Sewing News - Gertie’s Grand Giveaway!

Gertie from the well-known Gertie’s Blog for Better Sewing has just made an extremely exciting announcement. She is releasing a line of apparel fabrics to be available at Joann’s this March! Here’s what she says about the line:
"It's a collection of 17 designs on apparel fabrics: cotton sateens, cotton poplin, rayon challis, Swiss dot, chambray, and more. 
The designs range from classic vintage florals to 40s- and 50s-inspired novelty prints (cherries and strawberries and bows and poodles!). There are also some super fun novelty weaves especially intended for retro dress patterns. 
The idea was to create special vintage prints that are hard to find, produced especially on apparel fabrics. (Retro kitty cats on a textured chiffon, for instance!)"
Retro prints in cotton sateen and cotton poplin!? I am dying with excitement. Just look how cute it all is!


To celebrate the announcement, Gertie is having a contest. Create one of her patterns available at Butterick before January 31, 2015 for a chance to win one bolt of EACH of the designs!


There are quite a few patterns to choose from


I’ve had my eye set on 6094 since it came out. However, I’m not sure if I want to do the flared skirt or the straight skirt.


I’ve never entered a contest before. Could I even complete such a task before the 31st of this month?
