Giveaways may be presented on this blog, hosted by either Sewing Mamas LLC or a sponsoring business.
Entry methods vary by contest, but will usually include a mandatory entry such as visiting the sponsor’s website and completing a simple form. A bonus entry will often be offered, for things such as “liking” the sponsor’s Facebook page, and completing the appropriate area of the entry form.
Entries are not automatically given to Facebook “likers” and are not given for actions taken on Facebook (uploading a photo, making a comment etc.) per Facebook promotion guidelines. All giveaways are run on this blog. We do not sponsor or participate in Facebook “flash” giveaways.
Giveaways are limited to residents of the U.S. only, who are 18 years old or older, except where prohibited by local laws. A sponsoring business may include residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) in their giveaway, in which case that will be clearly stated in the announcement of the giveaway. If a Canadian winner is selected, the winner must answer a math question before the prize will be awarded, in order to comply with Canadian law.
Sewing Mamas LLC does not have a rule that someone cannot win more than 1 giveaway within a certain time period. If the sponsor has such a rule for themselves, they are responsible for providing that information and it will be stated in the giveaway.
Giveaways begin at the time the blog entry is posted, and end on the date and time specified on the individual post.
Alternate Means of Entry:
If you are reading this, you have internet access. If someone you know would like to enter and does not have access to the internet, please firstname.lastname@example.org for an address to mail an entry. Entries must be received by the end date specified in the giveaway post. Neither Sewing Mamas LLC or the giveaway sponsor is responsible for late or misdirected mail.
No purchase necessary:
No purchase or consideration will ever be required to enter a giveaway, and purchasing the sponsor’s product will not improve your chances of winning.
Odds of winning:
Vary based on the number of entrants in each giveaway.
Prizes will be described with reasonable detail including approximate retail value.
Winners will be chosen using random.org’s true random number generator (also used by Rafflecopter’s winner selection) upon the close of the contest. They will be notified by email, using the email address entered on the entry form. The winner will also be published in a new blog post.
If the winner does not respond to my notification within 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited and a new winner chosen and announced. Every effort is made to contact winners before choosing a new winner.
Sewing Mamas LLC will never share or sell your information. If you have provided your email address we may use it to respond to a comment you left. If you are a winner, your mailing address will be shared with the sponsor. If it makes sense to share your email address with the sponsor (for example, if you win a custom item, it would be easier to work with them directly) we will ask your permission before sharing it. If the giveaway is self-sponsored and the prize is not a product on hand, your information will be shared with the company from whom your prize is ordered so it can be shipped to you.
Sewing Mamas LLC is released from all liability, and are not responsible for technical glitches, errors, lost or delayed entries or circumstances beyond our control.
All giveaways are void where prohibited by law.
Some prizes may take as much as 6-8 weeks to be delivered. Please contact Sewing Mamas LLC (not the sponsor) to follow up if your prize has not arrived in a timely manner. We will make every effort to get your prize to you however, Sewing Mamas LLC will not pay to replace any missing, damaged, or lost prizes or prizes not sent by other sponsoring businesses. Prize delivery is ultimately the responsibility of the sponsor.
