Talking of giveaways, let's get down to business and the super prizes I have on offer for you today.

Our sponsor today just was so generous with the prizes, I was speechless.  I'd already dealt with Gold Star as a customer several times, when I need small bits and pieces, special feet for my sewing machine and things which were hard to find elsewhere.  So when I contacted them about taking part in the series, I already knew that they had fabulous products and excellent customer service and that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.


It's rare to find such a wide range of products all in one place and whether you are just starting out and need a pack of bobbins or basic sewing notions and accessories, or are an experiences sewist looking to upgrade your sewing machine, or even run a professional sewing business – Gold Star has all of the equipment you need in one place, and of course with great prices too.

Looking for special supplies such as boning, eyelets and grommets, pattern making tools, unusual snaps and rivets, or a part for your sewing machine – Gold Star has it all.  If you want something larger such as a sewing machine, serger, dress form, large cutting table, or steam press you can find them all here too.

  32. Carol Barringer says:

    I am a new follower by email. The site is fantastic for content! I love following all the links and I am bookmarking like crazy! My only complaint: I find raffle-copter so hard to use in comparison to other random-generator give-aways. And since I don’t use Facebook, Twitter, etc., out of 6 or 7 or more opportunities for an entry, I only qualify for ONE! — even though I diligently explore each donor site and take the time to make thoughtful comments beyond “Sooooo Cute!” And among my friends, I am often able to check my bookmarks and connect them to something-or-other I found in my explorations. Which I do love doing, I just wish it “counted.”

    • Deby Coles says:

      Hi Carol, sorry to hear that you aren’t registered in the right places for the giveaway entries – I hate to disappoint people. I went with what is the most common and popular method for giveaways but I would love to hear your suggestions for how to administer alternative methods for the future. I’m always open to suggestion and am happy to look at a better way that would be fair for everyone. What sort of giveaways do you like to enter? What random-generator giveaway systems have you seen in use? Of course the sponsors of the giveaways always ask for a little something in return for the prize, which is usually a way to promote and get extra followers to their social media accounts etc, but if you have more inventive ideas for how we can reward the sponsors I’d love to know more! Thanks for taking the time to let me know what you think.

  33. Susan H says:

    Having sewn for many years, I gave it up, also for many years, and now am just renewing my interest. Love your site and your inspiration.

  34. the crafty b says:

    I look forward to making many of the items in this series! I love the ease of creation and the style/beauty of the items! Nicely done.

  35. Sue says:

    I think this is so great. I just found you recently. But in time for the series before it was over!

  36. Vernagrace says:

    Thank you so much for this Series. Great content, and I look forward to making many of the projects!

  37. Beverly says:

    I just loved everything about it

  38. Debbie Crooks says:

    I’m not sure if my entry went in for this… Boo me if it didn’t!! Hope soo!
    I had a think come back in my email but nowhere to hit summit???

    • Deby Coles says:

      You have to enter the draw by following the various options on the rafflecopter entry form in the post itself. You can see which of your entries are accepted because the entry dims out so that you can’t do the same again Debbie.
