La Mia Boutique giveaway

Since today is Valentine’s day I feel it would be the perfect day to give a gift to my readers. I am very honored that you read my blog and I am constantly amazed by all the wonderful comments, advice and generosity from you guys. Also in a dream world I would love to reply to everyone all the time, but, well, life does get in the way sometimes.
But I want to show my gratitude in some way and I know that many of you don’t have access to pattern magazines. So this Friday I picked up two that I hope you will enjoy – the fabulous February issue of La Mia Boutique and a great edition of the German magazine Lea with medium to plus sizes (Euro sizes 42-60). I picked these two because they both got some amazing designs in them and both can be hard to find in many countries. I know some of you crave Patrones too, but the current issue only has patterns for children so I skipped that one. But maybe in the future! First out is La Mia Boutique and on Tuesday I will arrange the giveaway for Lea.

The rules: It is very simple, if you want La Mia Boutique just write “I’m in” in the comment section – and I will draw a name on Monday at 9.00 PM Swedish time (+1 GMT). I will then contact the winner for a postal address and send out the magazine.

The skinny on La Mia Boutique
41 styles – from über trendy to chic and grown up. And a few children’s patterns too.
A wide variety of sizes, both plus and regular.
The instructions are in Italian and you have to add seam allowances.
There are also several recipes in the magazine and even a horoscope for February!

And last but not least some sneak peaks from Lea – that will be up for grabs on Tuesday.

    >>Sue: You are not to late, the deadline is not until tomorrow. I made it long so that folks would have the time to see this thread. But I am pretty blown away by the response already. I am even thinking about sending a link to this post to the LMB publisher and suggest that they start working on a better world wide distribution. There is clearly an interest 🙂
