Welcome, The Cloth Parcel!
Well, The Cloth Parcel is also a quilt shop brought to us by a mother-daughter team north of Salt Lake City. They purvey a well-edited collection of designer fabrics, original patterns and notions for today's modern quilter and crafter. Come meet my newest sponsor!
First, the patterns. Sometimes the perfect pattern is exactly what you're waiting for. At The Cloth Parcel you'll find quilt patterns and patterns for small projects that you can't find anywhere else. And most often you'll be able to buy the fabrics to match! Scrap-friendly Candy Shoppe, Bustling Beehive pillow and the Confetti Weave quilt each caught my eye. To enter our giveaway The Cloth Parcel wants to know which pattern you favor!
Next, notions. From saturated, high quality wool felt to ric rac, pom pom trim and even monkey socks, the ladies of The Cloth Parcel make it a point to stock notions they use and love. You know, I have yet to try pom pom trim... I always think it looks so sweet on stockings, pillows and such.
And then, fabric. Yes, I saved the best for last! If you prefer a smaller collection of goods all suited to your style rather than a vast, diverse collection, The Cloth Parcel may be your ideal fabric shop. There are offerings for home, boys and girls, with a pretty, yet modern aesthetic. And, I do like the way the fabrics are grouped by collection. You can see from the main shopping pages up to 4 fabrics offered in a given collection, with large individual fabric swatches displayed and clearly labeled when you click through to a collection page. Here's an example of Far Far Away fabrics:
It's a convenient and elegant way to speed browsing. Fabric is sold by the fat quarter, 1/2 yard or yardage. I hope you'll pop over and give them a look-sy!
As a way of saying, "Hello, and nice to meet you," The Cloth Parcel is gifting a double giveaway.
One U.S. winner will receive a 1/2 yard set of Tucker Prairie by One Canoe Two, plus Cloth Parcel's newest pattern, Confetti Weave. In addition, one international reader will win a copy of Confetti Weave quilt pattern. To enter, add a comment naming your favorite Cloth Parcel original pattern. Include in your comment whether you're U.S. or internationally-based and don't forget to provide an email address if your Google account doesn't share it.
