Sponsored Giveaway: Feather and Stitch!!!

I have been watching my followers slowly (like really, really slowly - you know how they say a watched pot never boils?) creep up towards the magical century so I could announce this... And now it has! Yay!

So, to help me celebrate my (small-but-exciting-for-me) milestone of reaching 100 followers, the lovely ladies at Sew Fresh Fabrics have sponsored a giveaway. On my blog. How cool is that? When I approached them with this idea, they said 'sure, we'd love to for one of our best customers!'. For obvious reasons I have decided not to mention this statement to Mr Elven Garden ;o)

You can find Sew Fresh Fabrics, run by Peg and Becca on etsy. They stock heaps of my favorite designers (think Lizzy House, Thomas Knauer , Lotta Jansdotter, Jenean Morrison and heaps, heaps more). Plus one of the really great things they offer are bundles of Kona solids inspired by different collections. This is so much easier than trying to match colours on a computer monitor (which if you're me ususally ends in total disaster...) Plus they are just really nice, post your fabric really fast and are generally legendary people.

And the giveaway? Hurry up you say? Peg and Becca have most generously offered a Fat Quarter Bundle of Feather and Stitch by Sarah Watts.

LCGCreations said...

Another new follower. I love Sew Fresh Fabrics, and I am also an international customer of theirs too. This would be perfect for a new kitchen range I am working on at the minute, so I am thinking of pot holders, with bias binding around, and some tea cosies with an Easter theme for my Craft stalls over the coming months.

Katy Cameron said...

Happy first century! I'm a GFC follower (yeah, you've been stuck with me a while ;o) ) and I love Sew Fresh Fabrics (even if their parcels sometimes take Russian diversions thanks to the US postal service ;o) ) I think I'd make some nice big bags for the summer, with the birds/birdhouses as the outers, and the flowery bits as the inners.

Thanks for the chance to win :o)

Lisa C said...

I'm a follower! Congratulations on 100 followers! I am in the midst of making baby quilts for friends (their grandchildren) and for the church Christmas store. I enjoy how tote-able baby quilts are for hand-stitching the binding in the car, in front of the tv, etc. Not quite instant gratification but closer than those big monsters!
