Fun Friday Giveaway: Sponsored by Hoffman California Fabrics

Hoffman California Fabrics has beautiful fabrics and they also enjoy sharing insights on how their fabrics are manufactured.  They will be hosting a tour that can be scheduled through the upcoming IQF Long Beach Quilt Show, on Monday, July 30th that you can sign up for through the show's website.

SewCalGal certainly enjoyed such a Hoffman tour, a few months ago.  Of course, I wanted to walk out with a bolt from every one of their collections, but I was happy to sneak a few "sushi" fabric bundles into my bag.    If you are not familiar with Hoffman Sushi bundles, I do want to clarify that these unique fabric bundles are not available for purchase anywhere that I'm aware of.  They just happen to be some sample fabrics that Hoffman gave away, while I was on tour.  And, I like to think of these beautiful fabric bundles as Hoffman "Sushi" bundles. 

For those that were lucky enough to visit Quilt Market, I'm sure you fell in love with their new line of fabrics.  As for the rest of us, we're starting to see them in our local quilt stores and on-line shops.  Hoffman has also updated their website, so you can also check out all of their new batiks and screenprints online.  Their new releases include:
  • 5G Bali Pops & Batik Squares!
BPA5 Assorted
J2432 6-Brown
J2393 75-Peppermint



Did I mention a Giveaway? 

The Fun Friday Giveaway prize this week is a yummy Sushi Fabric bundle of Hoffman batiks, perfect for anyone that love batiks and wants to have a variety of fabrics for their projects.




Want to enter to win this yummy Sushi Fabric Bundle?  Here are the two simple ways you can enter (you can claim both ways by leaving two comments, as appropriate):

1) Be a follower of SewCalGal that follows via Google Friend Connect (GFC)/Google Reader and leave a comment on this post.
2) For Facebook users, "like" Hoffman California Fabrics and leave a comment under their post about new fabrics introduced at Spring Quilt Market.  Come back here and leave another comment to let me know you want to claim this entry.

And, for those on Facebook, I think you'll soon find another giveaway that you can enter to win more Hoffman fabrics by way of their Facebook page very soon.  Plus, they share photos and insights that inspire quilting, sewing & embroidery enthusiasts.  So, if you don't yet like Hoffman California Fabrics on Facebook yet, I hope you'll click on over and like them soon.  Definitely a fun page on Facebook!

And, be sure I have a way to contact you.  I do periodically update my list of "WANTED: Quilters that do not win in giveaways" to share insights on those that can't be contacted and how they can change their settings.  If you have never won a giveaway I highly recommend you periodically check this list and make sure you check your settings.

I also want to thank all of the "Postage Angels" that help to sponsor giveaways by helping with postage costs.  Postage expenses for the giveaway this week is sponsored by Cynthia (Cat Song Stitchery).
