Sounds exciting right? So blogs everywhere are offering giveaways to celebrate and I thought I'd join in and offer a patchwork scarf I made.
The website will have just about everything you can think of that you would want online as a sewer. There are forums, online advice from industry experts, conversion charts, colour wheels, free patterns and class listings.
There will be interviews with all your favourite designers, quilters, patterns makers and authors. There will be tutorials with me and with other sewers from here and overseas, podcasts and coverage from shows and articles about all maner of exciting things.
Best of all, there are great unique gadgets - Fabricmatcher, which is an online tool which lets you match patterns to fabrics and see what your project will look like without sewing a stitch, and Find Fabric, which is the niftiest thing that will find the fabric you are looking for without you having to search for it for hours on the internet. It's so clever it even searches shops in your vacinity first to save you on international postage. How cool is that?
Plus there will be an online buy and sell area called SEWiNg, which is where you can sell the stuff you sew to the people out there who don't sew - and some of the ones who do :)
The fabric is from Moda called Recess and the scarf is backed with a cream cordoroy and it measures 56" long.
To be in the chance to win, just leave me a comment before 8pm AEST on Monday June 8th on this post. I will ship internationally so everyone is welcome to join in.
I can't wait to see the new website!
