a giveaway and a blog hop recap



Today's giveaway is from my sponsor, Warp & Weft. Esmari, the owner, has a gorgeous selection of fabric and notions in her shop . I had a lot of fun browsing her fabric section this morning and I put together the above collage of a few of my favorites (including fabric from Cotton + Steel which Warp & Weft has available for presale.)

In addition to stocking many beautiful fabric lines, Warp & Weft also stocks notions from Merchant & Mills (you should click here to see them - look at that awesome packaging) and ribbon from Sajou (click here to see it - gorgeous, right?) And I'd love to get these scissors

Warp & Weft is currently having a fantastic sale. Use code summer25 to take 25% off all regularly-priced fabric and notions. Plus, click here to see her large selection of already on sale items. 



Before we get to the giveaway, I wanted to let you know that that you can view the entire list of new bloggers from the first two weeks with direct links to their blog hop posts by clicking here. The last two weeks of the blog hop aren't until July so you have plenty of time to catch up with those that have already posted. Not only are reading these posts great for getting to know these new bloggers but almost everyone also posted a blogging tip and a quilting tip. I know I definitely learned some new things!





For this giveaway,  Warp & Weft is giving away a $30 gift card to their shop to one lucky reader. 

1. To enter, just leave a comment on this post - any comment will do but if you want a topic, how about this - do you usually sew more or less in the summer months? (one entry/comment)

Bonus entries:
2. Plum and June followers - old and new - get a second entry. Just leave a comment saying how you follow. (one entry/comment)

3. For another entry, take a look around Warp & Weft and leave a comment with your favorite fabric from their shop - maybe what you would considering buying if you won the gift card. Also, while you are there, I definitely recommend signing up for their newsletter so you can hear about upcoming sales and specials. (one entry/comment)

You can enter up to 3 times. Please make sure that your email address is in your comment if you are a no-reply commenter. The giveaway will stay open until Sunday, June 29th at 8pm ET and a winner will be chosen at random and contacted by email.


This giveaway is now closed. The winner is #4 Niki.

  1. I sew more in the summer while watching the kids play outside! Through the windows, I mean. :)

  2. I might sew a little more in the summer. With the extra light, I sew later into the night without realizing what time it is.

  4. I sew a lot more in the summer because I go to college during the school year. I don't bring my sewing machine with me to school because I will always choose sewing over studying. So I wait until the summer to do most of my sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I tend to sew more in the summer. I love the longer days and just feel more active in general. It's much harder for me to get to bed at a reasonable time in the summer! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really like the Sylvia bundle at Warp & Weft.

    ReplyDelete

  19. I don't think this posted before - I think I sew about the same, maybe a little less during the summer. Sometimes it's just too hot! Plus, it's harder for me to do beach days in the winter, I need to take advantage of the beautiful weather!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would have thought more but it is seeming like less. I think I just like being outside more so I forget!

    ReplyDelete

  33. I usually sew less in the summer due to their being better weather to get outside! thanks for the giveaway chance! mburnette912@bellsouth.net

    ReplyDelete
  34. I sew more when I have deadlines. I also sew more when there is more light, so I'd have to say summer. In the winter all I want to do is hide out under the covers!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I follow your with a bookmark.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the LITTLEST BUNDLE! Very cute fabrics in it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Like everyone else, I would get Cotton + Steel.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I usually sew about the same in the summer as winter. I bet you think it's funny why but I'll tell you anyway! I don't like to sew when it's dark outside. I guess I really just can't see as well. So even though even in the summer I'm outside more it also stays light longer! see!!! I told you I'm weird!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They have Shimmer! I would get some of that. For. Sure.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. I can't decide what I would choose!! I think it would be between Mustang, Botanics, Littlest and Safari Moon! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think I sew more during the summer. TV is rubbish so I tend to play with fabric instead!!!

  43. Old follower :) Hope you are having a fab day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I probably sew more in the summer months, since my school-aged son is home and can keep an eye on the littlest one for a few minutes. I'd love to win, thank you!

  74. Definitely less. I am always torn between wanting to work in our garden or be inside and sew.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  80. Botanics FQ Bundle is my favorite in the shop. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I probably sew a little more in the summer. I'm a stay at home mom with a teacher husband, so during the summer I have a little more help with the kiddos, and therefore more "me" time :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I definitely sew less in the summer... Maybe it's all that awful heat?

    ReplyDelete
  83. I used to sew more during the summer, then I graduated. Now I have less time to sew during the week and more time on the weekend. That is because I am working and have a 1.5hr commute. I find fitting in sewing during the week very difficult, so my sewing is restricted to the weekends. I still get projects finished, just at a much slower pace.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I only got my machine in the winter so I don't yet know...lol!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I follow your blog on bloglovin

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm new, but so far I would have to say I'm sewing more in the summer! I'm getting a little better at it so I feel more confident to try new projects. I am in love with quilting! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Warp and Weft has a beautiful selection of fabric... It is tricky to pick only one fabric line!!! Since I need to make two more baby quilts, I would probably choose "Littlest", it is so sweet!!!

    ReplyDelete
