Join our Heirloom Blog Tour! Part 1 & a HUGE GIVEAWAY! **Giveaway Closed**

Welcome to our first ever Blog Tour! In this post we will cover Part 1: General information and Terms. Giveaway information is at the bottom of this post. **Note: The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered and we hope you continue to enjoy the blog tour!**


In Sew Beautiful issue #132, we feature a beautiful heirloom camisole (pictured above) that we recreated from an antique nightgown. In the magazine article, "Vintage Inspiration," we give you basic instructions for constructing it, but we wanted to go one step further and take time out to teach the basic heirloom sewing techniques needed to create such a garment. To do so, we have filmed a series of video classes, and we have paired with 5 other fabulous sewing blogs to help get the word out about heirloom sewing in the form of a Blog Tour. Each of our blog sponsors has graciously offered to host a video class on these different techniques. Thank you to our friends at Sew, Mama, Sew!, CraftyPod, La Sewista, Southern Matriarch, and Quality Time for partnering with us!


Come along with us as we teach you how easy these techniques are! Click here to learn more about our Heirloom Sewing Blog Tour and for links to the rest of the tour stops! We hope you enjoy the videos.

In this post, we will kick off the tour with a brief introduction to heirloom sewing terms and materials, and we will introduce you to the special sewing supplies you need to get started with heirloom techniques. (This class has been broken into 3 parts.)







All of the supplies discussed in the general information videos (with the exception of the sewing machine presser feet; contact your local dealer) are available from our online store at store.marthapullen.com. To celebrate our blog tour and to encourage new and experienced heirloom stitchers alike, we are offering a special Blog Tour discount code worth 25% off of your order at our online store! Discount code is BLOGTOUR and this offer expires October 31, 2010. There is no minimum order required. Applies to regular priced items only; excludes pleaters.

To continue on the blog tour, visit our landing page for links to the rest of our stops! Join us tomorrow for Part 2: Pattern Notes.

And now for the giveaway! Including our blog, each of our tour stops are offering a giveaway worth over $160. That means 6 chances to win! Included in the prize package is:
  • a complete kit of materials for the camisole through sizes 3X
  • the book from which we drafted our pattern, Sleepwear Especially for You
  • the new issue of SB #132, which includes the camisole instructions and templates
  • a brand new June Tailor Shape 'n Press board
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post -- be sure to include your name and email address so that we may contact you if you are the winner. Entries will remain open until Thursday, August 19th and the winner will be announced on August 20th, 2010.

Thanks for joining the blog tour and we hope to see you at the rest of our video classes!

  36. What a marvelous idea! Even though I have been sewing for more years than many of your readers have lived, I find that I can always learn a new technique, a better way to do something, a really clever shortcut, etc., which helps keep me young. Thanks for this tour. I'm so looking forward to it!

    One question: I watched the videos on this post. One of them recommended the air-erasable pen. A friend of mine who is a textile specialist has told several of us that it may not be wise to use these, as there has not been enough time to evaluate the effect of the chemicals left behind on the textiles. She feels strongly that, unless something is washed out completely, there may be enough of a residue to cause finer fabrics to deteriorate where the chemicals remain. Do you have any feeling about this? The product seems terribly handy, but, if I’m making something I want to last for a long time, am I safe in using it?

    Thanks again for the neat tour idea. I love your blog and I am also addicted o your Tweets!

Thank you.

  162. Martha & Kathy,
    I received my Newsletter today and followed your suggestion to visit this Blog. This site is awesome! Besides updating my Heirloom sewing skills, I also need to update my computer skills to keep up with all the new technology going on in the Martha Pullen Company and Sew Beautiful Magazine. Thank you all for showing me just how exciting and wonderful it is to be sewing such beautiful projects. You all have truly changed my life by sharing your knowledge and sewing skills. Also, I have met so many wonderful people and made many friends while attending the School of Art Fashion and Teacher Licensing classes. I am looking forward to all the projects and Sew Beautiful magazines that will be coming. Thank you so much.
