400th Member Milestone Giveaway

DQs are totally spoilt..expecting a giveaway for every landmark ! Well, why not? And to further spoil them, we have with us fellow DQ, Sudha, of Madras Motifs fame, offering a giveaway to celebrate our 400th member milestone ! Over to Sudha..

How did I get into this?? Not the Give-away, but Madras Motifs?? Don't remember much, but back then all I wanted was to avoid sleeping the noons away. From that thought I have come a long way. All things off beat fascinate me - bags, kids clothes, home decors, quirky accessories and all such madness.

Madras Motif is a small home run business that believes in slow design and each piece we make is made one at a time, by hand. Everything is designed and constructed by myself, Sudha, here at my home from my sunny balcony. In my work, I strive to create durable and long lasting items that are both functional and beautiful. I have a minimalistic style to designing, and I let the fabric do the talking.

MM is everything fun, quirky, bold, minimal and chic.

Giving away an Itty Bitty purse to mark the latest landmark at DQ.! And all I need you guys to do is
1.Hit the 'follow' button on DQ blog (if you haven't already)
2.Share my page, Madras Motifs on your wall and invite your friends to Like it
3.Leave a comment here telling us you've done the same. Make sure you leave us your name and a way for us to contact you.

 Easy peasy.!

  So go ahead and share, people.. share the page..share the love.

(We could not do this giveaway at the 350th member milestone and so carried it over to the 400th. In case you were wondering.)
