Giveaway Day is our biannual link party. It’s a fun way to organize a whole bunch (usually around 500!) giveaways in one place, spread holiday cheer, find new blogs and sites, and hopefully win some great prizes. We use Inlinkz, 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 + CRAFT SUPPLIES.

  • Post your giveaway on December 8.
  • Come to Sew Mama Sew anytime after 6 a.m. PST.
  • Choose either the post for Handmade Goods or Craft + Sewing Supplies.
  • Add your image and link to the post.
  • Keep your giveaway open through Friday, email your winner by Sunday, and ship your package by Tuesday.

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 . (Image URL: We’ll remind you about all this later this week, but for now, be sure to put your giveaway on your calendar. December 8. Don’t forget!

GREAT NEWS! Inlinkz now supports Instagram photos and links, which means you can post your giveaway on Instagram! So you have three options:

  • Post your giveaway on your blog.
  • Post your giveaway on your Facebook PAGE for your brand or your business (but not your personal profile.) #SMSgiveawayday
  • Post your giveaway on your Instagram feed (but not if your photos are private). #SMSgiveawayday

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