January Giveaway!

Any one interested in a giveaway?

As some of you know I recently started up a supply shop of threads called Threads2000.  I bought some threads when I was over in Athens last August to try them out for myself.  The threads are great to work with, 100% eqyptian cotton and very strong, and last a good while 1000yrds.  They are made in Greece. 

Eventually the penny dropped I thought why not let the guys try them out ?

Therefore I am giving away 3 of my threads, a gorgeous canary yellow, luscious teal and silvery grey.  (Please note threads only not my Meet the Gang fabric sorry!)

The threads!
While sorting through my patchwork room I came across a Cath Kidson book Sew! I bought last year.  I think I have only looked through it once so it's effectively brand new, intact and patters unopened.  So I thought I would include this in the giveaway.

The book
The rules are simple -

1.  Check out my Threads2000 shop (if you are an etsian favourite it) and come back and tell me which is your favourite thread.

2.  Become a follower of my blog, whether it's through reader, feedburner, the old fashioned way or subscribing to my email, if you are already a follower then just say so.

3. Become a fan of my facebook page.

4.  For an extra extra entry share my giveway on your blog or facebook page and come back and tell me that you did (i.e post the link in the comments box).

That's it folks! 

This giveaway is open to everyone i.e international entries welcome.

If you are a noreply blogger then ensure that you include your email address in your comment otherwise I will have no way of contacting you and I will have to pick another winner.

Giveaway closes Friday 20 January at 12 midnight, winner will be announced Saturday 21 January 2012.

Good luck!

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
