UPDATE: And the winners of the random thread drawing are … Kathleen King and Colleen Klein! Congrats to you both! Ladies, please e-mail me your mailing addresses and I’ll get your prizes shipped.
Happy Monday, everyone!
I’m gearing up for a summer quilting project (inspired by this one) with my daughters this week and loving the color spectrum offered by the sample pack I received containing two of Rowan’s new 100 percent premium cotton thread collections by Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett. The colors are lovely, which is no surprise coming from these accomplished designers.
Kaffe’s 9-spool “Circus” collection (left) is pictured above with Amy’s “Love” collection. Kaffe has another thread collection in earth tones called “Stones” and Amy’s second collection is a bright one called “Soul Blossoms.” While the colors have been selected for use with each designer’s fabric lines, the thread collections are sure to inspire all kinds of random sewing fun this summer. Each 9-spool box of thread retails for $35.99 and will be in stores carrying Rowan fabrics by the end of the month.
But you don’t have to wait for that. Let’s start the week off right and give you, dear readers, a chance to win a box of thread. Please post a comment below about your summer sewing plans and feel free to post links to the project tutorials you want to try. The deadline to enter is Thursday, June 24, 2010 and two winners will be selected at random. Good luck everyone!
