Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Okay something not so fun first. Today until 5 PM Pacific US time is the latest you can purchase and get the old shipping rates. Shipping goes up on Monday. Domestic isn't too bad but International and Canada go up a whopping $7 per envelope. I will try to do some shipping relief sales for my lovely internationl customers soon. I appreciate you ladies outside of the US so much and you have been such a huge support to me.

We have new fabric in:

Indie Chic by My Mind's Eye


I have to say I don't think that pictures do this one justice. It is so pretty IRL.

Cotton Shuffle by Riley Blake Designs

This is my new favorite basic. I think it looks a bit like yarn dyed linen only in bright colors and very usable cotton. It is so much fun!

So for the giveaway today how about a Layer Cake of 2wenty Thr3ee ... be the first person on your block to get some:

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you think 23 stands for. Now I know there is a reason. I am looking for creativity here :) It is still a random drawing but you have to answer the question to qualify, okay? Drawing is open until Midnight next Friday night 2/1/13.

Hope you all have a lovely Weekend!

Love,
Julie

  14. One short of twenty four, so you have one hour to sleep. I do not know, it reminds me of a house number, like in an address particularly as the font mixes numbers with letters. Like the different types of numbers you see on homes. But seeing the movie ticket maybe it is a cinema allusion, such as the numbers flashing on the screen before an old fashion film starts.

    ReplyDelete

  78. 23 is actually the number of times a toddler will repeat the same line from a movie over and over and over without stopping as long as he is not interrupted. I've actually tested this! It's also the number of photos you have to take just to get one good image.

    ReplyDelete
  95. It's a little-known fact that the fabric line was originally going to be called 2wenty-4our. (It just so happens that modern films are shown at 24 frames per second, creating the illusion of smooth motion to the human eye.) But just as Eric and Julie were finalizing the line in their studio, the cat noticed the light reflecting off of Eric's watch and jumped onto the design table to chase the reflection, startling Julie and causing her to simultaneously cry out and jump back, bumping into Eric, who was just removing the tea bag from his freshly brewed, piping hot cup of Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger tea. The hot tea splashed onto the cat, and (not caring at all for the dousing he'd just received), the cat sought the quickest path he could find to escape from the hot tea, upsetting the aloe vera plant in the process, and spilling dirt all over the final drafts. Frantic, Eric and Julie scrambled to save their precious work, but the lethal combination of Red Zinger and potting soil was fatal to one of the designs. THAT is how the fabric line came to be known as "2wenty-Thr3e".

  99. I think it refers to the old expression 23 skidoo. It's really old because it was before my time.

    ReplyDelete
  100. 23 is how old we hope to feel when we wake up every morning. If only my body was on the same plan...

    ReplyDelete

  102. Maybe there are 23 prints in this new line of fabric just calling out to the buyer? Cute colors, for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I think it stands for 2 parents and 3 children. Maybe the designers have a "family" business? Just guessing. Thanks for the giveaway. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  104. My guess is that it is the subway (or equivalent) stop that one has to get off on to get to the theater in their local!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I would definitely say that it is for the 23 missed date nights when you have a new baby (even under a year) that wakes you up 23 times per night or makes you clean the floor 23 times in a week or causes 23 extra loads of laundry, extra showers, extra baths. It could stand for the stolen 23 minutes of snuggle time when all is quiet and your baby sleeps peacefully for a whopping 23 minutes... (If you couldn't tell, I have an almost 1yo that is a whirlwind!)

    ReplyDelete
  106. No clue and I am really a lousy guesser too!

  109. Hello,

    Thanks for the chance to win some fabulous fabric. I think the meaning behind 2wenty th3e is the year they discovered the bliss of creating.

    ReplyDelete
  110. How about 23 first dates before finding Mr. Right? :) Probably not even close! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I think it is called 23 because your 23rd year is the best one. It is the one before the 24th. The 24th is too close to the 25th so your 23rd year is the best!
    dluckyz at excite dot com

    ReplyDelete
  120. My age...........in 1992......wow, how sad!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Apparently it takes 23 seconds for blood to circulate around your body. Whatever reason it's called 2wenty Thr3e, it would be lovely to have some! Thanks for the chance :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. Could be either an important date or the number of the house they live in! Thanks for the give away and I'd love a shipping relief sale as I enjoy shopping in your store but that rise in shipping means I'm going to have to cut back to buying only sale fabrics I think, my credit card will appreciate it but I'm sad!

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks for a chance at it.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I do not know what 23 is,
    I do not have a clue.
    Is it the number of camera's she's owned?
    Or the movies she has viewed?

    The amount of weight gained
    from eating the popcorn
    at the theaters she has visited?
    Or the number of changes they have made in this fabric line that's now listed?

    The number of fights they have had
    in deciding what to call it?
    Or something simple and we'll find
    it's the dollars in her wallet?

    I do not know what 23 is
    I tried to find it on swagbucks.
    Could not find anything,nothing at all,
    I'll end this by saying "Oh shucks"




    ReplyDelete
  130. Wow, no idea but so many fantastic answers! Maybe they've know each other for 23 years? It's too early here for creativity ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  131. I think 23 stands for how many times a certain image is repeated in one of the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Shelton Cooper's answer: Twenty-three is the ninth prime number, the smallest odd prime that is not a twin prime. Twenty-three is also the fifth factorial prime, the third Woodall prime.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Id say its the date they met or how many years they've been together ;)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Actually, I've put the #23 in just about every password I use....it's the date of our wedding anniversary. So maybe she did the same thing. So I'd say either a wedding date or her birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Wow it's driving me crazy that I can't find an answer!! Well I'll go with idealism, when I was a teenager I thought 23 was the perfect age to be, and that's when I'd get married and start a perfect life :)

    ReplyDelete
  139. I think it's 23 items from the 50's (or the 60's) that are pictured in this fabric line!!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I would love to know the real reason! Maybe it is because they wish they were 23 again. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  141. 23 different colors in a good fabric stash :)

    ReplyDelete
  142. It's said that 42 is the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything, but maybe with the recession and all they had to scale back a little :P

  149. Number of times in an hour they've told their 2 year old to not take all the pillows off the couch and jump on it? Oh wait, that's me...

  153. At first I thought it might refer to the road that the drive-in is located on, but that can't be it! FYI: Julie, I have a daughter in Sweden that I mail to frequently, and I checked the new international postage and discovered that for "flats" (post office term for large envelopes like manila envelopes) the rates for four pounds are less than $1.50 more on Jan. 27 than the old rates. Lizzie tells me that often the first class pkgs. arrive more quickly than the Priority pkgs. Offering a first class international option may help you -- and your international customers. I sure hope so -- those girls in Europe cannot make it without FABRIC!

  154. Probably because it takes at least 23 times for me to do something before I get the hang of it, lol.

  155. There's a real reason but what fun it that :) So... It's named after Imelda Stratford. The designers met her at afternoon tea in a little corner shop. They noticed Imelda's feathered hat in pink, joined her and listened to her retelling of days as an adventurer and photographer. The summer she was 23 she had a romance with a carni and starred for a brief time in one of his shows as a ballerina (Imelda was not a dancer but challenged herself to conquer new horizons and live life fully). At the end of the season they parted ways, wishing each other eternal summer and happiness.

  156. The designer was 23 when something good happened to her and she wants to commemorate it?

  157. The number of hours they knew each other before they knew they were in love! Sorry! Hopeless romatic here!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Just a random name so everyone would be intrigued? Anyway, it's a fun collection!

  159. Twenty Three is a reminder - tick tock, if it's twenty past three, tick tock or three twenty, tick tock.......
    I've spent 5 minutes too long at the sewing machine and I'm late collecting my daughter from school AGAIN!!!!

  160. 2wenty thr3e - maybe the number of times you have to tell yourself to stop sewing and go to bed, before you finally do!
    The rise in the international postage rate is awful :-( - fabric here costs about £12 a metre (that's about $19) sometimes more. It would make sense to order a lot at once, but then you're likely to get hit with customs charges too. Overall I don't think it will stop us ordering from the US, just maybe not as often.

  161. 23 skidoo! a 'twenties phrase, first for leaving in a hurry ... later a dance, from the roaring twenties, maybe [memory is a bit hazy]

    ReplyDelete
  162. A measure of how much time it took to put the collection together?

    ReplyDelete
  163. I would say it is the 23 countries they have visited. In any case, very lovely!

  164. Because of the tickets I am guessing it is the number of tickets she bought for the kissing booth to kiss Harrison Ford.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Harrison Ford in the kissing booth totally blew my idea out of my brain. Let's see.. oh yeah, 23 is the number of times you go online to buy a zipper before you actually buy that zipper instead of fabulous fabrics.

  166. 23 different fabrics??? No Clue, but I'm loving reading everyone else's guesses.

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  167. I think it is the number of tattoos on the tattooed lady at the circus! :)

    Very cute line of fabric!

  168. I'm going to guess there were 23 momentos from a special day.

    ReplyDelete
  169. My guess is that 23 is the best age! You are young enough to really be silly still, but old enough to know when to draw the line :) I miss being 23 haha

  170. I'm guessing 23 is the age of the designers?

  171. I think Eric and Julie Comstock fell in love when they was 23 :)
    thanks for the chance to win some of this awesome fabric.

  172. Twenty-Three= The number of children you plan to have/adopt! (I was trying to make you laugh!)

    ReplyDelete
  173. Hrm, it's a bit vintage in feel, maybe it was inspired by 1923? :)

    ReplyDelete
  174. 23, mmm, let's see, for me, 23 is:

    1/2 the pounds I'd like to lose;
    2 years more than I'd like to be (let's start over);
    3 more than the number of toes & fingers I have;
    23 is the number of UFO's on the shelf (and that's just the tops to be quilted);
    32 is the age I'd like to be (a better age than 21 and the inverse of 23;
    Ok, now if you didn't laugh at that, I have at least 23 things on my 'to do' list and I'll be lucky to get 2.3 done, one-tenth. I like the new RB fabric too. Might need a FQ bundle...

    ReplyDelete
  175. The age we all wish we still were?

    ReplyDelete
  176. the price of a first class postage stamp when the designer became a designer? or when the designer was born? anyway...i think it has something to do with postage.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Maybe the number of years Moda has been making fabrics..

    ReplyDelete
  178. Those new Riley Blake blenders are awesome!
    Hmmmm....I see cameras, tickets, different math-type symbols..... 23 equations to come up with in the computer to design the fabric? Twenty-three colors involved in the printing (you know those color dots in the selvages).
    Maybe because it's a travel log...there are supposed to be 23 countries with Spanish as their official language.

  181. What a fun bundle of fabric! I think the number 23 is the average number of UFOs that quilters have, hehe.

    Julie

    ReplyDelete
  187. I think perhaps it's the age that Julie & Eric Comstock were when they first met - maybe? Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  188. Hmm, maybe the number of marshmellows that Julie can fit in her mouth when playing chubby bunny.
