Zipper Rainbow for Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day

I was lucky enough to find a ton of zippers at a fantastic price from a seamstress going out of business last summer. And so now I’m going to share some with you! I’m sharing about 125 zippers, split among a total of 5 winners. Yes – there are 5 chances to win a rainbow of 25 zippers each! Each winner will get an assortment of nylon and metal zippers including a wide range of colors (each winner will get one of most of the colors shown in these pictures) from 7″ to 22.” If you win and really want something in particular (color/metal vs nylon/length), I’ll do my best to help you out, but may have a limited quantity available depending on how specific you are. To enter, leave one comment telling me your favorite thing about spring (or whatever season it’s becoming in your part of the world!). And please leave an email address so I can contact you if you win! While I’d love for you to follow me through a feed readerfacebooktwitter, and/or pinterest, none of those will help you win any zippers 🙂
