Welcome Seamstar & a Giveaway!

I'm delighted to introduce you to another new sponsor here on FairyFace Designs, the wonderful UK based fabric & craft store, Seamstar.


Seamstar has been supplying modern craft products to creative people since 2008. What started as a few bolts has grown into a dedicated workshop full of fabrics along with a dedicated & enthusiastic workforce too. They've not only been busy extending their lovely people but also extending their fabric ranges too.

Along with their fabulous selection of prints, they have monthly limited edition fabric bundles along with 50 shades of plain cottons (extra wide so perfect for lap quilts). They have just started a new blog which will have a free new project on every 10 days (including patchwork and quilt patterns). Their habdash stocks useful things like Hobbs Batting and 505 spray and bag making supplies (or anything else customers would find useful if they let them know!).

They have an amazing selection of the most gorgeous ribbons, trimmings and felt. They also have a very competitive postage tariff starting at £1.99 and orders to Ireland at a flat rate of £3.99.  In addition to selling all that gorgeousness, they are (most importantly) lovely people and as a customer myself I have only good things to say about their service and prompt delivery :-)

Courtney at Seamstar is generously offering a £20 gift voucher/credit which can be used for anything in their shop to one lucky winner of this giveaway. There are 3 chances to win.

1. Pop over to Seamstar, have a little look and then leave a comment below letting me know what you would use the prize for.
2. Like Seamstar on Facebook and leave a comment letting me know that you did
3. Follow me on Facebook or Instagram and leave a comment letting me know that you did 

The giveaway is open until Monday evening 12th August when I will draw a winner randomly. Please leave your email address in your comment. If I cannot contact the winner, I will redraw. I will announce the winner by editing this blog post with the winner details. Only comments on this blog post will be counted as entries.
