flock on over for a giveaway!

I was telling you just the other day about Annie and her lovely shop, The Village Haberdashery, and as concrete proof of her generosity and loveliness Annie has asked if I'd like to host a giveaway of 2 FQ bundles of Thomas Knauer, Flock, and co-ordinating Kona solids. Each winner gets a lovely bundle of 12 FQs.


Of those of you who may not know Thomas (yet), Flock is his 2nd collection for Andover. He's a new designer with a background in Art Academia, and he's thoroughly engaging and passionate about what he does, if you haven't read his blog you really should give it a go. 



Thomas will be coming over to the UK this summer, and the London Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a talk at RayStitch in London on July 7th at 5.30pm. If you happen to be anywhere close to London on that day you wouldn't be disappointed listening to Thomas talk. He's a really engaging speaker, candid and honest about the fabric industry and how he got into designing.


The small print (please read!!!!!)....

The giveaway will run for just under a week, until Monday 15th May and both bundles will be sent to the winners direct from Annie, which means you get to see her lovely packaging too. 

Entries from readers in the UK or Europe only please

For a second chance to win, subscribe to the Village Haberdashery newsletter (click on over to the website, and in the bottom right hand corner of the page there's a box - enter your email in there and hit subscribe, then come back and leave a second entry telling me you've done so).




NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU!
