Shabby Fabrics Giveaway

Today I'd like to introduce you to one of my sponsors, Shabby Fabrics!  Jennifer is the owner of Shabby Fabrics. Their website carries a wide variety of fabrics from nearly every major manufacturer, including the world's largest selection of Lakehouse fabrics, nearly 1000 patterns and books, fat quarter sets and other pre-cuts, kits, and notions. 

My name is Jennifer Bosworth, owner of Shabby Fabrics. I am honored to be a guest at A Quilting Life.  Thank you so much, Sherri!

The Shabby Fabrics story begins here. All along while growing up, I loved arts and crafts with every ounce of my being. When it came time to choose a career and go to college, I figured I couldn't make a living crafting so I pursued an aeronautical degree and became an airline pilot. I would take my hand sewing with me on trips and stitch to my heart's content while laying over at various hotels.  The love of crafting never left me. The events of September 11, 2001 changed the entire world and definitely my own personal world in a very big way.  Soon thereafter the airlines began furloughing pilots. Both my husband (also a United pilot) and I found ourselves out of work  with no health care, two children and a mortgage. These were indeed uncertain and scary times. All of the flying experience  I had accumulated over the last 20+ years suddenly meant nothing. No one was hiring pilots. I knew I would have to reinvent myself and awaken a skill set that I never even  knew I had.  After much prayer and contemplation, I felt God urging me to do something I loved and knew a great deal about already. After all, we needed to find work right away! I applied for a business license and  began selling a few fabrics on ebay. Ten years later, we are selling fabrics from our own website worldwide and loving every moment. There is no question that God is behind the success of Shabby Fabrics. I have a wonderful staff that I enjoy working with each day. Besides buying products and deciding which projects will becomes kits, block of the month, etc, I also design a line of quilt patterns called Shabby Exclusives. Some of our designs have been featured recently in McCalls magazine. When I think to the future of our company, I remind myself to remain flexible and attentive to God's word and plan. After all, He's the author of this great book.

Blessings to you all,

Jennifer is offering one $50 gift certificate and two $25 gift certificates to Shabby Fabrics!  Here's what you need to do to enter:

  • For one entry visit Shabby Fabrics and sign up for their newsletter (come back and leave a comment here after you've done that).
  • For a second entry visit Shabby Fabrics, then come back and leave a comment about your favorite product, pattern, or fabric collection.
  • For a third entry, become a follower of the Shabby Fabrics blog, then come back and leave a comment.
I'll keep this giveaway open until Friday night and announce a winner on Saturday.  Good luck to you!

Edit...congratulations to the winners...Andee who wins the $50 gift certificate and Donna and Dawn who each win a $25 gift certificate.  I'll be contacting you all soon!
