One of the people in this photo has a birthday today…
It’s my birthday! It’s also Valentine’s Day. I’ve always had an ambivalent relationship with this calendar day. On one level, the world is in a good mood on the day I was born. Good times! On another level, I’m like, Yeah, but when you’ve finished with that over-priced meal … my birthday? Bad times.
Fortunately, in 2018 we all have a bit more ownership over the shape of our lives. Enter, Galentine’s Day! Inspired by a scene in Sisters, the premise is that we can subvert this day of cod romance to celebrate the most meaningful relationships in our lives – our female friends.
In honour of this, Annie of The Village Haberdashery has kindly supplied a Galentine Giveaway to help us all have fun with our friends.
A person could win:
- a copy of The Deer And Doe Robe Centauree pattern
- 2 metres of beautiful Lady McElroy cotton lawn: Feather Palm in Blush (prettiest name ever?)
As Annie said: ‘Sundress goals!’ (God, aren’t we all over winter?)
But there’s A TWIST to this giveaway.
You need to nominate a friend to win.
That’s right. Nominating someone else to score fabric and pattern? Only a Sewist could be that kind. Just leave a comment below telling me which friend you would like to win. When I pull a name out of the hat, I’ll drop you an email and you can supply your friend’s postal address.
So, knock yourself out. Throw a friend’s hat in the ring. Then tell her you love her. It’ll be the best thing you do all day.
This giveaway closes at midnight GMT on Saturday 17 February. It is open worldwide.
And if that’s all just too much largesse for one day, allow me to recommend new Sewing Social weekly get-together at The Village Haberdashery. With sewing machines supplied in their gorgeous workshop, all you have to do is turn up and sew with friends. Such a great concept! I’m definitely going – shall you?
