A Special GIVEAWAY : :

Fabric Spark MC Handmade Bundle!

Today I have a fun Giveaway planned! First, today is my birthday, Woohoo!! Which is perhaps reason enough to celebrate, but also because I want to share some news! Last week, just after the kids were out the door for their last day of school, I hopped on the phone with Stephanie of the Modern Sewciety Podcast. I had no idea what she'd be asking me, we decided to just wing in, which made me quite nervous but was so much fun! Stephanie, being so incredibly sweet & easy to talk to, and me, being super chatty & filled with such excitement any chance I get to share about this hobby & community I love so much, made for some pretty fun, friendly, and effortless chatter! Did you listen?

@modernsewciety is sharing our recent chat today! It was so much fun and such a treat to talk about my passion for quilting and blogging! Check out episode 028 including @fatquartershop @fabricspark & me!

My segment was followed by an interview with Fabric Spark, a wonderful online modern fabric shop based in Toronto, Ontario, and a new blog sponsor of mine! Fabric Spark is a wonderful place to find all kinds of beautiful designer fabric, designer bundles, and unique bundles for your patchwork projects and quilts! They carry lots of sewing patterns, from quilt patterns to Kwik Sew garments for adults and kids, as well as sewing kits containing all of the notions you'll need to make it easy! After the podcast Daryl reached out, offering me the opportunity to create a custom designer fabric bundle for her shop, to use in an upcoming sewing project of my own, and to offer right here in this special Giveaway today!
