And the winner is ……. comment #46 Mickey Kelly White/Harleywife!!! Congrats Mickey!! Thank you to all who entered. You are all winners in our book. 😀

It’s been way too long since we’ve had a giveaway on the blog. I say it’s about time we get to it!!

As soon as we opened the box and saw the Cut & Sew fabrics by Robert Kaufman, we started thinking pincushions, ironing board covers, sewing machine covers… NOW!! 😀 Or why not take it a step farther and really makeover your sewing room and use these fabrics as curtains? Would look amazing! (I typed this post yesterday and today we had a lady come in to the shop and buy 6yds of the green thread fabric to use as curtains in her sewing room – going to be so cute!)

To get you started, we’re giving away a Cut & Sew fat quarter bundle (8 prints in all) and a copy of Jaybird Quilts Biscuit pincushions pattern.

Cut and Sew FQ & pincushion pattern giveaway at Lola Pink Fabrics #lolapinkEntering is easy .. just simply leave a comment below and you’re entered! 😀 Want extra entries?? You can either follow our blog posts, become a fan on Facebook, or signup for the newsletter. Just make sure you leave a comment for each extra entry.

A winner will be drawn Thursday, June 21st at 4pm CDT (which just so happens to be my birthday!)

Hope y’all have a great week!

Have I mentioned how I love Kate Spain? I’m so glad that her husband’s brother-in-law’s mother suggested Moda to her so that we can enjoy her amazing designs on fabric! 😉  They really are amazing…AND she is just so dang nice.  (That is SO true of many people in our sewing community!)

SO on twitter yesterday I mentioned that I have ONE Flurry charm pack left.  And she said – Hey I have another!  Wanna give it away?  (See what I mean about the nice?!?!)  Well HECK! Of course!  So just leave a comment below and if random.org happens to pick your number, you’ll get a charm pack from Kate Spain!

And you really MUST go look at Terrain!  The pre-cuts will arrive in August and the yardage in September.  And it’s beautiful.  Really really beautiful!

Okay – quick – comment!  I’ll close this up in a couple of days.  :-)

Leading up to Spring Quilt Market, Jana from Izzy and Ivy hinted at something really great they were revealing at market….and they did not disappoint!  It’s Sprinkles!  (Find them here)

They are woven labels and size tags!!!  There’s just something about a woven label taking homemade to handmade.  How many times have you made something really sweet, only to forget later what size you made? And they  added care instructions to the labels!  :o

One package has 11 size labels, you get 2 of each size for a total of 22.  The  sizes are 6mo, 9mo, 12mo, 18mo, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. (And if you needed, you could swap the 6 around for a 9 easily! Just sayin’)  There are also 4 different “handmade” labels, in different sizes, you get 8 of those and last but certainly not least you get 1 Izzy label! That’s 31 damask woven labels! The woven means they won’t fade, shrink or bleed.  And best of all, they come packaged in a super sweet cupcake container, perfect for giving or if you are like us, just looking really cute in your studio.  And for less than ten bucks!

Yep, the whole package is only $9.95! Typically these will be 99 cents to ship (in the US) but for the rest of June, if you enter the code SPRINKLES (yes, all caps) it will take 99 cents off your order so that it essentially ships for free (or discounted worldwide).  This is only good the rest of June!

Find Sprinkles here!

Annnnnnnnd…..giveaways are few and far between on my blog – but I’m so excited about these I’m going to give one away! Just leave a comment….you know, stating your unwavering love for me or something. 😉  Everyone is welcomed to enter cuz I love everyone like that.  I’ll draw the winner around July 1st.  Or you could just go ahead and buy some too. 😀  (They are here!)

I’ve already started using mine.  I added a size and care label to my Family Reunion Dress (which you still have time to make for a chance at the gift certificate!).  Hopefully I’ll have a chance for a little photo shoot this week to share pictures with you…and at the same time photograph the 1001 Peeps gypsy dress as well July’s kit.  So much to do….gotta scram!  See you again soon. 😀

I always feel like I need to give you a background – but truth is I have to walk out the door in less than 10 minutes! SO I shall try to contain myself here.

I discovered Andrea via Mique and I’m so glad I did!  I JUST LOVE Andrea’s creations! (They make awesome gifts…for yourself or others!)  SO recently I had her make me a laptop bag with a few of my favorite fabrics…..

I just love it!  And I highly recommend working with Andrea – super professional and awesome sewing skills (she has made tons of samples for quilt market booths!)

Anyway I thought ya know, everyone does giveaways after market….why not do one DURING market!  SO just leave a comment to enter and when I return on Sunday, I’ll pick a winner.  There are 9 fat quarters.  When I have a little more time I’ll go link you to each of the fabrics too.  :-)

PS.  Be SURE to check out Andrea’s blog….there is a giveaway there too. AND a discount code!!!

Comments closed! Will be announcing a winner soon :-)

Christmas came early, you guys!!!  Kate Spain‘s Central Park pre-cuts are here!!!!  Kate designs fabric for Moda, but you have likely seen her designs out in the non-fabric world (aka: clearly not as fun world) as well.  😉  Her surface designs have been picked up by places like Target, Crate & Barrel and more!  Plus Kate is quite possibly the sweetest person on the planet – so down to earth and genuine – and so that should make you even more excited about supporting her!  Read more about Kate’s journey into designing fabric on Quilting Arts.

I have Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth bundles!  Pick up the whole line or choose one of the seasons (made up of 10 prints) for a more affordable option!

Also I have 2 quilt kits ready to go for you!

The Urban Life kit actually gives you 2 quilts!!!!

I juts LOVE this Central Park Quilt Kit!

It would be perfectly appropriate to blow off any Christmas shopping you have left and just work on these quilt tops – don’t ya think? 😉

Of course, there are jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs too! :-)

Find Central Park here!

And because I’m so giddy about this collection – how about a little giveaway!  The winner can choose from a jelly roll or layer cake (or use a credit toward a quilt kit, fat quarters or fat eighths if you prefer!)

Simply leave a comment to enter!

Thank you so much Alisa for your Sewing with Knits blogs!!!  I wanted to end the week with a giveaway!

The book Sewing Clothes Kids Love is filled with information!  And it has 10 projects inside too!  (More than one are knit patterns, which I why I thought it’d be perfect for this week!) The no-longer-in-print Feliz pattern is also included in the book.  That is still one of my most requested patterns, and now this book is the only way you can get it.  (A couple reminders of the Feliz Dress below.)  I LOVE this versatility of this pattern.  And the book is the same way.  A launching pad, if you will.

And of course, it doesn’t seem right to not give some knits away this week also.  So another lucky person will win 1.5 yards of Michael Miller Knit fabrics.

You could pick some of this…

or this….

how about this

Two Lovely Chances to win….here’s how to enter:

Tell me something you want to learn related to sewing or an idea for future learning series.

(ie.  I want to learn how to use elastic thread.
How about a series on Quilting? )

Since all the knits are on sale through this weekend – if you have already bought them (or purchase some over the weekend) then your name will be entered TWICE  for your purchase (and once more if you leave a comment!) and you can choose more knits or a refund!

*International players are always welcome to join in the fun!
