NSM: Fabric Gift Card Giveaway from Smugglers Daughter

I've been buying fabric from Susan at Smugglers Daughter since 2014. My first experience was with a piece she generously gave me and I made this dress...


I met her in person at Sew Expo in 2016.  It was great to spend some time with her.  My next garment was this skirt...


I've bought fabric from Smugglers Daughter that I used to make scarves for Christmas gifts. I've bought denim and this amazing cut out pleather that's back on my to sew list this fall. Susan has such interesting fabrics and I always find something I just have to have on her site.

To continue our celebration of National Sewing Month, Smugglers Daughter is offering the next gift card. Susan is generously offering a $100 gift card to one lucky winner.

2. You must tell me in the comments about one fabric you saw on Susan's site that you would use your gift card on.

3. All comments must be signed - if you use "Unknown" to comment you have to leave your name or email address.

4. Please leave the comment by Friday, September 28th by 11:59pm EST

All of these rules MUST be followed to be eligible to win the gift card. A winner will be announced on Saturday, September 29th.  You will have until Saturday, October 6th to send me an email.  If I don't hear from you by then, I will pick another winner.  Also, please refer to the additional rules that were stated in the initial post for National Sewing Month.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love her fabrics...I would purchase shades of grey or maybe one of the lovely rayon fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Holy smokes- what a generous giveaway! Picking just one is rough, but I think the April Showers linen squeaks out just ahead of the medium weight knit, Shades of Gray. So hard to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a great selection! The Tiny Bubbles twill suiting would make an awesome light jacket or kimono! Carrie

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love your skirt... Love to find out about a new to me fabric store. If I was the lucky girl I'd get some lovely linen, french blue and sky blue or the lapis lazuli, I really like the always wear plaid linen too. Tough choice

  35. I want that celebration silk for a tunic. There are actually a lot of fabrics that I would like to have.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've not ordered from smugglers daughters yet although I'm aware of them. I've been recently looking at rayons or rayon challis for a MOTG dress I'll be making. Fun to look and smugglers daughters does a fab job writing about the feel and drape of the fabric. So important.

    I did like the barbie leg swimsuit fabric.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    I'm not sure why your commenting is automatically choosing my newist google profile ( business) for who I am, here's my email that I do look at: k8hobbies at yahoo.

  37. Splash of Color is calling my name - I have the perfect pattern for it, and it reminds me of a dress I bought in Italy years ago, that I need to replace because it no longer fits... I love sewing with stretch-woven fabrics, and I'm so happy you showed us the Smuggler's Daughters site.

    ReplyDelete
  38. So many pretty fabrics, but I think I like "Far Out Knit Fabric" best.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Too hard to decide! I'm between Eco-Awning Stripes for a skirt or Salt N Peppa for a jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It would probably be the Teal Square Bishop. Such a gorgeous fabric for a raincoat or jacket!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love that first dress on you! Susan has a gorgeous selection of wools. I would love to sew a jacket with the Blue Blood plaid suiting or blondes, brunettes, & redheads boucle.

    ReplyDelete
  42. So many lovelies - but Shades of Gray is what caught my eye. I'm usually more of a color person but that is stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really like the Far Out Kit Fabric (180112). I have made a Cashmerette Concord Tee A-line dress out of a similar style fabric and always get compliments on it, even when people have seen it a million times. Plus it's the most comfy dress to wear! Lovely to be able to find new sources to feed a fabric obsession!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I hadn't looked at that online store before, such nice stuff. I would choose Deep Blue Sea Silk.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I fell in love with Smuggler's Daughter fabrics when I saw them at the Puyallup expo in 2016. I bought a beautiful fleece plaid for a poncho. This morning the fabric that really caught my eye was the JNY Crazy Quilt jacquard that is calling my name and would look wonderful as a jacket. I'm thinking something drape-y like the Just A Pinch from Cutting Lines Designs. Thanks for the inspiration this morning!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love the linen and the subtle stripes linen would be a great bloise

    ReplyDelete
