Sewing Machine GIVEAWAY!!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

To celebrate my return home (I'm so dramatic, lol) I have decided that I need to stop hoarding sewing machines, it's a serious problem for me so because I just bought a new machine for myself and one for a friends daughter I decided that I would continue the charity! I would be feel so much better about my new purchase if I gifted my old machine to one of you fabulous followers!!

Let me tell you about her ;-) This is Janome Sew Precise, she has been with me for several years and has been a great machine! She is of course slightly worn as I have used her a lot but she is in great condition and sews like a dream. Continue reading for the giveaway rules.....
 I will be including a dvd of myself showing the new owner how to thread the machine and its features. If you want a chance at winning my own personal sewing machine this is what you must do:

1. Leave a comment (you must leave a name)
2. Twitter this post and add the following #mimigstyle (make sure to mention @mimigstyle)
3. Share the post/images on Pinterest or Facebook (whichever you have or both)
4. Wait patiently until Thursday to find out if you won!

Good Luck!

xoxo

  12. Mimi,
    I have a question. Do you have to do all for a chance to win or at least one of the 4?
    I do not have a facebook, twitter or pinterest account. Does that mean I do not have a chance of winning?
    Thanks,

  110. You have a great idea I love to you would help someone out by giving them a machine.

    I myself would love to have the sewing machine. I just started sewing and up cycling my clothes.

    The one problem I have is that every machine I get brakes. it not that I break them myself it’s when I set it up the lopper broke or the needle keeps hitting the plate.
    I have went throw three machines so far and iam hoping that if you give me yours then my luck has turned because you know it works so i will not have a problem with it.

    Whoever wins this is a lucky person and have fun choosing your person

    Hi, I'm trying to win this for my 14year old daughter... a slave to fashion spends all her waking ours creating on her sketch pad or her making endless samples for her dolls. Yes she still plays with dolls they make the perfect clients/models. I got her a second hand sewing machine from the thrift store, but she is always shouting at it, my guess its not doing what its supposed to. In any event, id appreciate the chance for her to glean from your expertise, since i am in no way creatively inclined. Even if she could win a DVD tutorial on sewing id be happy!

    Thanks for the opportunity

    Here is my pinterest page so you can check my profile out. :)

  145. I just found your site and I love it! I know I'll be back a lot to see what you're up to. I would love to win the sewing machine as well. I've just renewed my interest in sewing and my poor old machine bit the dust. I've tweeted and pinned, so now I've commented. :) Wish me luck!

  151. Wow! How generous you are to give away one of your machines. I have my workhorse, but would love something a little lighter to take to classes and stuff. Now, if winning only meant we got a little of your talent too, lol.

  152. This is a lovely thing to do. I have been wanting to learn to sew for a long time. I even took a class! Unfortunately, economics are a little tough right now so that isn't an option. However, some one said they would teach me when I got a machine! So, crossing my finger!

  153. Hey Miss Mimi! I would love to win your sewing machine! Since finding your blog, I have become inspired and motivated to make my own clothes and God willing making a career of it. I am 17 years old and very curvy and often have trouble finding clothes that fit me perfectly, but with the opportunity to make my own with my own "special touch" would solve the problem. Hopefully, some of your magic will still be left with the machine! Hope I win and thank you for the opportunity!!! <3

  165. Wow! This giveaway excites me. I started out on a DIY yesterday without any sewing machine and it was really hard. My sister and I are planning to go with an online store with some of our DIY projects. And the only thing stopping us is the lack of money for a sewing machine. Ofcourse our parents wouldn't provide us that money and it so happens, you are giving one a way! Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity, Mimi! You inspire us all.

  170. I have been wanting to learn to sew for the longest! I go shopping with a certain vision and I hate when I can't find the pieces, so why not learn to make them myself? It's my summer 2012 project and I'd love to have this machine! You are such an inspiration.

  179. Hi Mimi!

    I am a military wife of 5 years and a stay at home mom to two very beautiful girls! I have been crafting for about a year now and have and have had so much fun doing it! I make bows and tutu's for my girls and friends that have little girls as well! I have always wanted a sewing machine to start making little dresses and skirts for them( and things for myself as well) but didn't have the funds to get one! I'm so excited to learn how to sew and I promise you that I will put it to great use! Thanks again for sharing this awesome opportunity!
