Sponsored Blog Hop - Colonial Needle (Now Closed)

Thank you so much for your interest.....this giveaway is now closed!

Welcome to the Colonial Needle Blog Hop! We have assembled a super panel of bloggers for your enjoyment! And we all have wonderful notions from the Colonial Needle Company to give away!

(Padsworth wanted to check out the giveaway prizes . . . excuse me, whilst I get him out of the box.)

Colonial Needle is one of the companies that sponsored the awesome Wantobe Quilter campaign last year, over at Sew We Quilt. They have an incredible array of notions, needles, tools, and even sewing baskets. You can check out their web site at this link, and you can always click on their badge on the sidebar here at Lilypadquilting, too.

Here's some notes from their web site --- you'll be amazed at the variety of products you can find there!

Our extensive collection of hand and machine needles, beading needles, weaving and specialty needles, and even industrial and specialty needles is unrivaled.
In addition to needles and notions, we have felting tools and wools, fun and easy felting kits, knitting needles, gift sets and helpful accessories.
Sewers, quilters and needleworkers will also enjoy our sewing and quilting notions and supplies including fasteners, hoops, measuring and cutting tools and pins of all sizes and styles.
If crafting is your passion, you can choose from an assortment of glues and colorful writing and craft pens for all of your craft projects.

Personally, I think the most wonderful things on their site are the "Pebbles" - but I bet you'll find your own favorites there.
Let me tell you a little about the Pebbles.  If you have reached into your sewing bag or tote just once and come out scratched, and possibly bleeding, then you need a Pebble! (Grin)   These little gems are packages of needles that close right up and protect you and the contents of your tote. You can get them in all types of needles, and our bloggers will be telling you more about those as the week goes along.

They were incredibly generous with their sponsorship, and I was able to divide up the items and ask some wonderful bloggers to help me out.  Here is the schedule of our hop:

I sure hope you are still with me, because we'll have a giveaway here, too! Here is a package of prizes that TWO lucky winners will receive:

 Safety pins, tape measure, magnet, seam ripper, needles and more!
And they'll also receive one of these Colonial Needle Pebbles, too!

So do you want to win? Well, we love our followers, so please leave us a comment if you follow, for one entry in the giveaway.  For another chance to win, tell me if you use a thimble --- whether you are hand-quilting, embroidering, or whatever; do you use a thimble?

We'll leave this one open til Saturday at midnight, and announce the winner on Sunday, April 22!

Good luck!
