 month subscription from Sewing World magazine

Mystery bundle from Sew Crafty shop

It’s all for an incredibly worthy cause, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, so bring your pennies! I will not be apologising for buying a significant number myself, a lot of these things have been sitting in my living room for some time now and I’ve managed to put everything into the raffle prize bag for tomorrow, I need the chance to bring some of it home again!

Hope you’re all ready for a great day!
