Friday Fun Day and The Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

I am in such a hurry this morning... leaving for the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild Retreat in a few hours and still need to get everything packed up.

Here is something new and exclusive to my shop!



When I was telling my friend Melissa at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs about the charity that I support she said that she had been looking for a way to give back with her crafting and that she wanted to help with Heartline. I think she is so wonderful! She designed this super adorable pattern to be sold exclusively in my shop all proceeds to go to Heartline. It is only $6 and all the money will go to Heartline. I will also match that money so you spend $6 and do $12 worth of good... You can find it here.

For the Giveaway today. How about a Fat Quarter Bundle of these Basics from Art Gallery:


They are some that I picked to match Poetica and I am in love with them :)

Just leave me a message ...any message. The Giveaway will end 3/2 /12 at midnight.

See you in the morning with the winner from last week.

What beautiful fabrics. You really have a great eye. Have a great time at your retreat. My guild has one the first weekend in June each year and we have a great time. There's a B&B down the road and we arrange for wine/cheese on the porch while we wait our turn for back/neck massages. What a terrific way to unwind after a long day of sewing!

Michele said...

That is a wonderful idea. I hope the 2 of you can raise lots of money for the charity.

I like that bundle. I'm sure I could find something to do with it.
