giveaway: pattern of the month club

Something new...
There are just a few days before the Pattern of the Month Club is officially under way, and I'm super excited. I've been working on finishing up the first set so that it gets sent on January 1st, which is also when the $30 early sign-up price goes away. So, if you've been thinking that you want a membership, and you'd like to save a few dollars, this is the week to sign up. You'll still be able to sign up in 2011 and get all 12 pattern sets, but the price goes up to $35.

However, for a bit of end-of-the-year fun, I have one membership to the Pattern of the Month Club that I'm giving away!

To enter, leave a comment with your name, email address (so I can reach you if you win!), and one thing that you're looking forward to in 2011. And if you've already signed up for the club, or you aren't a stitcher, you can still enter to win a gift subscription for someone else.

The giveaway will remain open until early Thursday morning, when I'll choose and announce the random winner.

Good luck, and I look forward to finding a new Club member!

    I'm looking forward to new crafty challenges in 2011, I'm planning to make presents for family and friends instead of buying them



  14. It wasn't my goal for the past year, but i ended up learning to knit. For the incoming year, i want to learn how to stitch. :) That, and learn to knit socks and sweaters.

    Pam F. (anthrogal at gmail point com)

  15. My goal for 2011 is to learn to crochet, make bags/purses, and make small art quilts. I doubt any of them will trump my love for stitching, but I do love variety.

  24. I'm looking forward to my mum visiting me in the Netherlands for the first time.


  25. I am looking forward to creating some order in the chaos that is my house. This means painting the craft room and the library/guest room and then putting all of the craft supplies and books away in their rightful places. And then I can get a handle on what books I have to read and what craft supplies I have handy to use!

    Embroidery is on my (very short) list of crafts to start in 2011, in between working on the crafts in progress list...

  26. What am I looking forward to in 2011??.....a new knee...you see, I'm getting a knee replacement, and seeing Im only 45, it will be nice to be able to get from the sewing room to the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, without pain so I can accomplish way more sewing projects!!!
    Thanks for the chance...my fingers (and knees!!) are crossed!
    Sugary hugs
    Wendy :O)

  30. Alyce

    I am looking forward to having more time for my sewing and jewellery making. 2010 was a massive year for me, with a new job, new house and move to a new city, so amongst all that I had no time for craft :(

  31. I'm looking forward to getting my small business off the ground, to getting my life more organized, and to learning something every single day.


    Not that this is a lot, or anything. *grin*

  57. Oooo, fun giveaway!
    2011 brings NEW BABY! Very excting and looking forward to doing my best to continue crafting with TWO boys in the house. :)

  58. I'm looking forward to the random number generator finally tipping its hat towards me.

    Seriously, in 2011 I'm looking forward to being *settled*. For the first time in the past 6 or 7 years, I now have a routine and a schedule. The end of 2010 established my habits and I've gotten a taste of the organized life. It tastes good. I get so much more done. And at the end of the day/week/month, I feel so satisfied.

    Yeah. I look forward to that.

    ...and winning this giveaway. (AND apparently, exhibiting confidence is something else I'm looking forward to doing.)

  83. Hi Mollie~
    There is so much to look forward to in 2011 it's hard to pick just one, but I'm really looking forward to stitching up your cuckoo clock pattern. I'm going to make myself a new carry all bag to drag back n' forth to the office and embroidered cuckoo will be the pocket on the front of the bag. I really love that pattern, and I'd really love to win a membership to your stitch along!

    p.s. That penguin cake is adorable!

  87. I am looking forward to finding the secret balance between raising a 3 yr old boy, and still having crafting/Mommy time. I'm very close to finding it, and hopefully in the New Year I'll have not only found it, but it will be old hat and dare I say, "routine"! (Bells and whistles going off)! Happy New Year!
