To enter: Post a comment, preferably answering the question (see below).
The question: What makes you want to buy a pattern? Or, if you’ve never bought a pattern in your life (it’s okay to admit it, I buy patterns very rarely), what would make you buy a pattern? Especially if it’s a designer you don’t know and is very new to the scene?
Me, I don’t know if I’d buy a pattern from a new indie designer unless I reeeeeally wanted it. Things that would likely attract my attention and make me want to buy it would include a new technique, an unusual way of constructing something, or anything along those lines. If it wasn’t super unique, then I’d probably only buy it if it was really classy and I could see myself using it often. I’m a practical kind of girl, and I don’t want to buy something I won’t use. If I bought a pattern, I would be very very likely to make it.
I haven’t bought any individual patterns, but I have lots of magazines (and one e-zine). I have a few books too, but they’re mostly gifts (that I lurrve. My friends have good taste!)
The prizes: The two winners will each receive both Wood Lily and Hanataba patterns. The random generator picks one, and I pick my favorite comment/story.
The giveaway will be open until Wednesday, June 29th 2011, 10PM PDT. Any comments after that will not be counted.
