four april giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month Okan Arts is giving away a pair of Kai 8″ professional shears, an East-Meets-West Thread Set from Aurifil, and two yards of hand-dyed yukata cotton from Okan Arts. There are four giveaways, each valued at $147.
Kai Pro Shears are the sharpest scissors you will ever own. On my quilting pal Joe Cunningham’s recommendation, I bought myself a pair and can attest that they’re amazing.
Made with high carbon Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel, Kai Pro Shears will cut YOU as easily as they breeze through fabrics as light as silk and as heavy as leather. So be careful!
STUDIO TIP: I like to keep my pro scissors in their original plastic sleeve. This discourages my family members from grabbing my precious shears for any old household task.
WORKSHOP TIP: I tie a skinny strip of colorful fabric to the big handle of my Pro Shears when I attend a group event. I know that someone could mistakenly pack my scissors and take them home. That one little piece of fabric can save me a whole lotta heartache.Included in the giveaway is the East-Meets-West Thread Set that released at the same time as my book, East-Meets-West Quilts: Explore Improve with Japanese-Inspired Designs. The Aurifil Thread Set with ten small spools (220 yards) of 50wt cotton thread celebrates the colors of yukata cottons in three shades of indigo and seven brights.Two yards of Japanese yukata cotton are also included in this giveaway. The hand-dyed slate-blue fabric features blue orchids with a hint of pale pink and curious dragonflies. The vintage fabric measures just over 14″ wide.THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Dawn N of Ephata WA, Deborah D of Silver Spring MD, Wendy F of Palmdale CA, and Ruth F of Seattle WA.
