As the Celestial Star QAL gets closer to the end (final link up opens Sept 29th - next week!!), I am excited to introduce you to one more amazing sponsor, Knotted-Thread!!
Jennifer is awesome! She makes amazing projects, has a fabulous shop with great products and prices! (she really does have great prices - which always is a good thing.) Anyway, we've been friends for a long time now, and it's been a joy getting to know her. One of the best things that always stands out to me about Jennifer, is her willingness to help people. Two years ago she organized a group on Flickr to make quilts for Hurricane Sandy victims. It was maybe one of the first experiences I've had, besides the do.Good Stitches group, where I've been able to contribute to quilts for a great cause such as this. It was a neat experience, and anyway, it really stuck with me, and made a big impact on me. and I know that little story doesn't do her justice, so I'll just say, yep, Jennifer is awesome. :) Here's some more about her fabulous shop...
Knotted-Thread is an online retail fabric shop specializing in designer fabric bundles. We stock our shop with the latest in designer fabrics to meet all of your quilting needs. Knotted-Thread offers complete line bundles as well as smaller partial bundles and custom bundles that can only be found at Knotted-Thread! We also offer notions like Aurifil thread and patterns as well as designer flannel for extra soft backing on your quilts.
Knotted-Thread was started in 2012 by Jennifer Istok. An avid quilter, Jennifer decided to start her fabric business as a side business to her elementary teaching position. She ran her business from a spare bedroom and cut, folded, and packaged all of the orders herself. Jennifer takes her business very seriously and handles every email, transaction and package personally. Knotted-Thread was Jenn's "someday" dream until one day she decided to make that someday today. Why wait for someday to start your dreams if you can make them a reality now?
Currently, Knotted-Threads is running a summer special on yardage. In the shop there is a section entitled "Summer Sale" where you can find $6 yards of fabric! Hurry over because once its gone, its gone!
She also has super great blender bundles, and mixed bundles that would be great for stash building. :)
Jennifer has generously donated a fat eight bundle of Mochi Linen Dots as part of the grand prize for anyone entering the 5+ blocks category. (prizes is combined with a $50 gift certificate to I Don't Do Dishes).
I think these are gorgeous!!!
Thank you Jennifer!!
Be sure to stop by her shop and see all the great items she has!! :)
Happy sewing everyone!!
How is it all coming along?
I am working on my quilt back and should have it finished today - with an update. Can't wait to start quilting!!! I'm super excited to start using this quilt, especially since it's starting to get really cold here. :)
