Massive Giveaway and website launch!



It's Giveaway Time everybody!!

Look at this big pile of booty that you could win!!

But first of all I want to share some exciting news with you. For a while now I have been hinting at changes afoot in our Edinburgh shop. Earlier this year we started stocking fabric, wool and haberdashery to compliment the craft classes we embarked on last year. It's all been selling really well and now we have added most of it to our website! Now everyone can get a little taste of Avery Homestore, no matter where you are!
I have been selecting the fabric and wool that I like to use, and rather than stocking whole ranges I have picked out designs that I think are special and that I would want in my own stash. We also have some great fabric packs that we cut here in the shop.
There will be lots more to come as we are adding items all the time, but this seemed like a good time to get started promoting it.
So I am having a giveaway to launch this new Craft Supplies department on our website!
I have 2 prizes, a WOOL prize and a FABRIC prize. The wool prize has 8 balls of gorgeous Rooster Almerino DK wool. The fabric prize has 15 scrummy fat quarters selected from our stock.
And as well as these each prize also gets this pile of Sass & Belle ribbons and buttons below!
AND we are offering 15% off any orders for craft supplies placed on our website by the end of May! Just use this discount code when you checkout - LAUNCH (case not important). Hopefully this will tempt someone to give us our first craft order!

So how do you enter?
Well it's pretty standard really, just leave a comment saying whether you would like wool or fabric. But I would love you to pop on over to the website and let me know what you think too! So if you would like to put something else in your comment, like which fabric you liked best or what you thought of the look of it, that would be very much appreciated.
That comment gives you one entry to the giveaway, but here's how you can get even more entries:

 1. Sign up for our email newsletter on the website, come back and leave a comment telling me you've done this and you will get another entry.

2. If you are a follower, leave another comment to let me know and you will get another entry.

3. Blog, Facebook or Tweet about this giveaway, come back and tell me in another comment (with a link please) and get yet another entry!

So that's a maximum of 4 raffle tickets!
This giveaway will end in a weeks time at midnight on Thursday 31st May Wednesday 30th May - sorry everyone, only just realised I won't have time to post the results if I leave it till Thursday as I am off to FQ London Retreat first thing Friday!
It is open to everyone, wherever you are!
Good Luck everyone!!

  21. I'd like the wool. The soft colors are very appealing.

    I liked the "Hexies" fabric pack on the shop site. It is a geat idea. Unless one has an Accuquilt (I don't), cutting out is time-consuming.

    Would you please cross-reference the shop fabric selections as to theme?? i.e, Animals; Birds; Stripes, etc. I'm not familiar with all of those designers and usually want to pick my fabrics by themes.

  51. Edinburgh needed a really good fabric shop :-) Am officially so homesick there are tears in my eyes...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Fabric, please!

    The pictures of the shop on your site are great - very bright and cheery. Also, love the Millefiore fabric. Having a "new" products button is great for people like me who are not up on all the new lines all the time!

  56. Lots of lovely fabric on the website, but I would like a view all option for the designer fabric rather than have to click on each designer individually.
    (I'd love the fabric bundle should I be lucky.)

    Fabric or yarn! Either is fine by me!

  80. Since I both knit and quilt I can't make up my mind which I prefer! I guess I'd say fabric because my yarn stash is huge; I can tell you how much is in my fabric stash so it's obviously not enough!

    Wishing you all the best in your new online venture.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What a lovely shop - would love to visit. The fabrics are gorgeous but I'm in love with the wool!
    I am already an avid follower and even have you on my sidebar as a daily must read.
    Congrats on new shop.

    ReplyDelete
  82. wow! this is pretty great.

    i would love to receive either prize :)

    i have a small suggestion for your site. i love the design and the colours, and thecraft section is easy to navigate until you get to your designer fabrics. it would be good if you could a) add pictures of the most iconic print (or FQ set or something) with a designer's name, or b) offer another option of sorting designer fabric, perhaps by line? i know a few people who know names of lines and not designers so this might be a good way to make navigating that section a little easier. otherwise, it looks lovely!

  87. i would prefer the fabric please.
    as for your website: the wall with all the different colored products is fabulous - fantatic visual appeal - as for fabrics, when I click on fabric packs, only two come up. It isn't as easy to go right to your fabric, at least for first pass, for me. wish you the best of luck!

  132. Congratulations! Website looks great. I especially like the hexie pack as when I was doing my charm quilt I found it quite hard to just buy fabric packs suitable for making hexies. Even though now I have a big stash of fabric at the time it was quite limited and I really didn't want to buy a stack of fat quarters purely to cut out a small square!
