Holiday Giveaway with SA Curve Ruler!

December 12, 2013

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 like the snow..No white christmas here in Sydney, Aus I am afraid – just sun sun sun. Oh and the humidity..yuck

    Anyway.. put my my name down in the draw. Been looking at these as I have currently been using a lot of patterns that are in imperial and these would be handy..

    Keep well.

    Wow! Great rulers! I would like those, they look great! If I win I would like them in Metric.

    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.

  8. December 12, 2013 4:34 am

    I’d love to be entered in the giveaway! I have been eyeing the measuring wheel for a while now. :)

    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.

  12. December 12, 2013 4:44 am

    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.

  13. December 12, 2013 4:54 am

    Great giveaway . . . thanks for the opportunity.

  14. December 12, 2013 5:10 am

    Would love to be in your giveaway. Would love to win, thanks.

  15. December 12, 2013 5:17 am

    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.

    December 12, 2013 5:24 am

    Ooh! pick me! I would especially love the measuring wheel for measuring armscye/armholes, that sounds brilliant!

  17. December 12, 2013 5:25 am

    How wonderful! Thank you Amy! I’d love the 5/8 and imperial! Thanks a million for the opportunity!

    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!

  19. December 12, 2013 5:34 am

    Either sounds like an interesting addition to my 2014 sewing projects, in Imperial of course! Thank you!

    December 12, 2013 6:40 am

    Those would be just fabulous tools to have! Also, love the blog snow. We don’t get snow, just cold.

  31. December 12, 2013 6:44 am

    Ooh, those look like they’d be so handy! Especially for Burda pattern tracing. The blog snow is really cute!

  32. Katie H. permalink

    December 12, 2013 6:53 am

    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.

  35. December 12, 2013 6:58 am

    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

  36. December 12, 2013 7:05 am

    Yes, yes, I want to enter! These rulers seem so useful! I would use them exactly for what you are using them for.

    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.

  38. December 12, 2013 7:17 am

    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!

  39. December 12, 2013 7:29 am

    Awesome giveaway! I’ve been wanting to try these rulers out for awhile now. Thanks!

  40. December 12, 2013 7:32 am

    Oh yes, please enter me too! I’ve been yearning for the nifty SA rulers and wheel every since I first saw them.

  41. December 12, 2013 7:45 am

    What an awesome ruler! I would totally use the 3/8″ or the 5/8″ a lot. I currently use two pencils taped together and it works but not that great.

    Happy Holidays snowy blog!

  42. December 12, 2013 7:48 am

    Wow. These look so handy!

    And a Merry Christmas to you, lovely lady, :)

  43. Laurel permalink
    December 12, 2013 8:02 am

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

  44. Gina permalink

    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.

  46. Molly permalink
    December 12, 2013 9:04 am

    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!

  47. December 12, 2013 9:27 am

    Oh, I would love these! And I haven’t forgotten about a fabric trip- as soon as I can shake this stupid cold, I’ll email you :)

    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!

    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.

    December 14, 2013 10:23 am

    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.

  114. December 14, 2013 2:50 pm

    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!!!

    A great giveaway! I too have been eyeing up the 5/8″ curve ruler. The pattern wheel sounds so useful too! Thank you very much x
