Daily Tips & More: We will sharing things that we hope are encouraging throughout the challenge. Things we share will be added primarily on the Sew Powerful Facebook Page and the Sew Powerful Instagram account, but we'll also add items to the weekly contest post (again - this week that's this post you're reading right now) so check back often. Our general schedule (but please be gracious if this changes) is to share the following:

Entry Tool: We use a tool called Rafflecopter, that allows you to enter multiple ways - to win the prize. Look for the Rafflecopter Log-In tool just under this paragraph and follow the prompts to enter. It has all our official eligibility terms and conditions (sorry, for legal reasons, we can only run this contest in the U.S., we wish we could do it more broadly).

My mom taught me how to sew back in 8th grade. Then God blessed me with 4 girls and I have been sewing for them and now I get to sew for my grandchildren. I have 9 grandkids and every year for Christmas for the past 23yrs. I have sewn them all pajamas and they so look forward to see what I have created for them.

Frances Blockley - April 1, 2020

very young I wanted to sew so I could have a larger wardrobe Mom was my inspiration

Elizabeth Alvarado - March 31, 2020

I think is so cool when anyone wins something, having said this. I started sew when I was six year sold, my cousin had a barbie and I did not even know what a barbie was. We sat down in front her porch and she started by showing me how to hold a needle and thread. Then she showed me how to make a barbie hat, skirt and so on. I never stopped sewing sense then. I took home-ec in 8th grade, my teacher was amazed that I had made a beautiful dress and she put in the glass cabinet in the hall of our school. I made an A+ that year. Of course my mom was my inspiration through the years she could sew anything without a pattern. She had that old trundle machine. Hooray for MOM:)

I’m excited about the Sewlation Challenge because Sewing is my happy place. It keeps me focused and calm and gives me the power to accomplish beautiful things, especially in these troubled times.

Barbara Hoover hoover - March 31, 2020

I really wish these give aways weren’t so difficult. I quit trying to win a doll because of it. Above clearly states there is a rafflecoptor just under the paragraph. There is nothing

Susan - March 30, 2020

I am grateful for the help you give others and your prayers.

I have been sewing since about 10, so over 60 years. My grandmother used to order fabric bundles from Montgomery Wards. They contained a variety of fabric end pieces with at least one or two pieces at least a yard. It was like Christmas when we opened them. My imagination ran wild with the possibilities! One of my favorite creations was a dress I made with a drapery remnant that Grandma gave me and a piece of leftover fabric that my Mom had. O received many compliments…

Sewing has been a big part of my life: clothing for myself and my children, garments and costumes for others, as well as wedding and prom dresses – drawing most of the patterns.

I would love to win this weeks prize (or any of them) to continue to create, as well as help others.

Laurie Kinzer - March 30, 2020

So excited to be a part of this challenge

Anne - March 30, 2020

I have been sewing for 71 years. Since I was two years old and my grandmother let me sit in her lap at her machine while she did alterations. Sewing has brought me such comfort through out my life. I am so happy I can now use my skills to help these young ladies achieve their goals through education.

Jan Fox - March 30, 2020
