Fab Freebie: Sew Simple

***This giveaway is now closed – see who won below!***

After clocking 10,000 entries under 24 hours, we’re already back to crown a random winner of the SINGER One sewing machine. The lucky person is… Angela (who says she’s a 1 on the sewing skills scale: “I can sew a straight line, but only if someone threads the machine for me first”). Congrats!

I’ve never touched a sewing machine in my life, but I’ve heard Sherry’s passionate muttering from the next room while using hers. Which is why anything labeled “Our easiest to use machine!” sounds compelling. And we’re so (sew?) excited that Singer is helping us give away a SINGER One – a feature-packed sewing machine that retails for nearly $500 – to one lucky reader! Something about an Automatic Needle Threader and OneTouch stitch selection sounds “approachable.” Plus the 24-available stitch patterns makes me believe you could fake your way into some pretty fancy stuff. Oh, and did we mention that Singer will ship this puppy anywhere in the world?

  • PRIZE: A SINGER One sewing machine (a $499 value!)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “SEW ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …where do you rank yourself on the sewing skills continuum? Are you a 1 like me (I couldn’t sew my way out of a bag)? A self-proclaimed 3 like Sherry (who could probably make “a wonky bag”)? Or are you more like a 10 (who could not only sew a bag from scratch, but do so blindfolded)?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, Dec 12th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: This giveaway is available worldwide (we always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not legally able to vend things beyond the US – more on that here).
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

    SEW ME!

    I’m going to say I’m a 2, but really want to become a 10. I live in NYC and think do I have room for a sewing machine, and I tell myself I want to find the room, so often I say if I had my own machine I would make my own stuff and repair my own things.

  2. Rita says

    “SEW ME!”
    I hope I can say at 63 years old, that maybe I am a 5. It would be nice to dream and wish I were a 10. I hope to win and then maybe I can work on that 10!
    “Merry Christmas!”

    SEW ME! I’m a zero. But in my head, if I only had a sewing machine – oh the things I could do. (Or at least try to do!)

  4. says

    SEW ME!

    I’m, maybe, a 3? I really want to try sewing patterns, but I get intimidated. I’ve turned out a few cute stuffed animals by hand-sewing them. I’m currently working on 20 pull-through scarves for the ladies in my life for Christmas!

  5. says

    I’m probably around a 5 or 6…I’ve been sewing on and off since I was a little girl and both my mom and grandmother were 10s. Like crazy 10s…more like 15s!

  6. Derk says

    SEW ME!

    I’m probably in the 3-4 range? I’ve got several pillows under my belt and I’m moving up to some more challenges (a duvet cover?). Basically, square things.

  7. Stephanie says

    SEW ME! If the sewing machine is set up (I don’t have to mess with the bobbin, etc), I can definitely sew! My grandmother taught me when I was little and we spent many hours making blankets, jackets, pillows, and more for family members.
