Welcome to DAY 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas celebration!
For our 2nd Day Of Christmas giveaway, we are doing a GIVEAWAY of one $100 Sewing Machine Plus Gift Card to one lucky winner. The gift card can be used towards any item available on the Sewing Machine Plus website. Woot, Woot!
Maybe you'll use your gift card to buy an accessory to go with your favorite machine or a new tool to make sewing even easier! Sewing With Cinnamon has several courses that highlight specific machines, specific features, and specific accessories! For these courses we frequently bring in guest instructors that have a high level of expertise in a specific machine or area. It's a treat to bring these courses to you, I always learn so much too!
One of our most popular courses, Serger Basics is taught by my friend, Donna Kinley of DKinley Designs! Donna is an expert instructor and has contributed towards many of the Sewing With Cinnamon courses. You can find a collection of courses that feature her videos in the new Sewing With Cinnamon format too!
Here's a sneak peek at the course:
