Fabric news for Sunday

Giveaways

The very talented Lisa of U-Handbag fame is giving away to a whole set of 10″x8″ pieces of  Happy Go Lucky fabric designed by Nel Whatmore for Westminster fibres. It looks like a very pretty floral-themed collection – if you want to be in with a chance of winning it then you need to pop round to the U-Handbag blog to enter.

February’s giveaway at Saints & Pinners will have 2 lucky winners. You need to sign up here, before the 9th Feb, to be in with a chance of winning one of two Tanya Whelan Dolce fabric packs

There will be three lucky winners over at The Sewing Directory this week. Lovely Julia, from one of my favourite shops, Gone to Earth, has provided 3 different Amy Butler bundles for prizes.  Here’s where you need to sign up.

Bits and Pieces


I am loving the proliferation of lovely fabric packs that sellers are putting together,  either scrappy collections or more consciously put together co-ordinating smaller pieces.

The great thing about scrap packs is that fabulous ‘lucky dip’ quality. Sadly, over at Saints and Pinners they’ve sold out of their fab-looking scrap rolls, but at  The Fabric Loft, Lizzet has put together some lovely scrap packs and at M is for Make there are some gorgeous Fat Quarter Scrap rolls.

Meanwhile Oakshott fabrics have these wonderful Colour Wraps (see left) – carefully chosen sets of fat eighths with the emphasis on colour and texture – they’re really glorious.

Emma over at the wonderful blog for fabric lovers – It’s All About the Fabric – has news that the rather wonderful designer Jane Foster is selling her surplus-to-requirements vintage fabrics on Etsy – at VintageFabricJane. There’s some great pieces that are already being snapped up!

New In

Seamstar have the pretty Hideaway collection (see right) by Lauren & Jessi Jung – read more about it on the Seamzine blog. It sounds like a very versatile collection – with 33 prints in 4 colourways.

Meanwhile over at Quilter’s Cloth, they have one of my personal favourites – La Petite Ecole by French General – gorgeous designs in shades of muted red, brown & pale blue.

Enjoying your fabric buying and creating this week! And don’t forget there’s still *just* (until Tues 8th)  time to sign up for my Scrappy Fabric Swap. And a great big thank you to everyone who’s signed up so far.
