~Fashionable Fabrics Fabulous Freebie~

Try saying that 5 times fast!!
Hello my friends...good to see you again.
If you are a new reader here at The Empty Nest
you are just in time for a fabulous 
last week I ordered some beautiful
fabric from an online company called 
Fashionable Fabrics

As I was filling out the order form I noticed a comment box.
You know me...can't keep my mouth closed..had to comment.
I suggested that Fashionable Fabrics and The Empty Nest 
would be a great team and suggested a
 Giveaway.
What the heck...all they could say is
NO.
Guess what?
My new best friend
Dennis from Fashionable Fabrics, said
Yes!
Looks like I'm giving away lot's of pretty fabric to not one winner, but
 TWO!
Isn't that so generous of Dennis?
Fashionable Fabrics will be sending
two lucky winners
gift certificates for $30.00 each!

They are currently having a $4.95 flat-rate shipping special
 and the International shipping rates are Very reasonable.
You can read about them 

So start browsing their site for some new fabric.
You will find lovelies like..

Bird Paisley by Nest Collection
You know I'm a bird lover !

Farmdale Blossom by Alexander Henry
I love this vintage inspired small floral.

Kumari Garden by Free Spirit
Great colors!

Pear Tree Main by Andover
Yummy green!

I have found this beautiful Tanya Whelan print on another
fabric website for $10.50 yd.
Only $8.75 at Fashionable Fabrics
You will love their prices.

Maybe you would like a new sewing book?

Or a few wonderful new patterns

remember when I conquered my fear of zippers?
Maybe you want to whip up some pretty zipper pouches as gifts.

Or create a lovely fun apron


Fashionable Fabrics also offers trims, notions, remnants and organic fabrics.
I promise you will love the huge selection of 
 great fabric designers and beautiful prints for all your sewing creations.
Ok...here's how this will work.

Yup...all good things in life seem to have a few rules:
1. be a follower of The Empty Nest Blog (thank you)
2. visit the Fashionable Fabrics website and tell me what your favorites are 
3. follow Fashionable Fabrics on Facebook Twitter  or Pinterest (or all three)
4. leave lot's of comments!! (ok, I threw that one in there because I just like reading comments)

That's it!
The Fashionable Fabrics Giveaway
will run until 12 midnight on Feb. 8th (wed)
Good luck to everyone!!

Until next time...be kind and stay creative!
