Minerva Craft Prize Draw

Can you imagine my excitement when these two huge boxes arrived from Minerva Crafts?

As I mentioned in my previous post I was lucky enough to win the Minerva Craft Meet-up Prize Draw. So... what came in the prize package, I hear you say? 

Well, there was a brand new sewing machine from Janome, a Prym storage trolley and a  big Hemline haberdashery bundle worth a grand total of around £600. I am still having a hard time believing that I have won it all. I am super excited about everything in the prize bundle. I don't want to go though everything but here are a few of my favorites.
Janome CXL301
I have heard great things about this Janome CXL301 sewing machine. My mum tells me that it is the same machine that she used at her quilting class. It certainly did a fab job of tackling the intricate piecing and quilting through all those layers.
I might be veggie but I can still love ham and sausage!
When I saw this tailor's sausage and ham from Hemline in the box I nearly did a happy dance (I was in the office so it wasn't really appropriate)! It seems a little sad to be so excited about a couple of saw dust filled blobs but I have heard such rave reviews about these, that been looking at buying/making a pair of these for months now. I'm sure that all the sewists out there understand my excitement. 





















Check out this trolley from Prym! It carries everything I would possibly want to travel with and has plenty room left to spare. The prize also included a Hemline sewing machine bag which fits my machine perfectly and it has a great pocket in the front for the foot pedal and power cable. With these two I can sew anywhere now.

I also received all of these wonderful Hemline goodies too. I feel very lucky.

A massive thank you to Minerva Crafts, Janome, Hemline and Prym for supporting the prize draw. Also, a big thanks to Vicki from Minerva Crafts, who made sure everything was delivered safely and did a fantastic job during the Meet-up!

Finally, if you are interested in seeing more of the purple spotty dress I am wearing, I will be talking about it in an upcoming post. So, remember to follow me so you can read all about it.
