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 would have to say I am probably a 5 or 6. I can set up a machine and sew mad pillows (with zippers). My mom and I did 20 in one day for her house and mine!

  2. Lisa E says

    SEW ME!!!! I’m guessing I’m a 2. Definitely a novice, have lotsa doll bedding under my cap, but want to branch out to literally bigger and better things!

  3. Melissa Mann says

    SEW ME! I’m totally a 1. I’d love to win this. Since it can auto thread, I think I would actually be able to use it.

  4. Megan says

    SEW ME! I started making my first quilt this weekend, but I still need a lot of sewing practice. I’d put my skill level at a 3.

  5. says

    SEW ME!

    I would definately be in the 0 to 1 category. I can re-sew a button on a shirt or fix a ripping-at-the-seam pillow but that’s about it. I haven’t touched a sewing machine since 7th grade Home Ec where I made a pillow shaped like a whale!

  6. Rachel says

    SEW ME!!!

    I’m gonna go 1.5… but having a sewing machine that isn’t ancient would definitely help up my skill level – and maybe even help me attempt the 57 bajillion quilts I have pinned on Pinterest. :)

    SEW ME!

    I’m a 2, my husband is probably a 5. We’re using my mom’s old Singer 337 from the 60’s, it still works, but the bobbin knots up every 25 seconds, so we’ve only actually finished 3 projects we’ve started – it’s so frustrating.

    I wonder, if we had a working machine, if our skills would be closer to a 4 and 7?

  8. Jennifer A says

    SEW ME!
    I think I am a 4. I can follow a pattern for simple clothing…. but hem’s, zips and button holes still leave me floundering!

  9. Abby says

    SEW ME!

    I LOVE to sew, always have ever since I took a sewing class at the age of 8. Curtains, pillows, halloween costumes; you name it! :) I would love this (I currently use a hand-me-down!)
