Tuesday Giveaway - Birthday Celebrations Continue

Instead of a stack this week there is a Tuesday giveaway.  To celebrate our 2nd Birthday in our shop, in Kilbirnie and our first ever sale I decided to host a giveaway rather than have a Tuesday stack.  It is our Birthday - but you get the gift.

The giveaway is for a fat quarter of each of the fabrics below.  But wait there is more - (no not a free set of steak knives) but an extra set of fat quarters for a friend of your choosing.  So one set for you and one for a friend. 


To win the giveaway please leave a comment with the name of your friend and what you would like to make if you won the fabrics.

Commenting here gives you one entry (please make sure your contact details are either linked to your account or leave an email address).
You can also visit us on Facebook and leave a comment on the giveaway post and get a second entry.  

The giveaway is open until 6pm (New Zealand time) next Monday 2nd June and a winner will be drawn next Tuesday.  I am happy to send the giveaway anywhere in the world.

Meanwhile the Birthday Sale continues if you would like to pick up some bargains in store or on line.

I have been eyeing up some of these fabrics so to win them would just be fabulous. They would be perfect for making bibs for my niece, and maybe if I'm feeling brave enough - a dress for her as well. The friend I would share this prize with is Liane Rowe, she's an absolute magician with a sewing machine and has inspired me to learn how to sew (and is patiently putting up with my million and one questions!)

I haven't had many novelty fabrics in my stash. This would add in my pile ready for baby quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

That fabric bundle just makes me want to say...'Hippo Birdy to you'

Lovely fabric and I would share with my friend Anne.

We both make Linus quilts for our Guild so thats what I'd use the fabric for.

Michele T said...

Happy Birthday and what a fun generous giveaway to celebrate!! My friend Sandra would be thrilled to win a stack with me and it would be interesting to see what each of us would make with it...kinda like a fun challenge!

Cal said...

I was just looking at two tutorials for drawstring bags, one for gym clothes another to store toys, puzzle pieces etc, and these fabrics would be perfect for either. So I would definitely make one or two bags for the kids.
I would give the extra set of fat quarters to my friend Paula who owns a sewing machine but has not yet felt sure enough to use it.

Kay said...

Happy birthday. I would love a stack for my friend, Bridget, she recently became a grandmother for the first time and is sewing like crazy. In my home these would probably turn into hexies and a bag. Thanks for a lovely giveaway. x

Happy birthday! I would use the fabrics in a quilt for my grandson. I would share with my mom, pat, who is also a quilter.

Lisa said...

I have a sweet quilty friend who has stepped up to the plate more than once in the past few months.. You see she lives in the same town as my daughter, and my daughter just fought a battle with colon cancer. I can't tell you how much it meant to this mama who lives far away to know that Maria Johnson was a phone call away...

Leonie said...

oooo how lovely Lyndy!! If I won it would be used mostly for quilting, perhaps a cushion or two and some paper piecing! How to choose a friend?? Probably Juliet from Tartankiwi :)

Sarah @ mila+cuatro said...

Happy Birthday, Stitchbird store, when I visit Wellington I will definitely come and oogle all the lovely things in the shop. My friend's name is Vanessa, I think I would fussy cut the little red riding hood print as include it in a quilt for my daughter.

Peaches1003 said...

I would share with my friend Helen - she is the reason I got into sewing in the first place. I love having a crafty friend to matter away with but would love her just as much even if she weren't crafty. I think these sweet fabrics would make great reading corner pillows. Some for home and some for daycare / school

Lisa Marie said...

I would love to use those cute fabrics to make a child's quilt. And maybe use some scraps to make some little zip pouches for a child to store treasures. It would be exciting to win for a friend as well -- sharing the joy makes it extra special. My friend Kim would get such a thrill!

Sarah said...

I would make something for my girls, and share the second bundle with my friend Ashlee, who loans me her sewing machine whenever I need to do free motion quilting (I have an old one). Thanks! sarah@forrussia.org

Leanne M said...

Happy birthday! Those fabrics are so cute. I can never decide on the spot what I would make with fabrics, but it'd be fun to have those pigs' butts staring at me while I decided. I would pick my friend Sara for the other bundle, she's pretty handy with the sewing machine. Thanks for the chance.

Karen Caves said...

She is a beginning quilter, with a new baby girl. I would make a tote, and I would help her make her daughter a quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

Wendy said...

Happy birthday! I'd like to send a bundle to my friend Kerry (pennydog patchwork) as she dragged me kicking and screaming to our local QG and I'm so glad she did! I'd make something for my mum to start with as she loves pigs, so that pig print would become a Kindle case.
