Deeeaaar Santa...

** Hey all! Santa's swinging by today (12/18), we've closed the comments so he can fill up his bag and be on his merry way. Thanks! **

Christmas is fast approaching, and in the spirit of the holiday, we get to play a little Elf for Santa Claus!

While it probably isn't appropriate to sit on Santa's lap at your local mall and tell him what you'd like for Christmas anymore, you can still give him a hint at the Jolly Jabber...

We little helpers are going to help him make some Christmas wishes come true!

Here's what you do...

1. Go to our website and pick something that you want. Something you reaaaally really want. Quilt kit? Fat Quarter Bundle? Layer Cake? The only restrictions are -- it has to be something that is in stock now (no future fabrics), it cannot be a gift certificate, and it has to be something we can send to you all at once (for instance, not a club).

2. On your blog, write a short post with your letter to Santa and tell him what you would like from Fat Quarter Shop. (If you don't have a blog, you can add this info as a comment to this post.) Please include a link to the item (he checks his list twice, you know), and you may use our image for your post too! You can word your letter however you want...Santa likes to laugh ("ho ho ho!") and he sincerely appreciates creative minds!

3. Then come back to this post and add a comment with a link to your Dear Santa post. Please make sure that your profile is public so Santa can access it!

Once you post your comment, we'll make sure they zing their way up to the North Pole. Santa has promised (pinky-sworn, actually) to grant a few of these wishes. And you know he can :)

Dear Santa, It has been so long since I have written to you but I'm sure you remember me. Remember when I was 10 years old and you left a puppy under my tree? That was an amazing gift! I have been a very good girl this year and I have a request. Could I please have a fat quarter bundle of "Blush by basicgrey" for Christmas? If your elves are too busy to make it for me, it is available at the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm sure a smart, handsome, generous man like you does some shopping online? The link to buy my gift is

Thank you Santa! I believe, I believe, I believe! Drive carefully and enjoy the ride. You rock!!!

Your friend forever,

Beth said...

I'm in! My letter is here:

Carol said...

Hello, this is so awesome. I posted a letter to Santa on my blog, here's a link:

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all of you at The Fat Quarter Shop, my very favorite place to shop.


SheilaC said...

What a great idea for a give away!! I have written a letter to Santa on my blog, with all the details on my wish for Christmas!

Thank you for passing the information along to him!!

Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa,
This is the MOST FUN I've had with a contest. I've not made out a wish list in many years. Even though its not likely that I'll get my wishes, its still fun to dream. I wanted the Whirly Gig quilt kit but it appears to have sold out already. Then I wanted the Verna quilt kit but it doesn't ship for a few months. Finally I settled on the Swell Nicey Jane fat quarter bundle. It should make a lovely quilt (or several of them).

Rose.W. said...

What a fun and creative idea.

Here's my letter

Jen said...

How fun. Here's my letter wishing and hoping for the Blush FQ bundle!!!

Cara said...

here's my letter for you speedy elves to take to Santa. Thanks!

Joyce said...

I have a request for you Santa:

Amy said...

Sadly I don't have a public blog, just one for family for updates on the kiddos.
But...I didn't want to miss out on this opportunity, so here goes:
Dear Santa,
It seems I never remember to write to you each year. I'm so busy helping my girls get their requests for Barbies, princesses and dress-up clothes to you that my wish list gets pushed to the back burner. But trust me I'd definitely be on your nice list...or at least I can't remember being tagged for anything on your naughty list (but I'd be the first to admit that with 2 young girls my memory is certainly not what it once was).
But this year I would love, love LOVE as much fabric as possible from the Jenean Morrison California Dreamin' line. I have been searching for pink and orange fabrics (her favorites) in order to make a sleeping bag for my daughter. ...I know, I know it always comes back to my girls. But I really wouldn't have it any other way. They mean everything to me.
So, please Santa...I'd love to see some beautiful fabric under my tree this year....please make my wish and my girls' wishes (hopefully you also got their letters we sent out last week) come true.
Love, Amy

How fun!
I left a little wish on my blog too.

Jill said...

Dear Santa,
I have been amazingly good this year. There is only one thing that I really, really, really want for Christmas. If you grant this one and only wish you never have to visit my house ever again. I promise to be good for the next ten years. If I got the "Attitude Girls Fat Quarter Bundle
Mary Engelbreit for Moda Fabrics" this year, I can save you time next year. I can make really cool stuff for all my friends and save your elves all kinds of time.

Thank you Santa,

P.S. The cookies are really good this year!

Meg said...

Thanks for the opportunity to enter such a cool giveaway!

Michelle said...

Can you please make sure Santa gets my letter? I would appreciate it. Thank you & MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

SandiH said...

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year. I have worked hard not to spend a lot of money on fabric and have used a lot of my stash. I didn't kill my sons even when they really deserved it. I didn't make my husband feel guilty for working long hours and leaving me to deal with our sons (and not sew!). I have helped my mother care for her parents at the assisted living facility, and answered Grandma's questions about "what day/month/year is it?" forty two times in a row.

Please make my Christmas special and fulfill my wish for the Luv Bug Quilt Kit. It is so pretty, and I would love to be able to make it!

Many, many, thanks!

Dear Santa,

Me and the kitties have been pretty good all year, and they would really enjoy an Olivia's Holiday Fat Quarter bundle.

Tell Rudolph "hello" for us!

Vicky said...

Dear Santa: I want one of everything! :)

This is a great idea!!

jillquilts said...

How fun!! I hope he brings me a Civil War Homefront FQ bundle!!

Anonymous said...

Dear Santa- I've been a good girl all year. I would much rather have a layer cake of mill house inn rather than the spatula my husband is getting me for Xmas. I promise I won't be violent towards my mother-in-law at Christmas (even though I have to spend a four hour car ride with her). Thank you so much Santa, I promise I will leave some yummy cookies and I'll even bake them intead of just opening a box. Poohbearnjit at yahoo dot com

Woo Hoo, This is great. My post is here:

Thanks for the chance. I'll use this to make Valentines gifts.

Katie Favara said...

What a cute idea for a contest! This forced me to create a blog posting to my poor, neglected blog.

My letter to Santa is at Favara Happenings.

Thanks for the chance!!

Emily said...


There's my letter...hoping for a fat roll in either More Pink & Chocolate or Folklore!

Thanks for running a great website. I'm serious about the offer at the end of my letter to y'all. :)

Gee, Santa, I sure would like to get a Winterscapes fat quarter bundle for Christmas. It's not that I don't already have too much fabric, but I really, really need this! Please, please, please!
Your biggest fan,
Leslie S. in MN

Camille said...

Done! Just spread some Christmas cheer (and HINTS for the man of the house) over at my blog too.

This was FUN! You guys (well, girls) are are awesome!

Who doesn't love Christmas, and who doesn't love gifts of quilt fabric - ahhh, thanks for combining two favorites. Visit to read my charmin' letter to Santa. Kate

bruinbr said...

Very fun! My letter to Saint Nick is here:

Happy holidays!

Nikki said...

Dear Santa,
I hope you can remember me from last year? I'm the girl who hadn't sewn for 20 years and you gave me a shiny new sewing machine! I was hoping that this year you could give me this for Christmas:

I've loved Jenean Morrison's California Dreamin' range since I first saw it on her blog.

P.S. I have been a very good girl this year and, so far, I haven't managed to kill my tropical fish!

zarina said...

Thank you to Jill and Camille for the head up.

Here is my post to Santa:

Linda B said...

My letter to Santa is posted on my blog. What fun this was to write to him again. It's been a long time!!

The Last Yard said...

Ok I posted my wish list to santa at

thanks so much

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

This is so fun! Hope he reads mine!

Thanks for the great idea!

Julia said...

Wow! This was so much fun!! Here's my link!

Hope Santa receives it! If he doesn't then I hope my hubby does!

Sara F said...

Dearest Santa!
Here I go again!
Instead of telling that I have been a very good girl this year (promise!) I will come to the point right away. I'm sure you know about the Fat Quarter Shop? Well, and you also know that I love to quilt and am always out of fabric because I am just a pour student and haven't been in the business for very long and haven't had the opportunity to build a stash. My greatest wish for this Christmas would therefore be some of each of the flannels in Anna Maria Horners Folksy Flannel collection. If that is to hard to send (which I wouldn't imagine since all things are probably possible for you), I would be very grateful for a Peach Meadowsweet fat quarter bundle by Sandy Henderson. To make things easier for you I have added links to my two greatest wishes, but any of them would be amazing:

Folksy Flannel:


Thank you for you time and for reading my letter, I appreciate that=)!

Love Sara

Karen said...

Thanks for organising an interesting giveaway. I wrote my letter to Santa over here

Katie said...

Dear Santa

It’s not often I get to sit down and write a list of what I want rather than things I need. With two little girls, my wishes usually get pushed way down the priority list. If I could have just one thing that I want I would love to have one of the Moda Charm Pack Sampler Boxes here: .

Thank you Santa and safe journey. We ‘heart’ you xx

Kathie said...

Yes I wrote to Santa and I sure hope he hears my plea!

LZ said...

Dear Santa,
I am currently in love with reproduction fabrics and my wish is for the Coming Home quilt kit that is exclusive to the Fat Quarter Shop. My second dream gift would be the fat quarter bundle of the Civil War homefront fabrics by Barbara Brackman.
I will have some cookies out for you when you visit.

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh! Please hurry and get my letter to Santa! You can find it on my blog!

Caroline in NH said...

Thank you "sew" much for all that you do. This will be fun.

I created a post on my blog for all to see and participate. The link:

Coffee_Queen said...

Dear Santa:
It's been quite a while since I have written you. You see, I've been quite busy working, and quilting, and working, and working, and, get the point. Anywho, I do have two fun things on my Christmas list that I hope you will bring me this year. The first is the 'Blush' Fat Quarter Bundle by Basic Grey. The second is the 'Dear Prudence' pattern from Abbey Lane.
Santa, I really hope that you can bring me these 'toys' this year. I've been, well....mostly a good girl! :-)

Thanks Santa!

Jessica Christensen said...

Thank you, Santa, for giving us a chance to have MORE fabric at our houses!

mouse said...

Dear Santa,

I have been good throughout the year
And now that Christmas time is near
There are some treats I hope to see
Wrapped up beneath my Christmas tree :)

As snowflakes fall throughout the night
A Sushi Roll would bring delight!
A ruler, too, would grant my wish,
Or sewing patterns for a fish.

Oh, Santa, please do think of me
When you leave presents for my tree
I'll bake you cookies, sing your praise,
But please give your faithful elves a raise ;)

Thanks for such a fun idea! :)

For Santa's reference:

Prairie Basic Sushi Roll:

Triangle Square Up Ruler:

Stanley Stuffed Toy Pattern:

Sarah said...

Dear Santa,

Go to the Fat Quarter shop and you will see
A Christmas wish to put under my tree
Sweet Girly Girl Quilt Kit is what I desire
To warm me and my sweetheart by the fire
Love, Sarah D

This was so much fun. Thank you.

Renette said...

What a fun idea to have friends in high places with a direct line to Santa.Well Santa,just like you I keep many a list,I too chech them more than twice and hate it when they seem to get longer and longer!I hope you don't mind me adding some more items to your already long list,but I know you have some elves to help out.One of these lovely goodies over at the FQS would make my Christmas really really nice:The Coming Home quilt kit, the Wiscasset Jelly Roll or the Old primrose Jelly Roll.Thanks santa I've been good as you know!

Dear Santa,
I would like to say that I have been very good this year but it wouldn't be totally true. You see there is this place in cyber space called "Fat Quarter Shop" and they make me be very, very bad to my credit card! But if you could find it in your heart to grant me one Christmas wish I would be very grateful. My family just doesn't like to buy me fabric but they sure do like to get that fabric all cut up and put back together in quilts so I need help from you dear Santa to bring me some of that very loverly Figgy Pudding Moda fabric in the form of a jelly roll. I really do love fat quarters but Kimberly seems to be out of them in this line so I would be perfectly happy with some jelly. I'm not sure if this is how to link you to this particular little piece of goodness but it's the best I could do.

Alicia said...

I left my list and some extra items for friends and family. (Or the husband if he looks).

Also, I love the Fig Tree club! I cannot wait until the next package!

Dianne said...

Here's my entry! Cool way to conduct a contest!

Ellen said...

Dear Santa:

I had so much fun seeing you at Macy's on Sunday, but didn't get the chance to talk to you. Attached is a link to something I would really, really love to get. My daughter and I have a civil war pattern that we want to start in January.

Thank you for reading this note and chocolate chip cookies and milk will be waiting for you.

Dear Santa,
It has been years since I have written. As I have aged my faith in you has been shook and I fear I no longer hear the bell. I still have the bell and I know that if you grant my wish, I will hear it tinking again this Christmas.

NewFarmChick said...

Dear Santa -

I've been "mostly" good this year but wanted to explain a couple of incidents that you might be a little unclear on....first was that unfortunate car thing...I never would have sideswiped his truck while I was backing out of the garage if he hadn't of been standing in front of my SUV directing traffic like he was landing a 747. I really think he overreacted. It's just a scuff and I couldn't watch him AND watch behind me at the same time. Not my fault at all! Then, there was the deal with those "extra" golf clubs....I had no idea that he REALLY needed 20 more clubs than what he was already carrying in his golf bag. They've been standing in the corner of the garage for the better part of 4 years so I thought......well, you know. Ok, now that I've got that cleared up, here's what I'd like for Christmas...I'd like the Blush Fat Quarter Bundle - Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics.

Merry Christmas Santa!!

Love - NewFarmChick

Love 2 Quilt said...

I'm dreaming of a fat quarter Christmas, just like the ones I used to have. Where the threads do glisten and I can listen to hear the sewing machine hum.

I'm dreaming of a jelly roll Christmas with every fabric that I cut. May my days be full of sewing & fun and may all my Christmases include some (fabric).

find my letter at

p.s. I would like a Figgy Pudding jelly roll for Christmas.

Thearica said...

I had so much fun writing my letter! I hope Santa reads it soon!

Dear Santa.... please don't forget me this year!!

Super fun idea...y'all are so clever.

Heather said...

Okay, that was seriously really fun to do! Here is my "list" :D

Kalleigh Hathaway said...

I already had a letter to Santa which included fabric so I just added some particulars and links! I think the "A Breath of Avignon" fat quarter bundle would probably be at the top of that wish list, though!

Happy travels, big guy!

Dean Santa

Since I am not a popular quilter and don't have my own blog for you to ready, the lovely ladies and gents over at have allowed me to post my letter here. So in addition to the fabulous iron and Big Board that are already on my list I would love the 3 Sisters Glace Frosted Windowpanes Quilt Kit that is available over at This kit would be the PERFECT thing for me to break in my new iron and Big Board.

OH and Santa, one last thing, if you could please help my parents understand my obsession that would be great too!

Happy travels and thanks!

P.S. My new year's resolution will be to finally get a blog, I guess you don't bring those ready made, right?

P.S.2 I make great cookies, do you prefer milk or dark chocolate chips?

Hugs and kisses!

Pam said...

Dear Santa.. I've been a good girl this year.....I've quilted over 200 quilts... squeezing in ones for special people like the Lizzie B's...
so.. I would LOVE to have Santa leave me one of the Lizzie B FQ packs.. I just LOVE their fabrics... I already bought some of their fabrics already.... but would love to add more to it... and fine the time to stitch it together.

Carolyn Williams said...

Dear Santa,

...with a HO HO HO and a HE HE HE...I'm going to be a Grand Mommy.

Nothing for me, Santa...but I would love some Valentine's fabrics...can't decide, so you surprise me just like you always have.

My little Melissa will be born on Valentine's Day....she's my first Grand I would love to make a special quilt for her arrival.

Thank you Santa.

PS I'll leave you some imported beer and cookies this year.

Sinta Renee said...

Thank you Fat Quarter Shop! Here is the link to my list for Santa!

KrazOrange said...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been quite good. On my spare time I learned to quilt. And although I know I shouldn't have spent so much money on new hobby, you know how I can't help it. In my defense I want to remind you how all quilts I've made were not for me but for friends and family.

For that reason, this year I want to ask you for this fat quarter, that I saw in one of my favorite stores:

This time I will make something for myself, or for my living room.

Pleaaaase Santa, don't forget about me this year.

Bree's place. said...

Dearest Santa,

I have a blog, but know how to post a link, I don't think so! I have too big a list, but your a big guy so hopefully you can see how much I need it all!
I want a sparkling cider quilt pattern, 1 green grass love u fat quarter bundle, 2 blue sky love u fat quarter bundles, 2 yards love u blue sky who's who, 3 yards love u blue sky snails and turtles, 4 yards love u blue sky layered letters..and an eloise and elmore toy pattern too. there is so much more santa I could ask for, but I think I'll stop's really only 1 gift, even though it looks like alot, it's a quilt for my son's room and some matching curtains, and a stuffie, maybe a pillow if there is left overs...his sister is getting the most beautiful somerset cottage quilt, and curtains, and everything all matchy matchy...his little brown bear brown bear quilt has been dragged all around every super market and washed so much its really threadbare(it even got run over, to everyone's dismay when he screamed murder), and up here, in our -32 plus windchill winter he really needs a full size blankie now. I know he won't make your nice list, he even knows it I think , (and this does not bother his sister at all) but his mommy is sad for her mean little man and wants to wrap him up all snuggly and watch movies on the sofa,if he'll sit still. (he might if he had a new blanket) that's what I want Santa, to make my boy a blanket...its his birthday too next week, he'll be 2 on the 2nd...(and his sister 4 on thursday this week! mommy is busy in December) its a big order...but if you know me, you'll know I'll be visiting my favorite store ordering tons so I can be all matchy matchy!
and please give the girls over at fat quarter shop a nice present too, I've had the funnest time browsing through all the fabrics making my list!
Thanks big guy,
Bree, in freezing cold Canada.

Anonymous said...

Dear Santa,
I'm giving you the same wish list that I gave to my husband...hope my chances are better with you than they are with him. I have a feeling that there won't be any fabric under my I want you to know that if I could have some fabrics from you...the list below is what I wish for.

Love the Inkwell Reds here:

And the Wiscasset Charm packs.. could make some neat things with these:

And I have fallen in love with Simple Abundance:

Thank you Santa

Nancy said...

Dear Santa,

I'd like to ask for fabric,
It's what I like the best!
Others can have the shoes, purses and clothes,
I'm a fabricholic, now I've confessed!

I don't need Kate Spade, Manolo's, or Gucci,
Or Winston's big diamond rings.
I don't even want a Ferrari or Lamborghini,
Or any of those high-dollar things.

I'd be happy with a stop at Fat Quarter Shop
To pick me up a bundle called Eden!
For it's fabric I'm craving, it's fabric I'm wanting, it's more fabric that I'm needing!

Thank you Santa, Kimberly and FQS!

Lisa said...

Dear Santa,

I really must say that I just ordered from the Fat Quarter Shop and got excellent service. You should do something extra nice for them this year.

What I really want for myself is this beautiful set of fatquarters found here.

However, in reality if you were to fill my wish list I would prefer that you send this set of fat quarters

then I could be your little helper elf and sew them up pretty for our church's ministry which provides quilts and bags of goodies to kids when they are put in the foster care system. Don't you think any little girl would love any quilt made from these beautiful fatquarters?

If you are falling on hard times like lots of people are, feel free to send the jelly rolls instead. I would be just as happy with some of those.

Thank you. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a nice long highly deserved vacation in a tropical location when you are done with all of your deliveries.

Dear Santa,

i am a total quilting beginner but sewing and quilting brought so much joy into my life this year.
And i`ve been quit good this year, too!
My christmas wish is the Pretty Pink Love U Fat Quarter Bundle. I would make a nice quilt for my daughter with that one (she was really disappointed that there weren´t much pink scraps in the Love You Charm Pack...).

Please don´t forget to come to Germany and visit my house!

Barbara said...

Dear Santa!
If you will check your list, I am sure I am there on the "Nice" list! I would love to have something from the Fat Quarter Shop - maybe a nice Batik fat quarter like the Red, Black & White Revival bundle or the Earth Tonga bundle. I make a wonderful Pumpkin Roll and I will be sure to leave a piece for you under the tree along with a glass of eggnog! Thanks Santa!
Love, Barb

Tracey said...

My list is up!

(along with some pictures of my adorable son)

Merry Christmas!

Melanie said...

What a sweet idea full of Christmas spirit.
Dear Santa,
you know i love all things colourful and fun so please could you put "Dancing Horses Bright Fat Quarter Bundle
Laurel Burch for Clothworks Fabrics"

into my stocking for Christmas. I've been pretty good this year and haven't lost my temper many times... or sworn apart from that time when a toy crocodile leapt out of the washing machine at me when I opened the door this week.

You know my chimney santa, mince pies will be waiting.

Darlene said...

Santa- This sure was fun.

Stitched With Prayer said...

My Dearest Santa, I know that your busy,
But I'm really getting so darn stinkin dizzy,
Going through all the wonderful things,
The Fat Quarter Shop said they will let you bring.
Maybe a quilt kit I really adore,
Or some beautiful patterns to read and explore.
I guess that I have to decide on just one.
For a 'Fabric Fondler' thats not easily done!
But I guess if really must pick just one thing,
It will be a quilt kit that I see in my dreams.
Thank you dear Santa for listening so.
Now off to the Fat Quarter Shop you must go.
Sincerely, this letter is from Nancy Jo.
I would love to have this kit...

Beth said...

Dear Santa,
I've been a pretty good girl this year and things have been a bit tough with my health not doing too well and losing my parents but quilting helped me to stay cheerful and to be creative.
If I could have anything on the fatquarters site I think I would like the boy scout quilt kit to make for my husband , he was a boy scoutmaster for 7 years and he put his heart and soul into it. It can be found at
Thank you Santa, I hope all the girls and boys are grateful too.
Love Beth Street

Dear Santa, I don´t know, if you can understand me very good, because I´m from Germany and my English is not so good. I learned it long time ago and I fear, I have forgotten a lot. But nevertheless I want to write a letter to you. I´m sure, you can understand my bad English, because you have to read all the letters, written in different languages.
I have a great wish. This fat quarter bundle looks like a dream for me:

Maybe one time my dream will become true? I really hope it. I know, its a long way to Germany, but you are allways very fast and busy, so I´m sure, you will also visit the children and people in Germany. We all looking forward to your visit.

Take care of yourself and also of Rudolph.

Best wishes from Germany

Oh what fun! Im singing away ... "Making a list and checking it twice". I wrote Santa my letter with my wish list and hopes he will have time to read it...
Thank you SO much!

Mary said...

Dear Santa,
I know I don't have a blog, but I just happened to come across this post. I have been such a good teacher this year, I just know I deserve some goodies. On my wish list is the Lecien Yellow Floral collection. I do hope to find it under my tree.


Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Thanks to the Fat Quarter Shop for helping to make one of my Christmas dreams come true!!

luvtoquilt said...

Dear Santa: I can't honestly say there is anything I need. God has blessed me mightily. However, I sure would like to see a Petit Mason fat quarter bundle under my tree!

Joanna said...

Dear Santa:

I love you. I hope you feel the same about me. As I write this I am eating a piece of home made fudge. That's what you'll be getting when you visit my house this year. And if you're thirsty, help yourself to some merlot.
Please patronize the Fat Quarter Shop and get for me some things, such as the Teatime Florals Two Champagne Teacup panels and coordinating fabric, or the Sampler Moda Bake Shop Box. I also like the Garnet Aubrielle Fat Quarter Bundle. Dear Santa, while you're in my neighborhood, will you remember to leave something at the school across the street? I know the teachers and kids would appreciate it. Have a good rest on Christmas day.

chiamll said...

Dear Santa,

I discovered blogs and moda and jellyrolls and layer cakes earlier this year and has since then made multiple visits to the Fat Quarter Shop and renewed my interests (i.e. more like obsessions !) with quilts and quilting, lol. I have been getting a LOT of fabric this year but have discovered that most tend towards what my son called girly fabric and colours. So dear Santa, I would dearly love, love, love the Odyssea fat quarters bundle, just so that my son don't feel left out !

Merry Xmas to one and all,
Lee Leng

PS I really need to learn and start a blog. Try me at

Hilary Mercer said...

Santa Dear,

Thank you so much for my new camera last year. It has worked so well for me. This year I think it would be amazing if I got anything in the Nicey Jane line.
I just love the way that fabric feels. Maybe its because I want it so bad but I think it is unusually soft and yummy. It would make a great addition to a project I have in mind for the spring.

But if you happen to not have that you only have "meany jane" I think a few yards of,
Would make a super cute rain coat!!


You da bomb!

Sincerely your good friend,


Amy said...

Dear Santa - please come visit my blog.

scottylover said...

Dear Santa,
Since I don't have a blog, I will leave my Christmas request here. I would LOVE for you to leave me the Camping under the Stars quilt kit seen here:

I love star quilts and 30's repros, so this is PERFECT for me. I have been busy making hand dipped chocolates, so this year I will be leaving some out for you instead of those cookies you get everywhere else. Thank you so much,
Sandy A in St. Louis

Robyn *Ü* said...

I have now posted my Dear Santa letter. Enjoy.

Donna said...

Dear Santa,

I know it has been years since you've heard from me, however, I never knew I could ask for fabric. Had I only know I would have kept a running list for years. I have been a good quilter this year. I have made 11 quilts to give as gifts this year. I gave 6 of them early as they were made with Christmas fabric and I wanted them to be enjoyed this year. Hopefully, this will loft me to the top of your wish list and I can receive the following item(s).

Also known by the common name"Shirtings 1875-1900 Fat Quarter Bundle
Terry Clothier Thompson for Moda Fabrics " Hope you have a great trip this year.

Looking to see you soon.

Jodie said...

Thanks for the chance and who knows maybe some more elves will see my letter and decide to drop me some little special gifts.

Lisa Holmes said...

Dear Santa,
You know that I have been very good this year, as I have been for the last 38 years. This year I have asked dear hubby for a new sewing machine, sadly I think that you dear Santa may need to step in and get me the machine, dear hubby has a problem, whatever I say goes in one ear and out the other. I think I may have a brand new washing machine under my tree this year from dear hubby. That is no fun, that is why Santa I am including a link to a fabulous fat quarter bundle from Deb Strain. I have been coveting this since I first saw it. Santa, remember I have been good, and my hubby is getting me a washing machine for Christmas, I need something fun and exciting for Christmas !!! Remember I have been a very good girl all year !!!

Happy Holidays to all !!!

Karen said...

Dear Santa,

I want it all! I have been a good girl...really I have!!! I haven't written in so long because I started to believe all those big people who told me you're not real (mark them off your list, please)! Boy, were they wrong! I know you are busy preparing for Christmas Eve...but if you could just fly by and drop off a Mill House Inn jelly roll at my house...I will be the happiest quilting girl on the planet!! Thanks for listening! Love, Karen PS: I believe, I believe, I believe!!!!!!

Polly said...

Dear Santa,
I've tried to be a VERY good girl this year, by trying not to buy too much new fabric, and trying to use up my big stash. But, this is so much fun- window shopping at the Fat Quarter shop!
Come see my list at my blog-

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year,and I love aprons,so naturally the apron kit here just leaves me speechless!

Thank you, I promise I will bake your reindeer some cookies.

Cassandra said...

Dear Santa,

I have been a very good girl and hand made all my Christmas presents for my family this year!But in doing so I am out of fabric to make myself something nice!
If you have space in your big bag of presents may I please have a Cool Nicey Jane fat quarter pack from the fat quarter shop. Or if that is too much to carry to Australia just a pattern or two of Heather Baileys. I have linked these very pretty things bellow.

Thankyou for spreading the cheer every year.
xxoo Cassie
P.S. I have made you some shortbread stars too!

Infinity Quilter said...

What a cute idea! I've posted my letter to Santa on my blog (

Happy Holidays!

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

freshlemons said...

Dear Santa,

I've been a very good girl - taken care of the kiddos, the dog and even the hubby! I've used some of my stash for holiday gifts, but I always need more fabric! I can't imagine anything better than some Kiwi or Peach Meadowsweet FQ bundles.

The certainly would be put to good use in the new year!

Pretty please! :-P
Faith Jones (

P.S. My 3 year old would like a castle and a princess. Fingers crossed for her.

Chrysalis said...

Dear Santa.
You know how I have been such a good girl this year. I am nice to everyone and have helped when ever I can. I really love fabric but my husband has put a ban on fabric purchases so I really need some secret fabric presents from you, my favorite Christmas friend. If you could help me out and get me a fat quarter Bundle of Oz by Sanae or fat quarter bundle of Kiwi Meadowsweet by Sandi Henderson, or if it is not asking too much both for Christmas that would be great. Thanks for all the great stuff over the years and I will of course be leaving you some fab cookies on Christmas eve.

Thanks- Chrysalis

Jeanette said...

spidr said...

Dear Santa;

You're looking terrific; have you lost weight? I think you have. You can't possibly be old enough to have a driver's license for that sleigh, let alone be out all night on Christmas Eve. My goodness, you are quite a catch! I sure hope Mrs. Claus knows how good she has it. Any gift from you would be a special treat but if there is room in your sack of goodies,would you please bring me a fat quarter bundle of Chloe's Christmas? The colours are so cheerful and I have just the pattern to use them in! Thanks so much for all you for us all year, Santa! You always make me smile!


Megan said...

Thanks, as always, for your generosity! Here's a link to my Dear Santa letter:

Leona said...

Dear Santa,

The kids are all sleeping, even the dog.

I've been a good mom this year, I even got them a frog!

Sometimes I had to choose between fabric or groceries...but good sense did prevail..I fattened up my kiddies, so I can share with you this tale...

I sit by my sewing machine for many long hours each night...with the hopes to finish the UFO's before Christmas... so they can take flight!

I turned my bedroom into a sewing room. I sleep in the hall. I dream of beautiful fabrics and towers of threads that don't fall.

I have been a good girl this year Santa. And I have just one wish...A present from the Fat Quarter here is the link:

They take Visa and Mastercard and deliver in a flash! So help me dear Santa add to my stash!

I hope you are smiling Santa, and remember me too...I will be a good girl next year...and will even sew for you soon!


Chantie said...

Santa baby, slip a bundle under the tree, for me, been an awful good girl, Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight, da da. Santa baby, make it Basic Grey’s bundle, too, Blush oooh, I’ll wait up for you dear, Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight! Think of all the fun I’ll have, think of all the thread waiting to be used. Next year I’ll sew even more, if you’ll just grant my Christmas wish! Santa cutie, please fill my stocking with fat quarters, and soon, I can’t wait to begin creating, so hurry down the chimney tonight! Come and trim my sewing bag, with some fabric won from the Fat Quarter Shop, I really do believe in you, Let’s see if you believe in me, doo doo bee doo! Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a wing, and a prayer, too, for you! Santa baby, be safe this Christmas, and thanks a lot for thinking of me!

Dear Santa,
I don't even believe in you and I haven't been particularly naughty or nice, but I'll give you a chance anyway since I do believe in the fat quarter shop!!! If I had a list for you, it would be Civil War Tribute, or Ginger Blossom, or Boutique. Isn't that a variety Santa? Sorry Santa, I don't have a blog. Betty
