Feather Your Nest: Prizes!!

Good morning friends! Have you signed up for Feather Your Nest yet? Perhaps reading about the awesome prizes up for grabs in the contest will motivate you to jump in and make a little something for your house. ;)

Our blog sponsors Fat Quarter Shop and Drygoods Design Online were super generous. Plus, our friends at Lark Crafts, Sew Mama Sew! and Imagine Gnats donated some wonderful prizes. And to add to that, Angel and I are throwing in items from our shops Demeter Rising Designs and Jenny Bartoy ~ Handmade Designs. Are you excited yet?!

Here are the details:

** Prize 1 **

The winner of the Feather Your Nest contest, judged by 10 talented ladies from the craft and sewing community (to be announced very soon!), will receive the following gifts (total value $350).

$150 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop
Imagine all the fabric, fat quarter bundles, patterns and notions you could get with that! Heaven!!


A surprise half-yard bundle in aqua and grey fabrics from Drygoods Design Online
Fabrics will be similar to those pictured here but hand-picked by owner Keli as a surprise. The winner can opt to receive a $75 gift certificate to Drygoods Design Online instead, to be spent on gorgeous modern fabrics.

(And for the rest of us, Keli has offered an exclusive 15% discount to Stumbles & Stitches readers during the month of April with the code FEATHER15. Yay!!)
