Sponsored giveaway from Simplifi Fabric

Today I would like to introduce you to a brand new sponsor and new-to-me online shop, Simplifi Fabric.  Simplifi Fabric specializes in all things organic - from fabric, batting, and thread, as well as supplies like snaps and pliers to make your own eco-friendly cloth diapers. I will let Kim and Tasha introduce their shop and share what they do!

We would like to introduce you to our new world of modern and organic textiles and supplies here at Simplifi Fabric. We are a mother and daughter duo (Kim and Tasha) from Canada, who are very passionate about all things Modern and Eco - we have decided to focus our attention on organic and sustainable textiles and supplies. The journey from concept to the shop has been a wonderful learning experience for us both and we are very excited to share it all with you - we are new as of January 2012! We are hoping that our flair for design and fashion sense will show with each new product that is introduced at Simplifi Fabric. Every month new product is being introduced. We are fortunate enough to be able to ship from both Canada and the USA to keep shipping costs and transit times to a minimum!

At Simplifi Fabric we carry a very large selection of natural bamboo, organic cotton and hemp textiles - from hemp muslin to hemp/bamboo fleece and everything in between.
We also have a wonderful selection of 100% organic cottons by fabulous designers such as Birch Fabrics, Monaluna, Daisy Janie and Cloud9 Fabrics.
We have expanded our supplies selection to include 100% organic cotton sewing thread, hemp wool, FOE and KAM snaps and pliers.

We cater to a wide variety of sewists and DIY crafters including cloth diaper making enthusiasts as we have a great selection of solid and print PUL (polyurethane laminate) and gorgeous fabrics for inserts and lining diapers such as bamboo organic cotton fleece, hemp organic cotton fleece and bamboo organic cotton velour.
Diaper Cut  (18X20) of 1 mil PUL polyurethane white/black floral print rare print hard to find - low price
We currently operate online, however we do offer the option of local pick up (for those close by - Iroquois, Ontario/Ogdensburg, NY). We will have a brick and mortar shop set up later this year.

We would love to offer you Diary of a Quilter readers a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate to our store and would also like to offer a 10% off coupon code (QUILTER10OFF) which can be used in our ETSY and HYENACART shops until May 31, 2012.

Please be sure to leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry!


Please make sure your email is enabled in your profile or else leave your email in your comment, so Amy has a way to contact you! Winner will be picked via Random.org.
Giveaway will run from Monday, May5 to Friday, May 11 at midnight MST.
GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Thank you Kim and Tasha!  I would also highly recommend that you like Simplifi Fabrics on Facebook as another way to keep up on their latest sales, and future arrivals, like the the Simpatico fabric collection at the top, arriving in June.


WINNER:


Thank you for the giveaway! They are favorited, and my favorite thing they carry is the Monsterz Mash pink by cloud 9 (followed closely by the tree in shroom from the Circa 52 collection). I got a few cloud 9 fabrics last month and they feel so delicious!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And thank you, readers, so much for your support of these sponsor profiles and giveaways. Having worked in a fabric shop, I know that it's a lot of work and not a huge financial windfall - they're typically run by people who have a passion for fabric and sewing and not because they're in it to get rich.  I'm so happy to support them by spreading the word about who they are and what they carry - each one has it's own personality and specialties.  In return, I am so grateful for the support they give to this blog and making it possible for me to justify the many hours spent sharing here. :)
