Second 500th post giveaway day, a sale, and a winner.

Hi Everyone,

What to do first? How about the sale... since we no longer can get to the front door (again) I am having a little Memorial Day Sale. Everything in the sale section is marked down to 50% off MSRP in other words it is at wholesale prices kind of like a little sample spree of our own. You can also take an extra 10% off your whole cart with this coupon code: REMEMBER10 that means you will be getting the fabrics in the sale section below wholesale. Until Tuesday at midnight Eastern. I will also be lowering prices on random collections across the site just for fun. It is only the Sale section that is 50% off MSRP though. The others that I choose will be between 30 and 40% off just for the weekend :)

Now for the Second giveaway loot... how about a Fat quarter Bundle of Alpine Wonderland with an advent calendar panel included? Cute yes? If you do not celebrate Christmas we will come up with something of equal value.

Garsh I love her little deer... so cute!

Now the winner of last weeks giveaway of the Melody Miller fabric and Amy Butler tote.

Number 27 is:

Lynda said...
have never been to market, but what are the new trends? Or are there any new trends?

Yay Lynda! And in answer to your question... a few months ago I did a blog post where I predicted that Butterflies were the new Birds... boy was I right. Everyone is doing butterflies. The other trend is Feathers. Feathers everywhere :) Lots of green and dark blue and lavendar. Oh... and Nautical. There are tons of new Nautical collections coming. I will email you in a minute Lynda.

Every once in a while I like to reward the first person to post on a giveaway post. We know that #1 doesn't come up randomly very often so I want to say thanks to Kelsey who said:

Cute fabric. Thanks for the chance

Jennyroo said...

Ack! My statistics background is screaming out after reading your post! The number 1 is drawn randomly just as often as every other number. If you are playing the lottery (say choose 6 numbers out of 49), you have just as good a chance of winning by selecting 1,2,3,4,5,6 as you do any other combination of numbers! LOL! Nothing like a little stats to make your Sunday night more fun, teehee. And agreed, it was super kind of you to give your #1 poster a special prize - if only for being so on the ball that she got her comment in first!

Kelly Smith said...

So cute! I love the little deer too!
