Giveaway Day is May 12!

Giveaway Day is our biannual link party! We use a handy link-up system that displays the item you’re giving away and takes people directly to your Giveaway Day post. Giveaways are limited to either handmade goods or sewing and craft supplies:

  • Handmade for the Home (quilts, hot pads, pillows, etc.)
  • Handmade Bags
  • Handmade Baby + Kid Items
  • Sewing + Craft Supplies (fabric, patterns, buttons, trims, yarn, etc.)
  • Handmade Accessories (hats, scarves, belts, adult clothes, etc.)

When we first started Giveaway Day several years ago it was only one day, but now Giveaway “Day” really lasts a full week! (Although everyone needs to post their giveaway on the first day.) This gives you time to browse through the hundreds of giveaways and enjoy and interact with the participating sites. On the morning of the event come here to Sew Mama Sew to upload your giveaway photo and link. It’s a great way to give back to the craft community and attract new followers at the same time.

Find more details, guidelines and tips for success on our Giveaway Day page. Grab our button to share via your site and help us spread the word about May Giveaway Day! (Image URL: http://www.sewmamasew.com/may2014/MayGiveawayDay.jpg) We’ll share specifics about start times, shipping dates and more when we’re a little closer to Giveaway Day.

This time around we have one big change; the link you submit in our Giveaway Day post must be either to a blog or a public Facebook page (a brand or business, but not your personal page). In the past we have not accepted Facebook pages but the site recently changed the rules for this type of activity, making it much easier to host a giveaway.

Please note that your giveaway is run at your own risk and is your responsibility. If you run your giveaway on Facebook, be sure you understand their guidelines. If you run your giveaway on your blog, be sure you understand the laws regarding sweepstakes and giveaways.
