Sponsored Giveaway from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop

Did I ever mention to you that my high school BFF owns a quilt shop? Cool, huh? Judy and I met in Grade 9 (*cough*30 years ago*cough*) and became fast friends immediately. We shared many, many school dances, sleepovers, notes passed during class (no texting - it was the olden days!), trips to her family's hunt camp, pop star crushes...the list goes on. Pretty nearly all of my great high school memories involve Judy. Imagine my delight when I heard she was opening up a quilt shop!
Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is owned by sisters Judy and Karen (her long-suffering older sister who had to put up with a LOT of giggling and nonsense during sleepovers). They carry top quality quilt fabric as well as patterns, notions and books. The bricks and mortar shop is located in Toronto (3961 Chesswood Drive if you're local - check out the classes!) and their online shop is where I hang out.

Sew Sisters carries a great selection of Kona Cotton Solids, including all the new colours. They have recently introduced a Kona Club. Members can sign up to receive either 4 FQs or 4 half-yards of Kona Cotton Solids each month.

Here are the first three months' selections:

June
June

July
July

August
August

I am delighted to tell you that Sew Sisters are sponsoring a generous giveaway here at Felicity Quilts!

One lucky person will win one of the monthly Kona Half-Yard bundles shown above PLUS a new Kona Colour Card!
