I want to try something and need your help!
First, there are a handful of spots open in my 1930s fabric swap. It’s a great chance to start or add to a stash of 1930s repro prints. They’re super cute and fun! All you have to do is either buy a yard of fabric, cut it into 28 5″x10″ pieces and mail them to me or pay a flat amount and I’ll take care of all of that for you. You will not only get 28 different 1930s repro prints but also a special 10% off code for Fort Worth Fabric Studio good through next Wednesday (September 17th). I’d really love for the swap to be filled by other people. If not, I will take care of the remaining spots myself. One can’t have too much 1930s. To join us all you have to do is go here where you’ll find the details and a link to the sign up form.
You guys are the best! The swap is now full. Hooray!
On to the business at hand. I’ve been using Rafflecopter to accept giveaway entries. In the past I added a bunch of options to earn extra entries — liking, following,etc. The last giveaway I did I used Rafflecopter and had only one simple click to enter. I know some people don’t like the widget and/or have trouble with it working for them.
What I want to do is try something different. A simple form to submit your name and email address. At first I thought of doing what many do by having entries be the comments on the post. I think the name and email address form is easier. No coming up with a comment to type or answering some question.
I’m giving away one set of the 5″x10″ cuts of 1930s fabrics from the current round of the swap. It will include 28 different repro prints. Now, this round won’t be wrapping up until the beginning of October. So, the winner will have to wait until then for me to mail out their prize. I also can’t show you exactly what you will win since the swap is currently going on and most participants haven’t made their choice yet. You can see what has been posted so far to the Flickr group here.
As an example I’m showing you part of my personal stash. 1930s repro prints are colorful and have flowers, shapes and animals. Sometimes children — like nursery rhyme characters — and fruit.
For a chance to win a set from the swap, just submit your name and email address below. One entry per person. It’s open worldwide. I’ll accept entries through Thursday, September 18th. The next day a winner will be randomly selected and then I’ll contact that lucky duck by email.
Use the form right here to type your name and email address and then submit to enter the giveaway. Let’s see how it goes and thank you for trying this out for me.
The giveaway is now closed!
