Today we are kicking off a month long series here on Simple Simon and Company called “What I Wish I Knew When I Started Sewing”.
And because we are really excited…and because we like you…and because we just plain old felt like it we are going to start out with a little giveaway! (A mini starter kit if you are new to sewing or a refresher kit if you’ve already been around the sewing block a few times.) Here’s what it includes: a pair of scissors, a rotary cutter, a measuring tape, a box of pins, a fat quarter bundle, and a mystery gift.
Sooooo…if you’d like to enter leave us a comment telling us what you wish you knew when you started sewing OR what you’d like to know before you begin to sew. (And if you’d like an extra entry like us on facebook and then leave us a comment telling us that you like us…because we like when people like us, it makes us feel loved. 🙂
Now, as for this series…it officially begins today and will be filled with sewing tutorials, videos, tips, and tricks. Along with daily advice from some of your favorite seamstresses around blog. (Who will also all be donating a favorite sewing item into a pile that will become a giant giveaway of awesomeness at the end of this month!)
It’s going to be fun and we can’t wait to get started!
So let’s begin with some advice from one of my absolutely favorite ladies in the blogosphere: Kimbo from A Girl and A Glue Gun
So that is all for today. Now go enter the giveaway and we’ll see you back tomorrow when we’ll be getting to know our machines!
