COMPETITION: Stitch and I SEW Want to Win
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on February 2, 2009
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. YAY to the winners! 🙂
We don’t want to buttonhole you (sorry), but S&B Londoners seam (sorry) like a crafty bunch (and we don’t just mean the plotting you do to discourage people from sitting next to you on the Tube for more knitting room. We’ve seen you). We like to bring out the crafty in you. Fancy adding another fold to your crafty cape of wonder?
The lovely folks at Dorling Kindersley worry about your craft super powers too. So much so that they have decided to offer us the chance for you to win one of 10 copies of The Sewing Book in our fabulous exclusive I SEW Want to Win Competition.
The Sewing Book shows you the basics of hand and machine sewing, how to make soft furnishings, clothes making, and a bit of mending too. We’ve been sent a copy and quite frankly we are a little bit in love with it. Clear pictures, easy instructions, shiny pages, want-to-make-now patterns. It’s a veritable bible of sewingness. The Sewing Book is published by Dorling Kindersley, RRP £25.
So here’s the deal. Answer this question:
Which one of these sewing techniques would you use to close the toe of a knitted sock?
a. Kitchener Stitch
b. Bathroom Stitch
c. Cupboard-under-the-stairs Stitch
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with:
• The subject “I SEW want to win!”
• Answer A, B, or C
• Your full name, email address, and contact phone number (if you have one)
The deadline for the competition is Wednesday 11th February at 10am. The winners will be picked (by our fluffy Answer-picking Sheep) from all correct entries, and notified by email or phone within 48 hours.
No cake-flavoured bribes will help you win, just get the answer right and then cross your fingers (not while knitting though. That can cause all kinds of problems). Don’t hem and harr over it. If it seams like a good idea then fabricate an answer and enter. We won’t needle you about it.
Okay, we’ll stop that now…Competition rules: 1. One entry per person. 2. Competition ends 11th Feb 2009 at 10am. 4. Winner will be drawn from all correct answers, and notified within 48 hours via email or phone. 5. If winners don’t reply with addresses within two weeks of closing date then new winners will be chosen. 5. No cash alternatives. 6. Book will be posted to winners.
