**PLEASE NOTE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING**
Before Christmas a lovely lady and reader of my blog Wendy contacted me with a bit of a dilemma, here's what she wrote:
'Today I've been rethinking my future sewing plans and have cleared out my small pattern stash. I have 13 patterns (most used, some not) that I know I will never use, they are all women's clothing. Sadly here in Luxembourg we have no charity shops to which I can donate them and I have no sewing community either.
Being a follower of your blog I know that you are involved in the sewing community in Brighton and give classes etc. I wonder if you, your students or your favourite charity shop could use these patterns.'
After some emailing back and forth, we agreed that the best way for all these lovely patterns to reach a new owner who would really want to use them would be to hold a giveaway. Wendy has no blog of her own (yet!) so we agreed to host the giveaway here on my blog, and she will very kindly post the patterns to one winner who lives anywhere in the EU completely free of charge! Damn, there's a very lucky potential winner out there right now...

As mentioned above, all these patterns will be re-homed to one single lucky recipient. To enter, let Wendy and I know why you'd like to receive these patterns in the comment section below. If I can't access your email address within two clicks of the mouse, please include it in your entry comment. Email addresses will not be used for anything other than to contact you if you are the winner of this giveaway. This giveaway is open to residents of EU countries only and the winner will receive all the sewing patterns completely free of charge. The giveaway entry period will close at midnight GMT Sunday 20th January 2013 and the winner will be chosen and contacted by Wednesday 23rd January. Good luck, my pattern-loving friends!
