Yes! You read that right! Fluffy Sheep Quilting now has an online fabric shop and I am really thrilled to be one of the people to tell you about it. Those of you in Ireland will know that local shops selling gorgeous modern quilting fabric are few and far between, and can be very very pricey. So Cindy had the genius idea to set up her own and today is the big launch! Excited now? I thought so! See, now you can order the fabric and have it on your doorstep in a couple of days. I LOVE that. Of course, her sales are not limited to us Irish ladies, and Fluffy Sheep Quilting is set up to operate in euro, sterling or dollars, depending on where you are ordering from.
So, I am one of the lucky peeps who has had a little preview of her site, and I think you will find it fun and easy to navigate around, with lots to tempt you there. In addition to lots of crisp, yummy, scrummy modern fabric in stock, and more arriving all the time, Fluffy Sheep Quilting has a fantastic selection of Kona Solids. Cindy also is stocking Aurifil thread - at the moment her selection is the essential colours but the range is going to grow by leaps and bounds in the next few weeks.
So what are you waiting for? Get over there and have a look around. Don't forget to sign up for the newsletter, and to follow the shop on Twitter and Facebook so you can keep up to date with new fabric arriving and other updates. There is a great customer loyalty programme giving you points for every purchase to use against future purchases (you will need to register to accumulate points). Plus, Cindy is really open to suggestions and comments too - so if you're looking for something in particular, or if you want to suggest new Kona colours etc you can just let her know.
And, in case you needed another incentive, Cindy is offering a special launch week discount for all orders over €20. The coupon code is Launch10% This will give you10% off any order of 20 euro or more. The coupon is good from 14 May (Monday) to 21 May (Monday) on anything in the shop. You can use it as many times as you like! You don't have to login to use the coupon, but those not creating an account will be ineligible for the customer rewards program.
So, to celebrate the launch of her lovely shop, Cindy is sponsoring a rather brilliant little round of giveaways today and I am delighted to be hosting one of them. One of the things I talked to Cindy about when she was setting up the shop was how I love to put together my own FQ bundles. I'm looking forward to doing some browsing to put together one myself later today. But in the meantime, Cindy has a FQ bundle to give away to one lucky winner of this giveaway. The winner can choose one of the bundles listed in the store (some of which you can see in this post's pictures), or put together their own from 5 FQs of their own choice.
You have 3 chances to enter:
1. Visit Fluffy Sheep Quilting, have a little browse around and then come back and tell me what your favourite fabric is in a comment.
2. Sign up for the newsletter (you'll find the signup box on the bottom right hand corner of the shop page) and let me know in a separate comment
3. Like Fluffy Sheep Quilting's Facebook page or follow on Twitter and let me know in a third comment.
****GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*******
The giveaway will close on Friday 18th May at 5pm Irish time and I will draw the winner some time after that using the random number generator. The lucky person will be sent their FQ bundle directly by Cindy.
This giveaway is open internationally. Please, please leave your email address in your comment unless you are 100% sure you can get replies via email to your comments. If I cannot get in touch with the winner via email I will redraw.
Lastly, don't forget to go visit Cindy, Hadley and Susan's blogs where there are other great Fluffy Sheep Quilting giveaways running today! Thanks so much Cindy for having me be part of your great launch and good luck with your exciting new venture :-)
