Sew and Quilt Launch! & Fabric Giveaway!!

Hi friends! I wanted to let you all know my new online quilting fabric shop Sew and Quilt is now officially open!! It's been a long time in the making and it's been quite a roller-coaster to get this far, but I'm super proud of it and I hope you will all enjoy shopping here soon. 

Sew and Quilt is a fabric shop for all quilters and crafters who appreciate beautiful fabrics! I have a small selection to start, but I already have others on order including a large order of Pam Kitty Love collection!! I'm so excited for that to arrive! I hoping to build up my selection of 1930's reproduction prints, as I felt there wasn't a wide variety of these prints available online in the UK when I decided to set up Sew and Quilt. I also have the stunning Bloomsbury Gardens collection by Liberty in the pastel colour-way in stock, I'm dying to cut into these! They have the most gorgeous feel to them, so soft. 




I also have a great selection of Christmas prints in stock such as Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey, Dear Mr Claus collection by Moda, as well as some sweet scandinavian themed Christmas fabric I managed to source from the UK. So you will see lots of fun projects I'll be creating with these over the coming festive season. 
   So I've decided to start the shop with a celebration by giving away this lovely stack of six Christmas printed fat quarters to one very lucky reader!
All you have to do to win this bundle of joy is do one of the following, or more! for additional chances of winning:
1. Visit Sew and Quilt, and comment on this blog post telling me what's your favourite fabric in the shop!
2. Become a follower of this blog and comment on this blog post to let me know.
3. 'LIKE' my Sew and Quilt Facebook page and comment on this blog post to let me know.
4. Tweet about my Sew and Quilt store and comment on this blog post to let me know.

The competition is open until Monday 15th October, and the winner will be chosen on Tuesday 16th October at random.

OK, now time for my Oscar winning thank you's!
   I couldn't have even started all of this without the help of Robin, my now - fiancé (as of last week!! - he proposed in Rome, so perfect!). He's been doing all the figures for me and keeping me in check when I've wanted to go overboard with the buying! I also want to say a HUGE thank you to my friend Alastair Sopp, a super talented photographer / designer  - who created the website for me, as well as my logo etc. He's a clever boy ;)

I hope you all enjoy shopping! xoxo
