Summer Magazine Giveaway – Cotton Friend

July 29, 2013

So, being terribly ambitious, I said I was going to release a new pattern today. But it was not meant to be. I’m still in the middle of drafting the different sizes and testing out patterns, I have not even started on the video/photo taking yet 🙁

So in the absence of a “real” blog post (so that I can devote more time to my patterns), here’s a Summer magazine giveaway! Cotton Friend Summer Edition 2013 Vol 47. I just reviewed this magazine recently, you can read the magazine review here.

To make it simple for everyone, including myself 🙂 All you have to do is to like my page on Facebook and leave a comment below. One comment per person and only comments left below will be considered as an entry, not facebook comments. Thank you!

The giveaway ends this Thurs 1 August 2013 at 9am, Singapore time, equivalent to:
London (United Kingdom – England) Thursday, 1 August 2013, 02:00:00 BST UTC+1 hour
New York (U.S.A. – New York) Wednesday, 31 July 2013, 21:00:00 EDT UTC-4 hours
Corresponding UTC (GMT) Thursday, 1 August 2013, 01:00:00
(for more time zone conversions

I will pick a winner and announce it on Thursday.

And the winner is! Amanda Lee Matthews! Congratulations Amanda! I will be emailing you soon to get your mailing address.
To the rest of you who didn’t win, thank you all for participating and your new Likes 🙂

Have a great weekend!

  • Blogless Anna July 29, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    I just liked you on Facebook (my real name, not the blog name!). I’d love to win a copy of this magazine. Thanks for the chance.

    My husband will be in Singapore in Sept and I’m putting together a list of Japanese sewing books/magazines I’d like him to try and buy. Any tips on where I should send him looking?

    • Japanese Sewing Books July 29, 2013 at 8:46 pm

      definitely Kinokuniya, especially the main store at Ngee Ann City (which is in the main Orchard Rd shopping area) It is well stocked with all the Japanese sewing books and magazines. There is also a customer service counter where he can just hand them the list and get them to hunt the books down for him. You can check if they are in stock through their bookweb too
      The magazines are not listed in the database though, so he will have to see if they are available in the store.
