6 FQ Dolce giveaway from Saints & Pinners

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED
I have a confession ... which is that I don't much like shopping for fabric on line. I like to be able to see and feel the fabric I am going to buy.  The other day I wanted to buy some fabrics to go with my Amy Butler LOVE FQs but could not fathom by holding them up to the computer whether they would go at all with the fabrics I was looking at on line.  So I emailed Jo and Fran at Saints & Pinners to ask their opinion and the next morning an envelope bursting full of sample fabrics dropped through my letter box.  I could feel the quality and weight of the fabrics and see the true colours against my fabrics so I made my choices and placed my order.

Another thing you can do on the Saints & Pinners website is to build a fabric 'wish list'.  This allows you to see your choices side-by-side before you put them in your basket which is so important when putting fabrics together. So if you need fabric samples don't be afraid to drop them a line. Their great customer service makes them stand out as an online shop with a 'real shop' feel.
And now to the giveaway.  To celebrate the beautiful hot summer we are having this year here in the UK, Saints & Pinners are giving away a six pack of Tanya Whelan Dolce fat quarters in bright, fresh, summery colours. In the bundle above (shown here sitting in my garden in the sunshine yesterday) there is a co-ordinating set of Dolce Lanas and Lillys but this is one of those great giveaways where you can pick your own 6 FQ selection.  The winner will be chosen on 20 July at 10am UK time by random number generator and you have three chances to win - so leave three comments for maximum luck.

1. Leave a comment telling me what you would do with these fabrics if you won them.
2. Pop over to the Saints & Pinners shop and come back and let me know in a comment which are your 6 favourite of the Tanya Whelan fabrics on sale over there.
3. Click to follow me (or let me know that you already do).

Good Luck to everyone!

  22. What a lovely shop to be so accomodating and sending out samples! I really love to shop for fabric but my LQS doesn't have the fun fabrics I like. Soooo ... I have a hodge podge of pieces that didn't fit into my plan after I ordered them. It is hard to tell from a little square on the computer screen.

    Thanks for organizing this cool giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I checked out the lovely shop and here are six fabrics I loved: Dolce bamboo garden grey, rita grey, lana orange, lily white, glamour, ella grey. I love them all actually so these were just my top contenders!

  146. i'm a follower of your blog. i agree about how wonderful it is to feel the fabrics and compare colors and patterns. for me, however, i can't get out very easily, so...the two choices are online or sending my very helpful but color-blind hubby to get fabrics. thankfully, the women at the shops are always amused by his shopping for me and so very helpful to match things i send little samples of!! i think the idea of sample board is great, too. like to use that on the shops that do offer it. have a great day!!

    ReplyDelete

  154. Oh dear, please do NOT start laughing and blow tea out of your nose! It might land on a quilt top you just finished. Then again, that may rekindle the "tea dyeing" craze, and you can write about how YOU made it popular once again!

    Very nice blog, and the Dolce and Darla fabrics are lovely. I think the Bamboo Garden Pink and GLamour Fushia, with the grey, would be lovely for a handbag.

    Thanks for sharing, hope over to my blog next week to enter MY giveaway! - Mary

  173. What wonderful fabric!!! What could I do with such beautiful fabric?...well after I sat and looked at it for a while, I guess I would use it in quilt for my granddaughter ....or more likely I would give it to my 86 year old aunt who still pieces quilt tops...and nothing makes her happier than getting a pretty piece of material....donna
