Project Threadworthy

Winning sewing machines, fabrics, even trips to New York City or Paris are not uncommon ways to entice unsuspecting sewers to enter online contests. Who wouldn’t like more fabric to stitch, a better machine to play with, or even an all-expenses excursion to a town where the shopping is better than wherever you live? This is a long way to say this is the first contest we’ve ever heard of to snare….drum roll…a box of thread. But it’s not just any thread—it’s an 18-spool collection of Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP general purpose sewing thread, a $45 retail value. Yes, 10 lucky winners will receive this, courtesy of Coats and Burdastyle. Here’s a link for the sweepstakes. Naturally, Burdastyle has a whole page on picking out the right you-know-what. Get stitching, the deadline is Oct. 28
