Winner Announced! Bernina Funlock b44 Overlocker Giveaway. See Who Won!

We're delighted to announce the winner of the Bernina Bernette Funlock b44 $599 RRP Giveaway.

I apologize for the slight delay in the announcement of the winner.  We lost someone very dear to our family over the Christmas period and that has set me back a bit, unfortunately.

So here's how she won:

The winner of this contest entered and won via the option of visiting the So Sew Easy Instagram page. If you've not yet visited, I'd encourage you to have a look and follow us there.

The most popular way to enter was to comment on several fabric selections.

We featured three different fabrics from our friends at during the contest.  Our readers came up with some terrific ideas on what to make with these wonderful selections:
