Blog Birthday giveaway - we're 5!


Happy 5th blog birthday to us! It's hard to believe but we're almost 1000 posts in now. Back in November 2007, I was so bamboozled my the concept of blogging that I didn't even know how to upload a photo to accompany my first post.

To celebrate, we're giving away our last available length of Fiorentina (1.2m - see it made up here), a hard copy pattern of your choice (choose from either the Lily Linen Dress, Chloe Pants or Mia Tunic), and a beautiful pair of 210mm Japanese dressmaking scissors.

The giveaway is open to readers near and far. To enter, just leave a comment with your sewing wishes for 2013. If you're commenting anonymously, PLEASE don't forget to include your email address. Facebook followers can also be eligible by leaving a comment over here. Comments close on Mon 3rd Dec 11:59pm AEST and we'll announce the randomly chosen winner shortly after.

Thanks for reading us over the last five years and we hope you stick around for the next five. Now go forth, comment and good luck!

  2. I want to make several quilts, work on not sewing so perfect, add some items to my personal wardrobe that actually work and are trendy, maybe even make my daughter something!

  3. I am hoping to get more sewn for my sons in 2013. This year has been all about my daughter and myself so it is time to give my boys some home-made clothes before they stop feeling the love for wearing mummy's sewing.

  4. My sewing plans for 2013 is to create several pieces of clothing that fit me well and are beautifully finished and work together to form a wardrobe. I aim to have 5 really beautiful pieces of clothing by the end of next year - which will be an achievement as I have only been sewing for six months!

  7. Can't believe it's been five years. My sewing wish for 2013 would be for more hours in the day...but realistically, probably trying out patterns from more independent pattern designers.
    Congrats, guys!

  9. I would like to continue on with my slow-sewing - learning new skills and doing the best I can with each garment. I would like to increase my challenges and attempt some more difficult items - There are a couple of Burda Style jackets I would love to tackle.

  15. Happy fifth birthday to your blog Colette and colleagues. You've come such a long way from not knowing how to upload a photo five years ago: "Sew Tessuti" is fabulous, very professional and one of my most favourite blogs. As soon as I see a new post from you in my Reader I have to open it immediately! Well done, many thanks, and long may "Sew Tessuti" continue to inspire us all.

  50. "You've come a long way baby"!! Happpy Birthday. The 2013 wishes started in August when I saw the lovely Mia blog. To nail that one, and take it with me to uk in March 2013 to see my lovely daughter, as part of a "travel" trans-seasonal wardrobe is my aim. So wonderful to be able to get non-seasonal fabric, but fabulous fabrics from Tessutis. I continue to learn from, and be inspired by your talented customers, and your inspirational fabrics. thank you

  73. My sewing goals for 2013, are to continue to slow down and focus on quality. I would like to take another class from Kenneth King and Susan Khalje and continue to follow couture techniques that can even be used with as much as a simple sundress. Our skills must continue to be refined!!
    I love Tessuti fabrics. If you had opened back in the 80's I would never have left my beautiful country !!

  76. Congratulations! Every morning I check my Reader to see if there is a Tessuti blog entry! I hope to become more centered in my sewing in 2013, to enjoy the moment rather than in a rush to get it done...maybe even grow to enjoy the hand sewing parts of projects.

  84. For 2013 my wish is to win the lottery so I can attend every sewing lesson of my dreams, buy all the (Tessuti) fabric I desire and leave work and spend as long as I want sewing. It would also need to involve buying a house by the sea so my sewing room looked over the beach, and several extra rooms for me to store all the fabric and patterns I want. I will also venture into the world of sewing lingerie so I can get a comfortable bra and undies. Is that too much to ask?

    ReplyDelete
  85. My wish for 2013 is to be more consistent about sewing instead of bursts of activity!

  89. Haven't those five years flown - congratulations on your wonderful and informative blog. In 2013 my dream would be to have time to make some clothes for myself, as well as finish some quilts lying guiltily in my sewing room cupboard. Very indulgent I know, but there it is.

    ReplyDelete

  97. I hope that my daughter has a place in daycare for at least a half day a week next year, so I have some energy left to do 'me' things - like sewing! With an early walking baby, come end of day, I have nothing left for hobbies.

  102. Congrats on 5 years
    My sewing goals for 2013 involve:
    1. getting a new machine to replace my 1950s ear singer sewing machine that can't cope with sheer slippery fabrics (but is great for leather).
    2. writing a list of "sewing skills to acquire" and slowly working through this, such as "perfect the creation of buttonholes"
    3. make a couple of amazing outfits and a couple of comfortable ones for my partner and I.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Congrats on 5 years!! I have many many quilting patterns in my head but would love to expand my very small range of clothing patterns that I actually make from and be more brave to try new things. Have more faith in myself that to try is better than to do nothing!

As a proffesional dressmaker, my sewing wish for 2013, is that everyone get as much joy, sense of achievement from sewing as I do, and see the happiness a well fitting garment can give.

  126. I am living temporarily at the moment, so all my fabric and sewing machines are in boxes. I can't wait till I move and unpack them in the new year - just sewing anything will be fabulous. While I'm not sewing much now, my mental sewing wish list is growing out of control, so it will be good to start tackling it :) Congratulations on 5 years blogging - I love reading your blog and seeing all the great creations!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Happy blogthday!
    My sewing wish for 2013 is to do more of it! I have just gotten back into sewing, and have made some simple skirts and shorts for my son, but I want to do more - zippers! Facings! Commercial patterns! Silk! Stretch jersey! So many exciting sewing opportunities, I hope my sewing wish includes some child-free time in which to achieve it!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Happy 5th birthday! After four years of living in a tiny apartment with no room to sew, I am lucky enough to have a separate room for sewing. My main wish is not to forget how lucky I am to have it, and my goal is to sew at least one new item a month (for myself or for others). Also, I want to get better at draping and patternmaking.
