Review:: The Unofficial Downton Abbey Sews & a giveaway

The Unofficial Downton Abbey Sews - magazine cover artWe all know how much I love Downton Abbey! I am on pins and needles waiting for the new season to air but that isn’t until January for us in the States. So to ease the pain, Interweave has a new publication out that is all about Downton Abbey, The Unofficial Downton Abbey Sews magazine. It is full of everything Downton and there are some great projects to make in the magazine. I really want the cover dress to wear around and pretend I am Lady Mary or something. You know while the Staff cleans my mansion and makes me lunch. Oh wait that won’t happen as much as I want to pretend. 🙂

The folks over at Andover have the awesome Downton Abbey fabric collection as well and it is featured in the magazine. There is a great table runner pattern in the book with the Andover fabrics so I thought why not just have a giveaway to get you started on that project.

  1. So sad that the giveaway is for US residents only. But I thought I’d chime in anyhow (maybe you’ll make an exception if Mr. Random Number Generator chooses me!) I love the Dowager Countess. She has the best lines of anyone in the show. “What is a week end?” She slays me!

  2. I am a sucker for Bates. He is so reserved and dashingly handsome in a weird way. I also like Anna and how well her character interacts on both levels of the household.

  3. Ok, so…I can’t ever remember peoples names, and my husband loves the show too and cant either so.. IMDB lets me know that both of us are going to go with John Bates. We just had a lengthy debate on if any other character is as regularly sympathetic and kind, Joseph molesley kinda comes close but his manly stance against accepting “charity” makes him lose this one.

  4. I like Mrs. Patmore the cook. She seems to be a character with feeling for others. I also like Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham. I enjoy watching Maggie Smith.

  5. I loved Lady Sybil. She was always so sweet and true to what she believed in. But now I like Rose even though she is a bit troublesome. 🙂

  6. So sorry that I missed this giveaway! I love that show but have only watched some of the first season, isn’t there a character named Anna? I’m certainly going to look for this magazine I love everything Interweave does!
