Plush Addicts Giveaway!


The folks at the online fabric shop Plush Addict have achieved an enormous amount in the short couple of years since its founder, Kellie, set up her original shop selling all the bits and bobs for making cloth nappies. They now also sell an extensive range of quality quilting weight cottons, haberdashery and lots lots more – pop round and have a look, I defy you to come away with credit card unscathed… I have heard from very pleased customers about the wonderful service they have received, and I am not surprised, because they offer same day dispatch, good prices and a generous loyalty scheme. I am particularly impressed that they have recently introduced a free, UK postage paid returns service. I think this is great, because as we all know, buying fabric online does have its downside – when the fabric doesn’t quite turn out to be the perfect match you had hoped for!

So, I am really delighted to be hosting a giveaway for The Family Plush (Plush Addicts is run by Kellie, her husband, her sister-in-law and her mum!) – and there’s a fabulous prize for you lovely people. A layer cake (a pack of 10″ squares) of the gorgeous collection called Daydreams by Kate Spain for Moda. And, if that wasn’t enough, the winner can also choose 2 metres of any fabric of their choice to go with it.

  1. Hmmmm…probably something computer geekish…he likes to fix hardware problems, and I like to teach people how to use software…

  2. My family would love to run a B&B, with fresh food from our garden, and the house would be filled with stuff I’ve made (including the furniture!).

  3. Fab fabrics – thanks for the opportunity to win, just thinking of all the lovely things I could make. Following on facebook.

  4. Ours would definitely be a food-related business – maybe an asian street food stall?
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. What a lovely giveaway! My family would be good at running a cake shop – we all love baking, and eating, cakes!

  6. I would love to make pretty fabric baking acccessories ie aprons, oven gloves, table cloths etc especially for the little ones, combining my two fave things – crafting and baking yummy cakes of course! Or just special little cupcakes. If only, just to be able to stay at home with my gorgeous baby rather than work :(

  7. We already run a business from home and I work pretty much full time! Serious graft goes into it 24/7 so I’m always really pleased when a family business or small start up manages to make it and prosper!
    Like you I love Plushaddict. Customer service is the one thing that will make or break my loyalty and so far they’ve been faultless!
    I’m. Ot on Facebook but already follow them on Twitter so another short comment will follow!

  8. I have always wanted to have a little cafe that served pie of all types. I know my family members would be my best customers!

  9. We could run a laundry! All that goes on in this house is washing washing washing! 3x sporty sons and 1x sporty husband = washing. We’d offer an expert service!
    I’d love to win the fabrics, I browse Plush addict website far too often than is good for me.

  10. I think my family would be great at running a pet hotel. We’re all a bit cat and dog crazy and don’t mind a guinea pig or rabbit either ;-)
    Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway!

  11. HI, I think our family could have ran a Quilt Shop:I’d order the Fabric;Hubby could do the books; daughters could clerk>it’d be a hit! Thanks for sharing a great giveaway!

  12. I would say catfish noodling. We have catfish in this area that weigh over one hundred pounds.

  13. Hmmm – I think our family business would be a B & B. My sister has always thought she’d like to run one and I could bake the cake for her!!! And make pretty cushions and curtains and quilts, of course!

  14. Beautiful fabrics – it would have to be a creative family business – we’re all good at making things – especially mess!

  15. We have a farm and to accommodate everyone’s wishes we would add a B&B, a coffee shop/gallery, a plant nursery, an animal sanctuary, a carpentry, and organize photography workshops, I don’t know if we would have time to do any farming!!

  16. My family would run a great vintage resale shop and craft shop! We do try, we have an Etsy but it’s not very successful just yet.

  17. Thanks for the great giveaway and for introducing Plush addicts! We live in a very old house, so maybe we would run a rehabbing business.

  18. I adore Kate Spain and Daydreams!
    My husband is a firefighter. His dad was a firefighter. His brother is a policeman and firefighter. His other brother is a dispatcher for police and Emergency Services. I guess you could say it runs in the family!

  19. Our dream is to run a family ranch with various seasonal courses for young adults – spring leadership, summer adventure training, autumn crafting/sewing/quilting, winter music & art., etc.

  20. My in-laws already run a pharmacy as a family business, not sure what I would do if I started one up though!

  21. No clue… I love to be a sales person in my professional life. I would sell whatever comes…

  22. We’ve talked about this! Hubby would run a “Jerky” (think beef jerky, chicken meat shop) joined onto a quilting shop so the men could have something to do when the women go to the quilting shop!

  23. I think my family would be great at running a quilt shop related biz–they are great supporters of my hobby and pattern business!

  24. Greetings from Oklahoma, USA. We would make a good go at a fabric museum. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  25. I think we could run a gluten free birthday cake business – not sure there would be much call for it though!

  26. My husband and I have been playing Mario kart 8 every spare moment since it came out. He he. Me and my mum could offer a pretty good cake making and decorating service.

  27. We would have a “beach hut ” style sewing studio and cafe located right on the shore. Oh and while I’m dreaming maybe the beach could be a private , picturesque little cove…….

  28. Have followed on twiiter too: (ID:@pltinabox)
    thank you for a chance to win.. and my hubby and myself are already in partner in life and business.. and I’m happy that we can work together.. ;)

  29. Great giveaway! Based on yesterday’s efforts, my family should start a Spring Cleaning business – we had a lot of fun, unbelievably! x

  30. I think my family would be great at running an amusement park or some kind of indoor park for kids!

  31. Our best family business would be a bed and breakfast, we have so many friends and family staying LOL at least we would get a little payment.

  32. My family could be in the disguise-the-room-you-keep-your-valuables-in-as-a-kiddie-toy-room-(complete-with-Legos-on-the-floor)-so-burglars-don’t-want-to-break-in business! :D

  33. Family business? Daughter is a WAHM making beautiful children’s clothes and accessories. I love sewing and knitting and would love to join forces with her. Best of both worlds; doing what you love with a beautiful person you love!

  34. Please enter me into the Plush Addict giveaway. Love the website and visit it regularly as I receive their newsletter/e-mails. Thank you.

  35. Family business?… I’d hire my stay-at-home-daddy husband out as the ultimate handyman: exquisite cook, very house proud and expert DIYer, whilst I indulge in making nick nacks (wannabe crafter, lol).

  36. Businesses to run?! I think that we could run a de-cluttering business as I have had a lot of practice lately. It must be easier to de-clutter someone else’s house as you don’t have memories attached to EVERYTHING,

  37. My family have a laundrette, and used to have a computer game shop but my dream would be to run creative textile workshop where people could come and have fun experimenting!

  38. I’m already a huuuuge fab of Plush Addict 💛

    My family would be perfect for running a handmade crafts / tea room / cook shop kitchenware business! This is our “pipe dream” (for now 😉☺️)

  39. Maybe a brewary, but we are probably better off letting other people run them and just support them by drinking their beer.

  40. I’m a big fan of Plush Addicts – the EN71-3 info on their fabrics really helps with CE marking toys.

    If my family ran a business it would be…you know we are all so different I can’t imagine us working together, so our business would be…bound to fail!

  41. Thanks for a great giveaway! I want to set my teenager up in business as a technology expert setting up TVs, DVD, phones,laptops and ipads for people – he can do it without thinking about it and i just sit and scratch my head at the instructions!

  42. I’ve just started making dresses for my girls and hope to make a business out of it eventually. Plush are sooooo helpful with colourmatching – love them. I already follow Plush Addict on FB.

  43. I follow Plush addict on facebook and love their great service. I would love to run a craft shop with handmade dolls and crochet items. Thanks for such a beautiful competition.xx

  44. I love Plush, I order from them frequently and am always really impressed! My husband and I dream of setting up our own sheep farm – I’d knit with all the wool!

  45. What a fab giveaway! I love Plush Addict, they are great and the service is brilliant. We have a family farm high in the hills of Northumberland and I would love to expand this and run a sewing and quilt retreat. Maybe one day…….

  46. Well at the moment I run my own bridal adornment business, but other than my husband it is not a family affair!! Pearls and small children do not mix. So for a family business perhaps a craft cafe, with amazing coffee, fresh homemade cake (made by my 6 year old), and fabric, beads, silversmithing, and perhaps pottery painting available too x Oh but the cafe has to be in Saundersfoot, my four girls can be serving minions! My mom can help with running tuition, and it would be fabulous!

  47. Great giveaway I have been browsing the shop today to see what I can buy I already follow plush addict on Facebook will pop to twitter now

  48. I love Plush addict – and I can certainly testify that their customer service is wonderful! I also love Kate Spains designs, so thanks for the chance :)

  49. A business? Hmm. In my dreams I would live in a lovely house with lots of bedrooms and run quilting retreats in a converted barn in the garden! My husband would cook and serve cakes to keep up the quilters’ energy levels!

  50. Kate Spain is one of my favourite designers! Thanks for the chance to win. I’m now following Plush Addict on FB.😊

  51. Hi. Just followed Plush Addict on facebook but I couldn’t wait after reading yesterday’s blog post and I created an account last night at the online shop.

  52. Love the idea of a giveaway, I am positively drooling at the thought. You are a wonderful champion of all things fabric!

    1. I don’t think my family could agree on one business. My husband would want a pizza business, my oldest daughter would do party planning, my son would have a Jiu Jitsu Gym, my youngest daughter would run an art gallery and I would design quilts. I guess we have it all covered. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com
