How is it December already?!  If you’re anything like me, this month gets a little crazy for you so I think a treat is in order…

I’m excited to announce the opportunity to win a gorgeous pattern of your choice from independent retro/historical pattern company Folkwear.

CraftyWeeOne’s recent post on her version of the Poiret Coccoon Coat inspired me to pop back over to and, fortunately for us, owner Kate is absolutely lovely.

There are a couple of different ways you can browse folkwear’s pattern collection: the main page has everything separated by category so you can jump straight to your main interest, or you can see a PDF version of the catalog here.

Once you’ve made your selection, leave me a comment on this post letting me know which pattern you want to make and why.
