Fat Quarter Shop - a sponsored giveaway Monday


Today I am delighted that the Fat Quarter Shop is generously sponsoring a give away of the Cameo Brambleberry Ridge Fat Quarter bundle. I am totally in love with this fabric line by the lovely Violet Craft and specifically asked for the opportunity to share some it with you.


I am sure you already know about the Fat Quarter Shop - they have a huge selection of fabric, notions, patterns, thread, books, magazines - you name it, they likely have it. Perhaps even more importantly, the Fat Quarter Shop is fully engaged with the online quilting community and it gives back to this community in many ways. This shop has a lot for everyone, even if you are not planning to spend a penny.


The FQS was started as a part time venture by Kimberly Jolly. It grew to become her full time job, and soon after that her husband joined her. Now the FQS team has 10 people. Their blog is called the Jolly Jabber and on it the FQS hosts quilt alongs and other sewing events,  it provides free tutorials, videos, patterns and all kinds of information of interest to quilters. You can also subscribe to the FQS Youtube Channel where you will find great videos full of tips and tricks and tutorials. I often watch the videos while I am sewing.


In the last several months, the FQS has been partnering with bloggers for their free patterns and and book launches - yes they also publish their own patterns and books. These partnerships are wonderful to read about because you can see the different approaches taken by different people using the patterns and books. It also means that you know that their patterns have been well tested before you use one of them.


The last thing I wanted to highlight about the Fat Quarter Shop is their great customer service. I have called them from Canada and they answer their phone and solve your issues in the friendliest and most helpful manner. They also have recently revamped their shipping policies to reduce this part of the costs of shopping on line for everyone, not just those living in the USA.


These fabrics are just so pretty. The parts that you see as gold on the swatches are metallics on the prints. I have washed, dried and ironed my pieces and the metallic parts cause no issues whatsoever.


Edited: This give away is now closed.

You can enter this give away by leaving a comment on this blog post. I will close this giveaway on Thursday, September 4th about 6 pm MDT and draw a winner randomly from the comments left on this post. In your comment, please check out the Fat Quarter Shop, their blog, or their Youtube channel and let me know what pattern you might want to try or what fabric you have recently bought or are hoping to buy or what videos you are planning to watch soon. If you follow my blog or me on instagram or flickr or some other way, you can leave a second comment, just let me know how you are connecting with me.

Please make sure you leave me a clear trail to contact you if you win  - email, instagram name, something. If I cannot find you I will draw another winner.

Good luck in this giveaway and a big thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring it. I am working on a quilt with these fabrics, I will try to get some photos to share with you soon.

Best,

Leanne
