Holiday Giveaway with SA Curve Ruler!

Sew Well - Holiday giveaway with SA Curve Ruler

The WordPress-generated falling snow has reappeared on my blog, which serves as a good reminder to busy ol’ me that the holiday season is upon us.  In the blog-y blog world this season is often highlighted by lots of crafty and selfless sewing… and lots of giveaways!

And, guess what?!  The same is going on over here!

I’m excited to announce a pretty awesome giveaway that I’ve been putting together behind the scenes in collaboration with SA Curve.  One lucky reader will get a SA Curve Mini & Pattern Drafter in a size of the reader’s choice (5/8″, 3/8″, 1/2″, or 1.5 cm) and an EZ wheel in either inches or metric, again as per the reader’s choice.  That’s a complete set of curves and measuring devices for almost any pattern manipulation you could want to do.

Sew Well - Holiday giveaway with SA Curve Ruler

I actually have both the 5/8″ and 3/8″ rulers, and I use them quite a bit.  I like the 5/8″ rulers for marking stitching lines on commercial patterns, and I like the 3/8″ ruler for marking seam allowances on patterns that come with only stitching lines, like BurdaStyle patterns.  I only have the measuring wheel that measures off inches, but I find it incredibly useful for walking seams and for comparing armscye to armhole measurements.  If you’re unfamiliar with these invaluable sewing notions, I’ve written two reviews on them:  one on the rulers and one on the measuring wheel.

I’m so excited to know that one of you will be starting off your 2014 with the ability to measure and mark anything and everything on your patterns thanks to these rulers.  If you’d like to be entered into the drawing, just leave a comment below letting me know. I’ll pick a winner at random next Thursday, December 19th at 7 am PST.

[Cue my best infomercial voice…] But, wait, there’s more! You can currently save 20% off on anything and everything in the SA Curve Etsy Shop through the end of December using the coupon code SEWWELL20 or HOLIDAY20.  If you’ve always actually wanted the EZ Pocket and EZ Shirtmaker (something I would have liked when I made my husband’s shirt recently!) or if you want to subtly mention to your loved ones that they can save money on a wonderful little sewing gift for you or if you aren’t excited about taking your chances in the giveaway and want to just go ahead and get yourself a nice stocking stuffer, you should definitely take advantage of the sale.

So, go forth and sew well thanks to SA Curve!

    Oh, I’ve been wanting one of these ever since I first saw them on your blog, but I can’t currently afford them. ):
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. Helen says:

    Hi Amy, I’ve been looking at getting a set of these rulers for a while now, so your giveaway has come just at the right time!!! Please put me in the draw and thanks very much.

    I actually bought a ruler based on your review and love it. It is my go-to ruler when working with patterns. SA Curve provides excellent service. Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. Tanja Haack says:

    I have the 5/8 ruler and I love it! I’ve been thinking about getting the 3/8 in and the measuring wheel. I would love to wn them.

  6. hpennie says:

    Oh wow, I just realized your blog is snowing!! I have two of the original rulers by SA Curve, but haven’t been able to justify purchasing the newer versions….yet. Definitely going on my Christmas wish list. I think the shirtmaker would also be excellent and am adding it to my list as well.

  7. Erin says:

    I can see these being immensely helpful while working towards my fashion design & construction certificate. I recently started in on my first original design & have been thinking how much easier adding seam allowences would be with one of these (especially on curves!) than with your basic straight clear ruler.

  8. Sandra Cunningham says:

    It is 11 degrees this morning in upstate NY and plenty of white stuff on the ground. I would love the 5/8. Thank you!

  9. Kim Fisher says:

    I have the 3/8″ pattern drafter and would love the mini or the 5/8. Thanks for the great reviews and thanks for allowing me to enter the giveaway.

  10. Laura James says:

    This is a wonderful give away…please enter me in it. I think they’d be really useful in my plans to develop some well-fitting TNT patterns this year!

  11. kathysportal says:

    What a neat tool to use. I would love to have something to mark 5/8 seam allowances. My estimating doesn’t work a lot of the time. And the blog snow. We have several inches right now; I wish it were only on the blog sometimes. I hate shoving snow.

  12. donnyb54 says:

    I saw the “snow” on other blogs and wondered how it was done – so now I know! I could really use those tools with my pattern alterations. Thanks for the chance to win them.
    Merry Christmas

  13. Jacqueline says:

    What a superb giveaway! I am just beginning an online drafting course and would *love* to have these rulers in my sewing toolbox! Happy Festive season to you and to your followers – and thank you to the sponsors, also, for the generous giveaway opportunity.

  14. Kelly says:

    I would love to be entered! I’ve become adept at marking seam allowances with a gauge, but I have a feeling these are some of those tools that make you wonder how you could have lived so primitively before. Happy holidays!

  15. Laurel says:

    Oooh, awesome rulers! I’d probably get the 5/8″ one, though I actually use 1/2″ seam allowances a lot. Decisions, decisions!

  16. My Sewing Suite says:

    These rulers look like they would save so much time and make marking seam allowances easier. I would use the 1/2 or 5/8″ . Thanks for the discount code.

  17. Molly says:

    What a great giveaway! I hardly ever use curved rulers; I actually feel like I have more design control when I do free-hand curves. HOWEVER, I really hate adding seam allowances, especially to curves. I mean, who doesn’t?! So, I would absolutely love one of these beauties.
    Also, the blog snow is adorable!

  18. Irene says:

    I would love to have one of those tools, especially the wheel (really, sometimes I think that I get more pleasure out of using my patternmaking rulers and tools than of seeing my garment finished). Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Jessica says:

    Those templates look amazing–thanks for the discount code! I usually add my seam allowances by eye as I cut my Burdas, but being more accurate would definitely be a good thing!

  20. Chris Johnson says:

    These tools sound wonderfully useful. Please, add my name to the giveaway.

    By the way, welcome to Seattle. I am on Bainbridge. You may already know this, but the oldest fabric store in the state, Esther’s, is on the island. Even though it’s small, the quality and variety of both apparel and quilting fabric is exceptional. Well worth a trip over, and it’s walking distance from the ferry.

    Hello from the other side of the sound! I’ve been following your blog for just a few weeks, so welcome to Seattle(although I’m actually on Bainbridge Island).Glad to see you met Maris and joined ASG! I’ve been a member for years, the retreats are fantastic as are the educational events. Anyhoo, I enjoy your posts and I too just picked up knitting again. your blog also inspired me to finally start one of my own!

  22. Tracy Cooper-Posey says:

    I’ve been seeing these curves everywhere! I used to have a French curve, but it has disappeared (I suspect one of my kids broke it and got rid of the evidence). These new curves with the seam allowance built in would be so useful!

  23. Nadine in NC says:

    Thank you for offering this giveaway! Please enter me in the drawing. I mostly sew with Burda magazine patterns so these would prove extremely useful for me. I know I’m old school but I mostly still add 5/8″ seam allowances to all my patterns except necklines.

  24. Womble says:

    Please enter me. I’ve never seen these things before except on your blog, but I find the curve ruler I got from sew easy invaluable, especially for alterations. I like to work in imperial for my own patterns, especially as my machine and equipment almost all pre-date metrication (in this country, anyway), but mostly of the time I’m using BurdaStyle patterns, so I guess it doesn’t make that much difference. It isn’t hard to convert between them, so I don’t mind which one I get.

  25. Abbe says:

    Ooh great giveaway! I’m new to clothes sewing after being (and continuing to be) a quilter for 12 years. Pardon the pin but it’s a learning curve!!!
    Thanks,
    Abbe

  26. Barbara J says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway. Anything that can help me reach the goal of making more professional looking garments would be terrific.

  27. PendleStitches says:

    I’d love to be entered into this giveaway, please. I’ve got these rulers on my wish list but I’ve been reliably informed that Santa isn’t bringing sewing presents this year…the old meanie! ;-)
