It’s been a busy week!  We received cartons and cartons of beautiful fabric, as well as some splendid new patterns.  Before we get to the giveaways, a few things:

Sewing Circles

Did you see our post about starting your own real-life sewing group?  Lots of people have logged onto the Forum and are looking for sewing buddies in their neighborhoods, so please check out the growing list of locations.  The what/where/when is totally up to you and your sewing circle.

If you’re specifically into quilting, several people have called our attention to The Modern Quilt Guilds starting up around the country.  You can join an existing guild, or start one of your own!

Guest Designer Fat Quarter Pack ~ Amanda Soule

A big thanks to Amanda for putting together such a beautiful pack.  We should have known they’ sell out in a flash!  The winner of the Amanda Soule pack is Michelle D.  Congratulations–we’ll be in touch.

“True Love”

Don’t forget about our Valentine contest!  There are lots of great prizes.  Also, make sure you’ve subscribed to our feed for February.  We have daily ideas that are either Valentine or wedding related, but can be applied to any special day.

New Colette Patterns

We are so excited about these new Colette patterns!  Aren’t the photos just gorgeous?!  We can’t wait to make the Sencha blouse.  Two new dresses, the blouse and an awesome coat.

Rawhide from Moda

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a really great western group, but this one definitely fits the bill.   Cute cowboys and cowgirls, classic paisleys, rodeo roses and perfect ditzies–yeehaw!

Woodland Delight by Paula Prass

This new collection is full of amazing prints in fresh colors.  Woodcut Garden is a favorite around here, and the Pebble Stones should be a stash essential.

Flora and Fauna by Patty Young

“Hive” has to be one of our favorite prints this season, and the group is full of several wonderful, unique designs.  Of course they’d all look great made up into one of Patty’s Modkid sewing patterns.

Misc. Michael Miller

Michael Miller just released a bunch of super cool novelty prints that would be great in kids’ rooms.   They all coordinate with one or more fabulous dots, so be sure to check out our “related products” if you’re looking for a “goes-with.”

Timber by Jessica Levitt

We’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Timber since Jessica Levitt first gave us a peek on her blog.  The colorways are splendid and the art nouveau designs are classic and sophisticated.

Alexander Henry 2D Zoo

Alexander Henry’s enormously popular, 2D Zoo, is now available in three new color combinations–Chocolate, Holly and Nude.

Charm Packs

We now have charm packs for Leanika, Hope Valley and Dolce.  These versatile little packages contain approximately 25 five-inch squares of fabric from the collection.

Free Fabric

This week we’re going to give away 9 prizes!  One Colette pattern, one charm pack and one yard to 7 people.  For your chance to win, you can do one of three things:

Of course you can comment all three places to increase your chances.  Have a great weekend!
