I'm So Excited!



I have been holding this secret close for so long now and I was about to bust! But I can finally let it out. My friend Cindy - Fluffy Sheep Quilting - is officially an online retailer. Yay!!!


Fluffy Sheep Quilting

I have been living vicariously through her as she went about setting up shop. I got half the fun but none of the stress. Seems like a fair deal. The photos on the site are so enticing. This one makes me want to make hexies until the cows sheep come home.

You have to go take a look. Cindy is stocking some awesome fabrics, especially if you like modern, bright quilting fabric. This is the place to be.

And then go check out the coming soon button. Because I am so going to have some of this.

Birds in Cherry from the Oh Deer collection by Momo for Moda.

Lets not forget the ample supply of Kona Solids. 34 different, highly covetable colours.

Solids

If gorgeous modern fabrics are not enough incentive to have you stop reading me and get yourself over there, then how about finding Aurifil in every colour of the rainbow? Be patient if you want all the colours right now because they are currently in a shipment on its way to Ireland and will be listed very, very soon. Meanwhile, those essential basic colours we all use for piecing are there in abundance. Better yet, cones of Aurifil at amazing prices. Do what I did - go and do a price comparison. (I did - honestly!) Soon one of these cones will be entering my life.

Aurifil 50 Weight 2000


Fluffy Sheep Quilting has lots of little things that make life shopping online easier. In the top right hand corner you can click on your choice of currencies - Euros, Sterling, or US dollars. You can search for fabric in a myriad of ways - colour, type, collection, manufacturer, etc. She has a wishlist set up so that you can play at shopping but not forget what you really wanted for when the money is available.

And she supports her customer loyalty. When you make your first purchase, take the time to register your details because for every euro you spend you will receive one point. You can save points to exchange for goods in the shop, accumulate them and have a splurge, or just add them up until you have enough for a fat quarter. It is entirely up to you. I for one wish more online shops did this!!

To celebrate the launch of Fluffy Sheep Quilting, Cindy invites you to have a good shop over at Fluffy Sheep Quilting with 10% off orders of 20 euros or more, excluding shipping.  Just enter the coupon code Launch10% at checkout for your discount.  The coupon is good from today (14 May 2012) through to 21 May 2012

And also to launch Fluffy Sheep there is a giveaway right here today. I have the privilege of offering up a fabulous prize of my most favourite thread going. One of you get ready to win some Aurifil.

Aurifil 50 Weight 2000
First off, the winner will receive a 1300m spool of Auriful 50w thread,
in the colour of their choice out of those currently available.
Second, the winner will also receive
one sample pack of five different Aurifil threads
in five different weights and colours.
(I just won one of these and they are fabulous!)
Last, but most certainly not least,
the winner will receive a thread card
which shows every last one of the threads
available from Aurifil.
I will be dead jealous of whoever gets this!

To have a chance at winning, please go to the Fluffy Sheep quilting website and sign up for their newsletter. Then come back here and tell me that you did so.

For a second chance of winning follow Fluffy Sheep Quilting's Pinterest site. The link is here. You will find endless inspiration for modern quilting so this is a no brainer. Once you have please come back here and leave a separate comment telling me you are now following.

And for a third and final chance at winning, blog about Fluffy Sheep Quilting and this giveaway, and come back here and leave (yes, yet another) separate comment telling me you have done so.

That's it, three chances to win. Good luck!


Edit -


*** Sorry , forgot to say that the giveaway closes Friday, 18th May 2012 at 5pm - British time. The draw will be done shortly thereafter.

Oh, but that's not all. Because I am not the only one having a giveaway for Fluffy Sheep Quilting today. If you go over to see Hadley - Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle, Cindy - Fluffy Sheep Quilting (the blog), and Sarah - FairyFace Designs, you will find that they each have a different giveaway. Fluffy Sheep Quilting is launching in style!
