Christmas in July: Alewives Fabric Giveaway!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for our first giveaway for Christmas in July 2012?

Alewives Fabrics has done it again. Rhea and her team always come up with gorgeous giveaway bundles. This is the second year in a row that they've offered a custom holiday fat quarter bundle to our readers during Christmas in July!


tn 
Ardeth's Christmas Fat Quarter Bundle


This is from Rhea, I love the description she wrote:

Alewives Fabrics is pleased to be giving away to one lucky Stumbles & Stitches reader one of our brand new "Ardeth's Christmas" fat quarter bundles. Named after my step-grandmother who had THE most spectacular collection of vintage 50's and 60's Christmas ornaments I have ever seen, this bundle of 10 different fat quarters (all in quilting weight cotton) features sweet prints of deer, snowmen, holiday text and more. The colors are delightfully kitschy, yet modern at the same time! Happy tones of red, green, turquoise, ivory and just a touch of brown. Ardeth (also a fabulous quilter) would definitely have approved!

This lovely bundle has a retail value of $29.95. Thank you so much to Rhea and Alewives Fabrics for this awesome holiday giveaway!

(And if you can't wait for the giveaway draw to own one of these fat quarter bundles yourself, Rhea made up extra bundles just for you! They're listed in the Alewives shop right here. They're also expecting Aneela Hooey's adorable Christmas collection any day now!)
