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. :D

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!! :D 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! :D 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!

For those of you in and around Tucson, Arizona
(or ya know, if you want to fly or drive here – that’s cool too!)

Who:  You!

What: Sewing party

When: January 22, 2009  6 pm

Where:  Melanie’s House

Why:  For fun, of course!

You may recall, when I did the craft show in November I had the pleasure of meeting Gigi.  Gigi runs the shop Pinks & NeedlesSandi Henderson used Gigi’s adorable handmade pin toppers in the photograph of her cupcake pattern.  So anyway, we got to talking and thought it would be fun to get together and sew up our own super cute, super fun cupcake pin cushions – and we’d like to invite YOU to join us for an evening of sewing, chatting, eating, laughing…FUN!!!!

The technical stuff:

We need you to RSVP by Jan 16th, please!

We will be making the Cupcake Pincushion pattern by Sandi Henderson.  (You can make something else if you’d like, I suppose!)  This is not a free pattern -so if you don’t own it already, let me know and I will order you one.  The patterns are $11.95.  You may bring your own fabric or I have a bunch of scrap fabric that you may also use.  (Of course, I have ton of fabric on the bolt too if you feel like buying something specific.)  I already have the filling – so you don’t need to worry about bringing that.  I only have one sewing machine – so if you want to bring your machine, that would be great!

Once you RSVP, I will contact you with directions to my house.  It’s going to be a fun night!  Hope to see you there  :-)
