Welcome Sew Modern ~ and a Coupon!

Sew Modern

Today I’m welcoming a new sponsor to the blog ~ I’d love to introduce you to Sew Modern! I met shop owner Lauren nearly 2 years ago, in a Starbucks at QuiltCon! It was so great talking to her, and I was thrilled when she contacted me to start sponsoring the blog.

Sew Modern is a brick and mortar shop located in Los Angeles, California, as well as an online store. For those of you that aren’t lucky enough to live in southern California (like me, but I was born there!)…doesn’t this look so fun and welcoming? I love knowing my fabric comes from a happy home.

Sew Modern

Sew Modern stocks fabric yardage, scrap packs, bundles and precuts.

They also carry every color of Robert Kaufman Kona cotton solids and many other solids as well. You know I love solids!

Sew Modern stocks patterns and notions as well, including some of my favorite “This Took Forever” labels. I seriously want to slap that onto every single quilt I make.

Have you heard about the SOAK nail polish that matches your favorite fabrics? They have some of that too!

You can keep in touch with Sew Modern by subscribing to their blog (tutorials! recipes! ~ subscription on the righthand column of their blog), signing up for their newsletter, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram.

And now for the coupon! Sew Modern has generously offered all of you a 20% discount off regular priced fabric in the shop, using coupon code FRESH20. The code is good through Tuesday, October 7th. Thank you so much Sew Modern! And thank you to all of you for your awesome support of my sponsors.

Welcome Pink Chalk Fabrics!

Pink Chalk Fabrics

Today I’m very pleased to share with you a brand new sponsor of Fresh Lemons Quilts, Pink Chalk Fabrics! I’ve been a fan of Pink Chalk Fabrics for quite some time. In fact, I was curious when I discovered owner Kathy Mack’s shop so I went digging in my email Inbox. It looks like I first ordered from her in 2011 – Moda Bella Solids in Stone. Still a favorite!

Pink Chalk Fabrics is an awesome shop that has modern fabrics:

Patterns:

And lots of fun extras including some of the most glorious ribbon you will ever see:

Tons of notions:

Zippers in a wide range of colors:

Rulers:

And…nail polish! That’s right, you can actually have your nails match your favorite fabrics.

One thing I really recommend, sign up for Pink Chalk’s newsletter, “Chalk Talk”. I receive it and it is always full of great information, including their “What Goes With What?” series. Super helpful when trying to coordinate fabrics.

You can also find Pink Chalk Fabrics on the below social media sites:

Big welcome Pink Chalk Fabrics and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors!

Introducing ‘My Modern Quilt Shop’ ~ And a Coupon!

In Monday’s giveaway post, I mentioned I have a new sponsor here on the blog. Today I am very pleased to introduce you to My Modern Quilt Shop. My Modern Quilt Shop is part of owner Lisa’s lifelong love of sewing and quilting. I asked Lisa to tell us a bit about how she got started with her shop.

Lisa: “A self-taught first generation quilter, I got my first sewing machine at age 12 and proceeded to make a quilt for my first project. Years later I discovered rotary cutting, quilting with friends, and longarm quilting. But it wasn’t until the internet started buzzing about modern quilting that I felt I found my niche. I love to see what others are making and hear from my customers. If there’s a line of fabric you’d like to see in the shop, send an email to lisa@mymodernquiltshop.com.”

My Modern Quilt Shop has a great special offer for all our readers here — coupon code 15lemons for 15% off your order thru January 31st. Thanks Lisa!

I love checking out new shops. My Modern Quilt Shop stocks a good number of what they call “modern basics” such as Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets (my favorite!), Dear Stella Confetti Dots, and Pure Organic Solids. They often carry the entire line so you can find your favorite colors easily.

They also carry a number of designer collections. Jeni Baker’s Nordika – yum!

Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics – I’m working with this right now, it’s awesome!

Lisa also carries Liberty of London and Kaffe Fassett, such beautiful colors. You can also find notions and tools.

Besides visiting My Modern Quilt Shop’s website, you can keep up with the latest by joining the mailing list, following on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

I hope you will join me in welcoming Lisa to the site and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors!

Welcome Cuts of Cotton! Plus a Coupon :)

 

I’m very happy today to introduce you to my latest blog sponsor, Emily Kennedy of Cuts of Cotton! When I first checked out this new shop, I was really impressed with the website and the great stash building fabrics. I asked Emily to tell me a bit about herself and how she decided to open up her new fabric shop.

Emily: I just started sewing a few years ago and I immediately fell in love with quilting. I found that one of my favorite parts of crafting a quilt was choosing the fabrics. I have also had a dream of operating my own business for quite some time now, but had never really found something I could see myself doing long term. Until fabric:-) So the two came together, my love for quilting and fabrics, along with the desire to have a business, and I opened Cuts of Cotton! We are new, so are still slowly stocking, but my goal is be known for stocking most any basic you might need. I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband who has been so supportive of this little adventure (and has helped lots along the way).

Cuts of Cotton is organized by Color, Designer, Collection and Bundles. Emily carries so many of my favorite fabrics, from Essex Linens

to Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets

to Alison Glass Lucky Penny.

They even offer really beautiful custom bundles.

You can stay up to date with Cuts of Cotton’s sales and new arrivals by signing up for their newsletter at the bottom of their shop website. You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a great time to start shopping because Emily has given you all 20% off your entire purchase through Thursday, August 15th (midnight EST) with discount code Lemons.

Thanks Emily – and thank you all for supporting my sponsors!
