Welcome back to our celebration of Sewing Month 2016!
We hope you've been having fun with our weekly inspiration and giveaways. There are so many video gems in our FQS vault (also known as our YouTube Channel) that we're sharing some more inspirational how-to's based on a theme. This week? Applique! We've also got a fantastic giveaway, and two people will each win a prize package valued at over $80, which includes the thread-y goodness show below - yum!
We know, we know - some quilters consider applique the "A word". Here at Fat Quarter Shop we think applique gets a bad rap, so we've gathered some FQS videos that will help you develop new applique skills or further develop those you may already have. Take a peek!
See, that wasn't so bad! Applique - by machine or by hand - can be painless and fun, and results in gorgeous quilts and other stitch-y projects!
This week we're giving away two Awesome Applique Prize Packs! Each lucky winner will receive a Fat Quarter Shop Tin Set, ten spools of Aurifil 80 wt Applique Thread, a package of 16 Straw Needles, Poke-A-Dots Sticky Thimbles, and one Charm Pack of Bella Solids containing assorted colors. Each Prize Pack (shown in the tray above) is valued at over $80!
To enter: Leave a comment on this blog post sharing whether you currently use applique in your quilting and sewing, or if you have yet to take on this sewing technique. Giveaway ends on 9/26/16 at 8 AM CST. The two winners will be chosen at random and announced in an update on this post by 9/28/16, and will be emailed about their prizes. Good luck and Happy Quilting!
