Lap App Giveaway

Hello everyone, I have a giveaway just for my readers. If you are visiting for Maggie’s First Dance BOM, the other bloggers are not involved with this giveaway. You can also scroll to the bottom to find out about the giveaway since you’ve just seen most of these pictures.

Since I do a lot of hand work, I wanted to show you a product that really helps keep my hands, arms and shoulders from getting tired. If you follow me on Instagram (@thequiltingnook), you have seen me reference it with some of my handwork. It’s called the Lap App and was designed by my quilty friend, Joyce Haskins. You can visit her web site here.

The Lap App has a place to put your spool of thread, scissors and a magnet to hold your needles. It also comes with a sand paper tracing and marking surface and an ironing cover. It has two star wheels to make adjustments just for you.

I use mine to rest my hands on for embroidery, hand applique and English paper piecing. I’ve taken it to the beach, the pool, on the porch and I use it in the car when we travel. It also fits nicely into a moderate size tote bag.

Joyce makes all the covers and puts them together. The wood is birch and pine and is handcrafted in South Carolina.

Here are Lydia and Joyce (right) using them at our once a month quilting meeting place, the lobby of the Renaissance Hotel.

Joyce is going to give a Lap App to one my readers. Again, please note, the other bloggers for Maggie’s Dance are not involved with this giveaway. 

For your chance to win, visit Joyce’s Instagram, @lapappstore, and follow her, then come back here and leave me a comment that you started following her.

You have until 11:59 PM on August 7 to leave your comment. Your comment must be on this post, not on Maggie’s Block 3 post in order to win. 

If you are interested in purchasing a Lap App, you can find them at The Lap App StoreNancy’s Notions, and Paper Pieces.

If you are a hand worker, I know you will enjoy using the Lap App as much as I do. I want you to know that I am not getting compensated for this endorsement. Joyce was kind enough to offer to give one away and I took her up on that offer.

So follow Joyce on Instagram and leave a comment here for me that you did for your chance to win. Thanks for stopping by.
