Giveaway #2 featuring Lindy Wood of Woodsheddesigns

It’s time for the Design Style Guide GIVEAWAY #2 !!! We are going to be having giveaways approximately every 2 weeks! So be sure to check in often!

This giveaway features Lindy Wood at Woodsheddesigns.

Lindy says, “Hi, my name is Lindy. I live in Turner, ME with my husband of 33 years. I work full time as an LPN clinical assistant in an OB/GYN office.

I started sewing around the 5th grade at 4H. I think my first project was a heart shaped needle cushion. I didn't sew much for the next 20 years until a friend gave me a log cabin table runner pattern and I promptly told her I could not possibly do that. Here I am 13 years later.”

“I love color and texture. Fabric jumps out at me. I can walk into a store and instantly know what I will be walking out with. I don't like traditional pastel colors. I love the Amish and feel inspired by their bold quilts. If I can't make a decision about what border goes with which fabric, I just ask my husband. He is always my best advisor.”


“The best thing about my product is that every stitch, every piece of fabric and how it matches up is thought about. I don't sit down and just sew. I look and think about where every log is placed upon another. I wonder if the consumer will care or even notice but the bottom line is that I care and notice the quality and placement of my fabric. I can only hope that others will feel the attention that I give to each one of my runners or pillow covers.”

I personally had a great time searching through Lindy’s shop! I had a Grandmother who was an award winning quilter, and I quickly spotted the quality of work and love that Lindy puts into her items.

As a member of Design Style Guide (a group of artisans working to reach out to the Interior Design community ) Lindy is offering one US reader, $30.00 credit and free shipping to be spent in her shop on Etsy. The winner will be able to pick any item from Woodsheddesigns that is within the given credit limit.

(credit is NOT transferrable for cash or to any other shop)

The Patriotic Flag Table Topper has stolen my heart,
I'd give this design to my son,
He is a young man with wisdom and sense,
And treasures the freedoms we've won.
