A Giveaway from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop

When Carol of Sew Sisters Quilt Shop contacted me awhile back to see if I would host a giveaway on my blog, I said yes, of course! Why? Because Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is one of the few Canadian online quilt shops that I have discovered, they offer tremendous low shipping rates, and they have a huge selection of fabrics, patterns, kits, and notions to suit me and just about everyone else! 

By hosting a giveaway, I also have the opportunity to tell you about the huge sale taking place at their shop by clicking HERE on September 17...



According to Carol, it is the biggest sale of the year at Sew Sisters. Here is what Carol tells me..."Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is a Canadian quilt store that celebrates all things quilting. We have a large selection of fabric, notions, books, patterns and kits. Whether you’re shopping online at sew-sisters.com, or in the store in Toronto, you will receive the best in products and service. At Sew Sisters we believe you should Buy Fabric. Not Postage! So we have the most reasonable rates on shipping in Canada. Visit our website to find out more!" Thanks, Carol, I have spent a lot of time planning my wish list for the 17th!

If you follow my blog, you know that I am all over the map with my quilting projects. My fabric choices include reproduction, batiks, modern, traditional, and lately I have become interested in novelty prints for some 'tween quilts on my agenda. In fact, I placed an order with Sew Sisters last week when the shop had a gigantic fat quarter sale and I received my treasures yesterday...the shipping was less than $4 and it arrived in a week! Here is what was in my package...lots of fun, bright fabrics...



Sew Sisters Quilt Shop has it all, plus so much more!  Make sure you visit them, especially on September 17, to enjoy their "biggest sale of the year."

So what is the giveaway?  Sew Sisters has gratiously donated a fat quater bundle of batiks...10 beautiful FQs from Robert Kaufman...


If you are interested in winning this scrumptious bundle, leave one comment at the bottom of this post by Tuesday, September 17 at 9:00 pm EST. This giveaway is open to International participants as well. Make sure I can contact you if you are a winner!

Thanks for coming by. It's a great day for quilting!

  89. Your comment about being all over the map with your quilting is so familiar. In my stashzilla there is a bit of everything...batiks, flannels, wools, whimsical prints, soft & feminine, primitive...it's all there! This set of batiks would work in very nicely with a "easter egg' coloration quilt that I've been stashing batiks for!
