Shelburne Falls - Giveaway Day!

  

The swirling skirts, foot tapping rhythms, and joyful movement of New England contra dancing inspire Shelburne Falls, Denyse Schmidt's latest fabric collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics.
  

At once nostalgic and thoroughly new, Shelburne Falls embodies the old-fashioned courtliness and small town charm of American Folk dance.

Fresh and vintage at the same time. 
The colors are so nice together and unexpected.
 We have precuts in the shop.


This is the first time I've seen FreeSpirit do 10 inch squares!
What do you think they call them??  
Stackers?
Layer Cakes?
Nope, they are called 
10" charm packs :)
Why muddy the water -- that's a great description.


 Here is a link to the free PDF pattern from Denyse
showcases the 10" Charms.


Our giveaway today is a Shelburne Falls 5" charm pack.
Update:  Congrats to Jocelyn!
You are the winner!!
To enter the drawing, leave a comment about Valentine's Day!

Random drawing later tonight or Friday :).

Also just arrived is 
Sheri McCulley's (aka Sheri Berry)
Cruiser Blvd from Riley Blake!

  16. I once went on an accidental Valentines day date. A friend asked me if I wanted to go out after class. I thought he meant go out to have a beer as friends. I showed up to class in a sweatshirt and boots bc there was a snowstorm and he showed up in a red button down shirt and khakis. Turns out it was a nice dinner, not a beer. It was awkward haha

  20. Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays (despite so many people calling it commercial). I love on my boys every day, but it's so fun to make little Valentines together and just be super sweet to each other.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 36 years and my hubby is still the one that I love! Great holiday!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry Valentine's Day is not for me! Our wedding anniversary is on the 25th February and that actually means something to me so we celebrate that and not Valentine's Day! 29 years this year.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love Valentines Day, way back when - my parents would have Valentines Day parties, my dad's birthday, and we would decorate, have lots of food and they would dance the night away.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love Valentine's Day and all it stands for
    I could do without the rampart commercialism but a day when we focus on our intimate relationships is important.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Roses are red,

  32. nothing better than celebrating Valentines day at school with a bunch of 5 year olds! happy day to you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Every year my colleague reads our grade 7 and 8 students a story about "warm fuzzies" and how giving away a kind act makes both people feel good! Then they make their own fuzzies - pompons with googley eyes. A great way to celebrate friends and reduce the "dating" stress among our too young 12-13 year olds.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  44. Valentine's Day always has been one of my favorite holidays -- I like the excuse to not just tell all of my loved ones that I love them, but to do fun little sweet things for them! (And chocolate and champaign -- staples of my Valentine's Day -- never hurt either!)

    ReplyDelete

  67. Last Valentine's day I watched my husband pull out of the driveway with a U-Haul headed to Valparaiso, IN. I was to follow in April, it was a very heartwrenching day. God had other plans for our lives and he is back, we have moved just 30 miles up the road :)... So today I get to hug, and kiss, and have dinner, and snuggle with my sweetheart! Happy Happy Valentine's Day!

  85. We don't celebrate Valentine's Day - my husband insists that he's nice to me every day of the year (he actually is, lol) so he doesn't care about the "special" days ;) I did get him to understand that my birthday, Mother's Day and Christmas are "do something OR ELSE!" days, so I let the rest slide, especially since he's always willing to drive me to the States for a Joanns run when I feel the urge, lol!

    ReplyDelete

  113. Beautiful fabrics!
    Valentine's Day is just a day, the sentiment of which we try to carry throughout the year, instead of trying to pack it all in one day. Mind you--we've been together for 36 Valentine's Days, so we've had some great, some not so great.

  114. What a great giveaway! My husband remembered today with a card and some chocolate. We'll be going out for dinner tomorrow night and then a small surprise. He says it will be something that we haven't done in 30 years- not sure whether to be happy or afraid. haha!! We've been married for almost 35 years and he still remembers the important days:). I definitely have a keeper!:)

  116. what a beautiful line!! valentine's day. at work today, a bunch of us were talking about how impractical it was for our husbands to be giving us roses, when in fact we really wanted X instead - oven fixed, an immersion blender, fabric (!). so i come home and my husband has bought me roses. and i love them. he didn't go all out, no - he bought short stemmed roses - in my favourite rose colour - yellow. and they are beautiful and they smell beautiful and they make me smile. Goes to show what we think we want and what makes us happy may not be the same thing.... Thanks for the chance to win!
