Can I Get A Whoop Whoop - For Fabrics N Quilts? Giveaway too!

Hi, all!

Well, it's Friday again, and time to get our whoop whoop on!  Today I have a very special whoop whoop for you.  I'm going to be whooping it up with and for my friend Shannon of Fabrics N Quilts, because she has a new and improved website!  And you're going to be whooping it up to, because she's throwing in some stuff for a GREAT giveaway!!!


Just in case you've never met her, Shannon is the one on the left.  This was taken at her booth at the quilt show in Paducah last weekend, which was filled with all sorts of yumminess - so much, in fact, that I got distracted and forgot to take any pictures of the booth!  But I did take a picture of my favorite loot from Paducah, all of which came from Shannon's shop...


Can you tell I'm a sucker for cute signs?


Well, one day recently I woke up, found that I needed Kona Snow and decided to drive two hours to Shannon's shop in Jamestown, TN (because I knew from her website that she had ten yards of Kona Snow on hand, and who knew what I'd find at any of the local quilt shops!)  I've been meaning to make this trip for several years now, but just hadn't had a day without toddlers before.


Her shop is jam-packed with all kinds of great fabric, notions, patterns, thread, and other stuff, but this was my favorite thing - isn't that a cute way to display thread?  Makes me wish I hadn't gotten rid of that antique ironing board I used to have...

But today, I'm whooping it up with Shannon because she has a fresh new look for her on-line shop!


And not only does she have a fresh new look, she's added some pretty cool features...

You can now shop by COLOR!!
(You can also shop by Designer, Collection, Style, and Brand.)

You can buy by the 1/4 yard - no more having to buy extra fabric you don't need!

Faster navigation to search by designer, brand, collection or style!

Gift certificates in any dollar amount, the purchaser can send a personal message to the recipient, AND it's available to be used immediately after purchase (this would be a good one to tell your hubby, for the next time he forgets an important event!)

and my personal favorite...

FREE U.S. Shipping - all day, every day, no minimum, no limit, no coupon - NO HASSLE!  Plus great international rates, including the first pound to Canada is free (which would include an order of up to 2 yards of fabric).

But wait - - - there's more!!

You can try your fabric choices out in a quilt block before you buy!  Here's an example of one I did...


All you have to do is load yardage in your cart, then go to the cart. At the top of the page, there's a button that says 
"Preview Fabric In Block".  Easy peasy, and so useful!
There are several different block designs to try out.

Pattern downloads and more Fabrics N Quilts patterns
 are coming soon!

There's a Gallery - a virtual "show and tell" of customer quilts and Shannon's own quilts!  What a great place for a little inspiration!

And if that's not enough, there's a tab at the top of the page labeled Coming Soon.  Now, I'm sure you've seen Coming Soon sections before - but Shannon's added a great incentive!  You can sign up for an email alert so she'll let you know when a particular fabric arrives.  When Shannon emails you, you'll also receive a 5% coupon code to use to purchase your new fabric!  No payment in advance, and no obligation to buy simply because you requested notification of the fabric's arrival.  You get first crack at the fabric you like and save money too!!

And did I say something about a GIVEAWAY????

Yes, I did!!

...How about a $35.00 gift certificate plus a goodie bag that will include an American Made Brand FQ bundle of 18 fat quarters and a few other things to be determined as she packs the order.  (A little birdie told me there might be a spool of Aurifil in and amongst all that loot!)

And what might you spend that $35 on?  Well, in addition to fabric, there are some great notions...


...or you might pick this cute baby quilt pattern...


(which is currently making its way to my house!)

The possibilities are endless!!

So how do you enter?  Take your choice of any or all of the following...

1.  Go check out Fabrics N Quilts' new site, and pick your favorite item for sale or new feature!

2.  Follow Fabrics N Quilts on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, or Google+.  If you look at the left side-bar on her website, below the precuts you'll see buttons to click to follow her on any or all of these social media outlets.    (Note:  On Facebook, be sure to pull down the "Liked" menu box and click "Get Notifications" and "Following" to receive all the posts that Shannon puts up!)  

3.  You get an entry if you are a follower of Shannon's blog.

4.  If you are a follower of my blog, that's good for another entry!

5.  And finally, if you took a selfie with Shannon at Paducah last weekend, that's good for a bonus entry!!  

6.  Now leave one comment telling which of the above you did, and please leave me your email address!  I'm seeing more and more no-reply bloggers - sometimes through no fault of your own, as Yahoo and Wordpress seem to be problematic on Blogger.  I'd hate to draw a no-reply blogger and be unable to reach you!  

I hope this makes things easier for you - lots of ways to enter, but you only have to leave one comment.  I'll total up all the different entries on my end!  The giveaway entries will close 
Thursday, May 7th at noon, and I'll announce the winner on 
next Friday's whoop-whoop post!

So - - - let's give Shannon a BIG whoop whoop!!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What are you whooping about this week?


What's got you dancing the happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you!

And remember, it doesn't have to be a finish - 
just something you're happy about this week!

The party closes at midnight Sunday -
Hope to see you there!!

Hugs!

Sarah

PS - There are also giveaways related to Shannon's new shop on these websites - no reason you shouldn't increase your odds of winning!  Check them out:  Pat over at Life in The Scrapatch, Maryellen of Mary Mack Made Mine, and Darlene from QuiltShopGal.
