A very berry giveaway

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Just to add a bit more joy to the festive season, I have teamed up with Ali from Very Berry Handmade to giveaway a gift voucher and a lovely book, “Make Me I’m Yours… Simply Sewing”.

Rules and other important details can be found at the Very Berry Handmade blog, along with a short “celebrity” interview… don’t get too excited, it is only me answering questions.

It will be great if you enter this giveaway, more so because I won’t be stressing about picking a winner, I will be just handing out the prize :)

Best of Luck!!

About presents

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I am absolutely mad about buying presents, specially for my loved ones. I am not really into buying lots of presents, I rather give one or a couple of good ones, carefully chosen, than give lots of presents just for the sake of it. Another thing that I like about present is choosing the wrapping, ribbons, tags, etc. I have even designed and printed my own when I can’t find what I want.  I have always thought of the wrapping as part of the present.

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday and after buying his gift I went to all of the shops that sold wrapping paper but couldn’t find one that made me 100% happy. So I thought of putting my stamp on it and wrapping with fabric. After all this is what I am, a fabric lady :) So here it is how it looked:

Prince Charming loved it, both the present and the wrapping. I am sure you agree with me that it is such a great feeling to see people that you love with a big smile on their face. But the very best part of the whole thing was that after he went off to play with his new gadget, I still got a bit of fabric to use for my hexis!

And seeing as we are in a celebration mood, I have teamed up with Fiona from The Sewing Directory for a Giveaway.  For the chance to win a £15 voucher from The Fabric Loft just let us know which fabric or fabric designer you would use to wrap a present, or you would love to receive as a present from the ones that we have in stock (of course feel free to add these to your Fabric Loft wish list and send it to your loved ones!).  Send your answer to or by filling out this easy form.

You must be quick, the winner will be drawn at 6pm Monday so you have only got this weekend to let us know which one is your favourite!

We’ve got a winner!

As any other blogger, I love when people leave comments or when they write to me about something they have read on my blog,  and I want to say Thank You to all of you who have taken the time to do it.  You must agree with me and the comments for this last giveaway were just fantastic.  Isn’t it great that we all are loved?

But before we get too mushy, lets announce the Simple Sewn Gifts winner:

Janet Morgan who wrote

I think the best present I received, though not actually a gift was inspiration from my dad who made clothes for me. He died when I was young, but I do believe this is where my love of sewing and other crafts came from him. My daughters increased this passion especially when they were young and we crafted together. Hopefully when my grandchildren get a bit older, I can continue this love with them.

After quite a few sunny and warm days, the UK is once again under a massive cloud.  It is raining and grey so we thought it was about time to have a giveaway at The Fabric Loft to cheer us up!  We are planning to make it a monthly thing, so everybody can try their luck.

The process is going to be very simple and we will let you know every month what you need to do to enter.  For June all you have to do is leave a comment sometime between now and next Wednesday 16th June in yesterday’s post.  The lucky winner will be announced here and will get a £10 voucher to use in our shop. 

Good Luck!
