{Sew-vivor Giveaway #1} $50 to Fashionable Fabrics

***This giveaway is closed. Thank you!***

I'm so excited for the very first (of 8) Sew-vivor Giveaway! Before we get to the amazing shop and prize, let me explain. Sew-vivor is a sewing contest. Every Wednesday from now through April is something Sew-vivor related on this blog. Entries for the contest are being accepted until the end of February. In the meantime, I have some of our prize sponsors lined up to do a giveaway as well (open to anyone- you do not need to enter Sew-vivor to enter this giveaway)! Today we say hello to the amazing shop...


Getting Sew-vivor all set up has involved writing quite a few emails to each of our sponsors. It's allowed me to get a feel for the owners behind the company. After getting to know Dennis and his wife (the owners of Fashionable Fabrics), I think so highly of them. They are quick to respond, professional, and passionate about their customers. (It was this company who really pushed to make Sew-vivor open to international contestants)!! Plus, they are big "Survivor" fans!


Here are some of my favorite things about this company:
*Impeccable Customer Service
*You've got to visit their website-- it's one of the most organized sites I've ever been to. Check out this section: Fabric by Print
*Their flat shipping rate is pretty brilliant... you can order 200 yards of fabric and have it shipped for a flat rate of $4.95.
*We must talk about the selection of FABRIC! They sell things like vintage, organic, Japanese, and some of the best designer fabric.

Here are some of my favorite fabrics:


Now for the moment you've been waiting for...
