It was NOT easy to choose a winner for our Photo Competition as there were so many fabulos entries to choose from! I have to admit that I passed the buck to my daughter Amy (Thanks Amy!) to make the hard choices! LOL So without futher delay…..our winners are:

FIRST prize: First prize goes to Mara! (grecomara) Mara gets to choose any 5 of my bag patterns PLUS $50 store credit to buy hardware kits (Yes I still have some hardware even though I don’t have it in my shop – Mara will only need to cover postage costs!). That is a possible $100+ in value depending on choice of patterns!

1st Prize

Second prize: Our Runner Up is Olga Rogers. Olga gets to choose any 4 of my PDF sewing patterns PLUS $20 store credit for hardware kit purchase (Again, Olga will only need to cover postage costs!). That is a possible $60+ in value, depending on choice of patterns.

2nd Prize

Third Prize: Our 3rd Runner Up is Diya from TheHobbyHarbor. Diya gets to choose any 2 of my PDF sewing patterns! $20+ value!

3rd Prize

There are many other wonderful entries in the competition so please DO stop by the Flickr Pool for a look! Soon (hopefully! LOL) I will put together a nice catalogue with all the photos! I might even have to have another competition for the bags I don’t yet have photos for….wouldn’t that be fun? LOLL

Thanks to EVERYONE for entering….it’s been FUN! 🙂

Happy sewing,
