Friday Fun Day the Giveaway and a Birthday Party

Hi Everyone,

It's Friday! Woot! It is Open Sew night at the shop and the longest day of the year... that means more sewing time right?

Tell ya who I wish could be here for sewing tonight... my friend Sally. Sally and her family have graciously hosted us the last two years for Fall International Quilt Market because they live in Houston. If you were lucky enough to go to Spring Market you might have seen one or two of her works in some very popular booths like this:

Pic by Jill Mcnamara, Fabirc is Collage by Carrie Bloomston, Quilt by Sally, Quilting by Angela Walters

Or maybe this one:

Fabric is Madhuri by The Quilted Fish
So Sally's blog is having a Birthday this week and she wanted to invite you over... she has been doing tutorials all week and is doing a big giveaway tomorrow.

For the Giveaway today we are giving away this charm pack.

This is a charm pack of every print in Dear Stella's Spring Catalog. I don't know how many are in there but I would guess around 200 charms.


Here is is stacked up next to a Jelly Roll so you can see how tall the stack is...

To win all you have to do is take a look at our coming soon page and tell us what you like best, besides Briar Rose and Collage because I know there are already millions of rabid fans for those LOL
The Giveaway is open until 6/28

Have a super weekend!
