We'll choose to acknowledge this one, rather than dwell on it and accept that the last chunk of pandemic-related time has been more than a little rife with turbulence. So, we figured, as we're heading into our favourite time of year (with the summer crowds thinning) it'd be a fine time to convince you to not winterise your means of travel quite yet, taking a chance at making the most of the spicy change in seasons with a giveaway to remember, for a friend in need.

Whilst we'd all love to win this one ourselves, we liked the idea of you hitting-up someone who might need some time on the road in light of the last 18 months. Your friend in need. The therapist here being a good ol' fashioned road trip and a weekend out. We know first hand how good this time of year can be out- our-way and we want to share some of this side of the Island with you. So what's the prize?

To kick start the trip, we'll fill up your tank so you can head to the workshop in Essex. Once out here on the East Coast of England we're going to give you £250 to raid the shelves here at the S+S atelier, collating all the essentials before you hit the road. While you're at it, the crew at Finisterre has agreed to double down by putting up another £250 to be spent virtually on their store too (your picks will be with us on your arrival). We'll then fill your wagon back up with fuel and send you on your way- not forgetting to draw some crosses on your map, after sinking a few coffees of course!

To enter, we're going to need less than a minute of your time. To be in for a chance you'll need to...

  1. Follow S+S and Finisterre on Facebook and Instagram- not forgetting to like the Instagram post.
  2. Tag a friend who needs a damn good road trip, fingers crossed they'll take you for the ride (you can tag as many people as you want, separate comments = more entries = more chance of winning).
  3. Last and finally you'll need to head on over to stitchesandsteel.com and subscribe to 'THE MILE' (our mailer, we go easy on the spam- promise)!

Winners will be chosen at random on the 01/11/21- all adventures will need to be taken before the 31/12/21.
