Our 500th Blog Post Giveaway!


Milestones should be celebrated! This is our 500th post on the Woolen Mill Store blog. We certainly have come a long way since our first little hello in April 2007.

For us, the most important thing about our blog is our community... our Pendleton family. Without our creative customers bringing projects by, without our friends and fans leaving comments, without the network of awesome creators who share ideas and inspiration, we wouldn't have much of a blog at all.

So we want to thank YOU!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by Thursday, May 16 at 11:59pm. You can comment on other posts, but it won't count towards the giveaway. Comments on Facebook won't count either. Gotta be right here if you want to win!

We'll use a handy random number generator to pick two winners. Our winners will get a Woolen Mill Store crafty surprise box with fabric, notions, and some of our famous mill scraps. And we're not going into any more detail than that, because it would ruin the surprise.

Congratulations on your 500th post on the woolen mills store blog! As a Seattleite living out in New York, I look to the woolen mills store and blog for all my pendleton needs - I love crafting with pendleton and bringing a little Northwestern spirit in to my home in Brooklyn!

Wow! 500 posts is quite a milestone! I'd love to win the drawing, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the next few days (I hope no one needs me to tie any shoes or do any sign language or anything). As an Oregon girl from birth, I've been a long-time Pendleton fan. Keep up the good work!

I'm smitten with Pendleton every since I laid eyes on a Native-inspired Pendleton blanket as a child. When my humble Native American parents presented me with a Pink Serape Pendleton after being the first in our family of thirteen to graduate college, that Pendleton was worth more to me than all the gold and silver in the world and it still looks great to this very day. Happy 500th Blog Post, Pendleton!

Jake Ferraris said...

Yes, congratulations!! My mother took me to the outlet at Washougal 50-ish years ago and I still love to shop for Pendleton fabrics. When I'm in the area I always try to stop in, either in Washougal or in Portland. I also manage to pick up something at Sewexpo in Puyallup. My stash probably doesn't need more but I would love to add to it : )
