Drawstrings {giveaway}


Today’s giveaway is from Wanda, the seamstress behind Drawstrings! You may also know Wanda from her blog, Re-inventing Mother. She’s a regular on the Yarn Along as well!  Wanda creates the most beautiful drawstring bags, and I have been lucky enough to receive a couple of them.  They make perfect knitting project bags, and mine can often be seen peeking out of my Yarn Along photos each week.  While I love using mine to hold knitting projects, Drawstrings come in many sizes and have many different uses. Wanda introduced herself here and talked about how Drawstrings was born earlier this year.  Today, she’s sharing the latest news from her shop!


It’s been almost nine months since Drawstrings was born!  In those months I have been gifted with incredible people who have made this dream come true.  Those people are you. Sales from Drawstrings have been awesome and I continue to marvel at the reviews.  The story of how this all came to be is here in the original post by Ginny and I continue to pray for Elizabeth.


In great news, my own Elizabeth ( my oldest daughter) is joining me in making Drawstrings a team effort.  Elizabeth has a degree in Landscape Architecture from Texas Tech University and is also a certified Texas teacher.  She teaches Art to first through sixth graders.  Best of all, she is the mother of three of my grandchildren; Lilah, Evelyn, and Luke.   Her gift of color and design ( she has new ideas already!!) will be yet another gift to the shop.  Welcome her please!



Together, our goal is to provide a custom bag that can be used in many ways.  Many of you use them for your knitting and projects, but with all the varied sizes, the uses are infinite.  From jewelry, rosaries, shoes, books,backpacks, dance, laundry, and gift bags, we provide a quality product that is custom to you.  Our bags are not mass produced unless you order them.  Your purchase is one of a kind!  Quality fabrics are used in each bag and I am constantly searching for unique fabrics.


For today’s giveaway, Drawstrings is offering one winner the knitting themed bag pictured above.  In addition, they are offering a 20% discount on all purchases through November 1.  Use the code GINNY07 at checkout to receive the discount.

For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post!  For a second chance, “like” Drawstrings on Facebook and leave a second comment letting me know you have done so!

Comments are closed and the winner is Taryn, who commented, “Such neat bags and beautiful fabric!”

Thanks, Drawstrings!
