Great Big Giveaway Day ~ January 2015

I’m baaaaack! I’ve spent a few weeks away from this space (and my sewing machine) as we traveled to Ohio, back to Illinois, up to Michigan, then back to Illinois. Phew, the holidays are pretty exhausting but the kids are now back in school and I’m ready to get settled into my routine once again.

I am kicking off the new year with 7 great giveaways from my wonderful sponsors. Reminder ~ Please check your email (including SPAM folders) or back to this post after I choose the winners on Thursday. I want to make sure everyone gets connected to their prize.

2. Custom Labels 4U is offering a winner their choice of one of the following: Free 36 labels of 1/2″ size woven name tapes – OR – Free 30 labels of 1″ size woven name tapes.

Welcome Gotham Quilts ~ and a Discount!

A few weeks ago, I received an email from a brand new fabric shop that was interested in sponsoring this blog. I went on over to check out Gotham Quilts (such a cool name) and was so excited! A beautiful new shop full of beautiful new fabrics! Gotham Quilts was started just this year by fabric and quilt lovers Andrea and Ivete. They live in Manhattan and plan to open a brick and mortar storefront next year.

I did some poking around their shop – so easy to navigate. You can shop fabric by Category, Designer, Manufacturer, and Color. They carry a ton of the new American Made Brand solids. I haven’t used these but they are on my list! Love the idea of supporting fabric manufacturing in my home country.

Ivete is a huge Tula Pink fan, and Gotham Quilts carries her latest collection Moon Shine.

I loved Far, Far Away by Heather Ross the first time around (when it was on double gauze), but I was even more thrilled when it was reprinted on quilting cotton!

If you love bundles or are looking for holiday gift ideas for a quilter, Gotham Quilts offers precuts and kits as well.

Now for the discount! If you sign up for the Gotham Fabrics newsletter, you will receive a coupon for 10% off your order of full priced fabrics. You can find the sign up on the very bottom right of their shop, under “NEWSLETTER SIGNUP”. You can also keep in touch with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Welcome Gotham Fabrics!
