Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day



Welcome if you're visiting to the first time, and hello to my regulars.  It's give away time over at Sew Mama Sew and I jumped at the chance to join in on the fun.  Since it's my birthday next week I wanted to celebrate with my readers by offering up these goodies.



I'm going to be giving away two prizes.  Both packs contain a fabric range that doesn't really need any introduction - Good Folks!  The reason I have decided to share this coveted fabric range with you is that the Good Folks Gods have been shining down on me lately and I have managed to acquire the last few prints to finish off my collection.  Happy dance!!


Prize 1:





Three fat eighths of Good Folks prints in my favourite colour pink.

Ric Rac owl embroidery panel

Two sets of vintage style buttons

Purse Frame Bag 8.5"x7" lined in dupion silk (handmade by me!).  
You can use it to store your notions or add a little chain and use it as an evening bag.



Prize 2:






Good Folks Fortune in Sea (12"x22") with matching zip & Gutterman thread

Make It Perfect - Versatile Wrap Skirt Pattern

Monaluna Shopping Tote 17"x14" by Green Bag Lady



HOW TO ENTER:

1.  Leave a comment below letting me know what sewing machine you use and whether you would buy it again.

2.   Leave a 2nd comment if you are or become a follower via Google Friend Connect, stating as such

3.   Leave a 3rd comment if you are or become a follower of me on Twitter (@DoloresALOL), stating as such

Remember to leave an email address or make sure you have one on your Google profile so that I can contact you if you are the winner.  

This competition is open to everyone internationally and will be open until May 25th, 5pm PST at which time two winners will be drawn randomly - the first drawn will win Prize 1, the second will win Prize 2.  The winners will be notified by email and announced on this post.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

EDITED TO ADD THE WINNERS:

Draw 1/Prize 1:



Draw 2/Prize 2:



Congratulations to:

No. 16 Michaela &

  1. I use a brother xr-7700 and I would buy it again :)

  2. 15 Years ago I bought my original Kenmore. When the mother board went out I bought the exact same machine with a couple extra bells and whistles.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I have a singer quantum that I bought 7 years ago. It's a good enough machine, but I'd not buy it again though. There's not enough room for quilting anything bigger than toddler size quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I use a Janome 6600 and if I could buy again I would buy it, or perhaps something that costs even more! (If I am imagining being in the market for a new machine I'm going to imagine big and imagine money is no object!) I would maybe buy a Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen. I think that machine and I are friends. Never met, but destined for each other I think!

  5. I have a Juki...and I love it! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Have a very happy birthday week! I have a Janome 4120QDC and I love it beyond love it. Its name is Oscar.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great give-away!
    I have a vintage Sterling machine and no thoughts of replacing it. It's just wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I use a Brother XL-2220, it's been great as a basic machine, but I am thinking of upgrading to something with a few more bells and whistles.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I honestly cannot remember what type my main sewing machine is! I've had it about 6 years, but the branding has long since worn off. It's an E-somethingsomething I think... If and when it needs replacing I would definitely get another, it's been fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I use a Bernina Bernette 66 and I would definitely buy her again! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I use a 35yr old Singer 4032 that I snagged from my mom after she bought a fancy new Bernina. I love the Singer. It runs like a dream, has plenty of stitch options and the saying is true..."they don't make them like they used to". If I needed a new machine and found one in good condition I would absolutely pick up the same machine in a heartbeat!

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  14. I use a Toyota quilt 50, it's good, but the quilting guide doesn't fit on the walking foot, stupid!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have my mothers's old Husqvarna .... I have no idea what the model is .... I think it was her 21st present so it's probably about 45 years old now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fab give away! I have a Bernina Activa Patchwork edition and I love her to bits! Bit pricey but well worth it.

  17. I have a Singer 8280. It works fine for easy patchwork and simple sewing, like skirts. It's not good for quilting, so I might end up buying another machine as soon as I save up enough money!

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I own a brother and if I upgraded I would get another Brother

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have a Janome DKL603 and I would definitely buy it again. It does all I ask of it and more. It's a great SEWING machine. It doesn't do fancy stitches or embroidery but it does everything else very well.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't use a machine! I do all my sewing by hand so far. If I get into quilting, though, I suppose I'll have to get one. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have an Elna quilters dream, 12 years old. Would def buy it again. Never a problem (one lightbulb replacement only!)

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I LOVE Good Folks! I use a simple Elna. I wouldn't get it again, but it does me for now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I use my mom's old Kenmore and it's working great. She has a Baby Lock Quest and even though it's also doing a great job, when I buy a new machine, I'll probably not buy this one !

    Thanks for those two chances !
    I wish Mendocino gods would shine on me lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have a Bernina 150 and yes, oh yes, I'd buy it again! :) Thanks for a chance at such great prizes!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a basic Brother, and I would eventually like to upgrade, but I'm happy pretty happy with it now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. i have a brother, basic machine but i'm super happy for now with its capabilities!

    ReplyDelete
  27. im a follower with bloglovin

    ReplyDelete
  28. I use a 'vintage' Kenmore, it's a hand me down so I didn't buy it at all, but it's a workhorse and it suits my needs for now. Some day I'll upgrade :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Good morning! I have a Viking 500 from 1995. I love it! It has been a true work horse and I've never had it in the shop (knock on wood). I'd hate to give it up, but if I did, I think I'd like to try some other brand, just to see if there is a true difference. I think most of the machine are good ones these days.

  32. I use a Brother I got last year for Christmas. I have a certain fondness for it but the next time I buy I am upgrading. It gets through what it needs to, trudges along and takes lots of abuse, I would like more bells and whistles though :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I use a husqvarna emerald and I would get it again - it's sooo easy to use and I haven't had any trouble with it at all - and elastic thread can be machine wound :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have a Pfaff Creative Vision 5.0, would definitely buy again, or at least the new version - the Sensation :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have a Brother 2600i.
    I would buy it again for another beginner (my daughter maybe) if mine broke... But I would not buy another one for me. I would want my next machine to have more options and feed dogs that I can drop!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have a simple Kenmore and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I sprang for a Bernina 430 last summer and I haven't regretted it for a second. I love the feet and the stitch quality. Hopefully I will be around a good long time to sew on it and get my money's worth!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. i use a brother cs-6000i. i like it very well, and it was in my price range... i've recommended it to others!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a vintage Viking 19e which I adore and would buy again, and sort of did, because I also have a Viking 21a which is the same thing but with a few decorative stitches! It's a beautiful retro shape and green.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have a Simplicity Quilter's Classic SW240. I like how many attachments it came with(especially for the price), but I don't think I would buy it again because of constant tension issues, even at the shop after they repaired it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have a Viking. It is my second Viking, plus I have their serger. So yes, I would buy a Viking again.

  45. My new machine is a Bernina 350PE and yes, so far, I'm happy with it. I got it in March of 2012. The brand was highly recommended and they were having a good sale.

    Thanks for a chance to win a lovely prize.

  47. I use a Singer Simplicity and I love it. I'd definitely buy it or another Singer model again; I've liked it much more than the Brother I had before.

    Thanks for the fab giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I used a Viking Emerald and love it! I would definitely buy it again. It was a great starter machine, and has been working hard with me on quilt after quilt for the past 7 years. It sees some action most days and has never given me a single hiccough

    ReplyDelete
  58. I use a machine by White that my mom got cheap at Joanns more than a decade ago. It works fine, but if I was to get a new machine, I would choose one that can do a little more.

    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I have a Brother cs6000i. I'd probably buy it again - For the number of features and accessories that come with it, it really comes at a good price (it's ALWAYS on sale through Amazon!), which right now is the most important "feature" a machine could have, haha! Thanks for the chance to win - love that wrap pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I use a really old Singer that I inherited from my Gram - not a bad machine but I probably wouldn't buy another old one!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I have a Pfaff Expression 2.0 and I'd buy one again (not that I bought the first one - it was a very generous gift from my Dad!). It's served me very well so far for making quilts and clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  65. this is great! :)

    i have a euro pro. he works well for being so cheap and portable, but if i could get a better/more expensive machine, i would!

  66. I have a Brother sewing machine and a Brother serger, bot of which I would buy again. They were not too expensive, but sew (and serge) well and do everything I need them to. :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I have a Janome that is actually a refurbished Kenmore. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it works for a basic machine. I'm looking for something a bit fancier to be able to free motion quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have a Bernette, basic machine but works great!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have a basic Kenmore. It was great for when I was just starting out, now, I need something much better!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have two: a Singer Overlock and the Privileg Superstar Deluxe (don't know why Deluxe, guess it was at that time, now it would be just a normal sewing mashine:D). I got both mashines from my mom and they're doing a good job until now. I think I would take them also when I have to buy them.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. I use a cheap Brother machine and would never buy it again - it is impossible to get the thread tension correct.

  84. I use a 25-year-old Kenmore. I don't think I could buy it again if I wanted to. I do know that I wouldn't buy a machine that is all computerized--I love the simplicity of my old workhorse. And, may I say that I am extremely jealous of your Good Folks stash. I was late to the party and totally missed out.

  136. I love the fabrics in the second prize package! I use a Janome DC4030PR only since Christmas but I love it so far. I sew mainly clothes and home decor but would like to learn to quilt eventually. Thank you for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  137. So I started with a Brother CS-6000i which for the price got really good reviews, but I had to return 2 of them for bobbin issues. And since I still did not have a lot of money but did want a cheap amazon or walmart machine I decided to get a nicer used machine. I found an Elna 3007, which is working real well for me, only thing I would change is having automatic memorized needle down. Im going crazy without that. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have a Kenmore that is pretty much Janome made from what I understand. Very solid and no complaints as my mother got it from the thrift store and it has been great so far. Of course, eyeing the Bernina and just sewed like a dream.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Thank you for this giveaway. I have 4 machines - Brother overlocker (hardly use), a second Bernina 1130, a brand new Bernina 630 and a combo embroidery and sewing machine, Brother Innovis 4000. I bought 1130 used 13 years ago because I could not justify to my husband a new machine. After 13 years of hard work and still going strong, I finally convinced my husband that a brand new Bernina is the way to go. The combo machine is also a great machine as it is very user friendly. I used it for machine embroidery only.

    God Bless

  143. I'm a die hard Pfaff lover:-) My best machine is an old Pfaff (30 or 40 y.o) and I purchased it used 20 years ago. It is a work horse and still going strong. I started looking at new machines lately and I'm convinced Pfaff is the way to go this time too. I looked at many others but just haven't been impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I have a basic Brother machine (not even sure of the model) and if I had to do it again, I'd buy a machine more designed for quilting.

    I use a Janome DXL603 which is fine, but I'm finding I'd like more bells and whistles! Even just a better seam with overcasting....
    I'd still like to get my old Singers working properly again too.

  157. Wow great giveaway! I love the owl - would look so cute embroidered on pillow!! I have a Toyota from the tip/dump that friends gave to me reconditioned as a birthday gift. As much as I love it I would prefer something more fancy!

  158. I love my Janome MC 3500 - though I would often like it to be a bit bigger to fit a quilt under. I also have my Grandmothers Professional Elna machine that I would one day like to attempt to use but it looks so scary!

  159. I had to leave behind my Janome when I moved across the Atlantic and couldn't afford to buy it again :(. I do love my John Lewis machine though-it's a great beginner machine, just sometimes I miss one step buttonholing, drop foot feature and the range of decorative stitches...

  163. I have quite an old Janome, and I would definitley get it again. I've also used a newer version that belonged to my friend, and it was nice too.

  164. I have a Babylock Ellure. Does embroidery and sewing. A good middle of the line machine for the money. If I would buy another machine, I would go for something made with more metal and better lighting.

  166. I have a brother LB6800 and I love it I would certainly buy it again the only thing I'd change is for it to have a larger embroidery field.

  167. I have a Brother CS6000i which I do like but I'm not sure I'd purchase again...I've already had some trouble with the quality of the parts :/

  168. I use a husqvarna Viking Sapphire 875 quilt machine. It doesn't stitch as flawlessly as I'd like (for the $$) so I don't think I'd purchase it again!

  169. I have a Pfaff 2056 - but it's 8+ years old and I couldn't buy it again if I wanted to! I was admiring a $3000 Elna last weekend at the sewing expo, though. Love the blue colorway!

  172. Such a great giveaway! Thank you for the chance!! I have an Elna Quilter's Dream, it was a hand-me-down from my husband's aunt (who taught me how to quilt). I don't know if I could ever afford to buy one (I hear Elna's are $$$), but if I could I would definitely buy another one. Hopefully this one lasts me forever though. Knock on wood! ;)

  173. I have an older machine but I really like it - a New Home (Janome) Memorycraft. If they make their machines now like they did then it's very sturdy and has required only routine maintenance in 20 years. Thanks for a terrific giveaway!

  174. I have a Pfaff 7570 that I got from my grandma and I love it!

  175. I sew on a Husqvarna Lily and I wouldn't but it again simply because the walking foot is so difficult to get on and off!

  176. I used a featherweight by my mum and I think i can't find any similar sewing machine like this.
