Hello all. To my U.S. readers, happy fourth of July! I'm really excited today to see that A Few Threads Loose has gotten up to 400 followers through Google! I never thought when I set out to chronicle my sewing adventures that I would meet so many great people and find so much encouragement and support. You're all awesome!
To say thank you, how about we have a giveaway?
I usually offer one of my newest patterns as the giveaway prize, but since this isn't about me, the winners will get to choose any 2 digital patterns from Mrs. Depew Vintage.
Winners, you say? Yes my dears, there will be two of you. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post with which two patterns you would like to win.
For extra entries you can do the usual stuff like mentioning the giveaway on your blog or facebook, following on facebook, bloglovin' or other if you don't yet, etc. Just be sure to leave me a comment for the extra entry.
I'll announce the winners this Saturday the 7th.
Good luck and thank you so much for reading my blog!
We're not the ones who are awesome - you're the one having to come up with all the content. We just consume! :)ReplyDelete
Oh, and +1 since I not only follow the blog, but also follow on Facebook.ReplyDelete
Happy day of followers to you!I do love all of your patterns......but the french slip and french sundress are on the top of my list!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for all that you share....
I agonized over the choices! I think I'd have to go with # 169 and # 1121.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the followers, I know that I love your blog and all of your patterns. I am still going slowly at this sewing stuff, but am definately going to be getting quite a few more of your patterns.ReplyDelete
On the top of my list would be
(a 50's halter top) because my closet is in much need of more tops and
(the 40s bathing suits) because who doesn't need that bathing suit. I love the marylin style one too, but I think more people are doing that one and this one has a bit more coverage.
just started following you on twitter, not sure how I missed you up until this pointReplyDelete
What a great giveaway! I fell in love with patterns 3007 and 1126. Congratulations and thank you!ReplyDelete
I already like you on facebook and I posted on my wall about your giveaway :)ReplyDelete
I follow you with google reader/google friend thing :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for this giveaway, I hope I did the entries right. If I didn't I am sorry.
In the facebook comment I should have said I like the blog and the patterns pages :)
Great giveaway! Since I still need more tops, I'd love the button-front halter top #1006, and the ruffle tap pants #166 are so cute.ReplyDelete
Yay! Congrats!! You deserve your success and thank you for having such wonderful patterns and being such a lovely person! :) I love all your patterns but my eye is drawn to the Beach Bustier, and Halter Top... I love me a halter neckline! :)ReplyDelete
I don't even have to look I already know the patterns I want! Bias cut tap panties and the french pin up bra :) :)ReplyDelete
Well done to you :) You have definitely earned all the followers ;)ReplyDelete
I'm another one who would like the Beach Bustier and the Halter top... this heat has definitely got me looking for summer clothes ;)
I have so many of those patterns on my wishlist right now, but if I had to choose two I'd go with the 50's bathing suit and the French sun dress <3ReplyDelete
I'm one of your newest followers by the way, so I want to say that I really love your blog, it's very inspiring!
thank you so much for this awesome giveaway! i love all your patterns, but only wish i could sew. so the two patterns i pick are:ReplyDelete

What a grand giveaway! As I am currently exploring my ability to make home-made undergarments, I'd love the teddy-camiknickers and the one/two-piece bathing suit.
While I have yet to try one of your patterns, I can't wait to start! I do love the 1930s Evening Gown (would be perfect for the Navy Seabee Ball in March and plenty of time to put it together) and the One Piece Bathing Suit. Thank you for a terrific giveaway and for your terrific blog!!!ReplyDelete

Congrats on a well done blog! I have been following you from the beginning. My choices would be the 1920's flapper dress #3001 and the 1940's French Ladies Jacket Draft. I have never sewn from a draft before so I think that could be quite an adventure!ReplyDelete
