Today we are partipating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! If you haven't participated before, Sew Mama Sew hosts multiple stores, designers and bloggers who are all giving away either handmade items or crafty supplies. You can visit and learn about new sites and enter to win as many giveaways as you want! We will be giving away our a collection of our Vintage Notions and Hankie Style books and coordinating collection of hankies. Hankie Style includes 22 stylish projects to make with vintage hankies, including tops, skirt, aprons, scarves and more! Watch the video below to learn more about Hankie Style and learn how to make a flower brooch. Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion, and Fun was inspired by the wisdom of Mary Brooks Picken, a pioneer in the domestic arts and international authority on dressmaking and fashion. Mary's sole purpose, which resonated so deeply with Amy, was to educate women, encourage their entrepreneurial spirit, and elevate the value of their work. Mary's name may not be familiar to you now, but in these pages you will be charmed by her vision and inspired by her "blueprint for living a simple, fulfilling life." In Vintage Notions, Amy Barickman joins creative forces with a previous era to preserve Mary's work for a new generation and showcase it alongside her own extensive collection of vintage textiles, needlework, illustrations, and memorabilia. To win, leave a comment telling us how you incorporate vintage style into your every day life. The contest will run through May 16th, and we will announce a winner on the 18th. This contest is open to US winners only. Good luck!
