Fresh Squeezed Fabrics Giveaway

Today marks the Grand Opening of the Fresh Squeezed Fabric shop on Etsy and to celebrate Randi is having an awesome fabric giveaway on her blog. Here is what she says about the exciting opening and giveaway. I hope you stop by and enjoy the wonderful offerings she has!

Today is the official grand-opening of my shop, Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics! Thank you so much for stopping by!

The idea of operating a fabric store has always been a dream for me, mostly because I absolutely love fabric and the thought of being surrounded by it seems so right. I didn't figure on it ever happening due to the money needed to start one. Hundreds of bolts of fabric, store rent, insurance, etc., etc., etc., cost too much for me to even consider it. I had never considered opening a shop online.

I did have a situation come up recently where I needed to research how to buy fabric wholesale and it turned out to be pretty simple. My mind started working overtime as I hatched a plan to start a store online. Then I happened to find that fabric can be sold on Etsy and things started to fall into place from there. My husband was surprisingly enthusiastic, so I decided to go for it.

Let me say that this decision has been laced with insecurity and indecision the whole way. For some reason, every time I receive a shipment of fabric I feel entirely overwhelmed for about 24 hours, but then that passes and all is well.

So far, so good for my little store, and today I want to celebrate! Plus I am in the mood to give something away. A drawing for some fabric is in order!

There are three ways to win:

1--One person will pick three 1/2 yards cuts of any fabric (totaling 1-1/2 yards). Anything you choose in my store will do.

2--One person will win this fat-quarter set. All I can say about this fabric is that it is beautiful! The colors and designs are amazing!

3--One person will win this fabric bundle. This fabric is so bright and cheery and just screams of a summer day!

If you would like to take part, simply leave a comment in this post to put your name into the drawing. If you link my grand-opening and my store on your blog, you may leave two extra comments (a total of 3 comments), which of course will up your chances of winning. I will close comments on this post on Thursday, June 26th at 6:00 PM and I will announce the winners on Friday, June 27th. Please be sure to leave an email address in your comment so that I can contact the winners!

***Due to the cost of shipping, US and Canadian addresses only please.

***I am leaving it up to individuals to decide whether to leave 1 or 3 comments since I know we are all trustworthy. ;)

Thank you so much for celebrating with me today and best of luck!
