Greetings and Happy Friday!! If you’ve been following us here at The Works lately, maybe you’ve read about our Where To Buy Tutorial post , featuring this new detail found on the new re-vamped Clothworks website. Kudos to you if you’ve even had a chance to test out this nifty feature! As we’re in the midst of shipping one of our newest releases, Vintage Sunshine by designer Ellen Crimi-Trent, I thought it would be fun to host a fat quarter bundle giveaway and have our participants try out the Where to Buy feature to find a local shop in their area that carries Vintage Sunshine. The deadline to enter the Vintage Sunshine Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway was expected to end last night, but since Vintage Sunshine is just now hitting shops, and we are approaching a long weekend, let’s extend the deadline to enter into the giveaway! All the more reason to continue to play around with the Where to Buy feature.
The Vintage Sunshine Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway deadline has been extended! The deadline to enter your comments will be Monday September 1, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Two Winners selected at random will be announced on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Each winner will receive one fat quarter bundle of fabrics from Vintage Sunshine.
Please go leave a comment over at the original post for the Vintage Sunshine Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway. When leaving a comment, please test out the Where to Buy feature on our website to find a shop that carries Vintage Sunshine. List the name of the shop in your comment and what kind of project you envision making with these fat quarters should you be the lucky winner!! Good luck!!
And now switching gears to talk about the Farm to Fabric Challenge. Have you all been sewing your hearts out, conjuring up some beautiful pieces of textile art using American Made Brand fabrics??!! You have 2 more days left of designing, creating, stitching, quilting, and taking pictures of your works of art to enter into this contest!! The deadline to enter submissions is Sunday August 31, 2014. Read more about the Farm to Fabric Challenge here. Good luck to all, especially you procrastinators! Nothing like working under a little pressure, eh?
And finally, some FRIDAY FUN!
Check out this adorable little fashion-plate decked out in creations made from the Unity fabric collection by Leslie Mark!!
This pic was sent in by the talented Mara, who works in fulfillment and helps out in the sample room here at Clothworks. Over the summer, Mara taught a kid’s sewing class with the help of her crafty daughter who’s modeling her projects in the pic above. Would you believe this talented young lady sewed all of this all by herself?!!! A totebag, skirt, infinity scarf, and headband– that’s more than I can say I’ve made in the past few months!! Looks like Mara’s daughter will be headed back to school in Clothworks style!
What about you? We’d love to hear your comments about any fun projects you’ve completed over the summer, or perhaps you took a fun class at one of your local shops? Please do tell….
Have a happy & safe weekend! 🙂
