Friday Giveaway

Because it's Friday.
Because it's the last Friday before school starts.
Because fabric is fun.
Because my friend owns a fabric shop.

I am so pleased, nay, thrilled to be doing this giveaway today, sponsored by The Intrepid Thread. Julie is a member of The Quilted Fish Design Team. Tired of not finding what she liked in her local shops, she decided to open an online business. I am so glad she did! She has a great selection of modern fabrics, and her prices are to die for. Plus, she often has discount codes on her blog or in her newsletter. All of that, and she sponsors a weekly giveaway. {sigh} I love Julie.

Up for grabs today is a fat quarter bundle of Promenade in blue:
So pretty, right? Think of all the fun you could have with this! You have three ways to enter:

  1. Follow my blog, either through the follower or on a reader of some sort. You won't regret it. I'm funny and pretty. Leave a comment telling me you follow, and also telling me where you're from.
  2. Follow Julie's blog. Leave a comment telling me.
  3. Blog, facebook, or twitter this giveaway. Leave a comment telling me.
So there you go! Good luck to you. The winner will be announced next Friday, September 2. In the meantime, go check out The Intrepid Thread on etsy. You can also visit her website and see what she has coming soon. Such great stuff!
