KWIK SEW / STELLA knit Give-away!

Did you catch our exciting news earlier in the week? Crafty Mamas is now stocking the fabulous KWIK SEW pattern range ( including books!). 

The KWIK SEW range is huge, with about 800 patterns on offer. Whilst we get busy adding them to the store- you can order any of the patterns or books, simply drop me an email with the pattern number.lisaATcraftymamasDOTcomDOTau







KWIK SEW and Crafty Mamas is a match made in heaven. Why? KWIK SEW are experts at producing patterns- in particular, their knit wear patterns are fabulous. And of course, Crafty Mamas has the best range of quality ( and fun!) knit fabrics! Beautiful knits from European designers such as Hilco, Stenzo and smaller indie designers like CeTho, JNY Designs, Gekko, Lilofant and of course, our famous Aussie made knits too! ( keep an eye out for our own knits coming soon...)

Our family has a long history with KWIK SEW, as my parents stocked and ran KWIK SEW classes in their sewing store many years ago ( I feel old now!). They are brilliant for beginners and experienced sewists, so are the perfect addition to Crafty Mamas.

So onto our GIVE-AWAY! 

I have a lovely KWIK SEW/FABRIC Give-away for one lucky blogger. It consists of:


2 KWIK SEW patterns of your choice
2m of STELLA knit, of your choice
1 packet of 5 stretch sewing machine needles

Now that ought to make someone very happy!

To enter, simply leave me a comment as to why you would love to win this prize!

I'll draw a winner next Friday 8th July!

Good Luck!

Lisa

Ooh, I would love to win this! I've used a couple of Kwik Sew patterns in the past and they have been fabulous! I'm just learning about sewing with knits, and while I'm becoming more confident with kids' clothes, this prize would really help me get going with some clothes for myself. Thanks for entering me in the draw :-)

What a great prize idea!! I am not new to using quick sew patterns but would love the opportunity to win as I am just craving getting back to being creative... You see we have introduced a beautiful baby girl to the family just four months ago after an 11 year gap. She has definately kept me busy but I think it is time to return to the sewing machine!!

Wow what a cool giveaway! I have worked with a couple of kwik sew patterns and find them very easy to work with. This would be great to get the sewing mojo working again! Count me in, thanks!

I would love to win this - I spend all my time (and money) sewing for the little ones in my life - its about time I made something for myself! This would be a fantastic kick start! :)

Carla said...

I've not used Kwik Sew Pattern yet, maybe I'm too young (who am I kidding LOL!!!) but would love to give them a try. I've got so much knit fabric and love my Ottos but it would be nice to do a bit more sewing for myself.

Sair said...

I would love to win this great prize, I haven't yet seen any of your stunning fabrics and its about time I made something great for me. I love my overlocker and I hope that the kwik -sew patterns need little adjustments, cause it'd be great to just cut sew and wear. Thanks Crafty Mamas!

Just started to make my own clothes again after retirement. Enjoying Kwiksew patterns as they are foolproof and easy and up to date. Perfect with good quality knits such as Stella.
