Tips and Tutorials Tuesday – The Sew Sampler Box

March 22, 2016

Hello everyone!  I’m back from teaching longarming classes in New Hampshire, where I had a wonderful time.  The students were fabulous, and the shop was warm and cozy, despite the sudden drop in temperature and threat of a late winter snow.

Now that I am back home, I want to take a moment today thank one of my favorite companies in the quilting industry, Fat Quarter Shop, for their support of my blog.  I love working with the team at Fat Quarter Shop, and I’m always astounded by their generosity in our quilting community.  They don’t just sell us fabric, they are truly a part of our community. So I greatly appreciate their support, and their overall kindness and desire to bring us all a little happiness through design inspiration and textiles.

Today, Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring a giveaway here of a Jelly Roll of Pat Sloan’s Hometown Girl fabric line.

For my tip of the day, I wanted to let you know about Fat Quarter Shop’s latest fun program. The Sew Sampler Box. I can’t resist.  It’s just too much fun.  So I’ve signed up for this monthly treat, and I’ll be giving you a sneak peak here on the blog of my first sampler box. I’m already counting the days, waiting for it to arrive.  Because sometimes I just need a little mail that brings joy, instead of an endless stream of Minute Clinic bills (maybe that’s just at my house).


The way that the Sew Sampler Box works, is that at least 5 specially chosen items like fabric, notions, patterns, thread and anything in between, will be in the box each month.  They’ve also mentioned that we will get sneak peak items and bonus goodies. It sounds like so much fun — I love a good surprise.

And since it’s Tips and Tutorials Tuesday, please feel free to link up your own ideas from the last month.  And I hope you enjoy browsing all the creative, inspirational posts from bloggers in our community!

    I had the opportunity to attend a presentation by Pat Sloan. She was kind enough to sign a ruler holder i had purchased that day. Memories!
