My Favorite Things Giveaways: Day 3 - HAVEL'S SEWING!

7:00:00 AM


Welcome to the first ever Sew at Home Mummy "My Favorite Things" themed giveaways!

I'm so excited about this line-up I've got for you all - these giveaways will run daily from December 1-4, with each day being sponsored by my FAVORITE companies.

See Monday's Aurifil giveaway {here}.
See yesterday's Patchwork Threads giveaway {here}.

I really do take serious consideration when taking on sponsors here at Sew at Home Mummy. I never promote products or companies I don't believe in and use myself, and I don't ever suggest products I'm not absolutely in love with.

So. That said. Have you ever seen Oprah's "Favorite Things" week? You know, where she gives her audience cars/cookbooks/fabulous trips/kitchen gadgets/{insert fabulous gifts here}?

I always wished I was sitting in that audience.

I thought to myself - how fun would it be to have a series of giveaways here to kick off the month of December?

So I contacted some of the wonderful companies who sponsor me to ask whether they'd consider sponsoring a giveaway for my readers. Today's giveaway is brought to you by the super awesome company Havel's Sewing.

(THANK YOU TO HAVELS!)

I am such a lucky quilter to be sponsored by such a wonderful company - but more importantly, a wonderful company which creates wonderful products, and has amazing customer service to boot.

I stand behind them 100%. I really do love their scissors and cutting products. Some of my absolute favorites include:

5 1/2" Curved Embroidery and Applique Scissors:

...I'd be devastated if anything ever happened to these scissors. I love them for trimming threads. You can get so close to the fabric with the curved tip. Absolute must have. And RAZOR sharp.

Seam Ripper:
This seam ripper is amazing. It's super sharp, and the curved tip makes it really easy to remove those mistakes. It also comes with extra blades when you need to change them. The cap snaps on snugly and the handle is super pretty. I find that personally, I don't damage my fabric ripping stitches with this tool as much as my conventional seam ripper.

I love, love, LOVE this fabric cutter! So much so that I recently wrote a review on it {here}. You should totally spend a minute reading about it, it's fantastic. Makes a massive difference in cutting time, especially when bulk-cutting strips and things!

Alright - on to the good part!

So!! What's up for the win today, courtesy of the wonderful people at Havel's?

Prize: 
one lucky winner will take home a
