Sorry to be late announcing this, things in the shop were a bit crazy in the run up to our last dispatching day.
So, this draw was by far the most fun and entertaining draw we've ever held here at U-Handbag HQ. Your entries were simply astounding, your ingenuity in rigging up the most daft sewing situations took our breath away. I found your pictures very touching because not only do you have a great sense of humour, but it was so nice to see pics of lovely ladies (and men) sewing all around the world. You're all very beautiful and mad in equal measure :)
Winners were picked by the usual trusty random number thingy. We took the number of photos in the Flickr group (after discounting entries from myself) and used that number to draw the prizewinners from.
Runner up no.1
Runner up no. 2
Congratulations to you all!! Please let us know your contact details and I'll fix it with Janome so they can send your prize booty to you. There's a good chance that prizes won't be sent until early Jan - just so you know.
Sorry to those who didn't win, but thank you so much for taking part. I know it would've taken a wee bit of effort to enter this draw so I really appreciate your spirit - and your pics will remain there as funny reminders for us all :)
