Wanted: Guinea Pigs... and more new fabric.

Hi Everyone,

First the eye candy:



These are from Rendezvous by Khristian A. Howell for Anthology... it was the Damask that did me in. I know some people are saying they are tired of teal and red... but this is oh so different and sophisticated. Click here to see the whole collection. (be sure to click the thumbnails for full size pictures these are gorgeous)



  
This is The Woodlands again by Khristian A. Howell for Anthology. Amazing diversity. I love the teeny bit of Japenese style these have. You can see the whole collection here.

Now about the Guinea Pig part. I am looking for a few people to help test a new software for me. I am going to branch out into a regular online shop (not Etsy) so that it is easier to order yardage and shipping is calculated more efficiently etc. I will still have the Etsy shop too this will be in addition. I don't want to launch it and have customers be frustrated if it doesn't work properly though. So I need people that like to dig around check all of the pages see if they can break it or what needs fixing, check spelling (Sasha) etc. So if you would like to volunteer I would like to get started testing on Monday. Leave a comment if you want to help me out.

Giveaways: Don't forget to go back to last Thursdays post and enter the two giveaways they both end tonight at midnight. Tomorrow I will have a new giveaway hosted by my friend Jackie so come on back y'all.

Talk soon!

  7. I would love to test for you - I am one of your most frequent shoppers so not needing to bug you for a custom order would be great! (Meaning less annoying for you haha).

    I love that "The Woodlands" fabric... The sky, the main scene, and the grass are def on my list. They would make such a cute "scene quilt" by just putting the 3 together in an interesting way.

    Not sure what you need, but if I can do it and my brain is working at the time, will be happy to try;)
