I never win giveaways until...

...today I won one.  And look at these fabulous fabrics I won from the Eternal Maker, a bricks and mortar and online shop in Chichester, West Sussex, UK.  They are all Japanese Echino linens with cameras, buses, helicopters and glasses (the type you use for reading, not the type you use for drinking).  I am wondering if they might be the kind of thing my big sister would like in a quilt.
 The Eternal Maker sell a lot of these Japanese imported fabrics, a lot of fresh modern fabrics, and have a huuuuge selection. You canfind them at many of the quilting shows around the country, including Festival of Quilts and the Knit and Stitch shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate.

The giveaway was held on the Sewing Directory's blog.  If you haven't come across the Sewing Directory, it is a great site to visit for anyone interested in sewing.  It lists suppliers, courses, seamstresses and groups throughout the UK as well as sewing projects, articles, book reviews, news (new products, special offers etc) and has weekly competitions with great prizes.  Anyone thinking about Christmas projects might be interested in their latest competition with a top prize of a Janome DXL 603 with the winner being published in Cloth Magazine.

  3. Oh my gosh, as soon as I saw them i knew I LOVED them. They're brilliant materials. Mouth-watering in quilting terminology. Sort of 50s in feel but with modern motifs. Sigh. But I can't steal your giveaway. Possibly. Could I?

  6. oooo, lucky, lucky Lynne! Just what the doctor ordered for a quilter with a hurty finger. I adore this fabric and finally broke down and bought some (which is waiting patiently at home for me to return from holiday!). I definitely want to make myself a nice new wallet from the camera print.

  8. Lynne, you've been holdng out on us. I don't recall seeing a post on YOUR blog about the Sewing Directory's Giveaway. I just checked out and bookmarked the blog--it's really cool.

    Congrats on you win. You picked a great one to win. If only I had known about it......

    Hopefully, your fingers well on the mend. In the future, be more careful with that rotary cutter.
