Fun Fabric News....

Yeah... we have received some gorgeous fabrics in the last day...

Alison Glass' much anticipated Handcrafted 2 is here:

We got some of the prints that we had ordered from Kokka of Nani Iro, Echino and Ellen Luckett Baker





Our latest from Art Gallery Fabrics is Sharon Holland's Sketchbook... I love botanical prints... especially leaves.


I also got word that Tula Pink's Widebacks called Free Fall are on their way so I will have those up for pre-order tonight. In the mean time here is a pre-order page for Eden her collection that is coming in September. I think my favorite is the Elephant!

See ya soon!

Winner Winner... sorry it took me so long

Hey Everyone,

Here is the winner of this awesome bundle of half yards... oh yes did I fail to mention last time? They are half yards....


I tend to follow a lot of my favorite designer's on social media so I know what their upcoming collections will be. Then it's easy to do a search and find out which shops are offering it for sale. Many of the designers will even list the shops that offer their fabrics also.
 
Yeah! Way to go Kristy!
 
I will have it out to you this weekend.
 
Be back in a little while with some fun fabric news!

What I am most excited about is this gorgeous new collection by Karen Lewis Textiles called Blueberry Park


I had a bunch of friends tell me about her. Then boom there was the collection. If you follow her on IG you will see how popular her fabric is.... the collection is due out in November and we have it up for pre-order. Hope you love it as much as I do.

Fabulous Fabric Friday Giveaway... and how not to be a no-reply on Blogger

Hey Everyone,

Back a month or two ago when I hit my 1000th blog post I did a fabulous giveaway for this bundle of my favorite C+S prints including canvas...

The problem is.. the woman who won was no-reply I did my best to find her but to no avail. So the bundle still sits here waiting to go to a happy home. Good luck for you all ... bad luck for the original winner. I am giving this away... again :)

If you have entered a lot of giveaways and never won perhaps it is because you are not contactable... if you want to make it easier for us to contact you here is how to do it.

1. Go into blogger on the top right, above the list of blogs next to the line that says English (United States) there is a thing that looks like a gear ... click it
2. Click Connect to Google+ (we won't do that part but this is where you need to go) then on the left there should be your blogger profile. Click view my complete profile
3. On top right click Edit my Profile
4. The second line says Show my Email tick the box
5. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click the Save Profile

Fixed :)

How to enter to win:

Leave a comment below telling me where you go first to find new information about fabric collections that are coming out. Giveaway runs until next Friday  7/24/15 at Midnight.

Have a super weekend!

Super Sumptuous Fabric Saturday w/Giveaway and Sparkles

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for all the good wishes for my vacation... If you didn't know I was on vacation for 11 days to beautiful Alberta, Canada... okay I have to admit the drive up and back was incredibly beautiful too. We went through Northern California, Central Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and British Columbia. I got my pine tree and river fix. My daughter, Erin, tried every burger between here and there and declares Bob's Burgers and Brews in Kennewick, WA the winner for best burger in the West. If you like a good Fish and Chips I say try Brother Jon's Alehouse in Bend, Oregon.

This is Bonner's Ferry, Idaho.

We like it so much there that we are considering retiring there :)

We had a huge shop hop in the middle of June and I sewed a couple samples. I fell in love with these little purse frames called Jelly Clips and bought every color and every size. The clip comes with a pattern, so for the cost of an average pattern you get the cute little frame and the pattern. They are so easy to make you can finish one in less than an hour. These are two I have made so far... I know there are more to come :)




 Wanna see what is new in the shop?

happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,

ALL OF COTTON & STEEL is here 

(it still says pre-order but I will fix that as soon as I have a moment)

happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,happy dance,


You got a pre-view with the first little purse... that is Sodalicious by Emily Herrick

Isn't it fun... it reminds me of Fruit Stripe Gum (who remembers?)


Joy and Wonder by Cori Dantini is here... I fell in love with these Christmas Mice (my mom loved Christmas Mice)


Curiosities by Jeni Baker is so adorable.... my friend Jen is making Elizabeth's Bunny Quilt for us out of it... bunnies from bunnies :)



These are beautiful and bright the pictures just came out a little dark

Then we got Erin McMorris' wonderful Highline... I picked my favorite colors in this one... can't wait to make some pretty bright quilts for the walls in the shop.

Hope you like the new stuff :)

We are giving away the Sweet Finds colorway of Curiosities on Maureen's Blog this week. So head on over to enter to win.


Last but not least my Quilty Godson is coming to town ... it is true Molli Sparkles will be in the house on the 24th of July. If you are local and would like to have a close up and  personal look at his gorgeous Modern T-shirt quilt then come on down. He is going to have a little talk about how he decided what blocks and fabrics to use to compliment the T-shirts:


Hope you have a lovely weekend :) I am off to my happy place (work)!

Reminder:


Our website does not hold inventory that is in your cart which means sometimes we will run out of something that you ordered before we get to your order.

Please be certain that the email that you use when checking out is one at which we can contact you. Also shipping can take a few extra days due to the number of orders.
