Memorial Day Craftastic Monday Link Party


Welcome to a Memorial Day Craftastic Monday Link Party!  I hope everyone in the US has enjoyed the nice long weekend and taken a moment to remember those who have served our country.  I'm very grateful for this extra time - with decent weather it's finally been time to sort out the effects of some massive yard construction.  As much as I've been itching to sew that's had to come first....I cannot wait for a break from everything else to get into my craft room!

Last week kicked off an amazing fabric giveaway you won't want to miss - a chance to win this gorgeous Dashwood Studio fat quarter bundle + a $38 gift certificate to Plush Addict (THE place to shop for all things fabric & sewing).  It's open worldwide and a comment at the giveaway is all it takes to enter.  Click HERE to get your entry in:

Plush Addict Fabric Bundle + Gift Certificate Giveaway


Does your fabric stash need a fresh infusion this Spring?  Got some new project ideas you want to bring to life, but need the right fabric?  Looking for a new way to find exactly what fabrics & notions you need? Then read on because I've got a Fantastic Fabric Giveaway from a cool place that can make those fabric dreams come true!

Plush Addict is amazing online fabric source.  This family run, international shop, is helmed by Kellie (herself a fabric & sewing addict), and offers exactly what fabric lovers want and need.  For one, they have a remarkable selection of all sorts of fabrics: designer quilting cotton, fun print knits, plushes, home decor, waterproof & absorbents and all sorts of fashion fabrics.  Your ideal fabrics are all easy to find by multiple categories like fabric type, brand or theme. 


And get this - you can usually choose your cut size.  That's right - you can order just a fat quarter of cotton, or an 18in x 18in square of cuddle, or go for a full metre (just over a yard for folks in the US).  You can pick from several cut options.  How awesome is that?!?

Fun & fabulous cottons, poplins and cuddle prints available

Plus, they have a massive selection of notions - cutters, zippers and stuffing to name a few, as well as sewing baskets, craft room storage.  Everything for a sewing addict:

Lace Zips, Hedgehogs Sewing Basket, Waste Bin Kit, Audrey Hepburn Cross Stitch

Loads of great books & patterns too.  I've got my eye on a couple already.  And their prices already include VAT, so if you're outside the EU (like I am), that'll be deducted at checkout, so the prices end up lower.  Score!


Their customer service style is awesome too - they ship things out the same day you order them and will ship anywhere.  They've even got a Color Match Service to make sure you're pairing the right shades together AND they also have a Plush Points Loyalty Program where you can earn points worth cash discounts through purchases & referrals (plus freebie bonus points on your birthday).

They are exactly what I want in a fabric shop!  As many of you know, I've been really good with using my pre-existing stash for quite a while now, so it may be time to treat myself to a few new things.  I feel like I can't go wrong if I buy it at Plush Addict.  Now, how about some special goodies for YOU?  


Plush Addict is giving away this fabulous fat quarter bundle of Dashwood Studio's Rain or Shine collection:


But wait - there's more!  They're also giving the winner a 
Plush Addict gift certificate worth £25 (US$38) to shop with too!

TO ENTER: Go visit Plush Addict, then leave a comment here saying what you'd spend the gift voucher on if you won (be sure to include your email address 
if it is not on your profile).


Official Rules: Open Worldwide. Giveaway open to 18yrs & up.Giveaway ends 12am EST, June 2, 2015.  Prize is Dashwood Studios Rain or Shine fat quarter bundle and £25 gift certificate from Plush Addict, with an approximate total ARV of £48 (US$74.00).  (1) Winner will be chosen at random and announced the following week at the Craftastic Monday Link Party on Sew Can Do. Winner will be contacted by email after the giveaway ends and the winner is required to reply to the winning email within 48 hours or a new winner will be chosen.
