Unfortunately, however, there is one small catch..

This giveaway is only open to US residents.  I know, I know, that's really not fair to all our readers outside the US, but because of the very large size of the prize, it opens up all kinds of tax and legal considerations for a large company like  This is just the reality of business these days. have promised to work with their legal team and do everything possible to make future giveaways available worldwide, but for this one, our hands are tied.

But what about for the readers outside the US???

If you're outside the US, we plan offer an international giveaway of some Best of the Bags Pattern Bundles starting in the coming days so stay tuned for that.  While the value is a little lower, we'll give away a total of 10 prizes so the odds of winning will be better.

What's the best way to enter and win this contest?

For everyone participating in this giveaway, please remember that your best strategy is always to use the “Share with Friends for Extra Entries” feature to share this contest with your friends and family.  That way, you get an entry for every entry they make and it really turbo-charges your chances to win!  Do this early in the contest so you'll get this bonus for the duration.  Patricia B who won the giveaway last year won by doing this exact strategy.  Give it a try!
