Have you heard about the American Made Contest? Martha Stewart is honoring those who have started their own business with American Made products. One woman who exemplifies this is Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin.
Stacy grew up in a home with creative inspiration from her grandmother and mother, then when her dad passed away, she turned that passion into a business that has grown over the years. From her simple beginnings of sewing with her mom and selling patterns, to the exposure of online media, Stacy’s patterns are sold in stores nationwide and created by woman in every state. Who better to represent an American Made business than Buttermilk Basin!
If you would like to help Stacy realize her dream of taking a trip to New York to meet Martha and a monetary prize to help build her business, please visit Buttermilk Basin’s Entry, and cast your vote for Stacy. You can vote up to 6 times, but your vote only counts if you are signed in. It is simple to sign up, just your name and email and you can opt for mailings or not.
Not only does Stacy share her talents with others at events and classes, she shares with all of us online with her generous giveaways and free patterns. You can find Stacy’s free patterns on her website, Buttermilk Basin; keep up with news on her blog, Buttermilk Basin Blog; or stay tuned with daily news on her Facebook Page.
Today Stacy is offering my followers a chance to win three of her fall patterns. Stacy’s designs come with full sized patterns that are easy to trace out onto freezer paper or fusible. In fact, I have never really read the instructions, I just cut out and make and most in a day, so perfect for beginners. Not only does she create wonderful designs each year, but she puts as much care into the patterns, so that we can make them ourselves, without the frustration of confusing instructions or blurry photos.
To enter the giveaway, visit Stacy’s Entryand enjoy reading her story and cast your vote. You can visit her webpage and let me know what pattern is your favorite or tell me something you read about Stacy that inspires you. Help me to help Stacy and make her dream come true.
I will pick a winner from the comments on this post, anyone can enter, open to all visitors, US and our friends Overseas and Canada. The contest is open until 9pm EST, Monday October 5 and I will announce the winner, that night. I have a few no reply commenters and I wish I could reply, I love all of your comments and you can list your email with google, but keep it private from others.
