It’s that time of year….Christmas in July! + Giveaway!!!


Our friends over at Martingale are in the spirit!  The thermometer may say 96 degrees in the shade right now, but it feels more like Christmas over at their blog, Stitch This!  In fact, they just released a holiday-themed book chock-full of Christmas and holiday projects to help spruce up your home, called Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place.


In honor of the new book release, starting today July 14th, Martingale will be hosting a ‘Christmas in July’ week on their blog.  Do head over to Stitch This!, as every day, they’ll be hosting a fabric giveaway…and who knows, maybe you’ll have a chance at winning an early ‘prezzie’!!  Word has it that the Clothworks elves have even contributed some fabric for the giveaway, too!!

Besides the fabric giveaways, there will be plenty of holiday cheer to go around on Stitch This!  At a glance, it looks like Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place is welling with inspiration and ideas to spur your creative binges before the mad rush of the holiday season hits!


In conjunction with Martingale, Clothworks is also hosting a giveaway for a chance to win one copy of Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place.

Today through Thursday July 17th at 11:59 pm PDT, to enter into this giveaway– please leave a comment on this blog post.  Only one comment per person is permitted; open to folks who have a USA shipping address.  We will pick at random one name and post the announcement this Friday July 18th on our blog.  Martingale will send you a copy of your book once we’ve received your contact info.  Let the comments begin, everyone.  How’s this for a comment topic– share with us your holiday crafting/sewing/quilting projects that you have in mind to make for this season.

Good luck!
