***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…

Definitely a 1. Or 0.
Jessica G says
FOR SURE a 1, at least with a machine. Maybe a 2 with small hand-sewing jobs? Happy Holidays!
I am definitely a 1 – my husband can sew a hole better than I can! But I have been dying to learn and need a machine to do that! This would be amazing!!
Sew Me! I’m probably a 3 as well. I don’t know how to follow patterns but I make my own patterns up as a meagerly go along.
Ashley Zavertnik says
I consider myself a 1! But I want to try and learn to sew before we move into our new house :)
SEW ME! I would definitely be a 1 on that scale. Would love to learn though :)
Ashley SP says
I’m definitely a 2 pushing a 3. If I’m lucky.
SEW ME! I’m a -2 (i.e. I dream about learning to sew). I would love to win this!
I took a sewing home ec class in junior high, but am trying to get back my skills at the moment…
I have not sewn since my Home Ec. days in high school, yet it is definitely something I would like to get back into! This sewing machine would be the perfect way to do that!
I’m maybe a 2 1/2. But this machine could help me develop some skills! I’d love to own this baby!
I’m about a 2! If the machine is working I’m okay but as soon as something seizes, or goes weird – I need help! :)
I’m hoping to win this for my wife who is definitely a 1 – I can sew a hole better than her! But she has been dying of a machine to learn so this would be awesome!
I am a 1 but want to become a 2 :-)
SEW ME! I’m probably a 5 or 6…usually lots of trial and error.
SEWE ME! I’m about a 2. I’m learning to sew but still have a looong way to go. I’ve done pillows mostly.
SEW ME! I’m probably at a 2.5-3.0 Similar to Sherry I guess.. :)
SEW ME – I’m claiming a 3, just like Sherry!
I would rank in the mid range probably a 5-7 (higher if I had a sewing room and no kids to mess my stuff up.) ;)
I’m a 3. I once made a slipcover out of a dropcloth, but the back is all wonky.
SEW ME! I think I’m about a 5. I’ve made some of my own clothes, and can definitely read a pattern, but my skills aren’t’ going to get me on Project Runway anytime soon.
Devon @ Green House, Good Life says
I could make a not-wonky bag (although that’s assuming it’s basically two pieces of fabric sewn together, with some kind of handle…if it had to be three-dimensional, the wonk might come out).
I’m a two. I can sew a straight line pretty well. ;) I do have lots of things on my project list though that would require me to have a sewing machine.
SEW ME! I am a one…but I want to be a 6!!! : )
Sew me! I’m probably a 2. I can sew a wonky bag but the bag or the process wouldn’t be pretty. I love the idea of automatic threading.
I am a -10 YES a minus ten!
I’m about a 3 1/2. :)
Sew Me! I love this giveaway! And I’m the first to admit that my sewing skills are questionable at best..
I’m a 10!!! I’ve been sewing since I was 7 years old and that’s a very long time ago! :)
Oops! I forgot to say SEW ME!
Nope. I actually failed that part of my home ec class and got suspended for a cuss-slip up during. LOL. I’d love to learn though.
1.5 – I made purses in high school and want to start sewing again
Collette Alger says
Sew Me!!!! I am a 1 for sure…which is why I need this! Would love to learn more to make goodies for my little one year old guy:)
Britt F. says
Sew me! I’m right there with Sherry at the 3ish range. Pillows are about as complicaqted as I’ve gone. Yet.
Krystal C. says
SEW ME! I’m a .5. I can’t sew at all without supervision. I wish I had a brand new machine! Might make things easier…? I hope!
SEW ME! I think I might be a -5, but would love to learn, so this would be great! I have friends who could teach me :)
I’d say I’m a 3 like Sherry. I have a wonky bag to prove it. The seams are crazy crooked. Still love sewing though!!!
Kristina M says
SEW ME!! I’d have to say I have some skills!
I’m definitely a 1, but hopes of someday being a solid 4. I actually just recently broke my machine that I’d only had a week :-(
SEW ME! I’m definitely a 3 or so…
Sew Me! I am like a 2…. I need serious sewing help. :/ But I have grandiose dreams of sewing clothes for Evie- maybe this will help!!
First comment???? Woo hoo!
Lauren K. says
Totally a 3, I could probably pull off a very fashionable wonkybag. Probably. Maybe. Very wonky.
SEW ME…1. Definitely just starting to learn.
I’m a solid 4.6. Straight lines and buttons I can do with ease, anything beyond that and I’m hopeless!
SEW ME!! I am a novice seamstress. I can sew a straight line, but would love to learn some more advanced skills.
SEW ME! I’m definitely a 1. Sadly. Maybe because of the 50 year old sewing machine I’m trying to use? I’d sure love a new one!
Katie A. says
SEW ME! My skills are definitely at a 1, but I want to learn!
SEW ME! I have never once used a sewing machine but would love to start!
I’m probably a solid 8, pretty decent, but still lots to learn!
I’ve just recently picked up sewing again after not doing it for years. I get better with each project (sticking with little stuff at the moment), but I’d probably rate myself about a 4. I’d probably be a little better if I had such a nice machine!
When it comes to my sewing skills, I’m more like a 3.5-4 on a good day. Mine is currently falling apart so I could definitely use this!
I’d say I’m right there with Sherry, around a 3. I made a small quilt as part of an art history presentation in college, and it turned out, shall we say, less than square.
