I have known of "Susan Branch" for many many years..I have every calendar she ever printed....All of my American friends were sew good in sending them to me every year. Her books well I have every one of them too, her fabric yes that too.Every design she made, have them all.Sew needless to say when I thought of "OUR" official 1st guest, I wanted Susan ... Susan Branch!
I had already chosen all of the giveaways for each day and then I read about Susan's favorite thing in her sewing room. Her grandmothers sewing basket.Wow, I look at the list and here we have a sewing basket..I know...this happens to me a lot....
This basket is from the Eleanor Burns collection
it is 10 x 71/4...not too large, just perfect actually.
Let's begin a new tradition since we do have quite
a few of these to giveaway in the next few weeks..
And will you look at all those goodies, pins, needles
threads, finger protectors...
Sew this giveaway for all of our QUILTERS..( yes this one can be yours) filled with every kind of needle you will ever need, seam rippers .. there are Presencia threads, everything you would need to sew anything.....All from Colonial Needles.
Colonial needles I have come to admire. They just acquired Presencia threads which I have been sew devoted to for not only my hand embroidery but also sewing and quilting threads.Sew you can only imagine my surprise when their President gave me the luxury to enter his online store and choose whatever I wanted....Well I thought why should I have all that fun..I called upon Jane from Jane's Fabrics and she had a hoot choosing everything for this basket...
