The Designer’s Challenge Giant Giveaway & Review

Happy Christmas Eve to All! I’ll be back later today to share our Christmas PJs, but I couldn’t let the day pass without making sure that you got an opportunity to enter the huge pattern giveaway sponsored by the Designer’s Challenge participants, and since I fell terribly behind in sharing the new patterns during the challenge, I thought I’d give you a quick glance at each of them, too!

First up, the giveaway! One lucky winner will win the ENTIRE COLLECTION of Designer’s Challenge patterns! To enter, just click over to Pattern Revolution. You’ve only got a few days to enter, so hurry!

Now, on to the patterns! To purchase or to read more about each one, just click on the photo.

I absolutely LOVE Giveaway Day! If you’re visiting from Sew Mama Sew, Welcome! If you’re a regular here and haven’t popped over to SMS this morning, you simply must set aside some time to surf the world of crafty blogs and enter the hundreds of giveaways that will be offered by bloggers all over the world all week long: Craft Supply Giveaways & Handmade Item Giveaways.

It has been such a busy year for my little design business — I’ve released 18 new patterns this year! A large portion of those new releases have been part of a series called “Jersey Love”. I have had so much fun working with the amazing designer stretch jerseys that are on the market these days! This Giveaway Day, I thought I’d share the jersey love with you!There are two prize sets to choose from — a girl set and a boy set. The girl set includes one yard of Riley Blake Rainbow Chevron Jersey and 1/2 yard of RB Navy Dot Jersey, along with your choice of any of my patterns (paper or pdf) and five sew-on tags for that perfect finishing touch!

The boy set includes one yard of Riley Blake 1/2″ Gray & Yellow Stripe and 1/2 yard of RB 1″ Gray & White Stripe, along with your choice of any of my patterns (paper or pdf) and five of those Fishsticks Designs sew-on tags.Entering is really simple! All you have to do is comment on this post. If you do sew with knits, tell me what is your favorite thing about sewing them. If you don’t sew with knits, what is holding you back? Be sure to include your email address so I’ll know how to get in touch with you if you win. (Email addresses are never shared.) The drawing will run through December 13th at 2 p.m. eastern, a winner will be drawn at random from all entries, the winner will receive their choice of the boy set or the girl set, and this giveaway is open to US and international entries!

While you’re here, be sure to check out my growing list of free tutorials here on my blog, and all of my sewing patterns in theĀ Fishsticks Designs Pattern Shop.

Quilt Market Guessing Game – The Reveal & the Winner!

I’m on the road home with Samantha, but I had a few quiet minutes in our hotel room about halfway home, and I thought I’d take advantage of that time to reveal our booth theme for Market! (Of course, if you’re a Facebook fan or a follower on Instagram, you already know!) Did you guess that those supplies in last week’s post became hot air balloons?!There were twelve correct guesses, and random.org chose number nine, Jennifer, as the winner! (Jennifer, I’ll get in touch with you on Thursday once I’m home and a bit settled to find out which four patterns you’d like.) Congratulations!!

I’ll be back next week to share more about Fall Quilt Market. We had so much fun, and I have tons to share. In the meantime, did you see that I was interviewed for The Moms Know Moms Series at Little Kids Grow on Monday? You can find my interview by clicking on the picture below. I would love to hear your thoughts on how you juggle sewing, family and other responsibilities!

Quilt Market Set-Up & A Little Guessing Game

Good morning from Texas! We are busy here today getting the Fishsticks Designs Quilt Market booth up and ready. (If you’re going to be here, we’re in booth 2057. Come see us!)I thought it would be fun to do a little guessing game/giveaway like we did before Spring Market last year! The FD booth this fall has a really fun theme, and the supplies that you see in the picture at the top of this post were integral to creating the props. Anyone have a guess as to what we might have turned them into?

How about if I give away a pattern 4-pack? Just post a comment below and tell me what you think we made! I’ll take all the correct guessers and draw for a winner tomorrow morning. Ready? Go!

Update on Saturday morning: I’ll get pictures and the drawing winner posted soon! Feel free to come check out my Instagram feed for ongoing picture updates: Fishsticks Instagram
