Giveaway Day is our biannual link party. We help organize hundreds of giveaways all in one place, and you get to spend days learning about new sites and trying for a chance to WIN lots of fun handcrafted items and supplies.

Giveaways are limited to either HANDMADE GOODS or SEWING + CRAFT SUPPLIES. This year we’re starting the fun on a Wednesday and keeping giveaways open through Sunday evening. We hope this will give you a mix of time in the weekdays and on the weekend to visit more sites. Here’s how to participate:

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

Inlinkz now supports Instagram photos and links, which means you can post your giveaway on Instagram. This gives you three options for your giveaway:

  • 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

Visit us in the morning on May 6th for all of the fun! Giveaway Day is a really exciting event and a chance to find lots of new sites to love.

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.

    I agree with Barbara. I love to sew but can’t figure out the other social media things.
    I am now teaching my grandchildren to enjoy crafts and sewing. Thanks for offering the fabric giveaway.

  5. Annie says:

    Yay, thank you for keeping it open over a weekend! It’s always tough for me to get to all of the awesome blogs on a weeknight.

  6. […] am also participating in SewMamaSews giveaway day again this year- May 6th. So be sure to check back and enter to win some […]

  7. I’d love to join this! It seems like it can be done from a blog, Facebook, or Instagram. I also don’t have a cell phone so I totally hear how frustrating that is for so many people. But SweaterDoll is on Facebook, so I’ll be participating there with a sewing pattern giveaway. Fun!

    I don’t “do” Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and most older women don’t either. I tried, and I just hated them all. We elders love to sew and do crafts, but those things are just not something we enjoy or want to get into for many reasons, so couldn’t there be some adjustment made for us, too? After all, didn’t we teach you youngers the things you love to do most?

    Hi Jacqueline, I agree. I think I am going to post a giveaway this year. But there will just be 1 entry. Leave a comment. I think that is all that is needed.

  10. Brandy Hurrelbrink says:

    I absolutely adore Moda Fabric it’s always very exciting to see the new stuff coming out.

    I am also excited about the giveaway May 6.

  11. Alexis Smith says:

    Excited to see what will be the giveaway day this May 6. I think this is going to be fun.

  12. Jacqueline VH says:

    I was very disappointed last time around to see how many Instagram giveaways there were. I am sure that I am not the only person who does not have a cell phone and cannot access them. Even though you can now access IG with your computer, you still have to have a device to sign up.
    It would be nice if the Instagrammers also had their giveaways posted on their blogs.
    Just my humble opinion.
