We’ll also give away one yard of fabric to four people.  We have some great new collections in the shop to choose from!

Before you run off to comment, I just want to remind you about Giveaway Day, which is just a few days away.  If you’re participating, be sure to send Beth your email by Monday (see this post for details.)  We’ve received over 200 emails so far, so set aside some time on Wednesday to browse a bunch of great blogs and try your luck at winning one of many, many giveaways!  We’ll post 2 lists early in the morning.

For your chance to win Simple Sewing for Baby, or one yard of free fabric, join in one of the threads in the forum or comment in one of the two fantastic pattern reviews we posted this week–Amy’s review of the Socialite Dress pattern, or Kathie’s review of the Mod Kid Frida pattern.  Have a great holiday weekend!  (Comments open through Sunday.  Winner announced Monday.)
