We had 14 entries for this final week and the winner of the Le Femme fat quarter bundle is :: #4 Vera!

Congrats Vera and thank you SO much Robert Kaufman for generously donating 8 of these fat quarter bundles!!


Another BIG thank you to each of you for sewing along and making this so much fun!   I think everyone has learned and made new friends and had a good time.

I’m grateful to each of you for your participation.   You have offered your encouragement and also helped to trouble shoot errors in the book to help make it better.  Thank you!

One last request, please take a moment to either comment in the Flickr group  or email Rashida if you have any suggestions for helping to make the book even better.

Did you find any errors that were missed?

Is there anything that you would of like to see?  (more photos, more illustrations, etc)

Zakka Style’s author, Rashida, has been active in the discussion group on Flickr and she is trying to collect info to help make future books even better and to let the publishers know what readers want!

She has also posted a wrap up to the sew along, so take a moment to visit with her here.


Before you go, I have a few prize winners left to announce!

Our 4th quarter winner (from all entered projects during weeks 19-24) will receive a complete fat quarter bundle of Rashida’s fabric line Washi from Timeless Treasures!

There were 122 projects entered and the winner is :: #115 Amy Made That! by eamylove

Congrats Amy!!

I’m also going to draw 2 winners for a fat quarter bundle of Le Femme from all of the entries in the Sew Along!

  • Thanks so much for this absolute great sewalong! I learned so much and did so many projects in a short time like never before! I enjoyed everything and every week!

    Thanks too for adding my boxes photo although I was some late this week! I’m soooo glad!

    Hope to join another fun sewalong with you :)))ReplyCancel

  • Oh dear, i can’t believe it is over. I have had such a very good time, Lindsey and have been inspired greatly. You did a wonderful job, hosting this sew along. I have never actually finished one. This is the first time.
    It was a wonderful journey, in which I have learned many many lessons.
    How good of Rashida, to want to make her next book even better and to listen to the people who worked with the book. The projects were lots and lots of fun, but I think the most important part is, to have the patterns tested by herself and a few others. Improvements and mistakes will definitely be found. I know this, since I am a tester. The person I test for, makes perfect patterns. She lets each pattern always be tested by at least 3 people. I am sure there are many people who would be willing to test one or two projects. I would be glad to be a help with that (o:
    Thank you once again, dear Lindsey and also thank you to the wonderful guests who gave their version and visions on a project, the sponsors and all those who encouraged me to go on!
    You were great in solving problems and very open in this whole sew along. I hope that one day you might organize one again. I am already signing up (o:ReplyCancel

  • Thank you and also sponsors! I enjoyed this SAL very much and winning this bundle is the cherry on top! Congrats to others as well. It was fun!ReplyCancel

  • I’m with Simone – just cannot believe we made it all the way through! The sew-along has been great fun and I thank you for all your efforts to make it run smoothly and such a success!ReplyCancel

  • Thank you, Lindsey, for hosting such a great sew-along. This was my first ever, and as I have a tendency to procrastinate I’m quite proud of myself for keeping up! 🙂 My suggestion for the book would be to add more pictures (tutorial style) especially for tricky parts. I loved the book, though, and in fact, it is the ONLY book from which I’ve made every project! I agree with Simone, as well to have several people test the patterns. I’d be more than happy to be included in the testers! Now it’s time to revisit a few of those projects for Christmas sewing.ReplyCancel

  • Thanks again Lindsey for hosting this sew a long, it’s been such good fun.
    Thanks also to the sponsors for their generosity, I was lucky enough to win a prize along the way.ReplyCancel

  • Thanks again Lindsay for putting this together. I had so much fun doing the projects as well as seeing inspiration from my fellow sewalong’ers!ReplyCancel

  • I wish I’d joined earlier, I didn’t get the book until halfway through, I had a lot of fun with the projects I did make, thank you for going through all the effort to co-ordinate this!ReplyCancel

  • I can’t believe I won a giveaway, I’d given up hope! I really enjoyed the SAL, with or without prizes and can’t believe I made 18 out of 24 and stuck it out til the end! Thanks so much Lindsey and AmyReplyCancel

  • Even though I couldn’t participate every week, I enjoyed the Sew-A-Long! It was so nice to “meet” such nice, supportive, like-crafted people and see everyone’s interpretation of the projects!ReplyCancel

  • Lindsey, thank you for organising the links, incentives and allowing us to be showcased each week. Thank you to the guest bloggers and designers for stretching us. Thank you Zakka SAL community for the support and humour as we have journeyed together.ReplyCancel

  • It’s enormous that you are getting ideas from this piece
    of writing as well as from our dialogue made at this time.ReplyCancel

  • Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    great blog!ReplyCancel
