It's Giveaway Day!!

Well, It's Giveaway WEEK!!  And WOW are there lots of giveaways!

This week Sew, Mama, Sew is hosting Giveaway Day.  When it started it was A day, but there are so many giveaways now that "Giveaway Day" has expanded to "Giveaway Week".

Enter my giveaway and then head over to Sew, Mama, Sew and surf the net to enter more giveaways!  And YES, this is my SECOND giveaway post in three days and my third in less than 3 weeks!  If you haven't already entered, and you like Green or Batiks (hint, hint) head over to my previous post (clicking here will open the post in a new window) and enter that Giveaway as well.


If you are coming from the Giveaway Day Linky Party at Sew, Mama, Sew, WELCOME to my little corner of Blogville.

THIS giveaway is for one of my favorite tools in my toolkit.  A pair of Gingham 4" Curved Embroidery Scissors... Plus a little surprise.


In my humble opinion, this is a little pair of scissors that no quilter should be without.  They are perfect for snipping threads close to the fabric without cutting the fabric.  Mine are ALWAYS on my Sewing Rug right next to my machine.  I use them EVERY time I sew.  If you do any type of needlework (needlepoint, cross stich, hand embroidery, etc.) these are also a must.  I cross stitch as well, and when I do, I use these almost exclusively.  (I even bought a pair of cheapo, knockoff curved scissors to carry with me when  I travel.  I wouldn't want TSA taking my Ginghers, but if they take my $3.00 pair, well, I can afford to lose those...)

While I, like every blogger likes to have followers, I will not require my winner to be a follower, but please, if you feel inclined to, peruse a few posts, and if you like what you see, follow my blog.  The more the merrier, especially when creative criticism or input is needed!!

So, here's what you have you have to do to enter this giveaway... Leave a comment and tell me what tool is next to your machine EVERY time YOU sew.  Mr. Random Generator will choose a winner on Saturday morning...

Good Luck!

Until Next Time,
Paul


PS - to my International Friends... I am in the USA, and I will gladly ship anywhere in world where I can legally ship a pair of scissors.  I didn't try to verify that it was legal to ship to every country in the world.  For those that I did check, it would be legal to ship these... IF I find that I can not legally ship these directly to a winner in a foreign country I will contact said winner and offer a different prize.

  2. Wow!! another 1st :) the tool always by my sewing machine is ... my seam ripper, of course! Happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  3. my quilting gloves. for some reason i find fabric so slippery with trying to be precise.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I have never used the curved scissors but they seem pretty handy. What's next to my sewing machine? Usually my laptop, so I can listen to an audiobook while I sew.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I have a pile of tools next to my sewing machine! Seam ripper, thread nippers, TV remote control and cell phone. Can't sew without all of those things!

    ReplyDelete
  6. usually i have my inspiration board next to me. it keeps me going!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Always by my side are my Fiskar spring operated snips. But I have been told that the curved snips are great for machine quilting (at which I am a novice), so I have been wanting to get a pair. Thanks for the chance, Paul.

    ReplyDelete
  8. This is a little weird, considering it's not strictly a "sewing" tool, but I always have a (medium-sized) fridge magnet next to me to catch all my pins. I don't have a pin-cushion, just a pin box, so the magnet is vital for avoiding droppage and other disasters.

    ReplyDelete
  9. scissors and my earbuds so I can crank the tunes during nap time!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Love Gingher scissors--I don't have this size though. Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I always have my beautiful wet felted needle cushion! Thanks for the chance, this is a wonderful giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  12. These would be so awesome to have in my applique tote! The tool that is next to my machine without fail is my spring-loaded nips from my sewing factory days in 1989. Far more sturdy than anything we can buy now, they are solid and fit so perfectly in my hand with the finger ring. And still plenty sharp enough!! (Although they're FINALLY starting to dull up, and I am missing the super-cool-yet-grumpy white-bearded grandpa guy who was at our beck and call on the sewing floor to do anything we needed at a moments notice (change those industrial needles, adjust the tension, sharper our nips. . . ) Yeah. I want one of him by my machine! ;D

  13. my little sewing tool box is always right at hand and that usually has everything i need (including the all-important seam ripper!)

  14. scissors...but such a bad pair I have there...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have a little pair of mini scissors (my fingers barely fit into the holes) but they are small enough that I glued a heavy duty magnet onto my machine and I stick them on there- they never get misplaced. I do have a pair of these gingher scissors near my ironing board, and agree- they are indispensable! I would love another pair for in my upstairs office. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My Stitche Ripper is always by my side. I use it more than I would like to. :) I am happy follower.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have a set of Ginger shears that are with me for every sewing project and have been wishing for a mini pair. So hopeful to win these!

    ReplyDelete
  18. unfortunately, my seam ripper is always next to me when i sew!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my gosh! I asked Santa for a pair of embroidery scissors this year as it seems the pixies have run off with my old ones. The tool I always have next to my machine is (unfortunately) a seam ripper. I can get a little sloppy at times!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have an oversized pin cushion filled with emery that is always next to my machine...it's really heavy, so it's not going anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Um...seam ripper...but scissors like these would be looked upon with far more kindness by me :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Long handled tweezers. Great for grabbing the bobbin thread or use as a stiletto, many uses.

    ReplyDelete
  23. unforunately.. my seam ripper :( hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  24. My thread snips are always out of the drawer and next to my machine - so I can snip off the beginning and ending threads tails.

  25. My seam ripper. I think I use it too much :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. The one thing I have to have next to my machine may sound extremely odd but it is a few antique "pick up sticks" I use them as a stiletto. I bought the whole pack at a garage sale years ago for 50 cents and they have be very helpful. They are wooden not plastic like they ones they make today. Love your blog btw

    ReplyDelete
  27. My seam ripper, my scissors, and a bamboo skewer. I can't live without any of those things.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I do tons of embroidery so these scissors would be perfect for me! Thanks and blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  29. Next to my machine are pins, a seam ripper, a rounded chopstick (really comes in handy), and an assorted collection scissors. Each is as important as the next!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Seam ripper, when it isn't lost. I'm the only embroider-er I know without a pair of embroidery scissors, too, so fingers crossed!

  31. Two things: Pin cushion and scissors. Always.

    ReplyDelete

  37. Thanks for a lovely giveaway. I don't own a pair of those scissors, but would love too. =) I'm also a new follower...and will look forward to seeing your creations.

  38. My husband got me a big pair of Ginghers for Christmas a few years ago and those are always on my sewing table, along with a seam ripper.

    ReplyDelete
  39. my iPad, i need music when i sew! :) thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My ginormous Gingers are right next to me, so a tiny pair would be most welcome. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't own a pair of Ginghers yet, but I keep reading about how amazing they are. I keep a little seam allowance measuring stick next to my machine whenever I sew. I'm horrible at eyeballing things, and that mini-ruler is so much more convenient to keep around than a yardstick!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, I could really do with a pair of those. Sadly next to my sewing machine is usually my laptop - firstly for music and secondly because I'm such a new sewer I have to constantly refer to tutorials or how-tos to work out how to do the next step ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. YES! I need some snips. All I have are big scissors and I'm afraid of clipping the threads too close sometimes, especially on quilts. :/

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've heard such fabulous things about these scissors- thanks for the chance to win. My seam ripper is always by my side!

    ReplyDelete
  45. It should be a little pair of snips, but I always seem to leave them sitting on the ironing board.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love Ginghers! I have a pair of sheers that my husband knows will cut his flesh if he every cuts anything that's not fabric with them.

    My next-to-the-machine tool would be my pin cushion. I have 2: 1 for wherever it is I'm pinning and 1 for my by my machine. When the one gets empty I switch them!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Needle threader! And magnetic pin grabber.

    ReplyDelete

  56. A magnetic bowl I stole from my husband...it's the ULTIMATE "pin cushion"! It's intended for nuts and bolts while working on a car, so it's BIG and will catch a needle tossed anywhere in it's direction. Can't imagine working without it...I'd have a lot more needles in my feet I imagine! ;)
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  63. A cat is always next to my sewing machine. My sewing tools are in a box on the shelf next to my machine because my cats think that all my tools are toys to play with so I can't leave them out.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I don't sew without my extension table. I serously don't know how I did anything without it before I got it.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm never without a pair of scissors. The big cheap-o kind that I replace every year or two. I've never gotten a "good" pair because I don't know what to get and I'm scared that my kids will get hold of them and accidentally lose a limb or something. Now the little ones? I'm definitely up for a pair of those! (I could keep them in my embroidery tin - I take that with me everywhere I go!)

    ReplyDelete
  82. sadly enough my seam ripper is closest to my machine no matter the project

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  85. My magnetic pin keeper! I love it!
    I could really use these scissors! Thanks for the chance:)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Everytime I sew I always need to have my trusty seam ripper handy...just in case! =)

    ReplyDelete
  87. My seam ripper is ALWAYS next to my sewing machine. i do leaders and enders so I always need to separate the project I"m working on from them!

    ReplyDelete
  88. A little smooth wooden container that my father made for my mother - it is shallow and scooped out like the kind that holds paperclips - I put it on the bed of the sewing machine for straight pins that I remove while piecing.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love the little cleaning brush that came with my machine...although I don't clean out the fuzzies every time I sew, because it's more fun to let the lint build up (really good for the machine, I know). My mom is psychotically protective of her Ginghers, so it'd be fun to have my own! :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. my pin cushion :)

Love my large Ginghers and am betting the small ones are great, too! Been a follower for some time now, and love reading your posts.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Seam ripper here too. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I never sew without a notepad, I get my greatest ideas while in the middle of another project, that never fails to make me quit halfway through and start the new one. Vicious cycle.

    ReplyDelete
  112. HA I wish I had the same tool next to my sewing machine every time I sew, but my little "helpers" like to run off with anything I leave out, so I always have to go looking for everything. I do have a seam ripper tucked into the hidden compartment in my machine, so I guess I'll have to go with that.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Ooooooooooo Ginghers! The tool I always have next to me is a bright light. It's so dark here in the winter, I need all the help I can get when threading the needle and trying to see what I just sewed! :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Ooooh, gotta love a nice pair of scissors. The area next to my sewing machine is usually very messy but there is always a pair of scissors, a pin magnet, numerous tape measures etc on one side (if I can find them in the hovel) On the other side is the pile of family clothing repairs that never seems to get done when there is fun sewing to be done ;)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Great giveaway - you can't over-estimate a good pair of scissors :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. Thanks for giving away the lovely scissors

    ReplyDelete
  129. The pin cushion, scissors and (sadly) a thread ripper for picking stitches - I can't seem to make it through a project without messing up at least once (usually when I'm tired and it's past the point I should have gone to bed!)

    ReplyDelete
  130. I always keep a pair of small embroidery scissors.. Easy to grap and clip threads as you sew. Thanks for the giveaway.

    New to your blog, but I'm following now. From a polite distance, of course!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I have a little sewing caddy with need-to-have-at-hand notions in it and a huge pincushion on top. My must have every time from there is a cupcake ring pincushion that fits onto my left thumb. One of my friends gave it to me and I cannot believe I sewed without it before. It's super handy and it makes sewing so much more fun.

    Thank you for a great giveaway - these scissors sound fabulous.

  163. A flat dish of straight pins (pin cushions are beautiful and on display, but this way I can drop them in the dish as I pull then out and reach in and grab more when needed easier than a bowl-ish dish) and unfortunately a seam ripper.

  171. What great scissors - I would love a pair of those. Gingher's is such good quality! By my machine every time I sew is my stiletto - I learned to quilt with one and now I feel naked without it in my hand to guide the fabric through.

  172. Seam ripper and this little brush that came with my machine. I use it to dust off lint from metal parts, clean lint from bobbin case, and pull bobbin thread thru when changing bobbins. Thank you for the give away.
