Wow! How can it already be May? Is anyone else freaked out by this? Anyway…
We have a VERY exciting post for you guys today! We have collaborated with one of our favorite local crafters, Sarah Hoover of Pin & Thread Co. to bring your our very first GIVEAWAY!!!
Sarah got started with embroidery/sewing in high school when she, like many, took a beginners sewing class. She really enjoyed learning to sew, but hadn’t done it in awhile until a little over a year ago, when her husband Josh (after some heavy hinting on her part) bought her a sewing machine!
In her own words:
I started with making pillows. Last June, I taught myself the back stitch (very simple) and started doing embroidery. I was following a few people on Instagram that really inspired me to want to learn (@gulushthreads, @mytrashandtreasure, @emptydotroom). I was sewing a lot of pillows and we were running out of room to keep them so I ended up switching to banners after awhile. I had had a few friends and family members request pillows and embroideries back in August so I decided to make a little business out of it, that’s how I came up with pin and thread co. Sewing can also turn into an expensive hobby so I figured if I could sell a few things here and there that might help even things out. But it has mostly been, throughout the last year, a creative outlet for me.
We’ve wanted to do a giveaway for awhile but wanted it to be something really special, and we couldn’t be happier with this banner! It is all the things we love: earthy, simple, locally made, a message we feel strongly about, and a spring/floral theme! Sarah did an AMAZING job and we are SO excited to give this beautiful banner to one of you lovely readers!
So now you’re probably all wondering, how the heck do I get my hands on this thing?! Well.. I’m glad you asked.
