SCQ Blog Birthday Celebration - Giveaway Sponsored by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop



Welcome to the next celebration, because I've hit some quilty and internet milestones:
  • My 5 year blog birthday is in less than a month - on March 12, 2016 
  • I have over 6000 blog followers
  • I have over 6500 instagram followers
To thank you for being here, as part of my quilting community,  I have arranged for some giveaways from my sponsors over the next few weeks.

Today, my friends at Sew Sisters Fabric Shop is sponsoring a give away of  beautiful bundle of 10 fat quarters of these stunning Carkai Prints designed by Carolyn Friedlander.  Thank you Sew Sisters!


Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is a retail and online Canadian fabric shop. If you are in Toronto, you can check them out in person, they are not far from York University. Sew Sisters is a family business which began in 2000 and moved to the retail space in 2007. Sew Sisters also connect with the internet community via their blog and other social media.

Sew Sisters has a great variety of fabrics available online - including a large selection of Kona solids, modern prints, blenders, and more traditional prints too. There are several monthly fabric clubs as well. Sew Sisters also carry books, patterns, notions, thread and batting.

Sew Sisters regularly receive new fabric lines and they keep a huge selection of Kona solids in stock all the time. They ship all over the world and purchases over $100 ship free to Canadian destinations. Packages from Sew Sisters arrive very quickly too. The folks at Sew Sisters are lovely and their customer service is fantastic.


There are a few ways to enter this giveaway which will be selected by the random number generator:
  • Leave a comment on this blog post. 
  • If you are a follower of my blog - existing or new - leave a third comment here letting me know how you follow me.
  • To clarify, you can enter by leaving comments here as set out above and also by following the instagram post instructions if you would like. I will take the entries from both and draw from the entire pool.
  • Help me lovely people - if you don't have your email attached to your commenting profile, please leave it in your comment (emailhandle [at] provider.comorwhatever - is a way to make it more secure if you like.) If I cannot contact you I will immediately draw again. 
The giveaway will close at Midnight on Friday, March 11, 2016, MST, and I will use the random number generator to draw the winner from the comments on this post and on my instagram post and announce the winner on Saturday - which is the actual date of my blog's birthday.

Edited: This giveaway is now closed.

Thank you for all the inspiration, support and encouragement while I travel along my quilting journey!

By the way, I was sewing yesterday and will share that with you this week.

Best,

Leanne
