Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Alewives Fabrics. In Rhea's words:
"Alewives Fabrics is an independently owned fabric store located in Midcoast Maine and run by the mother/daughter team of Barbara Neeson and Rhea Butler. We carry a great selection of carefully curated fabrics: everything from quilting cottons to vinyl laminate and a whole lot in between. Our shop and webstore draw sewing enthusiasts from all over the world.
SouleMama: How long have you been in business?
Rhea: Alewives Fabrics has been open since 1978. Over the years, the business has changed hands a couple of times, and our family bought the shop in 2004. We've evolved from a business that was geared towards garment sewing in the 70's and 80's to a full fledged quilt shop in the 90's and early 2000's. Today we are what we like to call a "creative home sewing" shop with fabrics and supplies for making quilts, clothing, bags and home furnishings. Fabrics have changed lots over the years (for the better, in my opinion): today's designs are gorgeous with unbelievable quality and of course the internet has really rejuvenated sewing by connecting and inspiring a new generation of sewists. All in all, it's an exciting time to be in the fabric business!
For today's giveaway, Alewives Fabrics is generously offering the following gift to ONE winner:
~ A "Coming Together" quilt kit!The kit includes the book Simply Modern Christmas by Cindy Hammon, plus fabrics for the top and binding of the quilt, which finishes at approximately 60" square. The quilt gets its name from the flying geese pattern featured in the quilt, which reminds us that during the holidays, we all "come together" from different corners to enjoy the season. Our version of the kit includes a cheater print: it will look as though the center motifs are hand-appliqued, but really the gorgeous fabric is doing all of the work.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
To enter today's giveaway, please leave a comment (one entry per person, please) in today's post. I'll close comments by 9 am EST on Monday, and announce the winner, chosen via Random Number Generator, shortly after. Comments closed! The winner is...
Quilt + Christmas = happiness! Thanks for the giveaway!!
