Fun Friday Giveaway - Sponsored by Hoffman California Fabrics

Thank you to Hoffman California Fabrics for being our sponsor today, for another Fun Friday Giveaway.

First, a few things to share:

Kelly (I Have A Notion) has a couple of posts on her blog about recent tours of Hoffman California Fabrics. And, she has a giveaway for some yummy Hoffman fabric too.  Just hop on over to Kelly's fun blog for more information about this giveaway and tell her "SewCalGal" sent you.

The fabric has been selected for the 2013 Hoffman Challenge which is from their new Sayomi collection.  Hoffman has selected The Humane Society as the designated charity for the 2013 Challenge.  And, the deadline to enter this spectacular challenge is July 29th, 2013.

As I've been hearing many quilting and sewing enthusiasts ask where they can find the 2012 Hoffman Challenge fabric, I want to mention that you should start seeing it appear in your local quilt shops this month. But, definitely let your quilt shops know you are interested as they can order it if they haven't yet done so.  I've also spotted this fabric online at the Fat Quarter Shop!


Have you seen the new Taylor Swift video "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together?"  You are probably wondering why SewCalGal is talking about Taylor Swift, but Taylor loves Hoffman Fabrics so much she wore pajamas made with a whimsical squirrel print, from the beautiful Woodlands Collection in this fun video!  Do you think Taylor is a quilting or sewing enthusiast or just someone that has an eye for beautiful fabric?



A little birdie has shared insights with SewCalGal about their new Hoffman fabric collections.  Have you seen them yet?  They are beautiful and you are going to love them.  Bet you'd like to see these new fabrics right now.    They'll be arriving in your local quilt shops and online shops very soon.  And, SewCalGal will share insights with you shortly.


Did I mention a giveaway?

Our giveaway today is for a bundle of Hoffman fabric, which SewCalGal calls a "Sushi Roll". This isn't a fabric bundle you can find in your quilt shops, but a special one that is made up of various Hoffman Fabric samples.  And, a great way to add beautiful fabric to your stash that can help you make a small project, or be incorporated with other fabrics to make a larger project.  Or, you may just want to enjoy the beauty of it and display it on your quilt wall while you decide what you want to create with it.   



This bundle also include a piece of Hoffman 3D fabrics and a pair of 3D glasses too!  


If you would like to win this bundle of fabric, followers of SewCalGal simply leave a comment on this post.     I'll randomly select a winner next Friday.  

Want an extra entry? Go "like" Hoffman Fabrics on Facebook. And, let them know SewCalGal sent you.  Keep an eye out this week as a little birdie told me that Hoffman is going to have a special fabric giveaway on their Facebook page this week, possibly as early as this Sunday.

Don't forget to keep an eye out, as there will be a few more giveaways for various Hoffman fabric bundles.   I have a few more Sushi bundles of beautiful Hoffman fabric for you.

I also want to thank Michelle (Quilty Stuff), who is our Postage Angel for the giveaway this week (and for the August Prize in the 2012 Free-Motion Quilting Challenge too!).  SewCalGal appreciates Postage Angels for helping to support shipping expenses of prizes on SewCalGal and she hopes you also appreciate them too.  As such, you may want to hop on over and visit Michelle's delightful blog - Quilty Stuff and leave her a note of thanks too!


The giveaway last week  was sponsored by Don Linn (aka Mr. Quilt) for two copies of his new Free-Motion Quilting Simplified DVD.  Congratulations to the two lucky winners.



  1. Rhonda (Ozark Country Stitchin)
  2. Diane Wild (Bearly Wild Bears)




This FMQ DVD can be purchased, for a very reasonable price, via Don's online store.
