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)
  • NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
  • 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 a complete and utter novice with a strong desire to be a 10, or sew a wonky bag at the very least, haha.

    SEW ME!

    I’m probably at a 1. I can sew buttons back on, and perhaps fix a hem that comes undone, but my technique is iffy at best. However, if I win this machine, maybe some cute pillows are in my future!

    SEW ME!
    Probably a 5 – sewed a lot growing up in school however lack of use has diminished my level. Only sewed pillows and curtains hems lately but looking to kick it up a notch .

    SEW ME!

    I think I’m somewhere between a 2 and 3. In high school, I became obsessed with making pillows during home ec class -ignore the fact they were all oddly-shaped and were more like a cotton-stuffed fleece…thing.

    Sew me! I’m a passable sewer, as long as the project has straight lines and takes 10 minutes or less. I have the patience of a gnat. My daughter is uber crafty though and we just rearranged the basement so she could have a sewing nook(which you can see on the blog). She has my machine now, which isn’t bad, but she would just love this one. Kid designs and makes stuffed animals and all sorts of things.

  6. Cindy says

    SEW ME! I rate myself a 4. I’ve made a few simple things but would love to learn how to do more.

    SEW ME!
    I’m a moderate sewer. My mom is a sewer and crafter so whatever I know is from my mom while growing up and I have to say that I’m not too shabby.

  8. Carolyn says

    Sew Me! I think i am a 5, with the potential to be a 10 with loads of practice and a few mishaps along the way!

  9. Josephine Freeman says

    SEW ME!

    I rank myself about 5 – I am enthusiastic but not particularly naturally gifted! I sew with a clunky old heavy 50s Singer at the moment and would love to upgrade to something a lot easier to use, and to lift!

  10. Mel V. says

    Sew Me!

    I’m maybe a four – I can hem jeans, make simple curtains, and even do Halloween costumes. But that’s where it stops!
