Shedding light on Sewing

It’s nearly time to say happy birthday to The Sewing Directory  – they will be celebrating their 6th birthday on 25 March (2 days before me, although sadly for me you have to add a few extra years…). Since its beginnings as a sewing listings directory, The Sewing Directory has grown wonderfully to become what amounts to an online sewing magazine with a huge amount of content including a fabulous range of free sewing projects.

So to recognise this and to celebrate their anniversary, The Sewing Directory are holding a lovely competition with a couple of great prizes! All you have to do to enter is to share something you have made using one of the free projects on their website on social media, using the hashtag #sewingdirectory

How about having a go at this adorable pincushion project?

You can share your Sewing Directory make on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest and here’s how…

  • Facebook – Post a pic on the Sewing Directory Facebook page
  • Twitter – Share a picture using the #sewingdirectory hashtag
  • Pinterest – Pin your image and make sure you tag us @sewingdirectory
  • Instagram – Post a picture or tag an old picture using hashtag #sewingdirectory.

If you don’t use social media you can send them your image by e-mail.

And, even more brilliantly, you can feel free to enter more than one project (but only one per social media platform), so you have more than one chance to win.

You can find the full details here, along with the T&C, on The Sewing Directory website.

The prize is a wonderful Twist Portable LED  lamp from The Daylight Company (RRP £75) – and there will be 2 winners, who will each receive a lamp.

Great competition or what? Make yourself (or a friend!!) something fabulous with a free project, show off how brilliant it is all over social media, and get the chance to win a great prize. Sounds like a win win win to me!

Good luck to everyone who enters, and a very happy birthday to The Sewing Directory, and a big hurrah for Fiona and Julie, who make The Sewing Directory such a great resource.
