We’re excited to partner with Anna Maria Horner to celebrate the launch of her gorgeous, new Anna Maria KNITS plus the sweet and versatile Lemon Drop Sewing Pattern! We all want to get our hands on these beautiful new fabrics, and a Lemon Drop is the perfect way to jump in and play with the knits! You have TWO ways to play today: There is a TradeAway with rules below for entry via Anna Maria’s Instagram, plus a Giveaway with your comment on this post.


22 lucky sewists will be selected to participate in Anna Maria Horner’s #ilovelemondrops Instagram TradeAway! The “Lucky 22” will each receive fabric and a pattern from Anna Maria Horner, and then they will trade back a photo of someone wearing the finished Lemon Drop. (It’s a really fabulous trade!)

Do you want to be one of the 22 Lemon Drop Makers? Enter the TradeAway:
1. Post a photo on Instagram anytime between now and August 4th of who you would make a Lemon Drop for and tag it with #ilovelemondrops. (It could be you or someone you love, sizes range from kid sizes 18mos-4T, 5/6yr-11/12yr or women’s XS-XL.)

2. Follow Anna Maria Horner on Instagram @annamariahorner and watch for all 22 different varieties of the pattern to post on Friday, August 1st between 9 a.m.-12 p.m. CST. Comment “Pick Me” on any or all the 22 posts that you would like to make. Anna Maria’s team will choose a random “pick me” commenter on Monday 8/4 for each of the 22 posts and tag you on Instagram to let you know you’re a chosen maker.

3. If you are selected you must email your shipping address to and agree to sew the specific Lemon Drop variety you’ve been selected for once you receive the fabric and pattern from Anna Maria Horner. By August 30th you’ll also snap and send a picture of whoever you’ve sewn it for with a white (or at least solid) background for Anna Maria to use and share.

International entries are accepted!
