four december giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month’s giveaway features four vintage Japanese yukatas (casual cotton kimonos). Each is tailored using traditionally hand-dyed yukata cotton—three for women, one for a man.
Big questions to be determined if you win one of these fabulous finds: Do you wear it? Do you hang it above your bed? Or, do you cut it up and use as feature fabric in your next quilt?
To participate in the December giveaway, just answer this question in the Comment Box below: What brings you joy in the holiday season? ALSO include a number (1 to 4 ) to signify which yukata you want.
The drawing will be held at midnight PST on December 31, 2015. Four lucky winners will be chosen with a random number drawing. The prizes will then be shipped anywhere in the world. (International winners are responsible for customs.)
THE DRAWING IS NOW CLOSED. The winners are Karen M of Longview WA, Bee D of Owensville, OH and Garen S of Norwalk CT.
This weekend: To see more vintage yukatas and wonderful Japanese textile treats, stop by JaponTex in La Conner WA: Friday 4-7, Saturday 11-5, Sunday 11-5.
The participating artisans at this FREE holiday event: Sylvia Pippen of Sylvia Pippen Design, Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts, Mary Pettus of HeARTful Gifts, Denny Fox of Quilting Foxes and Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors.
