Choose Your Favorite Apron Giveaway From the Farmer's Wife

Oh, what a lovely apron giveaway has come to us this week from the Farmer's Wife!

A little about The Farmer's Wife - At Home, all items (excluding vintage linens) are handmade in a rural Illinois in-home studio. Care is taken to produce quality items the old fashioned way, by hand. Most of the sewing is done on a 1950's two-toned turquoise sewing machine named Beverly. And recently two additional vintage sewing machines have joined the stable - a lavender Fleetwood and a PINK Atlas.

Owner, Suzanne was taught by her grandmother to sew and grandma was a stickler for details. Suzanne freshly starches and presses all aprons before shipping.

At Farmer's Wife there are several "apron product lines."

If you see the phrase "Green Line" in the description, it refers to the aprons which are constructed from repurposed men's dress shirts, paired with designer fabrics and trims. Ii.e. aprons are made from repurposed and new materials.

If you see the phrase "Repro Apron Line" then this is Suzanne's line of aprons made from patterns created from her vintage collection. I.e. aprons are made from all new materials.

Now to the giveaway . . .

Visit the Farmer's Wife Etsy store and browse the selection. Come back here to TAG and make a comment about the apron you would like to win. That will give you one entry into the giveaway.

For five extra entries into the drawing create a blog post about this giveaway, leaving your permalink in your comment. Be sure to mention this in your entry.

And for 10 extra, bonus chances at winning send in a picture of you or a family member wearing an apron and a few words about you and your apron. Give me the dirt! Leave a comment that you are sending in a photograph too! (Contact is above) No headless apron wearers please!! We will write up your "apron-ography" in the weeks to come.

Closes midnight May 11, 2010.
