It's Giveaway Day!

A BIG welcome to everyone visiting Modern Balabusta for the first time today! I know why you're here... Today's the big day: GIVEAWAY DAY!


Okay, so it's actually an entire week. Read up on all the details on Sew Mama Sew here and take a few minutes (hours?) to enter all the fabulous giveaways being hosted across the sewing blogosphere.

My giveaway is in the sewing craft supplies category. Last week I teased y'all with this photo:


That's right folks! I'm giving away a fat quarter bundle of Tula Pink's Nightshade in the excellent Eveningshade colour way.


You guys, this stuff is H-O-T! Tula has some fabulous quilt patterns using this fabric line. Check out Sara's blog post at Sew Sweetness about Tula's Quilt Market booth to get inspired. I'm certain Nightshade is going to sell out fast so get it while you can.


The details:

YES, I will ship internationally!
YES, I'll use random.org to select a winner from all comments on this post (the first number in the random sequence generator will be my winner)
YES, I will leave this giveaway open until May 25 at 8 p.m. EST.
YES, I will contact you by the 27th and ship by June 1st.

NO, you can't win if you are a no-reply blogger, unless you leave me your email address in your comment. If the winner is a no-reply blogger, I'll select the next number on the list. Not sure if you are a no-reply blogger? Read Lee's post on Freshly Pieced for details.

TO ENTER, leave me a comment and tell me what sewing machine you use and one thing that you love about it.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you'll come back again soon!

  1. Hei
    Kom plutselig over din blog,gjennom it,s give away day,og ble din følger,så klart!
    Eg har bare hatt Janome maskiner,storfornøyd,4800 har eg slete ut med all min sying,hobby.Kjøpte meg Janome Horizone Memory Craft 7700,grunna større mellomrom der en syr,men den er for tung til å ta med seg på kurser,så derfor skaffet eg meg Janome 3160 QDC som syr som en klokke.Janome har så mye finnesser som er innebygd i maskinene,uten en behøver å kjøpe masse ekstra deler for å få det.

    ReplyDelete
  9. OHH I was just about to buy a few yards of this line! I have a Baby Lock Ellure Plus sewing machine, and I love that it does embroidery as well as I cannot hand embroider heh. I've tried but miserably failed, so many times.

  12. I cant' believe you're giving that away! I love that line so much! I have a brother xr-7700. I love it because it's computerized. It just makes things a little easier :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Awesome new fabrics!! I use a Pfaff Tiptronic 6470 that is about 10 years old and she is my work horse. What I love about it is my husband bought it for me years ago as surprise birthday gift - it was so thoughtful of him to go research and purchase it as sewing is alien to him (and still is).

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm using an Brother/innovis NS-80. I honestly love that I don't have to use a foot pedal anymore, just press a button. Incidentally, I just discovered this fabric on Friday and I am IN LOVE with it!!!! Thanks for posting the giveaway.

  19. Wow those fabrics are rockin'!

    I use a 'vintage' (euphemism for old ;) ) Kenmore, it's really basic but it works and as long as I occasionally clean and oil it, it never (seldom?) complains. I do love that it was free... ;)

  23. Ooh wonderful giveaway! Thank you :-) My machine is a janome, and I love the needle threader, the button that makes sure you always stop in needle up / needle down position, and the speed control dial... I just wish I'd thought to get a machine that would accomodate an extension table :-( my model wont...

    ReplyDelete

  41. Hi :-) I really love this fabric line from Tula Pink, it's so cool!
    I sew on a brother machine, I got it 12 years ago as a 21st birthday present. It's temperamental and has to be coaxed and cajoled into doing most things, but I'm so used to it's funny little ways, I don't know what I would do with a machine that worked perfectly! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I use a Bernina Virtuosa and I love the needle down facility

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have a New Home Memory Craft from the 1980's that I bought on craigslist. It is awesome! It has all the stitches and feet I need. She's an oldie but a goodie! (I also have a Juki, which is super awesome for piecing and quilting, but alas, she is in storage!).

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hello from Minnesota! I use a EuroPro 8260 that my mom picked up from the curb and gave to me this January. With it, I'm learning to machine sew (and learning about the awesome online community of sewing as well.) I've used the walking, zipper, and buttonhole feet but haven't tried the darning foot just yet.

    ReplyDelete
  45. (EMAIL: marshudson at comcast dot net); thanks for chance to win this great prize! I use a 25-year-old Kenmore 12 stitch and what I like about it is that it's "low tech" and rarely has any problems. Of course, sometimes the downside of it is that it's "low tech" ;>)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my gosh! What a generous giveaway! Love the Nightshade! My sewing machine is a Brother SE-350. My husband picked it out for me and I love that it has about a thousand features for less than $1bazillion (I only know how to use about 5 of those features, but that's not important!) - and so far, even though I have to fight with the big quilts, I've been able to piece and quilt all of my projects on this little trooper!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hmmm, honestly I'm not sure what my sewing machine is. I've had it for about 6 years, and the make of it has long since rubbed off, it's been loved that much! I've never had any problems with it, and I love the fact that it has willingly sewn anything I've thrown at it, from sheer voiles, through to layers and layers of denim and leather! I'll be really sad when I have to replace it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I use a Brother 2600-i.
    I love that it'll do almost anything I ask it to. Quilt a queen-sized quilt? Sew some toddler shorts? It says, "SURE!"

  51. I have a brother cs-6000i! i just got it a few months ago and i love it because... unlike my old machine, there are no tension issues! no jam ups every 35 seconds! it's amazing what you can get done with a machine that works properly! :)

    thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  135. I having been sewing on a Janome Memory Craft for over 20 years now and I've used it to sew everything from clothes, drapes, pillows, applique and embroidery to quilts. It's been reliable, easy to use and came with lots of extra feet.

    A year ago, I picked up a vintage Singer 15-91 to use for piecing as you only need a straight stitch for that. I have fallen in love with that machine. She stitches beautifully and reliably - whether through one layer of fabric or several.

  137. I am a (very) newbie sewist and I'm using a Brother cs6000i. It's been easy to learn on but I can see how its limitations will frustrate me one day.

  138. I have a Husqvarna Topaz 30. I am completely in love with it, I love the top loading bobbin and the auto cut of threads!

  139. Oh my goodness, I love this fabric! My 11 year old who is just learning to sew has had her eye on it too, lol. I use a Singer machine that has something with "quilt" in the name, but I'm not sure what it is! It is easy to thread, and easy to use - I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I use a very basic Singer and it does the job, not too hard to figure out and I'm just a beginner anyway.

  141. Oh my, I LOVE Nightshade!! I use a Singer 6215C...it's old, but a workhorse...I love that it's sturdy and sews through everything. :)

  145. I use a Janome model I can't remember and I love that it does everything I need and nothing I don't. I also use a singer 201 for FMQ and I love it because it has a little more harp space than my janome. Awesome giveaway, I fell in love with this line just from reading the sew sweetness post.

  147. I have a JUKI quilting machine and love it! It FMquilts like a dream, sews straight lines perfectly, the tension is always just right, and it never gets jammed.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I have a Pfaff 2056 that's about 8 years old. What I loved about it then - dual feed, needle threader, presser foot lift - are all things that are much more common now.

  149. I have a Brother - I love that it sews even with a newbie like me!

  150. I have my moms kenmore right now, I need to get myself a new one, mine is not up to speed :)

  151. I use an Brother Innov-is 1e - love this great sewingmashine. It gives me so many creative ways to use a mashine - and love the embroidery part.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I use my Janome 10001. I really love the self threading needle operation.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I use a Juki tl2010q. It is amazing for quilting. So much space :)

    ReplyDelete
  154. I own a Janome Heart Truth and I love that is easy to tote around. I would like a bigger machine, but that means it will be much heavier. Too bad Apple doesn't make sewing machines as I'm sure they would figure a way to make it thinner and lighter.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I use a Brother 1034D and I love it because it is so easy to thread.

  158. I'm embarrassed to admit I use a cheapo Singer Simple that I got at JoAnn Fabric on sale for $70 three years ago after my daughter snapped the spool pin off my old (somewhat better) Singer. It was all I could afford with a toddler and a new baby!

    The only thing I love about it is that it only cost me $70 and it's actually still working after three years. I'm due for an upgrade when we get our next tax refund... xo

  159. I use a Janome Memory Craft 3000, and I love its foot up/down memory feature. It has saved me many a time!

  163. I use a Janome 6260 QC. I love that it came with its own extension table.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Oh, super cool fabric!

    I use a Janome, and I'm in love with the magical threading mechanism. (I learned to sew on a machine that's much older than I am.)

    ReplyDelete
  165. I have a Bernina 440QE. LOVE that machine. There's nothing it can't handle. No seam too thick. Totally ready for anything. It doesn't have a bobbin sensor or a thread cutter but I don't miss that at all. Dealer support is amazing! The feet change so easily and in just a few seconds. I have big hands/fingers so the screw on feet aren't for me.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I have a Singer something. I aspire to a fancy-dancy machine but don't think I sew enough at this time to warrant the expense. Maybe someday.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I use a Pfaff Quilt Expression. It is super easy for free motion quilting. :)

  168. I started out with a very cheap Brother (it's amazing I ever wanted to sew again) Once I knew I was in love with sewing I bought a Bernina Aurora 430. When I bought my machine I didn't think I was ever going to quilt haha and so I had to buy all the extras that the Bernina Aurora 440QE had. You being a quilter would opt for that one for sure. It has speed control, a million different feet to choose from, the BSR (Stitch Regulator), and Bernina dealers are really knowledgeable about their product. They are pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for. I pulled a project out that I had worked on before I got my Bernina and thought oh my goodness this looks horrible! You will find most people are pretty loyal to their machine brand. You need to shop around and try out several brands and see what works for you. Good Luck sorting through all this great advice :)

  169. I have a Brother SE400, and I LOVE the automatic needle threader!!

  170. I sew on a vintage Riccar and I love that it was free! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  171. I use a basic model Bernina Bernette. It's a great little machine and it works like a dream, never has trouble with tension, and only ever asks for a little oil. :) I am hoping to upgrade it at some point to a machine with a larger harp space though for quilting. I entered a sewing contest hosted by Bernina and voting began today, so fingers crossed!

  180. I use my 22 year old Janome for all my quilting and patchwork. It never misses a beat and that's what I love about it. I think its virtually indestructible (touch wood!) and I love my old girl! Love that fabric! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  187. I use my old embroidery machine for doing sewing now. The embroidery unit is kinda worn out. The sewing part works okay but it has a lot of functions.

    ReplyDelete
  188. I have a Kenmore I've had for about 12 years. I got a new Singer, but I still sew on my Kenmore. It just sews through everything. Do I wish it had a few more bells and whistles? Sure, but right now it does the job!

    ReplyDelete
  189. I have a Toyota Jeans Plus. It is my first machine and, like you, I bought it with no idea that I would get into quilting. I'm making my first quilt right now, so we'll see how it holds up. For general use, I like that it's easy to use.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I use a good old reliable Brother that was given to me in 2004, and I love that it survived years of mistreatment when I left the nest and moved to university during my non-sewing years when it was left behind at my parents' place and abused by my sister and her not-so-successful attempts at sewing!! Thanks for the chance to win - those fabrics are just stunning.

    I sew with a BabyLock Quilter's Choice - I love the knee lift, top load bobbin, all the stitches and it just sews so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  199. I have a basic 10+ year old Kenmore. I love that it is all mechanical and no computer. I do wish it had a few more fancy stitches.

    ReplyDelete
  200. I bought a Brother after my Viking Designer 1 finally gave up, just not worth investing to have it repaired. I like my brother, does everything I want it to.
