Our tour to celebrate Canada's 150th has just begun and there's so much to share with you over the next few days, you're going to be dreaming in red and white! Don't worry, you don't need to be Canadian to enjoy the tour; we're all friendly and have enough maple syrup to go around, eh? Check the tour schedule at the bottom of this post to make sure you don't miss anything. Read more about the tour on the Emmaline Blog. There are so many prizes to give away throughout the tour, so make to follow along each day. Us bloggers wanted to thank the sponsors for their generosity, and we wanted to make sure you all know who they are, so today I'm going to introduce you to a few of them.
BringBerry Handbag Hardware and Designs offers luxurious, unique, and most importantly, shiny hardware for our bags. They're offering up a voucher as a part of our Grand Prize (enter below). I remember when Karen first started out, and she would source out unique items she couldn't find readily available. There were group orders to meet minimums, and eventually she started a facebook group just to handle all the orders. Now there's a dedicated website with online ordering and continuing to source out quality hardware. Take advantage of the discount now until June 10th. Details in the schedule at the bottom of the post.
Fabric Please! is offering several vouchers for our giveaway, to use on anything in the shop! I wrote about Fabric Please! previously and you can read more about it here. Fabric Please! has several monthly subscriptions, there's sure to be one that suits you. Not only can you find a wide range of designer fabric lines, you can get all your thread, batting and notions as well. Rita, the shop owner, takes great care with each package, and the wrapping delights me! She even includes a small extra with each order, as her way to make your package even more special.
Flare Fabrics is offering up a selection of bag making items for our giveaway. Flare Fabrics has a whole category on the website for bag making supplies, ranging from all the interfacing we need to magnetic snaps, zippers, and more! Flare Fabrics offers so many printed textured cotton solids (my favourite!) including Quilter's Linen, Painter's Canvas, and Exotic Garden Weave, plus so many staples of bag making, like Essex Linen, and different canvas and heavier wovens. Of course, if you're looking for Batiks, you've found the mother lode! They also offer free Canadian shipping on orders over $150.
Melissa at Funky Monkey Fabrics is a trailblazer in Canadian fabric shops, offering a one stop shop for all your sewing needs, including all types of fabric, notions, and interfacing. They're offering up a voucher for our giveaway, and it won't be hard to find something to spend it on! Sign up for their newsletter and/or follow them on Facebook to find out about their weekly sales. If you're ever in Varna, Ontario, consider yourself lucky, because you can stop in at the store front and see all the goodies in person!
Fiona at Tangled Blossoms Design is a new (but proud) Canadian and she makes bags, so she knows the needs of Canadian bagineers very well. She carries a wide range of Free Spirit Fabrics, and that gorgeous Tula Pink Hardware - I know you've had your eye on those shears! Not only is a voucher to Tangled Blossoms Design being offered for the giveaway, but you can also take advantage of the discount available during the tour (see details below).
Thank you so much to all our sponsors, and I really hope you check them out and discover a new favourite!
